Phase Two Development Plan Applications Deemed Complete
December 22, 2015
The city of Santa Monica has accepted for filing Providence Saint John’s Health Center’s Phase Two development applications, including a South Campus Master Plan and development review permit applications for eight new buildings. The plan calls for the construction of a new facility to house the John Wayne Cancer Institute as well as a new education and conference center and additional ambulatory care facilities.
The June 5 determination from the city is a milestone, kicking off the city’s formal review of the Phase Two Development Plan. The parameters for the plan are contained in Providence Saint John’s development agreement with the city that was created following the 1994 Northridge earthquake to authorize the rebuilding of the core hospital facilities and provide a framework for future development on the campus.
The plan creates a world-class Health Center complex and an integrated North and South Campus. The campus will include ample research space for the vital translational science performed at the John Wayne Cancer Institute and will allow for its continued growth. Another major goal of the plan is to promote health and wellness programs and other research and ambulatory services that can contribute to community health initiatives.
The design includes enhancements to the pedestrian realm to better connect Mullin Plaza on the North Campus, across Santa Monica Boulevard, to a new plaza—Saint John’s Square—on the South Campus and an upgraded 21st Street “living street” that leads to a new south garden along Broadway.
