Project duration: Construction is scheduled to begin in December 2022 and to be completed in December 2024.

As part of the creation of the Sylvan Adams Sports Science Institute, announced on August 31, 2022, McGill University will transform four of its row houses on Pine Avenue into a complex comprising state-of-the-art testing labs, training suites, research offices, and meeting rooms. The row houses are located between the Montreal Neurological Institute and the Sir Arthur Currie Memorial Gymnasium.

The project consists of building a back extension to the four row houses and an adjoining fifth house, and restoring a large part of their overall existing volume as well as the four front façades. Necessary upgrades to bring the facility up to building codes, including for seismic resistance and universal access, are also planned as is the replacement of the HVAC, electrical and water distribution systems.
