Even at 350 feet or 400 feet this would mean a new tallest for Harrisburg.

Harrisburg University plans to build city's tallest tower
The growing university will issue a request for proposals on Thursday to find development teams capable of erecting what could be the tallest building in the capital city when it opens in 2021.

President Eric Darr said the proposed mixed-use tower could be 36 stories and cost $130 million to $150 million to develop

Preliminary plans for the new tower, which could be 10 stories taller than any other building in Harrisburg, also call for student housing with at least 300 beds and other amenities including a 144-room boutique hotel, restaurant and executive conference center.

"This will be the biggest project in Harrisburg in at least 30 years," Darr said. "You're not going to find people who are local. This will attract national players that build large health-science, mixed-use buildings."

The university will select finalists by Feb. 23 and make its selection by April 10. Darr said he hopes to have a final agreement in place with a development team by the end of June to begin detailed design and approvals with the city.

The goal is to have shovels in the ground by the summer of 2019. Construction is expected to take about two years
