Greater London is the name of the ceremonial county that covers the London region, excluding the City of London. With a population of over 8.9 million (2018), this 607 square mile area is split into 33 districts that stretch from Hillingdon in the west to Havering in the east, south as far as Croydon and Bromley, and up to Enfield in the north. London real estate is some of the most coveted in the world, thanks to consistent demand, top universities, clement weather, a dependable legal system and the city’s plentiful green spaces – among many other factors.
Great for transport into the City, just a few mins walk to the tube/DLR station. However, the ongoing construction in the area means a lot of dust and inconvenience with pathways being inaccessible. I have also never lived in such a badly littered area as Canning Town. There is literally rubbish everywhere, bins are often overflowing and it’s a real eyesore.
Please review your development:
If on the Thames side of the building, the views are very impressive. I would say the building management and general facilities are nothing more than average. At the top end of rental prices in the area, I was expecting a little more. I was told on viewing the flat that there would be a concierge 9-5, Mon-Fri – this hasn’t been the case. My queries/complaints have often gone unanswered and I have had to chase for a reply.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
All in all, the level of service I have received has been average at best. I would have expected more from one of the most expensive rental buildings in the area.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
I have had to chase for replies to my emails on multiple occasions.
