WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The city of Worcester has given the College of the Holy Cross the go-ahead for a nearly $72 million overhaul and expansion of the school’s indoor athletic center.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that the city Planning Board unanimously approved a project that would double the size of the Hart Center, built in 1975.

Holy Cross has raised two-thirds of the estimated construction costs.

The Hart Center is a 138,000-square-foot facility that has a basketball court, ice hockey rink and swimming pool.

A college lawyer says the project involves renovating 46,000-square-feet of existing space and building a 139,000-square-foot addition. The new facility will include a full-size indoor turf field, an auxiliary basketball court, locker rooms, weight training and exercise rooms, locker rooms, team meeting rooms and office space.
