Bakaly in the ER 7/7/22 Deep Fact Check #1

FALSE CLAIMS BY BAKALY/BCHD REGARDING DOWNSIZING BUILDINGS

Bakaly claims in Easy Reader July 7, 2022

“BCHD’s original plan has been pared down to a current version in which the main building’s tallest point is 82.2 feet. The original hospital’s tallest point is 76 feet, built in 1958, before the surrounding neighborhoods.”


NOT TRUE

FALSE 1: Many surrounding homes predated the 1960 completion of the hospital. Most predate the 1970 expansion of the hospital. All predate development of the Medical Office Buildings.


FALSE 2: Only 0.3% of the campus buildings are 76-feet and they are NOT located on the far campus edge up against homes.


FALSE 3: The Development has been INCREASED, not DECREASED and buffer space was ELIMINATED.


BCHDs original plan (p25/29) May 2017 CWG Meeting Presentation – BUFFER SPACE

BCHD committed to a strategy that would buffer surrounding homes with parking and green space.


2017 BUFFER COMMITMENT



BCHD EIR NOP June 27, 2019 – BYE BYE BUFFER SPACE

BCHD’s official CEQA NOP showed a campus plan with NO BUFFER, build out to the edges of the site, in direct opposition to the commitment made by BCHD in May of 2017 to the public and the CWG.


Height 60-ft (p13/68)

Surface Buildings 592,700 sf (p13/68)

New Underground Parking 160,000 sf (p13/68)

Total Development 752,700 sf (added)


2019 NO BUFFER




BCHD CWG Presentation June 15, 2020 – HEIGHT INCREASED, SIZE INCREASED

BCHD presented to the CWG on Monday 6/15 and approved the never before seen design on 6/17/20 over the objections of the local CWG members and the public.


Height 76-ft (p33/39)

Total Occupied Building 484,900 sf (p23/39)

New Underground Parking 0 sf (p13/68)

New Aboveground Parking Ramp 292,500 sf (28/39)

Total Development 777,400 sf (added)


Height +26% over 2019

Aboveground Size +31% over 2019

2020 BIGGER + TALLER



2021 TALLER YET!


BCHD Draft EIR March 2021 – HEIGHT INCREASED


Height 103-ft (p3.1-32 of DEIR)

Size unchanged


Height +35% from 2020

Height +72% from 2019

Size +31% from 2019 due to moving 160,000 sf of parking to a 10-

story ramp at Prospect and Diamond


99%+ OF CAMPUS BUILDINGS ARE 52-FEET OR SHORTER


HEIGHT OF EXISTING CAMPUS

Current campus has one single 968 sf room “penthouse” at 76-feet tall in the center of campus with minimum visual impact. That 968 sf represents only 0.3% of the 312,000 sf campus floorspace. The other 99%+of floorspace is 52-feet of lower.


BCHD’s FICTION that the campus is 76-feet tall is no different a human wearing a dunce hat, measuring at the peak of it, and claiming to their doctor that reflects their height. It is a complete FICTION and MISREPRESENTATION by BCHD.



This has been repeated to BCHD over and over and yet they MISREPRESENT IT at EVERY CHANCE POSSIBLE!
