Construction on a new athletic practice facility at USF is underway. The Malloy Athletics Practice Facility will be an elevated one-story horizontal addition to the existing War Memorial Gymnasium (WMG) building, The new building will provide expanded practice facilities for USF’s intercollegiate athletic programs, which in turn will release practice space and time slots for other USF teams and campus events in War Memorial Gym and the Sobrato Center.
The approximately 15,500 square feet addition will be built over the existing Hayes Healy surface parking lot, immediately east of WMG, west of Hayes-Healy Residence Hall, and north of Gillson Residence Hall.. The addition will contain one new basketball practice court and two half courts. A new mezzanine level containing restrooms, coaches’ offices, and athletic conference rooms will provide interior access to the mezzanine level in War Memorial Gym.
Construction is expected to last 12-14 months. The Hayes Healy underground garage will be closed for the duration of the project. A perimeter fence has been placed around the project site for safety. Pedestrian pathways around the project site have been created and may sometimes change due to construction requirements. Please respect directional signage and use caution in the area.
Construction activity in August will center on the drilling and placement of the structure’s micropiles and foundations.
