Document Description
Based on an Evaluation Study prepared by the County, the existing Acute Tower within the Highland Hospital campus does not meet current earthquake standards for hospitals as mandated by State law. Alameda County has decided to demolish various on-site buildings and replace them with a new Acute Tower, an adjoining Hub Building, Satellite Building, open space, and parking facilities. By using floor space more efficiently, the proposed project would reduce existing floor area on the campus by approximately 59,600 square feet. The proposed project would demolish the existing 230,000-square-foot Acute Care Tower as well as five on-site historic buildings (Wing C, D, F, the Auditorium, and the Clinic Buildings) that collectively house 144,000 square feet. The proposed project would construct a 230,000-square-foot replacement Acute Tower, a 20,000-square-foot Hub Building, and a 65,000-square-foot Satellite Building. The proposed project would increase on-site landscaped area by 49,000 square feet.
