Once upon a time, Hackney was topping lists of Britain’s worst places to live. But the borough has had a colossal transformation in recent years. and now, E8 is one of the capital’s most fashionable postcodes. Read on to discover developments that are the best places to live in Hackney. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Hackney.
Neighborhood is fantastic. Proximity to open spaces is great, buses frequent, tube not too far away. However bin room insufficient for amount of flats, courtyard not secure enough and people have gotten in and stolen bikes
Please review your development:
Overall great design and materials generally really good. However some details are not thought through (ex wood flooring very soft and marks super easily, some bathroom sinks are tiny, kitchen tap design is impractical and splashes everywhere, fob on main door on wrong side, no provision for cargo bikes locks etc). Last but not least there are some serious defects in major works: lift breaks down at least once every two months, and main hot water for building breaks every winter when temperature changes. Also fob not working when panel gets overheated in hot weather. Property management is absolutely horrendous
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Lift breaks down way too often. Hackney who manages the property are absolutely incapable of doing a half decent job
What is the best feature of your home:
Big floor to ceiling windows, balcony and proximity to park
