Could Light Rail Tunnel Crack Building?

From The Seattle Times:

The owner of a brick building across the street from the Capitol Hill Station on the University Link extension is concerned that drilling the tunnel below the building may cause damage.

This is possible but unlikely. And it raises a bigger concern: in an earthquake zone, if you are worried about tunneling damaging your building, how will it fare in our overdue Big One?
