TitleÂ supplied by cataloger. His Eminence Roger Cardinal Mahony is seen wearing a red hardhat, standing in front a section of the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angeles' campanile. Construction began in October 1998 with work on the Parking Garage. Excavation for the foundations of the Cathedral began in May 1999. 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.
