San Francisco building officials have filed two notices of violation against the owners of the controversial Millennium Tower, reports J.K. Dineen of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The action is the latest chapter in the story of the luxury building that has reportedly sunk about 16 inches.

The Department of Building Inspections (DBI) "found spalling and leaking in the underground parking garage, as well as repairs that had been done without permits," reports Dineen. He writes:

DBI ordered the building owner to obtain permits for the work already done and provide an engineering report on the condition of water intrusion and cracking in the garage walls," say

A second violation charges that two ramps on the Millennium complex’s ground floor — one connects the 58-story condominium tower to the adjacent 11-story podium, and the other goes to the rear porte cochere — are steeper than the maximum slope allowed by state building codes. The handrails were also found to be out of compliance. Both must be corrected within 90 days.
