Present Land Use
The project site is currently occupied by the San Francisco General Hospital campus located at 1001 Potrero Avenue. The site is within the P (Public Use) Use District and in a 105-E Height and Bulk District.

Document Description
The proposed project is to construct and operate a helipad on the southwestern portion of the rooftop of Wing C of the San Francisco General Hospital's main hospital building, located at 1001 Potrero Avenue. The helipad would consist of three principal elements: a 54-foot by 54-foot (3,000 square foot) helipad platform; interior modifications to the east elevator (which serves the Emergency Department) penthouse to accomodate rooftop elevator access; and an access ramp and safety rails between the helipad platform and the east bank of elevators. Helicopters would take off and land at any time of day or night and would potentially operate 365 days per year. Roughly one patient per helicopter per week (or 52 helicopters annually) is anticipated during the first year of helipad use and an average of two helicopters per day, or roughly 700 per year (with an expected maximum of three per day occasion), would be received as regional facilities become aware of more rapid access to SFGH.
