mcgill would be crazy not to convert the royal victoria hospital to student residences and teaching space, give the space crisis we've been battling for the better part of a decade. no matter how much renovation is needed, it'll surely be less expensive than whatever other options are on the table. and i know that the university is still looking to build a large convocation hall and conference center - hard to think of a more elegant and appropriate location than the royal victoria with such commanding views of the city and university, and affluence of space.

It already has the architecture to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the McGill campus. I agree that they should make every effort possible to use it. They shouldn't waste time/money and build a campus in Griffintown when they have an opportunity like this.

I was born at the Royal Victoria Hospital. I would rather it be kept somewhat open to the public.

McGill desperately wants to acquire the RVH complex, hopefully as a no cost transfer from the Quebec government. Then all McGill would have to do is raise $325 million mimimum to renovate the complex.

That cladding is looking damn good! Not all kitschy and colourful like I'd feared at all. It's got that great textured quality to it.

I drive by the Super Hospital roughly everyday to get to work. The construction is coming along very well and great to see another big structure in Montreal
Any news when it'll be ready?

It is mind boggling how small this new hospital looks based on renderings and photos. Seriously, how can the Royal Vic, Children's, Chest Institute and others possibly fit in that suburban office park? I visited the Royal Vic recently and seriously, that complex is huge!

Don't forget that the rendering also includes the Shriners Hospital to the far right.

I know that we're going to lose beds with this new superhospital, that there will be fewer beds here than there were at the old hospitals.

Looks Scandinavian. This will really shake up the formerly sleepy area around Vendome Metro.

I was born at St. Mary's Hospital in CDN. I don't think that one will be closing anytime soon.
