wall collapsed at the construction excavation for the Sedona and Slate Apartments on Clarendon Blvd in Rosslyn. The cave-in prompted evacuation of the adjacent Swansen Apartments. Whatever the condition of the building at that time, the subsequent earthquake and hurricane surely added additional stress. The good news is that the construction site now looks like it can withstand any cataclysm. That bad news is that the Swansen Apartments have been condemned. A resident removing belongings today had moved into his apartment one day before the wall collapsed.
If you've had some bad experiences over the past month, consider yourself relatively lucky.

That aint good at all!
Yeah someone is getting sued. The architect...the engineer...or the contractor and if I were a resident I would want in on that action.
Oh, this is too bad. I'm just hoping the apartment I got isn't as unstable and messed up as this one. Scary!
Good thing that the apartment I am renting right now is safe from any kind of cataclysm because of its architectural engineering. That one is indeed very scary.
Fortunately my cousin wasn’t there when it happened. I feel sorry for the residents there.
That's why here in Australia, it is recommended that your building be inspected and must pass the NABERS accreditation to avoid unfortunate circumstances like this.
