The apartments are very near the centre of Greenwich, so with just a short walk one can reach many cafes and restaurants. There are also lots of open spaces with the Cutty Sark being very near, the Royal Navy College and of course Greenwich park (all within 5-12 min walk). Transport links are good with two DLR stations nearby and a bus stop right outside the block. The main street is fairly busy with traffic but not too noisy. Parking is not easy and unfortunately the area behind the building can be extremely dirty with lots of litter everywhere. If you only walk towards Greenwich though you can avoid this completely. Also, shops are a bit touristy but Lewisham is easy to get to for more “everyday” type shopping. One thing I really miss is a good farmers market.

Please review your development:
The building, the apartments and the facilities are beautifully designed with a modern feel and lovely furniture. There are several useful amenities like car hire on location (via an app), very reasonably priced extra storage, gorgeous communal areas and more. Some amenities (like the guest apartment which can be rented for visitors, or parking spaces) are very sought after so require booking well in advance. When little things go wrong in the apartment (such as leaks or minor technical issues) the handymen are brilliant, fixing everything quickly and efficiently! Only thing that couldn’t be fixed was the weak shower pressure in one of the bathrooms. The residents team is helpful and approachable, and there is someone around 24/7 (either residents staff or security) which is great. The building is very safe. As a pet owner I wish other pet-owning residents were more thoughtful/respectful in terms of lead rules etc, but this is not really the fault of management.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
There are very many pets in the building, which is great (I have two) but this requires a bit of effort and management if you have a nervous/anxious dog. In all other aspects this is a fantastic place to live. The for-hire roof-top dining rooms/kitchens/bbqs are a fabulous idea and offer a brilliant way to entertain guests without the headache of having lots of people in your home!
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
We haven’t had any major problems but anything small that has occurred (leaks, minor issue with heating etc) have been dealt with quickly and efficiently by the in-house team.
