The formal Blessing and Dedication took place on September 2, 2002. Upon completion, the site of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels was 5.6 acres bound by Temple Street, Grand Avenue, Hill Street and the Hollywood Freeway. The 12-story high building can accommodate 3,000+ worshippers, and includes the cathedral proper, a 2.5-acre plaza, several gardens and waterfalls, the Cathedral Center, and the cathedral rectory, the residence of Cardinal Roger Mahony. The Spanish architect, the world renowned, Pritzker Architecture Prize winning Professor Jose Rafael Moneo, designed it. The final cost of the new cathedral was $189.7 million.
