Massachusetts General Hospital received approval Oct. 14 from the Boston Planning and Development Agency board for a 1 million-square-foot, $2 billion expansion, The Boston Globe reported.

The project includes two patient care towers, additional beds and new facilities for cardiac and cancer patients.

The hospital would build an entryway for a potential city train station and improve sidewalks and bike lanes in the area.

In addition, the hospital said it would provide financial support to the community and give up a hospital building for affordable housing.

State health officials still must approve the expansion.
