San Francisco's Millennium Tower has been found to have sunk 16 inches since it opened eight years ago—more than the 6 inches it was predicted to settle in its lifetime. What should be done now?

The building's owners should bankroll the drilling of deeper piles to shore up the building; had they done it right the first time, this wouldn't have happened.
The transit agency that is building a station nearby should pay at least part of the cost--the tower's design won awards when it was first built, and the excavation caused unforeseen problems.
Nothing yet. It's not a safety issue right now, and the problem is being blown out of proportion by the media.
