I lived in 11 Walmer Rd -- which is owned by the same company -- for 15 years. Our balcony renos started in May of 2018 and we didn't get access to our balcony back until June of 2019.

Residents of 666 Spadina Avenue are having an especially difficult time being able to self-isolate as construction on the building continues.
The 334 unit building has been under construction for over a year now, as they remove the concrete balconies from every unit.
Melissa Novacefski, a Masters student who's been staying with her boyfriend in the building, wishes management would get the construction workers to stop, at least temporarily.
"Eight hours with constant drilling is unbearable," she says. "It's impossible to get any work done."
The construction company is maintaining their usual working hours – 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays – which under normal circumstance would be fine as it's when most people are at work.
But with the recent measures to help reduce the transmission of coronavirus everyone is now working from home and the result is a lot of unhappy residents, especially since there's no coffee shops or libraries to escape to.
