The price of the University of Oregon’s newest sports science center, bankrolled by Phil Knight, is revealed in a building permit application.

The Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Complex will cost at least $19.2 million.

UO athletics officials announced plans in September for a 29,000-square-foot “enhancement” of the Casanova Center building on Leo Harris Parkway, next to Autzen Stadium. The work would refurbish an equipment room on the east side of the Casanova Center’s first floor into a center with state-of-the-art equipment to improve ­athletes’ health and performance.

The permit application filed with Eugene’s Planning and Development Department on Tuesday covers “tenant improvement primarily to part of the first floor” of the ­building at 2727 Leo ­Harris Parkway — the Casanova ­Center’s address.
