Leicester University is seeking to transform a Victorian building into a world-class business school.
The University of Leicester wants to convert its existing post graduate teaching centre in Brookfield House off London Road.
The plans are set to go before the council's planning committee in the coming weeks and planning officers have recommended the project be given permission.
A spokesman for the university said: "The school will gain an attractive and unique identity and focus for students and staff within the School of Business with the Victorian House at Brookfield as the memorable centre piece of the campus."
The plans call for the demolition of the mid-20th Century extensions to the Victorian property and constructing a new three storey extension and lecture theatre.
The university has suggested up to 750 students will use the new business school along with 210 members of staff.
The development is part of the university's wider £500 million project to improve its estates, including the renovation of the Percy Gee building and a redevelopment of Freemen's Common.
