680 Sherbrooke (basement)

Start: March 2018

End: August 2018

The reconfiguration of the basement of the 680 Sherbrooke building will allow McGill’s bookstore, Le James, to bring almost all of their operations back under one roof. It will no longer need to rent space on Parc Ave. for textbook sales.

A vast staircase will go down from the main-floor space – where apparel and McGill-branded memorabilia is available – to the lower level, where books and course materials will be sold. During quieter times, the middle of the staircase will serve as a seating area. In addition, there will be improvements to the main floor space’s flooring, shelving and lighting.
