Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center Project
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The Project location is on and adjacent to the 15.34-acre Kaiser Los Angeles Medical Center (Medical Center), which is located along Sunset Boulevard
between North Alexandria Avenue and North Vermont Avenue in the Hollywood Community Plan Area of the City of Los Angeles. The Medical Center and the properties proposed for redevelopment are within a Unified Hospital Development boundary. The existing Medical Center campus consists of a collection of medical buildings and parking structures, several of which are proposed for demolition as part of the Project. Existing uses to be demolished include 199,891 square feet of Medical uses, 15,517 square feet of Commercial and Residential uses, and 19,199 square feet of Parking Building.
The Project would be located on the following sites:
• Site 1: 1345 North Vermont Avenue; 1326/1328 North New Hampshire Avenue; 1317, 1321, and 1325 North Vermont Avenue; 1329/1331 North Vermont Avenue and 1337/1339 North Vermont Avenue
• Site 2: 4760 Sunset Boulevard
• Site 3: 1505 North Edgemont Street
• Site 4: 1526 North Edgemont Street
• Site 5: 1517 North Vermont Avenue
• Site 6: 4950 West Sunset Boulevard
The Project proposes to expand the existing Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center (Medical Center) campus by replacing facilities and adding new buildings. The Project would proceed under a Master Plan/Development Plan Permit for the Medical Center. The Project would be developed in three consecutive phases. Phase 1 of the Project would include demolition of existing commercial and residential structures and surface parking lots on Sites 1 and 2, and two medical office buildings (MOBs) on Sites 3 and 4. Phase 1 would also include construction of a parking structure and MOB on Site 1 and a procedure center addition to the existing MOB on Site 2. Phase 2 of the Project would include the demolition of an existing parking structure and MOB space on Site 5 and construction of a new, larger parking structure with ground floor commercial retail space. Phase 2 would also include construction on Site 4 of either an MOB (Option A) or a hospital addition (Option B). Phase 3 of the Project would include construction of a new MOB on Site 3 and a parking structure on the south side of the existing parking structure on Site 6. If Option A is selected for Phase 2, the MOB constructed at Site 3 would be smaller (41,500 square feet). If Option B is selected for Phase 2, the MOB at Site 3 would be larger (73,500 square feet). As such, the smaller MOB is also considered part of Option A, while the larger MOB is considered part of Option B.
The proposed buildings for all three phases would total 401,100 square feet under Option A or 433,100 square feet under Option B, with an additional 533,400 square feet of parking structure area.
