what is a soft story retrofit?

Credit: Los Angeles times, April 15 2016

​During an Earthquake, multi-story buildings with open front ground floor parking ("soft story"), are extremely vulnerable. Buildings collapsed in the 1989 Loma Prieta and the 1994 Northridge earthquakes.

In order to reduce structural deficiencies and improve the performance of these buildings the city of Los Angeles passed Ordinance 183893, which requires the retrofit of pre-1978 wood-frame soft-story buildings and non-ductile concrete buildings.
