Reviews

Caspian Wharf is a lovely place to live. The development is kept clean and safe by the staff, who are on the whole very professional and friendly. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained. There is a gym, tesco express, play park and other facilities within the development. Being situated along the Limehouse Cut is nice, as there’s wildlife and easy access to the Lea River valley. Access to public transport is excellent.” – Ed D, verified at Caspian Wharf resident

Fantastic development and lovely community – highly recommended!

Review Date Mar 2021

We absolutely love living at Taplow Riverside and we’re extremely pleased with the overall experience we’ve had so far (2 months since hand over of keys). The Berkeley Sales team did a cracking job of tempting us with a very reasonable and pleasant negotiation and we just couldn’t resist following through. The after sales team have also been very efficient and thorough with their snagging list (mostly us being picky) – compared to other developers we believe we’ve been extremely lucky with the minor issues we found and based on this experience we’d highly recommend Berkeley as a builder, given the quality of the property’s finish & execution.

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

Good:
Very friendly community, incredibly generous, easy going and caring neighbours. Picturesque setting, absolutely gorgeous for walks and bike rides, a stone’s throw away from the Thames and delicious pubs/restaurants close by.
Bad:
Bin collections absolutely ridiculous, super strict council rules.

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

The waste rules, the council are ridiculously strict and all people talk about is the bins…

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

Highly professional after sales building management team, have been very quick to resolve any issues we raised, and we’ve been picky

It is quiet but there is so much on your doorstep and the perfect location to get out and explore.

We moved here for the location and proximity to the park. Having moved in from the country (where we were bored) green space was important to us as well as an apartment we could personalise. Vista provides both of these – with views of the park you can often forget how central you are to London and the flat was modern and blank inside but gave me the ability to change and make it more personal to my taste.
People have commented that they thought the commuting would be difficult but have clearly never taken a bus. Getting the bus over the bridge and up to Sloane Square really does take minutes but as I no longer need to worry about a commute in the morning I personally like the excuse to stretch my legs. It is quiet but there is so much on your doorstep and the perfect location to get out and explore.

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

The charge for a parking space in ridiculous but there are streets nearby with free weekend parking which is useful for guests and it would be helpful if this type of information was available upon arrival.

Modern, tranquil perfect commuter development

A fairly recent development of some 500+ properties nestled a 10 minute walk away from Canada Water Station. The apartment types vary across the different buildings within the development, we have been tenants in two seperate buildings now, and both were very nice, modern and afforded us plenty of living space with wonderful views of Canary Wharf. The location is perfect for city commuters with a short walk to both Surrey Quays and Canada Water Stations. There is a small Tesco Express on site as well as numerous cafe’s, restaurants, a gym, spa and even a gentlemans barbers. There is also a 24 hour concierge, all of whom are wonderfully helpful. Marine Wharf is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main roads which you can walk to and hop on a bus into the likes of Greenwich. A little further a field, and on the way to the station is Surrey Quays shopping centre with many stores and a larger Tesco’s. Neither my partner or I, had lived in this area prior to moving here a almost two years ago. We moved for the close proximity to Central London and feel as though its presents the best value for location, anywhere that we viewed.

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

The amenities are freat, with a lovely couple of restaurants, a gym a small Tescos and the 24 hour concierge is also a great addition to the development.

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

Definitely try the restaurants, both the Pear Tree and Plough Way Cafe, are great. Greenland Pier is also a short walk away so for an alternative route into London or to the O2 arena, the Thames Clipper is a great option, Especially in Summer.

Prestigious living in prime location of Zone 1

Residing at One Tower Bridge is a dream come true. One Tower Bridge is an excellent property development in the heart of London. The apartments are very well-designed and fitted. The one-bedroom apartment that my company sponsored me during my stay in London has high-specification fixtures, fittings and decorations. There is a fully fitted kitchen and an open living room leading to the balcony. The floor to ceiling window in the living room gives ample of natural light during the day.

As a resident of One Tower Bridge, the development provides a number of benefits. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and manned by full-time personnel, the concierge desk is conveniently located at the lobby for me to quickly stop by and arrange gourmet food deliveries, request the booking of theatre tickets, dinner reservations or chauffeur driven service to get me to the airport or anything else that I might need. There is a fully equipped gymnasium and spin studio. To me, business never sleeps. One Tower Bridge houses a business lounge that residents can reserve offering fast access of broadband, photocopying, printing and other vital services. Situated in the Cambridge House within One Tower Bridge development, the business lounge is the perfect environment for a workaholic like me to stage an early morning meeting, or put together the finishing touches to a crucially important presentation.

Travelling to work is not a hassle at all. London Bridge Station is located 7 minutes’ walk from my apartment and I can reach my office at Canary Wharf in just under 10 minutes. After work, I can enjoy my dinner and drinks at The Ivy Restaurant which is located near my apartment. There is a piazza with some of Londons most exciting new restaurant.

Overall, these luxury homes provide a five-star living experience by the banks of the Thames, which is also located close to global businesses, Michelin-starred restaurant and other attractions that are the focal point of Londons social and business elite.

Worth a look, excellent choice for young professionals and young families

Well thought through designs with modern facilities – the more modern blocks have wet rooms and FTTP broadband. We hear very little noise from our neighbours as the flats are well insulated. The flats never get cold in the winter and are cheap to heat, they can get hot in the summer but this is a good time to make use of the balconies and nearby parks.

Woodberry Wetlands is a nice place to pop by for a walk to clear the cobwebs and Clissold Park is not far either.

Good supermarket options onsite – there’s a Sainsbury’s Local, Goldstar and a Co-op opening soon. At least 4 Cafes in the immediate area (Zer Cafe, Woodberry Wetlands, West Reservoir, Finsbury Park Cafe).

For meeting friends, the Naturalist is always relaxed and serves a great Sunday Roast. Easy to get to central and south London (via Thameslink). When you want to have nights out elsewhere in London there are infinite easy options for getting home – Piccadilly/Victoria line night tube, night buses, well inside inner London so no taxi troubles.

Getting out of London via car is not so convenient. I would estimate it takes 45 minutes to get from here to the M25. Parking is a challenge too unless you have a dedicated parking space. The development seems to be designed around not using a car on a daily basis (which generally works for us) – just rent a zipcar when you have an Ikea trip, an airport run or a family visit to make.

Building/Property Management – I have found them responsive and whenever i’ve needed them they’ve got things sorted for me. Recently changed building management company in some blocks (in Feb 2020) and so we’ll see how that goes.

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

Modern, comfortable and convenient area to live with plenty of outdoor space. Everything you need on your doorstop – supermarkets, cafes, bars, pubs, wildlife, sports facilities, dry cleaners, doctors, tube and overground.

Generally peaceful and with easy access to the rest of London.

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

Wireless Festival in Finsbury Park can be noisy for the 1 weekend in the summer if you are on a higher floor with the windows open.

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

The doors in the corridors are built with safety first and can make quite a noise if neighbours aren’t careful. I would change the mechanism so they don’t slam (Premier Inn has really nice safe non-slammy doors as an example)
