I've lived at 218 MacLaren for a year and a half and it's been a fantastic experience! The building has been beautifully re-decorated recently. I've been living in one of the one-bedroom suites and it's a really good size. The bedroom has enough space for my Queen-size bed, an armchair, a bookshelf and tons of room to spare! Using creative placement of shelving, I've been able to actually separate the living room area into three separate spaces - an office, a dining area and a living room - and it still feels very spacious. The unit also has a balcony, which is amazing in the summertime.
The kitchen in my unit is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and there's even a dishwasher - a dishwasher!!!
The laundry room in the building is kind of small with only 3 washers and 3 dryers, but even still it's very rare that there are no machines available. The fitness room is really only an exercise bike and a partial weight machine, so it would be nice if some free weights or a treadmill were added. But since the building is so central, there is no shortage of gyms and yoga studios nearby. It's also a very short walk to the canal, which is great for jogging in the summer and skating in the winter.
CLV have been good landlords - they responded to any questions or work requests that I've submitted very quickly. I would absolutely recommend living in this building to anyone who is considering it!
