Still too tall, say Seattle hospital’s neighbors

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, January 9, 2008
Officials at the Seattle-based Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center say the hospital is nearly out of room in its current buildings and, to accommodate growth expected in the next two decades, would need to more than double the number of beds and the size of buildings. Neighbors have panned the hospital's initial plan, which included buildings as high as 240 feet, and a subsequent proposal that cut the maximum height to 160 feet.
