After a year in which the beleaguered Millennium Tower in San Francisco underwent an unsuccessful “fix” that ended up exacerbating its sinking into the SoMa mud, a new plan is afoot for 2022.

But a Bay Area consulting engineer said in a letter to city supervisors that the structural fix itself is dubious. Supe Aaron Peskin has also been outspoken in his questioning of the goings-on at 301 Mission.
