Robert Couvrette, Associate Vice-Principal (Facilities Management & Ancillary Services), announced on 19/3/2018 that a major renovation project planned in the McIntyre garage is forcing the University to close the garage for two years. There will be no access to the garage by pedestrians or vehicles for the duration of the renovation project.

UPDATE (14/6/2018): Due to requirements related to the tender for the project, the start date has been pushed back to sometime between mid-August and mid-September 2018. The exact date is still unknown, however it will be relayed to users of the garage as soon as it is available. While the McIntyre garage remains open, it can continue to be used by permit holders and daily visitors.

An email has been sent to all McIntyre garage permit holders with relocation information. If you have not been contacted, please email the parking.services [at] mcgill.ca (Parking & Transportation Services) office.

Entrance to the Drummond Lot via Hosmer House (3630 Promenade Sir William Osler) closed until further notice (Mountain Street entrance remains open)

Due to a serious masonry problem at the Hosmer House, the access to the Drummond lot via the Hosmer House driveway (3630 Promenade Sir William Osler) has been closed indefinitely until the masonry is repaired. The two spaces in front of Hosmer House have also been condemned for parking indefinitely until the masonry is repaired. A safety perimeter has been set up around the Hosmer House.

Vehicles requiring access to the Drummond Lot must enter and exit the lot from Mountain Street (rue de la Montagne), via the lane just behind 3605 Mountain. The Mountain Street entrance will remain open.

Support beam installation in McIntyre garage until further notice

Support beams have been installed beside some of the concrete columns located on levels 2 through 7 in the garage which the structural engineering firm that has inspected the garage has identified as needing repair. These additional support beams are required as a precaution.

Parking spaces blocked in the FDA Lot for structural inspection until further notice

Several parking spaces in the FDA lot have been blocked with construction fencing and scaffolding until further notice. This is necessary for structural work.

Due to the reduction of parking spaces in the lot, permit holders should use their overflow zone if there no parking is available upon arrival.

Parking restrictions at the Purvis Hall lot due to masonry project until further notice

The masonry contractor at Purvis Hall has cordoned off an area around the building with fences for the safety of pedestrians in the area while they are doing masonry work. Three out of the six parking spaces in this lot are inaccessible during the project. A projected completion date has not been given.

Permit holders using this lot may park in other “B2” zones until the project is completed. The largest of these lots is Drummond. Please click on designations and overflow in the left sidebar for a map of these locations.
