Present Land Use
Public/Quasi-Public and Neighborhood/Community Commercial general plan designation, Agriculture Planned Development (A[PD]) zoning district.
Document Description
Kaiser Foundation Hospitals (Kaiser Permanente), the project applicant, proposes to demolish the existing 250,000-square-foot (sf) hospital and construct a new 685,000-sf hospital, a new central utility plant (energy center), and a six-level parking structure at their San José Medical Center campus. In addition, approximately 200 surface parking would be constructed at the demolished existing hospital site. Projected future campus improvements would include demolition of two one-story 10,100 sf medical office buildings, construction of a 250,000-sf outpatient facility, a six-level parking garage, and surface parking. The proposed hospital replacement and longer-term programmatic expansions would require a revision to the existing Planned Development (PD) to allow for site layout modifications and increased overall building capacity within the PD boundary.
