Do not recommend living here as smoke comes in your unit from vents and District does not do anything to address it.

Do not recommend this building since smoke comes into apartments from vents and is in common areas such as stairwells and hallways. Washers and dryers do not work well and are pricey. No control over heat during the winter so overly hot and stuffy.

Would not recommend to anyone. Laundry is gross. Found dog crap in the machines twice, and once blood everywhere and in the elevator. Lots of smoke and marijuana smell in the corridors and coming through the vents. Management is deceiving and amateur, tries to save money everywhere even when affects tenants negatively. They keep lying and pretending to be nice guys, but don't fulfill their commitments. Simple fixes take months or never get done, despite repeated requests. Live there and be treated like garbage after you move in. After the previous superintendent was fired, things got even worse. Stay away from this place and anything managed by District Realty.

Response from District Realty:
Hello, my name is Kendrah, and I work for District Realty, the company that manages 335 MacLaren. I can attest to the cleanliness of the property and responsiveness of not only the Superintendents but also the property management team. We all work hard every day to ensure that our properties are not only safe and well managed but also an enjoyable home for our tenants.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the cupboards in the kitchen have 20 layers of careless paint. they really need to do something about that. when I moved in, the cupboards and drawers were painted shut. I had to hammer a screwdriver between them to get them to open.

The building on-site manager recently moved on, so now we just have an on-site maintenance/repair guy that we can call; he's been great so far. my fridge broke. I called them, and within a few hours, a new fridge was in my apartment.

no central air, so you gotta get your own air conditioner for the hot summer. in the winter, the building is heated so much that I have to open my windows. I choose to continue living there because of the neighbourhood. I really like being so close to everything.

I'm not so sure that it's pest/bedbug free though.
