$2 billion-plus transit terminal. nbc bay area obtained this signed confidentiality agreement between the millennium tower and the transit authority. the deal dates to 2010 long before the sinking problem became public. in the agreement any documents exchanged during or as a result of the meeting that day would be deemed for all purposes confidential to the extent allowed by law. the agreement even offered to keep any evidence of what was discussed from being disclosed in lawsuits. while the february 2010 agreement does not exactly spell out what's not to be disclosed, nbc bay area has learned it dealt with millennium's sinking problem and the data therein. a month after the deal was made in march 2010 a transbay engineer who signed the secrecy pact declared the first accounting of the sinking problem as confidential information and not for public release. the engineer sent the report to the developer and other officials who signed the secrecy
deal, including a san francisco city attorney who add vised the authority on construction-related legal issues. we reached out to the players in the talks. develope the city attorney's office had two representatives at the talks. they too said they had no expectation of secrecy afterward. what about the transbay authority's document designated secrecy for the data? transbay officials could not explain that. the city attorney's office did acknowledge that the agency mistakenly labeled two sets of sinking data as confidential. it is not clear when that error was discovered. and we do know that, mistake or not, it was in july when transbay officials finally alerted mill lenium that they would no longer honor any disclosure deal. the building 16 inches and is
