(pam) in the south bay. san jose is expected to join forces with google ... on a huge development deal in downtown san jose. kron four's rob fladeboe has the latest on the deal. it will take years and there are many obstacles to overcome but the west side of san jose is about to undergo a major transformation. after much public testimony, the city council will be voting on whether to approve a land sale to google for a massive transit village and campus west of highway 87. google is offering to pay more than $100 million dollars city owned land surrounding diridon station. in total, google would develop some 50 acres to include a mega campus with office space for for some 20,000 workers. business leaders are hailing the development as a game changer for the city but critics, some of whom have undertaken a hunger strike in opposition, worry that it will only contribute to an already dire shortage of affordable housing public testimonyrob fladeboe/san jose "....in the early going the public testimony was running about three to one in favor of the google deal. the (ken) wall street took a

dive today amid fading enthusiasm for the u-s - china trade truce. the dow jones industrial average plunged 799 points, its worst day in almost two months and fourth worst single day loss ever. the nasdaq fell almost four percent, while the s-and-p lost more than three percent. analysts blame the plunge on doubts over the trade truce, as well as concerns that u-s economic growth is slowing. the markets are closed tomorrow to honor president george h-w bush. (pam) developing tonight.... there is a plan in the works to fix the infamous sinking and leaning millennium tower in san francisco. kron4's maureen kelly talked with the structural engineer behind the new plan... who says the leaning... can be reversed.
6:08 pm
plans for the estimated 100- million dollar fix are being submitted to the city today. here's an illustration of what it will look like.the structual engineer behind this design involves installing more than 50 concrete and steele piles 250 feet down to bedrock under the corner of the foundation that's sinking. it's referred to as underpinning that the engineer says is commonly used in construction.... what's unusual about this is the size of the building, very large and the capacity of the piles. each one of the piles is designed to resist 1,000,500 pounds of loadit's a solution that is expected not to only prevent the slow sink that's been happening....but also reverse it. by putting piles only on the north and west sides, we will allowed for continued additional minor settlements on the south and east sides which naturally happens with all buildings, and as it occurs we expect that some of the tilt that has occurred to the building in the past will actually come

out of the building and allow it to become plumbut that could take as long as fifty years.this agreement was hammered out during mediation between the homeowners association and the luxury condo developer. those owners who've had to sell have taken a loss since this problem came to light and some critics say this expensive fix won't restore the building to it's former status. a realtor who says he sold a 13 million dollar penthouse unit after the problem was exposed disagrees.it's unlike any other building in san francisco. i do believe it's going to come back and it is disappointing that units that treated during this time have done so to discount, to be expected but i think that discount is going to disappear after the building is structurally correctif the design for the fix is approved construction could start in the spring. one lane of traffic on both mission and fremont will likely be impacted...possibly as long as the year and a half it's projected to take until the job is complete.maureen kelly kron4 news. coming up at six.. chilling video of a robbery at an east bay car wash.. reaction from customers and the plea for help from police. also ahead.. homes near hubs ... one state senator wont give up... he tries again to clear the way for housing near transit and job centers all over the state... and next... an emotional 24 hours in the
