Muse Developments reviews

“Rathbone East is a really modern development in Canning Town. The area is undergoing a lot of regeneration, with hundreds of new flats being built, so in the next few years it’s likely to have a brilliant community feel.” – Anonymous, verified resident at Rathbone East

No problems

Overall impressed. Find him store too small for the amount of residents. Is shared with the fizzy building next door. Often gets really full with people dumping bags on the floor and not enough recycling outlets.
Really not a fan of the induction Bosch Hobbs. They make too many beeping sounds. Wish they had unde floor heating like my last place. It’s easier to shuffle furniture around.
The sink in the kitchen isn’t the best design. As the worktop around the sink is in a way which is hard to clean and it can get a bit gross.
Shower heads could be stronger. But bearable.
There was security all the time when I moved in with a desk in reception. Now I see a man sometimes at night but not sure if he’s working across a couple of buildings.
Location is great and I don’t hear much from the train line.
Overall very happy though. Signed a 2 year lease and thinking of staying longer.

A lot better than the last development I lived in just 5 minutes away, which you could tell was a lot more cheaply made. The flooring bubbled up and the corridor was so uneven when walking down it.
There was only one small lift for around 11 stories so it took forever and had to use the stairs a lot. The layout was meant we were quite overlooked and it was very dark. I did like having a window in the bathroom though.

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

Commenting links are great with trains to London Bridge, Charing Cross and Victoria. Is just another annoying if you need to get from south east to south west such as Clapham for example.
Wish there was more restaurants but there is becoming more. Street feast is here in summer and Greenwich and Canary Wharf isn’t far away.
A Tesco and a smaller sized Asda not far away.
With the development this area is seeing my only concern is how this will impact me. The current building work of a block nearby doesn’t affect me. But there is planning in place to build a block opposite me near Tesco and I love my view at the moment and worried this would affect it and the sunlight if I was to stay longer term.

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

The Italian deli in town is amazing.
Wish I’d known my neighbours had such bad music taste, especially on a Saturday morning.

An excellent place to start truly living in London

The site is generally good. The surrounding area is undergoing rapid redevelopment which is a good thing. The building itself has an excellent exterior. Some things have evidently been made quite cheaply (there are occasional breakages) but overall it’s a great place to live. I have been unable to find a place to rent of this quality or higher for a better or even similar price. The area looks much nicer with this building present. There is an excellent view of the O2 from the balcony. 1Gb broadband has just been installed too for a very competitive price, which I am in the process of switching to. There is no service charge, that is all bundled into rent which makes things much simpler. The site manager is a lovely chap, exceptionally friendly and always very polite and helpful. Events for residents tend to be held biannually and are always good fun. You will struggle to find a better place this close to central London.

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

The area has excellent transport links. Canning Town to Canary Wharf takes less than 10 minutes. To get to Westminster takes 16 minutes from canning town station.

Local amenities and shops are often independant which gives the area character. There has been some gentrification of late, with a Nandos intending to open in the near future. Stratford can be reached easily from here which has plenty of shopping opportunities, but options in Canning Town itself are more limited. Canary Wharf shopping centre is also excellent for quieter weekend shopping in a great location.

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

I wish I’d known about the Rathbone market stalls (on Rathbone market Friday and Saturday) before moving in. It took me a while before learning about them, and they’re excellent for a variety of good quality, value meat, fruit and vegetables.

location, location, location

Generally the fixtures and fittings, including bathroom and kitchen appliances etc. are of a good standard (Bosch appliances and washing machine). Living in a 1 bedroom apartment, it is generally spacious compared with other similar blocks.

We were promised a concierge when we bought the property, but this frustratingly has not materialised (and arguably is false advertising!). As a result, packages being lost/stolen is fairly common given the shared entrance/lobby with Fizzy Lewisham and also with the area being visible by the public walking past.

Service charge is overly high given the lack of amenities – no concierge, no car parking, no gym. The communal rooftop area is rarely used.

There is literally no car/van drop-off point for deliveries or for moving in/out which is highly inconvenient and needs to be addressed.

Building has historically had a poor management company (currently Savills) which do not offer a good quality service.

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

The location of the building is by far the best feature of this residential block. The transport links with direct trains to London Bridge, Charing Cross, Victoria and Cannon Street makes it easy to commute into central London and the DLR station is very convenient to access South/East London.

The development is also very close to a wide range of supermarkets (large Tescos, large Sainsburys, large Asda and small M&S) all within a 5-10 minute walking distance. Lewisham town centre, 5 min walk away has everything you need in terms of post office, bank, dry cleaners etc.

The development is right next to (literally on top of!) the DLR / National Rail station so the noise levels are high, but the sound proofing is generally good and you will get used to the noise such that it doesn’t really bother you. There can be a lot of siren noise as the Police station is 5 mins away and also Lewisham hospital is a close by. We haven’t had too much issues with noise and its a fair trade off compared with the convenience of leaving right next to a station.

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

Lack of concierge (as was promised), lack of car/vehicle drop-off point for the development

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

Building management has generally been poor and lack value for money.

Great experience, will continue to live here

The building is great – everything is very modern. But we have been renting for 2 years and have noticed cracks forming along the walls, and signs of mould coming out on the walls. Customer service has been really good and responsive, there is a building team that we liaise with, and with any issues they always sort it out and keep us updated. The maintenance team are also very good in fixing things, doesn’t take them long at all. The only complaint I have is that the lift seems to break quite frequently, but again, is fixed very fast.

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

Area is absolutely amazing. It has everything you need, all of the fast food stores like KFC and mcd on one street, coop and Iceland, post office, GO 5 mins walk, an ecological park, able to walk to Canary Wharf in 30mins and has amazing transport links. Also has a bus stop right outside my flat

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

The walls are quite thin… so you can hear a lot
