Greenwich Peninsula Reviews

“Fantastic quality build. Very modern feel to the apartment with nice touches, such as Siemens appliances, underfloor heating, Villeroy & Boch sanitary installations etc. Efficient concierge service (never had a package rejected and always get a text reminding me to collect shipments from the office). Typical residents’ gym that is kept clean and generally well-looked after. Another ‘cool’ feature of the development is laundry lockers, where you can leave your clothes to be collected and delivered back by a dry cleaner.”  Verified Resident, The Norton

Where do I start?

Upperriverside and the surrounding area really break the mould when it comes to the standard they provide!

We recently moved from Canary Wharf with the hope Greenwich would bring activities and community, and it certainly delivered.

Concierge for all 4 buildings in upper riverside are so helpful and friendly. We’ve been here since July and they’ve helped us every step of the way. Our flat is ultra modern, and as we are the 18th floor, the views of London are breathtaking.

The aftercare team have also helped us with any little requests we have made about the flat & management always take the communities feedback on board.

Our apartment is ultra-modern and perfect for a couple working in central London, as the commute is only 20 minutes to Westminster and 25 to Marleybone – ideal for a stress-free morning commute.

I’ve never been part of such a community where everyone is so happy and ours neighbours are all friends- it’s great!

We also know people that live in the Lighterman and Besserman who regularly enjoy workouts with us and take walks with them to enjoy the many parks in the surrounding area.

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

There is so much to do! Our favourite bar has to be Ardoa, their wine and food is incredible. We also love a long walk down the river where there is an ecology park, perfect environment for relaxing on the weekend.

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

I would have liked to have had more knowledge on the services available (The tide). I’m now a member and go frequently, as I joined through a friend.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature has to be the views from our balcony and rooftop terrace.

When you live in Greenwich next to the river and the Greenwich Ecology Park it doesn’t feel like full on city living and instead I have the best of both worlds.

I rented in Greenwich Millennium Village and loved the area so decided to pool resources with my girlfriend and purchase a one-bed flat in 2015. We had been to launch events before and underestimated demand so we missed out – this time we got there early and queued for hours to reserve out flat! The flat has been great as my neighbours in are all very friendly and we often chat in the lifts.

When you live in Greenwich next to the river and the Greenwich Ecology Park it doesn’t feel like full on city living and instead I have the best of both worlds. My commute is easy which was important to me as I can walk and avoid the joys of rush hour! Buses are on my doorstep and the convenience to the Jubilee line, and the ability to get anywhere in London quickly.

I don’t know what it is like post brexit but the peninsula is popular

Building 1 over view

Building 1 is a nice building. It is however disappointing not to have concierge in the reception. The building is accessible by the public and non residents being by the entrance to the tide and Ardoa and cafes can access the post room and risk safety. I’ve never understood why there is no furniture on the roof terrace of floor 18 when all other buildings have furniture so there is no chairs or tables to relax and enjoy that area, is this something that is being looked into? Some rooftops have too much furniture and so could lend this to building 1. The reception area in building 1 also has very limited seating or relaxing space compared to other buildings where they have nice sofas, chairs and tables. Can this be revisited.? I’d also say the design and layout of the flats are smaller than other buildings.

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

The location of the development is excellent. Transport links are great and being by the river is lovely. There could be more bars and restaurants for that community feel. Affordable Parking could be better and a limit on social housing is necessary because it is having an impact on the look and feel of the area.

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

That the wall to my flat is adjacent to social housing. Had I known I may not have purchased the property due to ongoing noise issues. Access to amenities are not permitted to shared ownership residents even if you staircase to own 100% which is poor even when the owners are willing to pay for them. This really needs to be reviewed.

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

I would most definitely change the layout. The internal design is awkward and clunky giving no appreciation of space or storage. Some interior finishes feel rushed. Access to the balcony from the living area would’ve been better than from the bedroom.

Great development in a rapidly developing area – maybe too rapidly!

The development itself, design-wise is great, though with one issue. Whenever it gets very windy – a common occurrence for this area as it is riverside – the bedroom window emits an irritating noise whenever it is closed. I contacted property management for this, and although they helped locate the source of the problem, I understood it was to do with the design of the building and the weather conditions of the area. Having a more durable architectural solution to deal with this issue would help.

The facilities I have gotten to use so far, mainly the gym and the pool are all great. The weights room at Building 2 does get busier than expected at times and could be slightly more spacious, but the gym equipment is terrific and the floor is fine. The rooftop terrace is beautiful. I like being able to use the tables on the ground floor of each building to work at times, too. I have yet to try the cinema room but like what I have seen of it and look forward to trying it out when we can actually have friends over again!

Otherwise, the design of the building and the homes are state-of-the-art and kept that way. They’re really taken care of well, and with love – it really shows!

Building and property management are great. They always respond promptly to issues and are very willing to help.

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

The existing restaurants, bars, cafes and open spaces are great. I just wish there was a wider range outside of the O2 shopping mall as well. The supermarkets, however, are inadequate for the area – their products aren’t of great quality and their stock and range are small, as they are small supermarkets. Having a large supermarket with an expansive range of products without having to travel to Charlton or other parts of Greenwich would be very helpful.

As to transport links, no complaints there. Living here is great for that.

Traffic noise hasn’t been terrible but does sometimes exist. Some weekends I can hear car and pedestrian noises around 1-2 am which isn’t great. I do live on the second floor of my building though so I guess that’s inevitable.

Construction noise is a bit of a problem, both regarding noise and visual pollution. Sometimes it gets to the point where I have my headphones on for much of the day as a result.

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

The shortage of supermarkets within the area. I’ve shopped for groceries more from Charlton or other parts of Greenwich than here!

How crowded the Jubilee line can really be – as good as it is for getting from one end of the city to another…

What is the best feature of your home:

I adore the interior design of my flat, from the open plan kitchen to the living room. It’s both spacious and pleasing to the eyes.

good area with good building but poor L&Q management and hard restrictions.

the building looks like very morden and fasion which has air purifier inside which all of my family like it. Three lifts are good and effeciency. But the service charge is not cheap as some area and hard restriction for no access to the lodge, reading area and even cinema inside building. The fod restricted lift and fire exit access is really not acceptable. The building management is poor which we requested more than one year for a lender needed cladding report with no solution at all. The parcel management is not good enough at all, sometimes it’s informed by email, sometimes it’s informed by leaflet, sometimes there’s not information. Really weired. The staffs which includes cleaner, concierage staffs are really good enough.

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

there’s very nice place with shops and restaurants, easy access to north greeniwich tube station . tThe building has good Thames river view and Canary wharf sightseeing, even Greenwich observation.

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

before moved in, it’s better to have a cladding report otherwise you can’t get remortage from any lender.

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

very uneffeciency, contact with them would spend at 5 working days to wait for respond email. And if you want to fix a window handle it costs three more month with no fix~~~are you shocking? no it’s not the worst situation. there’s no solution with cladding report for more than a year even worse than Brexit,LOL
