City-centre living with lovely building management

Building management is great, Adam has always gone out of his way to be helpful and he’s a lovely guy. Basically anyone from the management is nice and sociable with the residents, will hear you out and try to help you with whatever. I live in a double bathroom apartment which is very nice. T

he design of the flats is nice, but in hot or cold temperatures the temperature is exacerbated by the building, at least on the ground floor. It’s freezing in winter and boiling in summer, which I don’t think is helped by the giant windows. It is a listed building I think so it’s not like they can change the huge stone walls or the huge windows so it’s unavoidable but it’s worth noting. Another point is that most of the residents here are lovely and friendly and helpful, we move or keep packages for each other or lend things to help each other out.

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

Very close to the centre, supermarkets and shops, really easy to walk to lots of close by places. Car park is secure, bin collections have improved over time and there’s no issues really. Living at the front of the building I think you can sometimes hear loud people shouting but it doesn’t happen lots and it’s kind of a given living so close to the centre.

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

It’s a really lovely building, you never know who you’ll move in with but most people friendly and helpful to each other. The fact it gets so freezing in winter I would have liked to know because it costs a bomb to heat the big rooms with electric radiators, but that’s due to bills being crazy expensive at the moment. I’m not sure if this is as bad if you’re on the upper levels, but it’s quite an issue for me on the ground floor.

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

They answer messages or the phones really quickly and they are always receptive to resident comments if there’s any small issues in the building or between residents

Great place. Always room for improvement.

The building is brand new and the ammenities and common areas are nicely done and cozy. The facilities like the gym are great, with brand new and modern equipment. There are still some areas lacking finishing, and even though the fact that there are hot tubs is great, it’s not very practical for them to be outside on the terrace, where they cannot be used half the time due to weather conditions. The apartments are OK, I live in a small studio which I think might be a bit overpriced, but it gets compensated because utilities are included except for electricity, the fact that they accept pets and do not charge extra for them and also it is furnished. I believe some opportunities were missed design-wise, so as to make it more space and storage efficient (few examples: the base for the bed could have drawers, the wardrobe could be integrated into the wall, and the bathroom door should open towards the outside instead of the inside). The building and property management staff have been great, always super friendly and helpful.

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

The area is amazing in terms of convenience for shopping, transport and sightseeing. We are just a five-minute walk away from most main attractions in the city, shopping centres, restaurants and bus/rail stations. Being a busy part of town, it can get a bit rowdy at night, and the surrounding area might get a bit dirty from people littering. At the moment there is construction so it gets quite noisy. Hopefully it won’t last long.

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

I wish I had known there was going to be a construction site right next door, with tons of noise.

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

There have been some issues regarding the building alarms that need improvement in the time frame of handling these issues, and also it took quite a while for us to get access to our mailbox, since the key wasn’t working. I feel the processes need revising and response times need improvement.

Spot 124 Deansgate

Building is ex post office, floor height is excellent and spacious to live in. With a helpful community to pick up your parcels when you are not at home. The residence building is equipped with a lift and it’s so convenient to get to each floor. Also it is a pet friendly residence.

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

Management is very good with excellent location in city centre. Very nice surrounding except the music from the pub is sometimes too loud.

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

Car park space is limited, no visitor parking for visiting friends.

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

Fast and very good service, the building is newly refurbished with furnitures.

I love it here!

Properly management is amazing, they’re always in hand to get the job done and respond to me.

The only complaint I have is that the building wasn’t designed in the direction of the sun. So the apartments at the back barely get any direct sunlight which as a plant person is frustrating but literally nothing I can do.

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

Good range of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Close to the station – literally everything I need is local. I never have to get the bus or anything. No local noise just police sirens from the top of the main road every so often.

Only bad thing is that shops close early so if you’re a professional who doesn’t wfm I imagine it would be difficult to do life admin tasks such as groceries etc.

As a Londoner who moved to Bolton alone it’s definitely an adjustment in terms of closing times and how quiet it is.

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

Information on who is the providers for electrics etc before I moved in so I can do my own research

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

Yes had some leaking tap issues when I first moved and they came out next day to fix it. I’ll email in about something and they’ll send the building handyman to drop by and see if everything is okay
