I've been living in this building for almost 3 years and have never had a problem. Superintendent is just a phone call or a text away. There has never been a repair or a problem that has not been fixed almost immediately or in a timely manner. Sure neighbours can be noisy sometimes but what building is quiet 24/7? I would recommend this building to anyone looking for a convenient location close to shopping and paths for walking or jogging. The building is always well maintained and clean. I won't be leaving 61 McEwen anytime soon!

I'm confused about the previous reviews. From my first point of contact until the move in date, the super returned all calls, emails and text messages promptly. He even rushed the renos so that I could move in a little earlier to become aquainted with the area before starting my job. His service is what pushed me to rent at this building.

The lobby is bright and clean with a secure entrance. The halls are quiet. The unit is newly renovated with new balcony and it looks great. There are new washers and dryers along with underground parking. There is a lot of greenery around for me to walk my pups, not to mention the 2 minute walk to the river and 4 minute drive to downtown Westboro.

As a young professional, I am very happy to have chosen 61 McEwen as my home.

Stop advertising that you have a full-time super. It's a lie!!!! The super works at another job and is hardly ever there. The manager hires her sons to do the work, and it is not done very well. a lot more young kids than there used to be, so the building is noisier. It used to be so quiet all the time. My neighbour has four adults living next to her. That is ridiculous. Now a lot of students and short term rentals. The quality of the tenants has gone way down. They will rent to anyone

Repairs take forever to be completed. Impossible to reach anybody at head office. The phones are never answered and the property manager's voicemail says call will be returned within 24 hours. Rents are being raised again simply because they made necessary repairs and improvements to the building.
There used to be a full-time superintendent, but now we have only a part-time cleaner. Less services-higher rent.

You get what you pay for! And rent has went up not worth it. Pretty small but all new windows balcony and some remodelling. Place smells, pretty thin walls and worst at fixing anything!!!!! Takes days, sometimes months.
