Can only speak for the higher floors but the flats are finished to a high standard, and are in a good state of upkeep. Large floor to ceiling windows, good mixture of laminate floors and carpet (bedrooms). The flat came furnished but the management team were very happy to move out certain items that I didn’t need.

Plenty of facilities available including 24hr gym, a games room and 24hr concierge. The concierge staff are always really helpful and friendly. They offer a parcel collection service but the building is safe enough that most couriers just leave parcels outside your flat door. First place I’ve lived in London where a parcel could be outside your flat door all day and still be there when you get home!
There are recycling facilities available, although this covers only card/paper, plastic and metal – no glass recycling. The common areas are regularly cleaned and the reception is currently being refurbished and updated – always think its a good sign when management companies put money and effort into maintaining a development over the years.
And the views across London are just incredible – depending on your flat, you can look out over Greenwich, the Olympic Park or Central London. Overall, a fantastic place to live.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Very convenient Tesco located at the front of the complex. Westfield Stratford is within walking distance, so good access to all the shops and restaurants you could want. Underground and DLR stations also within walking distance, great bus links and easy access to the Blackwall Tunnel. You also have your choice of great open spaces, with the Olympic Park on the doorstep and other local parks within 20-30 mins walk. There is underground parking for residents, although this is an extra monthly charge.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Although the building is on a busy High Street, I thought that it would be quieter living up on the higher floors. But due to the fact that the road is long and straight and lined with buildings, the sounds are directed upwards. So loud noises like motorbikes and ambulances are amplified. I don’t mind these noises – this is London living after all – but I can see it might trouble some people.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Maintenance requests are quickly and effectively dealt with, and logged through a convenient online portal. Any issues I’ve raised have been quickly dealt with.
