TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The University of South Florida took the first formal step to build its new medical school downtown, with a trustees’ work group voting unanimously for the project.

The dean of the Morsani College of Medicine unveiled renderings Thursday of a 12-story, $157 million building in downtown Tampa on property donated by the owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team.

A 10-story medical building and a parking garage for 1,800 vehicles are planned.

The Tampa Tribune (https://bit.ly/1wOm2rM) reports that USF will ask for $62 million from the state for the project.
