On cnn.com today:

San Francisco's 'leaning' skyscraper tilted up to 3 inches last year

From the article: "As of the end of last year, the tower has leaned a total of 24 inches to the west and 7.9 inches to the north. It has settled around 18 inches deep into the ground.
Though engineers are now working to stabilize the skyscraper, a city hearing last week revealed that the tilting will continue for several more months. Experts have blamed nearby construction projects and a process known as "dewatering" for weakening the soil beneath the tower..."

On YouTube an engineer has started a series of videos concerning the sinking & tilting of the Millennium building. Herewith is the link to the first video in the series. The first video was posted on January 21,2022 on the site called Building Integrity. The video is an introduction. Future videos I think will be quite interesting.
