Sutter Medical Center Progress
Last month the Energy Center off 29th Street was demolished shortly after the power center was switchover to the new Energy Center in the basement of Sutter Capitol Pavilion. Currently, foundation work is under way for the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center with steel erection planned to begin in late 2010. On Wednesday, the base for the tower crane was installed in preparation of assembling the midrise building; it should be quite a site to see this tower rise to its final height of 153.5 feet.
Sutter Medical Center’s massive expansion features a development that calls for consolidating two major medical facilities – Sutter Medical Center and Sutter General Hospital – into one single campus. The last estimated cost to build the Midtown project was $665 million.
