The Harrisburg University has released renderings of the new university tower to be located at the corner of Chestnut and South Third streets.
Ground breaking is set to start in late July and the project is expected to be completed by summer 2021
The $100-million tower will include 17 floors. The educational space in the tower is slated to accommodate at least 1,000 new students and a health science education center.
The university will have classrooms and training space for advanced manufacturing and interactive media programs.
Harrisburg-based Reynolds Enterprises and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., based in Baltimore, have been hired to support Butler County architect Alex Wing of Stantec on preconstruction plans for the building.
