Mayor Ed Lee has reached an agreement with California Pacific Medical Center officials over their plans to build five new medical facilities in San Francisco, including a massive new hospital on Van Ness Avenue....
The agreement with the city, which still must be approved by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors, would allow CPMC to construct five new medical facilities. The centerpiece is a new 555-bed hospital on Van Ness Avenue
at the site of the now-closed Cathedral Hill Hotel, as well as a nine-story office building on the same site
that aren't allowed under current zoning rules.
