Concerns remain about city’s tilting, sinking buildings
The high number of sinking and tilting buildings around Georgetown continues to attract the attention of City Hall and officials say that the buildings could pose a threat to life and limb and should have been constructed properly from the inception.
Recently, several buildings have been identified as having poor foundations subsequently causing them to lean or sink. One such building located at Hill Street, Lodge has been extensively discussed at several statutory meetings at City Hall.
Several concerns were raised after it was discovered that no piles had been driven for the building’s foundation and as such it was leaning.
