HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Harrisburg University has released renderings of its new building in Pennsylvania’s capital city.

The project now will include 17 floors and cost the university about $100 million and approximately $30 million will be spent by a hospitality partner that will add a 197-room hotel and conference center with a restaurant inside the tower. Pennlive.com reports the hotel partner has not yet been named and no tax-exempt bonds will be used to pay for the hotel or restaurant.

The university said Monday that the school and the hotelier would share space on 10 floors and the remaining seven floors would be entirely for the university’s use.

Officials say they plan to start construction by late July of this year for a planned opening in summer 2021.
