Poor Construction, Decent Value

The design is nothing special, quite a generic aesthetic. The management is terrible, as with many new developments. There are at least 2 companies on the developer side, with separate contractors for every aspect of the building. It is incredibly difficult to get any repairs done by the freeholder/developer. I have experienced many issues, as have other tenants, such as water ingress, broken windows and poor ventilation.

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

The Hallmark is a relatively new build (2 years), with a very modern interior and decent value for money. However, the appliances and overall construction has clearly been done on a low budget, resulting in many faults -some of which are serious safety issues.

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

Ongoing issues which were omitted, or that they were not transparent about.

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

Very poorly, completely incompetent. Reside Manchester are the agent in charge of the unit, and they are absolutely useless at getting any issues resolved.

Luxury apartment building that is maintained well and has excellent connections

Luxury apartment building that is maintained well and has excellent connections to the City Centre, Victoria Train Station and the MEN Arena. A dedicated 3 person concierge team ensure high quality maintenance and The Hallmark is a building that is treated with care and has mainly private tenants (No AirBNB) which treat the place with respect and maintains the high quality.

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

Excellent location in the city centre but ideally suited just a few minutes away to enjoy some peace and quiet but also the vibrancy Manchester has to offer.

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

More visibility over the changes in concierge timetables and also the high service charge/insurance increases.

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

LivingCity are generally responsive and helpful but certainly have a huge room for improvement, lots of things are rushed, poorly done and communication is non-existent apart from cheap flimsy posters placed in the lifts. Shame as they have a digital portal that goes mostly unused.

Pet friendly and welcoming

Great location with gardens and roof terrace. Lovely staff and concierge 5 days a week for parcels and visitors. Well maintained and clean. They also have 24 green quarter staff in the complex so feels safe. So close to the tram and trains at Victoria station.

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

5 mins to city centre and Victoria station
10 mins to northern quarter so very quiet but in the edge of town.

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

They have parking that’s safe and secure which is rare round here as many new buildings have no parking.

What is the best feature of your home:

Well insulated haven’t put the heating on yet!!
The balcony looks over the gardens and gets lots of sun.

Amazing place

The building is new, clean and really makes you feel that you live in a hotel style. The reception area is great and there is 2 open places (in the ground floor and in the 10 floor). There is also a bike storage and 2 level parking floor. The building is cleaned every other day or so.

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

The area is very quiet and cozy, there are multiple shops around and the city center is about 13-15 minutes away. There are multiple bus stations and the Victoria train station is 5 minutes away.

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

Mainly two things, that the concierge is not 24/7 and that there is no gym in the building.

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

I didn’t had any issues, but they are keeping in touch with me to make sure that everything is working properly
