Kaiser Permanente’s plans for expansion are very much alive and kicking.
The Oakland-based health provider filed an environmental review for its three-phase development with the city this month, detailing its intentions for a renovation and expansion of its existing Los Angeles Medical Center, Urbanize reported.
The 15-acre campus stretches along Sunset Boulevard between Vermont and Alexandria avenues.
The proposal calls for the demolition of 215,000 square feet of existing space, as well as the construction of over 425,000 square feet of new medical facilities and 655,000 square feet of parking.
Phase one of the project, which includes demolition and preliminary construction, is expected to take place between 2020 and 2030. Phase three wouldn’t begin until 2028 with a tentative completion date of 2030.
The expansion at the campus, designed by Perkins + Will, was prompted by a Southern California law mandating the replacement of aging facilities before 2030. [Urbanize] – Natalie Hoberman
