Sometime today, California Pacific Medical Center and City Hall are expected to announce a compromise which will allow the development of a downsized Cathedral Hill campus to move forward and ensure the rebuilding of St. Luke’s over in the Mission.
With the paperwork having been filed to demolish the existing Cathedral Hill Hotel early last year but CPMC’s pre-construction teams sent packing last August, the City and Sutter Health have been wrangling over the rewritten terms for CPMC’s Cathedral Hill campus which was approved by Planning, but then appealed, ever since.
According to the Business Times, the expected compromise calls for CPMC’s Cathedral Hill complex to be downsized from an orignally proposed 555 beds to 274 while CPMC’s St. Luke’s hospital would be expanded from an existing 80 beds to 120.
UPDATE: The compromise has been confirmed with 304 beds at CPMC’s Cathedral Hill campus versus the originally reported 274. The revised plan will be reviewed by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors on March 12. If approved, the project will likely take until the end of the decade to complete.
