Okuno Building - Construction Induced Movement (100831-1537)

Okuno Building - Construction Induced Movement

The construction of the large building immediately to the left side of the Okuno Building has damaged the foundation of the A-side of the building, and induced movement.  Now - where the A-side and the B-side were joined - seventy-eight years ago - there are cracks everywhere in the building where the two halves of the building were joined (the building is actually two buildings - joined in the middle).  The A-side is moving away from the B-Side.  It's not dangerous, but it doesn't look good, and it's a shame how the large building construction caused the damage, but they say (or so I've heard) "No - nothing to do with us...".
