Only a few decades ago, Canary Wharf was just a network of long-abandoned industrial docks. Now it’s a buzzing business and residential district, its cloud-skimming buildings full of state-of-the-art new-build apartments, hotel rooms and offices. The location often referred to as Canary Wharf consists of the 97 acre Canary Wharf Estate owned and run by The Canary Wharf Group and the wider Isle of Dogs area on the peninsula. Whilst the estate is Canary Wharf, home to a working population of over 120,000 people, many of the developments on the Isle of Dogs peninsula also market themselves as Canary Wharf and have been included in this guide. Read on to discover the developments that are rated as the best places to live in Canary Wharf and to see reviews from residents who own or rent in Canary Wharf.
1. The building moves during wind and the worst part is one will hear cracking sound that prevent them from falling asleep.
2. The lift is horrible. 1/4 always in maintenance. There’s a long line to wait. No separation from lower and higher floor.
3. The entrance smells trash all the time.
4. There’s no swimming pool or cinema room. It’s not pet friendly or party friendly.
5. The management team doesn’t care about to solve any present issues. The residents meeting is pretentious.
Please review your development:
Multiple accidents have happened in the lift. Some people got stuck for an hour at midnight, some fall on the ground and got injured when the lift lost control and raced up and down 58 floors in several second, etc. But the management never responds to complain emails leaving along solving them.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The cracking sound of the building during wind can be scary and many people cannot fall asleep.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
They don’t care and discriminate against certain groups of residents.
