Tomorrow the Planning Commission will hold a special 10am hearing to finally vote on the California Pacific Medical Center Long Range Development Plan Project. Tomorrow's hearing will be two-fold: first, the commission must certify in the Final Environmental Impact Report. Once that's done, they have a whole slew of approvals to get the project underway. On top of their own Conditional Use and Office Development Authorization approvals, the commission will vote whether or not to recommend approvals for things like Planning Code and General Plan amendments, for which the Board of Supervisors have the final vote.
The project has been in the works for a few years now, and includes construction projects at 3 sites around the city. The Cathedral Hill Medical Center will include a new acute care hospital, a new medical office building, and a pedestrian tunnel under Van Ness Avenue to connect the two facilities.
The proposal for St. Luke’s Hospital includes the construction of a new five-story, 80-bed acute care hospital, sited on the campus’ existing surface parking lot and over a portion of the to-be-vacated San Jose Avenue.
The Davies Campus would include the creation of a four-story Neuroscience Institute over existing parking lots.
