Is there any ground floor retail planned for either of these? If not I would be sad that we lost so much on Van Ness and Geary.

How could we loose what we never had? This will be a vast improvement over what is there now and will also restore the street line on Van Ness. Remember too that the medical office building will be built across the street, which will remove two blighted buildings at the NE corner of Van Ness and Geary. CPMC's core business has nothing to do with retail (except for medical center gift and sports medicine shops) and everything to do with operating a world class medical center.

It will be great to have the street line back on the west side of Van Ness, it's terrible the way it is now. I'm referring to the east side of Van Ness where there used to be a 24 hour doughnut shop, a furniture store, a Peruvian restaurant and Geary where there was a couple bars. I'm sure street level will look nicer when these buildings are finished, but Van Ness is becoming more and more auto-oriented as pedestrians have fewer reasons to go there.

Got it. The last couple of times I've walked up or down Van Ness between California and Civic Center, I've found it to be consistently filthy, with fewer enticements for going there. I agree.

Interior demolition started in September, and the ceremonial groundbreaking was held last week and demolition is expected to take until April 2014.

Then excavation and shoring is expected to take the rest of 2014 and the project will finish in 2019 (!) according to the milestone schedule:

I was able to drive through the area earlier today, though not enough time to take any pictures. Demolition seems to still be progressing at a steady pace and looks pretty similar to what is pictured above. I'm still fairly surprised this whole thing was able to go through, and I'm glad because I certainly won't miss what was there despite its history.

4 months

Drilling has started at the southwest corner (Geary @ Franklin) of the site.

Here is that area on FEB 21st:

The same comparison for the southeast section (Geary @ Van Ness):

Here's the mess across Van Ness and going down Geary that will soon be demolished to make way for the medical office building.

It looks like they have reached bottom with excavation. Seemed to go pretty quickly, but the site is at varying grades, so probably easier to dig out than the size of the site would suggest.

Malcom is on-site with drill rigs (presumably for caissons) and cement mixers. This should be in full swing before we know it and will likely be a lot of cranes.

Looks like excavation is basically complete. From SocketSite:

Quote:
For those wondering how much deeper the massive hole being dug for CPMC’s Cathedral Hill Hospital project will go, the answer is: not much. In fact, the end of the project’s excavation phase was officially marked this afternoon with a “bottoming out” celebration to commemorate the milestone.

In a couple of weeks, two tower cranes will begin to rise on the site. And at the end of next month, the new hospital’s foundation will begin to be poured.

Cranes going up today.

I have no idea where literally most of my pictures went - they literally disappeared from most of my posts. Weird.

First crane is up. Why does it seem so short? I thought the building would be at least as tall as Daniel Burnham Court.

The original design was 290' which is 60' taller than Daniel Burnham Court, but now it'll be 4 feet shorter than it.

Progress on Van Ness. Seems like that steel went up in just a few weeks!

Wow, no kidding. I haven't been over that way in awhile. Thanks for the update.

Sutter Health Hospital Construction - 10/20/2015

You can see the new technology to protect the building in an earthquake, the broad metal plates with the rust red color.

Also, note the satellite dishes on the Channel 4 television building which is slated to be torn down & a high rise replacement.

This view if from the 14th floor of the Essex Fox Plaza.
