USF Morsani College of Medicine and Heart Institute
First vertical construction in Water Street Tampa
Design-build contract with architect HOK and builder Skanska
Estimated cost: $173 million
The USF Health Morsani College of Medicine and Heart Institute has moved downtown, bringing approximately 1,800 students, faculty and staff to live, work and study along the downtown waterfront as a key anchor at Water Street Tampa.
The USF Health Taneja College of Pharmacy will start classes there in 2023. By moving within a mile of its primary teaching hospital Tampa General Hospital, USF will attract the brightest students and faculty, and will increase federal research dollars to fight heart disease.
