Watch for Falling Window Panes
Unique news from KOMO News came in yesterday when a window pane fell more than 300 feet onto a parking lot just a block from Pike Place Market.
The incident occurred at the 1521 2nd Avenue condos from a unit on the 30th floor. Apparently a double pane window in an empty unit broke. And while no one was hurt, it has certainly raised some concerns about how a window could break and fall for no reason.
The manager of the building told KOMO News that they have hired a building science and professional engineering firm to investigate. The window space and the curtainwall will be inspected for any damage or potential risk factors.
