Fabrica reviews

“The City Wharf development by Fabrica, designed by Stephen Marshall Architects sits in a district that is becoming increasingly popular with buyers and investors who are looking to claim a slice of this vibrant N1 postcode. City Wharf is located between City Road Basin and Wenlock Road Basin, alongside Regents Canal. There are 327 waterside apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedroom homes with panoramic canal and city views from private balconies, roof terraces and landscaped courtyard gardens. For such a centrally located building, there’s plenty of outside space available which will appeal to families in particular. The architecture of the development was thoughtfully designed to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding cityscape. There’s a real sense of urban cool to City Wharf, which will attract the creative and tech crowd who work in the area. The average price per square foot in N1 is GBP734, and these apartments run a little over that at around GBP1,131.” HomeViews Property Pro, City Wharf

Very modern and eco friendly build with eco credentials everywhere you look.

We love the design of the spaces, the homes, the greenery and buildings within the estate. Very modern and eco friendly build with eco credentials everywhere you look.

The management however has a lot of work to do to improve their image and services. It sometimes takes weeks before you get a reply from the estate manager. The property management tends to send letters that aren’t relevant to all property owners which causes a lot of confusion.

The service charges are ridiculously high and goes up every year. A recent increase is at over 30%. This is not sustainable. We would be paying more service charge than mortgage soon!

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

What shops/restaurants/bars? There are none on the estate when we were promised they would be built by 2019.

Parking seems to be an issue in phase 1 where there are too many apartments with too few allocated parking spaces. Parking in phase 2 and further is much better with 2 allocated spaces per house.

It’s really nice to have allotments and raised beds nicely designed and close to the houses but the fencing was recently stolen despite security bolts holding them down. Some cars have also been broken into in the previous years and walls vandalised so security could be improved.

There is a bus that goes through the estate with a very friendly driver. It might be better if people could pay with a card or something convenient instead of the only and very antiquated way of cash/coins to driver to purchase a physical ticket. That might encourage more people to take the bus.

Most drivers slow down in the estate but some drive recklessly past the school and where kids are playing. We need more road safety signage. There should be a priority for cyclists all along the roads in the estate and clear signs to let drivers know that this is an eco estate. We prefer bikes and walking to cars and speeding.

The 1st play park was beautifully designed but not with children in mind so it ended up being huge and great to look at but nearly useless for kids who are surely the most important park customers. The later parks had more sense and incorporated familiar elements such as slides and swings which are now the kids’ favourites’

One commendable element is the design of green spaces, wide walkways and wheelchair friendly accessible areas throughout the estate. Much more so than any other new build estates we have seen and we’ve seen a lot in many parts of the country. The challenge however is to stop drivers from parking their cars illegally on drop curbs, roadsides and pedestrian pathways, blocking the intended wheelchair access!

Despite being mis-sold on the savings we’ll make living on an eco estate, which is next to nothing (higher heating bills, ever increasing service charges), the best part of this estate is the incredible community. Everyone you meet here is very friendly, genuine and more than you can ask for in a neighbour.

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

The ever rising service charge and the fact that there isn’t really any savings on heating bills.

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

They managed to resolve all snagging issues, some several times over until it was fully satisfactory so no complaints there.

Stunning Place to Live

Amazing new lifestyle. Was a bit hesitant to move as i was previously living and enjoying a beautiful park within Kensington (w8). Now I’m so pleasantly surprised by how stunning, calming and yet lively the river life is. Although being very convenient to transport, you don’t feel like you’re in the city bustle. The magic of the Hammersmith Bridge, river wildlife, existing new cafes and upcoming restaurants/ cinema/Riverside Studios makes this a unique living experience…one that i’m so happy to be part of. The Queen’s Wharf building itself has a magnificent rooftop terrace open to all tenants. Each apartment is unique with excellent finishings. There’s an excellent Concierge service 24/7 which is very convenient for residents. With all the new developments on this side of the river, this neighborhoud is becoming a very desirable place to live.

Unique Riverside Development

Having viewed many properties around Fulham and Canary Wharf, I’ve finally found Queen’s Wharf. This development has a sense of understated luxury, modern but not dull, and is overall very well designed. Common area is of very high standards too. It is nice that north-east facing flats enjoy morning sun in summer with a view of a small garden despite having no direct river view. The development has no onsite gym & swimming pool etc (hence lower service charge) but there are many choices around. There is comfort cooling & heating throughout the building.

The only issues I’m aware of include the door to the rooftop and doors of lifts and it seems to take very long for them to be solved. The onsite management team made sure the development is always clean and concierge is really outstanding 24/7.

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

There are cafes, Michelin restaurants, gym, rowing club, and of course Riverside Studio at the door step. The south-west facing riverside walk leading to the reopened Hammersmith Bridge really carries the magic during the day and night. Hammersmith Station provides access to 4 tube lines and bus routes and is only 5 minutes away.

Hammersmith roundabout can be pretty busy, and larger supermarkets are 10 min walk on Fulham Palace Road although there is a Tesco Express nearby that opens until 10pm.

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

rowing boats frequent this part of river and certainly bring action to the river life.

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

no particular issues had raised during conveyance.

Nice design apartments!

The design of the flats is very nice and very well thought. I like the different styles of the flats and my favourite is dark style. It took very long time to complete the pool and gym facilities but the design of the pool is very nice and stylish. The gym , however, I feel should be much bigger for a huge development like that. The concierge team are nice and helpful. The downstairs of my house entrance (2 Exchange Gardens) looks a bit worn out now so I guess will need a re paint soon. I have also noticed that other entrances have LED screens which are missing in 2 Exchange Gardens.

Otherwise, it still a good development which I would recommend to others.

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

Vauxhall is very close to Central London, however the area is still developing and feels unsafe. It is very dirty, often with rubbish being spread everywhere, it is not safe at night, and local authority should be monitoring this area more closely. Additionally, there are no cafes, nice shops or places around here apart from Sainsbury’s and Starbucks. The area definitely needs an upgrade to match the house prices here.

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

I wish I knew how dangerous and dirty Vauxhall can be. There is also a lot of construction going on which can get very noisy and dusty when opening the window.

What is the best feature of your home:

The dark style kitchen and bathroom are very stylish.
