ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The athletic department at the University of Michigan is moving forward with a $168 million project to build a sports complex.

The Ann Arbor News (https://bit.ly/1CDt3fq ) reports department officials want the multi-use facility built on a 17-acre property purchased by the school last year. But approval is needed for the $2.4 million demolition and abatement of a light industrial and office building currently on the site.

The Board of Regents is expected to vote Thursday on the proposed demolition.

Interim athletic director Jim Hackett says the building formerly owned by Edwards Brothers Malloy isn’t useful for any university purpose.

The new 310,000-square-foot complex, known as the Stephen M. Ross Athletic South Competition and Performance Project, will be used for a variety of Division I sports.
