A nice development, not the best you’ll find in London but a good reasonably good valve development with a management team that is responsive and helpful.
Atrium point is a good transformation of a building that was once used for corporate offices, the remnants can be seen in the grounds.
External grounds could use a revamp but the building itself is well looked after, with a welcoming reception, limited concierge service, bike storage facilities (not sure if covered by cctv) and a courtyard (the atrium) which is nice but projects every conversation.
Good flat, although in some flats the designers thought it was better to have a second door leading to balcony/ patio rather than a window which is not ideal for the summer, particularly if you live on lower levels as it’s not safe to keep the door open all night. The glazing on the windows could be better, depending on location in the block you can hear traffic and other outside noise.Apart from these no issues with the design, lots of light coming into flat, nice functional kitchen with decent appliances and a good bathroom.
Friendly and competent Handyman on site so basic repairs are often completed same day if lucky or within 48 hours at latest
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
A relatively quiet area, very close to the Grand Union Canal and parks. There’s a few good pugs close by but not much else in the way of entertainment so you’ll have to travel a short distance for that.
The area has good links into central London, served by the Piccadilly line which is 2 mins walk from Atrium Point and the Central line which is a short bus ride or 15-20 mins walk. Although sometimes particularly late night it can be a long wait to get trains to and from Sudbury Hill station.
No obvious issues with crime or anti social behaviour in the area. Occasionally street drinkers but no big issues that I’ve noticed.
Iceland and other smaller stores are a few mins walk away along with an award winning chippy, Turkish, Persian Indian, pizza and other fast food outlets. A decent selection but could be better.
The West Cross regal park is a short walk or bus ride away and has a range of shopping outlets including; Lidl, M&S, TK Max, Next, Sports Direct, McDonalds and Nandos. Greenford Quay a new development close by has a Starbucks and many new food outlets and a co-op are set to open soon.
Parking in surrounding streets is without restrictions in the evening.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Probably quieter on higher floors, plus I bet the views are decent.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Yes very good when issues are raised and they approach with an attitude wanting to resolve.
