San Francisco Business Times

“It’s official,” said officials at California Pacific Medical Center. Mayor Ed Lee earlier this afternoon signed a bill that permits CPMC to proceed with its $2 billion new Cathedral Hill hospital and a related rebuild of St. Luke’s Hospital.

The once-troubled and long-delayed construction project can now begin. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the compromise plan on Tuesday. The hospital hopes to begin demolition of the Cathedral Hill Hotel at Geary Ave. and Van Ness Blvd. by the end of the year.
