Great place to live and will only get better

Review Date Sep 2021

Very convenient for city centre. Needs more grocery shops. Transport links are very good. Parking can be tricky.

Please review your development:

The home design is excellent with low bills and ease of heating. as are the facilities and the convenience and ease of access to the city centre. Kelham Island is an exciting place to live. The property management is good and they do respond to issues.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Very Happy to live here, Kelham Island is a vibrant place to be.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The building management will respond but they do need reminding some times

Great location and buildings, not great management.

Review Date Sep 2021

Great food and bars, great location.

Citu not the best.

Please review your development:

Love my flat but it wasn’t finished before I moved in. Would have been great for it to have been finished prior to me moving into the property. Things like skirting boards were not implemented and finished which was disappointing. Nice location though.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That it was not completely finished.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Took a long time to fix problems that should have been fixed before hanging over the property.

Stylish and well designed development.

Excellent variety of bars and restaurants. Good accessibility to the city centre and motorway for transport. Relatively little traffic noise. Difficult to get parking.

Please review your development:

Stylish and well designed development. It gives a good blend of old, historic Kelham with modern living. Each of the homes is equipped with all of the facilities you would expect in a modern house. Value for money is reasonable, with homes being slightly smaller than you may expect elsewhere but the payoff being the excellent location. Unfortunately the developer behind the development are fairy non-communicative and there are some unresolved snagging issues almost 3 years after moving in which haven’t yet been addressed

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Poor on street parking, would highly recommend purchasing a property with a parking space

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Varied response. Some issues were resolved quickly and some are still ongoing 3 years later

Unique eco design centered around sustainability

Review Date Sep 2021

Great location – within walking distance to a range of bars and pubs, a large supermarket as well as smaller convenience stores. There is also a good open green space within 10 minutes walk. Lovely community and vibrant atmosphere. The area is also within walking distance to the city centre, but without the noise you’d expect from an urban area. Downsides would be that the parking spaces are limited and very costly, with the only other option being on-street parking outside the development which can be hard to find. We have also seen and experienced for ourselves bikes being stollen from the bike racks situated at the bottom of residential blocks.

Please review your development:

Very vibrant development, particularly as there are a selection of great restaurants built around the houses/flats. Unique eco design centered around sustainability – both the flats and houses are light and airy inside. That said, the quality of design is lacking and we experienced several design issues after moving, particularly regarding the shower. We also found it extremely difficult to get a response from the property management team, meaning many of our issues were left unresolved for months.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Make sure all the snagging is done before you move in – we waited until after we’d moved (in November 2020) and are still waiting for the issues to be resolved!!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

It’s been extremely difficult to get hold of the building management team, leading to an incredibly frustrating experience. Issues raised months ago regarding design faults or issues are still waiting to be resolved.
