overall the building is well organized and furnished in a pleasant modern way, stuffed with state-of-the-art technology items like smart-tvs, nests, led lights. also, the gym, even though not enormous, has everything a user needs to work out properly. I encountered several times guys cleaning the stairs, which is good, however, the vacuum on my floor looks really filthy and it seems that no one ever cleans it after use, this is honestly really annoying and something should be done, like a booking excel file, so that peaple would be much more keen to clean it after use.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

food shops and bus stops are close to the building, this makes it easier go shopping and moving around town. noise is not an issue, since my apt has windows facing the school

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

Property manager Jade has been super helpful and available for me.

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

Wonderful place to live

Still enjoying it here after five years, there‘ve been nice improvements and expansions over that time as well. Management is always swift to respond and helpful, and I’ve never had any issues. It’s very well connected with multiple busses close by and even the tram not too far away now. Facilities like the gym and roof terrace are a welcome bonus.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

It’s next to a school it can get noisy during the day, but also nice and quiet on weekends/evenings.

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

Yes, they always respond promptly and efficiently.

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

The roof is beautiful in summer, and there are many walks you can start from right outside your door.

Edinburgh, city centre living.

The property has been refurbished to a high standard and meets all requirements for city centre living. The communal areas are clean and well maintained, and the management team are very approachable if you need anything. All in all a very pleasant place to live.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Very good location, you can easily walk up to the town centre, or if you wish buses and trams are a 5 min walk. Parking is always available close by. There are a multitude of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance

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

As above everything has been fine so far, but I have seen the management team around the property and I am confident that any problems would be dealt with in a professional and timely manner

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

I didn't know that I required bed linen and towels. Not huge problem, but it would have been nice to know

The aspects of the design of the building is great and affordable. There is a roof top terrace which looks over the city, a gym a function room which is great if you would like to bring your friends and family over for a get together or celebration. The management team have been professional throughout my whole experience so far and always there to help if needed. Friendly and great customer service would highly recommend.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Such a great location close range to shops, restaurants and local shops. There is permit parking and also street parking close by.

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

The building management team have been really helpful and fast at responding to any questions I have had about the apartment.

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

I feel that I am happy with everything so far so there is nothing which I would like to have known before moving in as the management team have told me everything I need to know before moving into my apartment.
