Top half of the wall is brick, the lwoer half is stone. The bottom part is bowing in significantly.
The bowing in this foundation wall were disrupting the stairs. In order for the stairs to be replaced, this section of the wall needed to be removed and replaced with new foundation blocks.
This section of the condo unit had a bowing wall issue similar to the other section. It also had sagging floor joists, and so would require a structural beam to be added along with SmartJacks.
This picture shows where the new block wall meets the old bowing wall in the one section needing replacement by the stairs. The view of the old wall shows the severity of the bowing of the foundation wall.

Under the sagging floor, SmartJacks were installed beneath a supplemental, steel beam to provide additional support and to lift the floor slightly. The floor was aged, brittle concrete, and so the base of the SmartJacks were installed on top of engineered stones, new concrete poured in around afterwards.
