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.
