Great development for young professionals

Management

I am not happy with property management. There was an issue with one of the communal pipes and them taking care of it was incredibly slow and not proactive at all – we were having to chase all the time to get anything done. In the end it meant that we couldn’t use our shower for THREE WEEKS and had to use the gym facilities instead. The insurance claim is moving incredibly slowly as well and the tiles in our bathroom still have’t been fixed two months after the works have concluded. We received no compensation.

I find LCI perfect for young professionals with the amenities it offers. It is great having a gym and an outdoors heated pool on site, and the Italian restaurant downstairs offers the tastiest pizza I’ve had in London!
I like the design of the common areas, especially the ping pong and the pool tables, which are a great way to pass time on the weekend.
The only negative is that the facilities, especially the gym, often get overcrowded in peak hours, since it is quite small and the resident numbers keep growing.

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

Within a walking distance, there’s a big Morrisons, where we do our weekly shopping, a Co-Op, Nisa, a small Superdrug, a few fruit and veg shops and Post Office. The area also offers a few small cafes with delicious and cheap all-day breakfast, a couple of pizzerias and, my favourite, a really tasty Turkish restaurant on the main street in Canning Town.
Right across the street from the development entrance, you can enjoy a walk on the river path with great views of the Thames and the O2.
You can easily get involved with the LCI community. We have a Facebook group which is updated daily and there’s often residents events organised, including Friday drinks once a month.

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

If the apartment is on a lower floor facing the inner yard, you will almost never get any natural sunlight in which can start to bother you after a while. On the other hand, I moved to a flat higher up with windows throughout and now my flat is boiling all throughout summer – sometimes it gets to over 30 degrees inside.
Most balconies are incredibly windy, which means you can rarely use them, especially if on a higher floor.

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

Johns & Co are the main estate agent who operates in London City Island and we have the displeasure to be their tenants.
We had multiple issues when we first moved in and our property manager were very inefficient in dealing with those. In the end, I met with their Property Management Director to share my concerns and complaints and we received our tenancy fees back as compensation, but fixing everything still took a whole month.
Later in our tenancy there was an issue with a communal pipe which had to be resolved with LCI’s building management. Both teams were incredibly slow and not proactive at all – I probably spent weeks chasing when it should have been our estate agent who was supposed to move the issue to resolution.

Perfectly connected oasis in the middle of a global city

It feels an oasis within the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect connections (12 minutes to Big Ben, less than 20 to Hyde Park), and yet the moment when you cross the bridge peace and quiet descend on you.
Downsides? It’s still relatively new, so some facilites are still coming up, a lot of them with a delay.
That includes a local supermarket, which originaly was supposed to come last year. But of course sooner or later this will be resolved.
Good gym and nice outdoor swimming pool. The water is heated, so you can go even in December.
Though I sometimes wish it would be larger and indoors…

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

I like proximity to transport link, and the fact that it’s a quiet place – no cars!
It does feel like oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle. And the architecture is original. Still feels like living in a hotel, in the most positive sense .
Local deli is charming with great coffee and Italian treats (tad expensive, though)
The trouble is that the development is rather new and we’re still waiting for our local supermarket to open. That’s the greatest deficit (COVID 19 has led to further delays)

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

I wish I knew that the quality of wooden floor is not the best – almost every smudge stays on it

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

Quite well, except for one case when my shower broke just before Easter and the initial idea of the management people was to fix it after 6 days. A bit of persuasion did solve the problem though.

Thriving new community

London City Island is a thriving new community created by Ballymore and EcoWorld and resembles a ‘mini Manhattan’, centred on a large public square and anchored by the new English National Ballet headquarters, which looks set to be a stunning building. Working as a development consultant in London City Island has always been one of my favourite developments in the capital, and my partner and I therefore bought a 2 bedroom apartment there off-plan. The communal areas are now completed and look fantastic: a retro-inspired gym, outdoor pool surrounded by planting, a grocer and Italian deli, bar and pizzeria and even more facilities still to come in later phases. A fantastic effort has been made with the landscaping, placemaking and creating a sense of community, with regular events being hosted by the developer and a series of artisans moving in. The scheme is easily accessible from the Canning Town tube station (Jubilee Line) and gives the perfect combination of big city life with its amazing connectivity, and simultaneously that of a small-town community, with the classic high-street occupants like a florist, art gallery and grocer. We can’t wait to see it complete!

A place good for city workers and family

I have been living here since Dec 2016 and I am enjoying it. Good location for me to get to canary wharf and the city.

The flat layout is good and is very spacious.

Central hot water really makes a difference in my winter bill when heating is on most of time. In particular good if you are couple or a family.

The only downside for me is that the I live in the front row building facing A13/East India Dock Road, so sometimes it can be noisy. Though they have put windows in the balcony, it has helped a lot, this also means less dust in the living room.

I heard that from phase 3 of this development, there will be more going on, such as shops, pharmacy store, etc.? Best efforts are made to well maintaining the communal areas. This place is also family friendly.

There will be 5 phases in total. It will take time but I can certainly see that this place will only get better and better. We now have an excellent and convenient concierge service. Staff here are very friendly and professional. They always do their best to help.

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

I like the transport links, flat size, concierge service and staff, water fountain and green space.
Don’t like when I see some random groups of people sitting there and smoking.

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

The front row building can be a bit noisy but I guess it’s everywhere for London. Living by a main road, the traffic noise, police siren and ambulance, can be disturbing.
