Great new for Harrisburg! It's quite the underrated city and could use some attention.

God for Harrisburg! Any word on the estimated height in feet?
No designs released yet - but at least 36 stories and expected to be the new tallest. Here is a story from Harrisburg's ABC affiliate - ABC27.

Here is a scaled rendering of the new Harrisburg University tower, at 36-stories and a "conservative" estimate of 468 feet in height. Actual designs to be released in June.

333 Market, Harrisburg's current tallest building, stands at 22-stories and 340 feet.

New tower will be 17-floors, but city's third-tallest at 284'

Plans for 17-story, $135 million Harrisburg University tower project approved

Harrisburg University’s plan to construct a 17-story school building and hotel in downtown Harrisburg received unanimous approval from members of city council Tuesday evening.

But that was not before university officials were grilled about how they will contract construction of the $135 million project, specifically whether they have done enough to create employment opportunities for local individuals and companies.

“Short of almost walking along the street, we’ve tried to do everything to reach those who are interested,” said Diane Tokarsky, an attorney representing the university.

Earlier this year, university officials released drawings of the proposed building, showing a 17-story tower reaching skyward at the corner of Chestnut and South Third streets.

Why does every Harrisburg project get scaled down to below 12 stories - and they are all boxy and look the same? The skyline looks no different than the 1980's really - and I just flew in a week ago and it's depressing. So much for growth and modern, tall buildings. Sad for a capital city. The new HU tower is embarrassing.
