Excellent place to live with your pets

1. It is very hard to find a flat that really friendly to your pets. I have a dog and I take him down to the courtyard everyday. There’s a piece of gravelled terrace for dog to go to the toilet. And there are benches, lawn, bark chips flower bed (which is dog’s favourite), smoking areas, a nice courtyard and a friendly community with many four paws friends. If you live in the ground floor, there’s convenient door access to the courtyard, feels like your own home.

2. The facilities are well-equipped and brand new. There’s a gym, not very big but it’s enough for regular exercise( actually I haven’t use the gym since I got the dog ). Meanwhile, there’s a big public area for all kinds of activities such as holding a party or something, and I see some people studying at the quiet area. Anyway I personally seldom use the public area, but I quite enjoy the coffee machine. It is worth mentioning that the Forge gave every tenant a free coffee cup , before that, I always ask for disposable paper cups, which is not environmentally friendly.

3. Stuffs are friendly and easy to talk with, 24-hours reception, I could often get help when I need a hand.

4. The interior is modern and the furnitures are all brand-new, which is good, but I personally think the furnitures are too many for a room, some could be removed. But they do furnished room or unfurnished, no partial-furnished, which is a shame. Now we are considering to move into a bigger unfurnished room, gonna spend some extra money on our own furnitures.

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

LIKE:
1 .Close to the riverside which is a good place to walk the dog.
2. Near the police station – trust me you will feel more safe.
3. Close to the train station which is convenient.
4. great river view from the south block.
5. there’s a parking building just the side of the road.

DISLIKE:
1. the nearest convenience store is in the train station, well, about ten minutes walk. And you need 20 mins to walk to the commercial centre. Many good restaurants and supermarkets there, well, not very far away, but it’s tiring when you buy bags of stuffs. and its too close to driving, just an awkward distance.

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

The windows of 6th floor in North block and the 7th floor in west block actually only half height of other rooms. I didn’t aware of that. Personally viewing the flat is recommended.

We have lived at The Forge for a little over 7 months and can’t speak highly enough about living here. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The entire team have handled COVID well, as we felt extremely safe given the number of residents living here. Extremely grateful to how seriously they’ve taken COVID protocols and following government guidelines. They organized lockdown challenges to help residents feel connected and energized during lockdown – which I think is above and beyond what one would expect for any apartment block of its size.

We had the chance to use the common areas (lounge and gym) prior to lockdown and both are spot on. Gym is definitely well equipped for an apartment block gym.

Minor points (but it would not prevent me from recommending The Forge):
– As this building is electric only, the electricity bill can be high in the colder months if not careful.
– Most appliances and furnishings are nice, suitable and functional for the spaces. The washer/dryer all-in-one unit is convenient to have, but the cycles are not efficient (too long) and the dryer seems like a hazard, so we seldom use it.
– Parking options are somewhat limited and can be expensive depending on proximity to the building, but this was known. For safety purposes, we chose to park nearby at the structure across the street, which is expensive (£120/mo) – independent of The Forge. A lower rate would always be great!

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

Conveniently located close to the Quayside and train station. It’s also very accessible to main motorways. The nearest grocery stores are at the train station, but there are multiple options for grocery and food delivery because of the location.

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

Electricity costs, especially in the winter, as mentioned above would have been beneficial to be aware of prior to moving.

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

Any time we’ve raised a maintenance concern, the management team has been quick to respond.

Almost everything is perfect, but I love The Trilogy

Overall I love Trilogy. I’m very happy here and have been ever since I moved here. The socials every Friday are an amazing thing which has helped me make friends which is something I was worried about when I moved here. The staff are so kind I consider them friends as well. The building itself is always clean, it’s modern and well furnished and I feel safe here with the security measures and 24/hr concierge. I LOVE the free coffee. Thank you for that. The fact the building is dog friendly is amazing because now my girlfriend and I have a place we can call home, stay for the long term and also get a dog to start a little family.
The only reason I didn’t give everything 5 stars is because of the lack of parking. That’s my only issue. I don’t understand why noun parking for the amount of apartments. If it’s a land issue or something then so be it, but it is the one annoyance I have as everyday I have to fight for a parking spot outside and sometimes I’m not lucky enough to find one nearby. I am on the waiting list for a parking spot so hopefully I’ll be able to get a spot soon.
Other than that I love the trilogy and intend to live here for many years to come.

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

The tram station is a minute away which is a huge deal for me. Super easy to get around town because of that. We’re also in range of a lot of restaurants so deliveroo and Uber eats are awesome for us. So many choices. Overall we’re in a really great location.

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

The only thing is the lack of parking. I wish I knew about how long I’d have to wait to get parking and how there is barely enough parking spaces for the residents.

Fantastic first impressions, but the lived-in experience is disappointing

The Trilogy is an excellent place to live at first glance: it is modern, innovative and well-equipped with a gym, delivery lockers, 24/7 concierge and well-furnished communal areas. These certainly draw you in on first impressions. But after 9 months of living here, I’m a bit underwhelmed: light and socket fittings are cheap and sloppily installed, with spotlights misaligned or not flush to the ceiling. The internet is provided by a terrible ISP – I experience regular dropouts whether connected to WiFi or ethernet – with no option to switch. Some of the furniture in my fully-furnished apartment is more trendy office than comfortable home, especially the cheap, uncomfortable, small sofa. But worst of all is the building’s thermal performance. Even my north-facing apartment becomes stiflingly hot in the summer months, to the point where fans and the MVHR system cannot provide adequate cooling. The corridors have south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows which turn these areas into veritable greenhouses, and the heat has nowhere to go but into the adjoining apartments. There’s no good reason why a modern development should have such issues with heat, even without full air conditioning. I’ll have to bear another summer here due to the pandemic, but I won’t be sticking around for a third. The building management, which is a real stand-out positive here, are aware of this issue and provided fans to numerous apartments, but I think they should explore more creative solutions.

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

I like the proximity to Cornbrook tram stop, and the city centre is a walkable distance, but the area consists of lots of low-grade industrial areas although these are undergoing redevelopment

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

View an apartment in summer, some may be cooler than others.

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

I had a leaky washing machine which was resolved within 24 hours.
