On the 2700 block of Charlotte. Two homes currently under construction with six planned in total.

Re: Brick apartments at 4529-31 Broadway.

I'll bet they were built on fill dirt that had not been allowed to settle long enough before constructing them. That is what happened with Chouteau Courts on Independence Avenue at Tracy. The foundations started to fail, and the building facades cracked.

A large section of brick has been removed on the south side of the Hawthorne Plaza building in what I assume is major facade replacement work due to water damage.

Brick apartments at 4529-31 Broadway.

Does anyone else think the brick apartment building at 4529-31 Broadway is leaning, or has sunk a bit?

I was sitting on Broadway waiting for cars to advance through the stop sign, and it appeared to me it is.
