I like where we live, it has a good vibe, good transport connections and great staff

Property management has been good, we have had no issues with anything in our apartment, the property manager did attend just over 2 weeks ago to change something but this was standard across the entire building. He was pleasant as were the workmen that came and did the work.
Building management is good, we like the team that is in place and they have been really helpful to us especially as we have had to self isolate during our stay.
I feel they could be stricter on some of the other residents that are taking liberties, it’s really annoying to the people who follow the rules, the biggest liberty and bug bare that I have is with the parking and the fact we signed a tenancy agreement, when we signed the tenancy agreement it was made crystal clear that we would not be furnished with a parking space, we accepted this but others within our building are taking liberties and parking behind the building in disabled spaces and pretty much where ever they like and nothing seems to be done about it.
The facilities are good. It will be better when we get the gym. I’m glad we have the coffee machine and that we have the cinema area that we can use and the cycle racks.
The design of the property is fine, I just wish we were able to access the building from the rear using our keycard as it all depends on which way you come back from town.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

We like: The staff, they’re really helpful and friendly, couldn’t ask for a better team running the development, they engage and are always there to help with anything they can.
The location of the building is good for our needs. Short walk to work.
Dislike: Some of the other residents taking liberties and thinking that it’s okay because we haven’t said anything but we do take notice and don’t appreciate it.
Dislike: Other residents parking cars outside the building when it was made completely crystal clear to us when we signed the tenancy that we would not be able to bring a car. It has become unacceptable and frankly needs sorting out.

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

The road noise at night when the boy racers are out is really annoying!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I would change the lack of storage within the apartment, there just doesn’t feel like we have enough cupboard space.

A great location.

When I first saw this place being built I thought I wouldn’t be able to afford it, a year and a half later a global pandemic and change of job, somehow I decided now was a good time to take my first adventure alone… sort of, a good friend is here with me, but getting to the apartments, it honestly feels like living in a hotel with the exception of maids not banging on your door to clean, there is a free coffee machine in the lobby, a barber Tesco and co-op within 5 minutes walk, a train station in the same radius, cost is relatively high in comparison to a council house but for living practically in the city centre, this place is worth it.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area has easy access to pretty much the entirety of the city center either by walking or with the free buses. The only disappointing aspect of the area is the Riverside entrance to bridge street is blocked by development:

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

I wish I’d have known there was no riverside access to the front reception.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The only way to empty the rubbish is to take it in the lift to ground floor

Fantastic

Design is lovely, its sleek and modern, I enjoy the floor to ceiling window, there is a clean lounge available to all.

Building management is fantastic, kind and helpful, always ready to receive deliveries of all sorts.

Only complaint is that the entry door to the lifts should be automatic, makes it easier for me to enter it when I have plenty of shopping bags.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It is a stone throw away from the city centre and Spinningfields, away from all the hustle and bustle, its nice to relax here yet at the same time if I want the city action I have access to it easily.

Downside is that it is still a new place so lots of delivery drivers struggle to find the place, but its google map’s fault for being slow on updating

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

Ask4 internet is shaky, but it’s fast most of the time.

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

While there is an app to repair faults, it is faster to make a request in person to speed things along., beyond that, there is no issue.

Settling in nicely!

Our experience so far has been fantastic and we are already feeling so at home! Our beautiful two bedroom apartment is a perfect space for two of us and the unfurnished option means we have customised it to our taste. The bathroom and kitchen facilities are amazing and also beautiful! Feels very luxurious and modern. As well as the decor the onsite facilities are brilliant and the reception staff are so friendly and helpful. We love seeing all the different pets around the lobby and really love grabbing our free cups of tea and coffee in the morning. Overall an amazing experience so far.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

We have been amazed to explore the area around us. Spinningingfields across the bridge is perfect for a meal out and is lovely to walk around, and we are a 5 minute walk from the Arndale centre so we really have everything we need at our doorstep. There are plenty of bus stops nearby and the Free Bus even stops at some! Couldn’t be more pleased with the location.

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

The building is very sound proof between flats next to us and above/below, but within the flat the walls are quite thin and we can hear each other from any part of the apartment – but is not a huge issue!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

A little bit more storage space in the kitchen would be amazing but we are managing fine without! Also the storage cupboard is a little on the small size!
