Anthology developments

There are many Anthology developments on HomeViews. These include Deptford Foundry, Hale Works and Hoxton Press – all of which pair stylish, modern apartments with top London locations.

HomeViews reviewers have sung the praises of the Anthology team. They regularly comment on the quality of their homes and the first-class service they receive…

I realised right away that Hoxton Press was unique and completely different to what I have seen before (I had been flat hunting for a few months before that and had seen a fair bit of what was out there). I also loved the location as it is right on the doorstep of Shoreditch park and the Regent’s canal while only being 20 mins away from the City. The sales and marketing suite people were professional and extremely helpful.” – Jenny K, verified resident at Hoxton Press

I bought off plan over 2 years ago, throughout that time Anthology have been there every step of the way with me. Everyone has been incredibly helpful, nothing is too big or too small that can’t be dealt with or answered. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, special thanks to Georgia for making everything so easy.” – Farrow, verified resident at Deptford Foundry

Developer of London well deserved

Verified Resident

I visited every site Anthology built in London, Wembley Parade is the only architecture consist of beautiful curves and sharp edges. Although it’s interiors are not topping out among others, it still has important features like a MVHR system and full Siemens appliance.

The site is smartly designed to be embraced by a creek & the greens which renders a tranquil atmosphere facing north. South-facing rooms are abundant of sunlight and the views are smartly preserved despite of the central oval tower.

The flat completed before it’s estimation day which is amazing as one more week of delay would put me in rather difficult situation because of the pandemic outbreak. Now that my health is well protected by living in this fort.

The Anthology flat managers are super friendly and efficient in quickly solving small issues with my initial moving in and is consistently monitoring the site like it’s own babies. The service quality is superb throughout.

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

Wembley Park is the only location I could find where a sleek living experience meet spacious public areas, and quite some green as well. Perhaps the best commute flat I could find among London new developments with an affordable price.

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

wish I would have been informed of the high-rise student home building higher than the main tower right across the site.

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

Space utilisation is hard problem for my floor plan – I guess they tried the best but there’re a few pieces of small corner spaces I couldn’t really use well. aka. utility cupboards.

Living at Anthology, Wembley Park

The development has a real “wow” factor as you walk to it – the design of the building and outdoor area really make it feel like a neighbourhood and really well kept

Shame regarding lack of facilities that other developments offer such as a gym and 24 concierge (to receive larger deliveries), etc but nonetheless we love living here!

During the move in process we found it awkward with no automatic doors and they’re pretty heavy doors..

The maintenance fee is pretty hefty and the lift has been broken for a few weeks and no surfaces or carpets look as though they’ve been cleaned

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

We love the Wembley Park area; very clean, tidy and buzzing with energy – no need to venture out too much as we have a cinema, shopping centre, Box Park and bars and restaurants, etc!

I have lived in many places around London and Wembley park is by far the best place to live! So much to do and see and the new builds and improvements in the area give it a real sense of luxury

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

We absolutely love it here – thank you! 🙂

What is the best feature of your home:

We particularly love the wooden flooring and en suite bathroom – gorgeous features!

very secluded and peaceful area development considering its in busy Wembley park!

Hi Astin,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! It is very much appreciated.

We’ve spoken to Rendall & Rittner about the communal areas and asked the Estate Operative to ensure they are regularly cleaned – please email myself or the property manager if this continues to be an issue. All the lifts have been fully comissioned now we are completed so the one in your building should be operational going forwards – let us know if not.

We are delighted you love your new home at Wembley Parade 🙂

Speak soon,

A superb development in a great location

Anthology have done so well to create a development that is full of quality and is a place you can feel proud to call home. It immediately has a strong community feel with such a pleasant exterior and layout. One thing I like is that it doesn’t stick out as a new development and actually blends well into it’s surroundings. The properties themselves are finished to the very best level and are great value considering the space that you can get. The development is managed effectively with a reliable concierge and timely replies if you have any issues. I genuinely cannot fault my experience so far.

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

This area is full of hidden gems. There’re countless restaurants, bars and cafes close by that all offer genuinely great quality and I was surprised to see such a high concentration. It is clear that money has been invested into Deptford with the Deptford Market Yard being the most visible result of this. On top of this, the walking distance to Greenwich and Greenwich park means you’re never left wanting. Transport is great too with multiple station choices (overground and mainline) that can get you into London Bridge within minutes. Couldn’t be happier with all aspects of the area.

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

The noise from the trainline really is minimal. This was something I was concerned about but really isn’t a problem at all.

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

Fixed very quickly in most cases. Communal problems seem to take a little longer.

Nice flats. Not good for investors

Verified Resident

The property I purchased from Anthology was sold to me by a member of the sales team that categorically lied in the sales meetings. I was informed that I would recieve a stamp duty rebate as a first time buyer as an incentive to purchase early in the development launch. This was not put into my contract and therefore not done. More fool me for not fact checking the sales pitch.

I was also assured this was the perfect hands off investment of which it is not. Anthology have an agreement with the billing company that only the owner can have a payment account or a direct debit for bills. Therefore, on a monthly basis, as a landlord you are expected to send bills to the tenant and chase payment (they can only pay online or over the phone) which can be difficult if your tenant travels a great deal for work.

Regardless of what the sales team say THIS IS NOT A HANDS OFF INVESTMENT and FACT CHECK THE SALES PITCH!!

As for the development itself, it is a decent development apart from the continuous issues with access control. The properties are well built but ensure you carry out your snagging to a high standard!!

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

Up and coming area with nice bars and shops

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

That it would be on me as a hands off investor to pay or organise bill payments on a monthly basis. Note this is the only site in the area that has this rule!

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

The do not answer emails.

They withhold keys from owners after a tenant has moved out saying its illegal to give an owner a key without the old tenant being there (even though the new tenant is stood outside)

They are rude on the phone.

Hi Dean,

I am sorry that you felt compelled to write this review.

As discussed, we have changed the agreement with Switch 2 so that tenants can now register their own accounts. I hope this solution means that you can have a more ‘hand offs’ approach to your rental and you are happy with your investment at Deptford Foundry.

Please feel free to call me if you would like any other matters.

Best regards,
Georgia
