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.
