Palo Alto approves Stanford Hospital expansion
Palo Alto Online

Stanford University Medical Center’s four-year quest to get Palo Alto’s permission for a massive expansion of its facilities glided past the finish line Monday night when an enthusiastic City Council voted to approve what members routinely say is the largest development project in the city’s history.

In a series of 8-0 votes (Councilman Larry Klein recused himself) that several members called the most important the council will make in many years, the council paved the way for Project Renewal — a dramatic expansion of Stanford’s hospital facilities that will add 1.3 million square feet of new development to the city.
