I have found a place I can call home.

Review Date Oct 2020

I must say this is hands-down the best apartment building ever. I had lived in many nice apartments in London over the years but none quite like this. The building is brand-new and looks stylish and spotless. There is a fantastic Clubhouse available exclusively for residents should you feel like hanging out with friends, playing pool table or simply chilling. Residents have also access to a compact yet functional gym. I have found a place I can call home!

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

The area in which this outstanding development is located is without a doubt the one reason why you should move here tomorrow. The Whitmore Collection is perfectly positioned in the heart of the city of Birmingham, the Jewellery Quarter. This area is vibrant, young and stunning. I’m in love with the marvellous water canals, with the countless choices of restaurants and bars as well as the modern and immaculate architecture. Everything is within walking distance, including the enchanted Brindleyplace, which is exactly what I wanted.

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

At risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m going to once again praise the neighbourhood. Safe, full of amenities, lively and clean. In short, extraordinarily charming.

What is the best feature of your home:

I genuinely didn’t expect the development to be located in such a strategically extraordinary area. There is an infinite amount of amenities within walking distance. My absolute favourite has to be the enviable canals.

Manager Response

Bless you Andrea,
As I read, I found myself thinking, “Best apartment building ever? Ever, Ever?…Ever, Ever? Wow, I wanna live here!”
-Reality check- I work here.
And just as you call us Home, we consider you Family.
Thank you.

Living by the River

I love living at Spring Wharf .. I’m lucky to overlook the river.. It’s very calming what with the wildlife and the canal boats …
A few things that make it special is the FOH team any problem however small they are there for you day or night ,they are so friendly and helpful ..
I live on my own so it’s nice to know if there’s a query or a problem they are there for you ..I feel safe
..Because it’s a new build there’s bound to be a few hick ups when you first move in But Maintenance are to hand straight away .. it’s very reassuring .. The flats are well equipped with high end whites goods and WiFi is in with your rent .. Theres a well equipped gym which is free to the residents .Pets are allowed which is lovely as so many privately rented properties don’t allow them..
Theres a bbq area and communal decking area.. Everyone so far respects each other’s space ..
It’s so close to the city centre 5 mins on the bus ..there’s a stop right outside and it runs every 10 mins.. Cycle paths walks, pubs and supermarkets are all close by..

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

Bus stop right outside ..it runs every 10 mins in the week .. 5 mins to the city centre ..There’s also a bus that goes up to the hospital ..Supermarkets are all within 5 minutes too..
River side walks ,park opposite and cycle paths into town or to Bristol along the river ..Pub opposite .. It may be on a main road but you wouldn’t think so the flats are well sound proofed ..

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

Underneath parking is expensive .. There is limited parking around .. I need my car due to health reasons .. So if you can go without a car all the better

Amazing facilities and a lovely team

I really enjoy being a resident at Spring Wharf. My one-bedroom flat has a modern, yet simple, design with big windows in the lounge and bedroom, meaning that we get lots of lovely natural light. The flat is an ideal size for me and my partner. The under-bed storage is a clever feature and after buying a couple of extra storage units, there is now plenty of space for all our stuff! I originally found the kitchen worktop space a bit limiting, but that was easily solved by adding another unit in here too. The extra facilities at Spring Wharf are amazing! I love having a shared garden space to sit out in and the resident’s lounge with its free hot drinks is a really lovely touch. The gym is brilliant and although it is quite small it is very functional and I use it regularly. Last but not least, the team at Spring Wharf are wonderful! They ensured we has a smooth move-in and are always very friendly and helpful!

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

The location is great! There is a Tesco Express, Lidl and M&S less than 10 minutes walk away and Sainsbury’s is only 5 minutes in the car! Oldfield Park station is really close by (about 7 mins walk) and if you need to go to Bath Spa station it’s about a 30 min walk or 10 mins in a taxi! I regularly walk into town, but there are also lots of restaurants and shops nearby. For example, there are some lovely cafes and shops on Moorland Road or Chelsea Road, which are both only 10 minute walks away! You are also not far from the river pathway and can either walk towards town, or if you go in the other direction you come to a lovely pub called the Locksbrook Inn.

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

It is advertised that you can make the apartment your own by decorating, but it is worth noting that you have to pay an approved handyman to come and do any of the work for you.

Lovely Development and Flats in a great area in London!

The development is very modern looking and has great facilities for relaxing, hanging out with friends and exercising and wellbeing. It is kept very well clean around the grounds and outside. The location does sometimes mean that wind tunnels can occur and high winds can sometimes happen.

The gym is well sized and has a variety of gear within, as well as classes and an outdoor pool.

The building management team are very kind, helpful, quick to action and timely in their response. I haven’t yet had a problem that they couldn’t help out with.

Blackhorse Mills also has bookable private dining rooms in case you have a party and want a bigger space to host it. These are brilliant for having guests around or even a change of scenery when working from home.

Flats can be quite expensive with 2-bed flats going around £2.2K a month.

My biggest gripe with Blackhorse Mills is that the bin chutes are working less than 50% of the time and sometimes mean that I have to leave the building and go outside to take the bins out, which can be often due to the small built in bins in the flats. This seems to be due to the other residents throwing large pieces of cardboard and glass bottles down the chute which can break them.

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

The immediate area has a coffee shop, The Willow Tree that slightly expensive but is a great place to grab a small bite or just hang out with a coffee. Another bar/restaurant is being built on the complex site and soon looks like it will be open. Food trucks from a service called Fooddisco arrive 3-5 times a week for a great dinner/evening meal

The area around Blackhorse Mills include a barbers, a local co-op, few smaller restaurants, another coffee shop and a classic pub by the Wetlands. All of these have great service and quality, highly recommend using them all. Definitely can recommend the local barber, Dre Fades.

Transport links are great as the development sits right next to the Blackhorse Road tube station on one end of the Victoria line and the Overground. There are also plenty of bus stops nearby.

Parking is limited unless you have paid for a space at Blackhorse Mills. There have been some reports of anti-social behaviour and bike theft reports but the all of the buildings themselves are CCTV’d and have key fob locks on them.

There is also construction works going on across the road to build another block of flats. They seemed to have been quieter lately but the noise they can make is excruciating and they have been known to work outside of normal hours, as early as 7am and as late as 1am (not on the same day though)

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

The construction noise seemed to be minimal when we went to view the home. But over time, it kept getting worse until we decided to move to another building in the development.

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

They have been able to offer temporary fixes to the chute but it doesn’t take very long for them to break again.

Ultra-modern city centre home

West Tower is an ultra-modern development with a lot of convenient facilities and services. The staff are very friendly and helpful, making you feel very welcome. The apartments are all very cleverly designed and equipped with high spec fittings and technology. The provided furniture is of high quality and seems very durable. My particular one-bedroom apartment, which is the smallest available size, offered surprisingly more space and storage opportunities than I initially expected, and for the price, is definitely a winner! I am very excited for the amenities that are due to open in early 2020, which will surely improve my experience at West Tower even further!

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

West Tower is very conveniently situated right next to all available transport links, making it easy to move around Manchester City centre. The development is situated between my favourite areas/ neighbourhoods in the city – First Street and the Castlefield Canals. Within 10-20 minutes you can reach anywhere in town by foot.
The only downside is, although you may get a prime view over the iconic Deansgate, the street never sleeps. If you keep the windows closed, you can enjoy peace and quiet, however with the windows open, you will often hear traffic, trains/trams and ongoing construction work.

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

If possible/affordable, I would suggest to move higher up in the building to avoid noise from the streets.
