Linkcity Reviews

“Linkcity in conjunction with the London Borough of Newham present Hallsville Quarter, a new development in East London’s Canning Town. It forms part of the GBP3.7billion regeneration project that’s taking place in that area of the capital, which will result in an exciting and thriving new quarter. Hallsville Quarter will not only create a mixed-used community with shops and leisure activities, it will also provide 1,100 new residential properties and affordable housing. There’s also a shared landscape garden for residents to enjoy, which is especially handy for families looking for outdoor space close to their homes. The price per square foot for this development is around GBP644, just slightly over the average for the E16 postcode of GBP554.” – HomeViews Property Pro on Hallsville Quarter

Poor Management Ruins a Modern Flat

The building is spacious and relatively new. It has good transport links and is comfortable for a young professional.

However, management is very poor. It took 4 months of following up to get a real response over renewing my tenancy – the delay meant I was forced to move out. Additionally, it has been a further month and I have still not received my deposit.

Dealing with poor management and constantly having to follow up for months is not worth the effort: STAY AWAY!

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

Excellent transport links and a developing area. However there is no real culture in Cannning town – it’s half gentrified so has the worst of both worlds – not busy enough to attract major shops/bars but not authentic enough to retain a culture.

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

They try and overcharge you when you move out – check your report and push back!

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

Poorly. It took 4 months of following up to get a real response over renewing my tenancy – the delay meant I was forced to move out. Additionally, it has been a further month and I have still not received my deposit.

Pleasant place to live

The development has been pleasantly designed: the spaces are well curated and you have a sense of security walking home. The path is well lit and there are step free access to most places. We used to have fly tipping problems but the building manager sorted it by adding extra bins. The only downside is that the building site in front of the development is really loud: windows are well insulated but when open, the noise is really disrupting. They work every day from 8 to 6, including Saturday mornings.

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

The development is really conveniently located next to Canning Town station, which is perfect for commuting to Central London. There’s a gym and a grocery store on site, as well as a few coffee shops and restaurants. However most of the shops are currently empty which limits your options. You are still very close to Barking Road, which has a post office and several other shops as well as Royal Wharf and the Emirates cable car (15 min by walk).

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

Definitely I wished we were told about the building site times and loudness.

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

Yes, they have always been easy to reach via email and always provided us with necessary information.

Argo is where you want to be living.

Argo has great managers who are there for your needs.
You have any kind of problems with your flat, they will answer to these problems in blind.

They also have the best concierge service, secure and reliable, your deliveries are always in good hands.

The flat itself is very well designed, storage is a big plus, and they have thought of everything to make your life in Argo the best possible.

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

Canning town is growing, restaurants, shops and bars are popping up everywhere around Argo.
The station is 2 steps away, woth easy access to any area in London.

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

I have been told everything, there was no suprises.

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

The pricing was good when we first moved in 3 years ago, but the yearly increase you will feel, and does not always come justified.

Great space to live near to the station and nice design

Amazing lobby, unique design.
The concierge is amazing, big space for work, study or see some TV and movies. Also, there’s an area to play games and a few games available.
The gym is not that big but has everything you need. Also, you have a space to have an amazing gym class.
The departments’ overall design is gorgeous and clean, feels like a hotel room, and the amazing thing is that they help you with everything you need, and that’s a great experience.

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

Very good location, in front of the Canning town station where you have connections with the city or other parts.
The area is in construction but worth it because good things are coming.
You have Morrisons (big) and Coop near to the building, also there’s a few restaurants in the area like Mcdonalds, KFC, subway and other restaurants.

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

I don’t have anything on mind

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

Always there for whatever you need, any problem or things to repair they will be there right away.
