YES, IT IS A 13 STORY BUILDING LYING ON THE GROUND.

Anybody who bought a condo here sure has a problem.
Talk about a collapsed market?

And now, the story in pictures.

First, the apartment building was constructed.

Then, an underground garage was being dug on the south side,
to a depth of 15 feet (4.6 meters).

The excavated dirt was being piled up on the north side, to a height of 32 ft (10 meters).

Heavy rains resulted in water seeping into the ground.

The building experienced uneven lateral pressure from south and north.

This resulted in a lateral pressure of 3,000 tonnes, which was greater than what the pilings could tolerate. The building began to tilt..

Then it began to shift and the “hollow” concrete pilings were snapped due to the uneven lateral pressures.

And thus was born The Eighth Wonder of the World.

If the buildings were closer together it would have resulted in a domino effect.

They built 13 stories on grade, with no basement, and tied it all down to hollow pilings with no rebar.
