I really like the area, i have lived in canning town for 4 years and the area has continued to improve over the years. The transport links to the city are also excellent. There is a local bakery, climbing wall and even wakeboarding.

Please review your development:
Overall it is a nice development and apartment, the concierge team are wonderful , but poor quality fittings and even omissions from the property have let it down. My biggest frustration is the lack of balcony light even though it was on the spec. I raised it on our first viewing and after over a year of chasing them I was informed they didn’t include it due to H&S issues – which cannot be true as they are elsewhere in the same block and adjacent buildings in the same development – they offered a £50 voucher as compensation but this would not even cover the missing light fitting never mind the non communicated change to spec and 1 year of me chasing.
This is the 3rd new build property I have owned, the others have been better quality. The planting in the development is lovely now it is finished, there are lots of trees which give it a woodland feel.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
How loud the jubilee line currently is. Newham council are being incredibly supportive and pushing for action from TFL, there is no issue with the DLR at all, but the Jubilee is too loud.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
As explained above, badly. My biggest frustration is the balcony light, which they let me chase for a year saying it was being looked into, even sourcing parts, until they eventually changed their mind and said it wasn’t installed due to H&S concerns – which is utter rubbish as they have been installed lower in the building!
