The surrounding area is great lots of access to restaurants, shops and Central London all within walking distance. Good transport links
Downsides are can be loud traffic if there are holdups on the roads and some shouting late at night.
No parking or even easy space for loading and unloading. Bins have sometimes been a problem
Please review your development:
Security issues (parcels and bikes) which L&Q don’t deal with
Noise issues in the building due to design.
During COVID the building and external area care was worse, even before that did not meet their own monthly check standard. Without action to resolve this, broken maglocks, poor communal cleaning. Standard has drastically dropped from when we first moved in.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The sound proofing in the building is poorly designed so you can hear more of your neighbours then they would probably like!
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
You need to push to get any resolution. Usual response is “thanks for making us aware” and no further response or action. I think they overstretch staff, and regular checks seem to accept not meeting the standard for years.
