Oxley Holdings developments

Royal Wharf is a huge new community on the Thames waterfront. A joint venture from Oxley Holdings and Ballymore, it’s home to 3,385 homes, as well as a purpose-built market square, high street and park.

My overall impression on Royal Wharf is positive; a sizeable modern suburb in close proximity to two DLR stations (less than 3min walk) with professional Concierge services, a post room, local Sainsbury and Starbucks on site. The environment is clean, safe and quiet – even though parts of the development are still under construction the noise levels are minimal.” – Ewa, verified resident at Royal Wharf

Oxley Holdings reviews

We moved in 6 months ago as one of the first tenants and are really enjoying Royal Wharf. The commute to the city is really easy and takes 20 minutes on the DLR, our flat is lovely and the design and layout of the development is fantastic. There were a few early small issues but they were quickly sorted and to be expected in a newly completed building.” – Sarah, verified resident at Royal Wharf

The flight noise is very noticeable, doesn’t matter where you are, in flat, in townhouse, on the street, near the river, you can hear the plane noise very often.

If there is something I would like to change in Royal Wharf, Flight Noise Level is no. 1, no. 2 is wind tunnel in most of the places (windy most of the time).

The flight noise is very noticeable, doesn’t matter where you are, in flat, in townhouse, on the street, near the river, you can hear the plane noise very often. It’s extra annoying during the day, every 5~10mins you have a big flight flying above you. If your house/flat is quiet, even when the windows are closed, you can still hear them, but not too bad. In an empty flat/house, if you have all windows open, the flight noise is loud and strong enough that you can even feel the vibration. Once you have furniture in, it may be slightly better as things will absorb the vibration.

Don’t believe what others say that planes don’t take off towards the city, that’s just not true, it hasn’t been true for a long time. With the upcoming expansion of City Airport, I could only imagine things getting worst. Apparently, the expansion will also allow bigger planes to land and take off, so even louder noise.

If you have friends and family coming to visit you, try to schedule it on Sat afternoon, there are no flights on that day after 12 i think, all the other days, expect flight noise until 9~10pm.

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

Flight Noise is there, but when windows are mostly closed and you are inside, with full furniture to absorb some of the noise, it’s liveable, and not too bad. When you are outside or with windows open, there is no escape of the flight noise.

Caveat emptor: Let the buyer beware

Post room is incredibly convenient, open until 8pm 7 days of the week. The facilities are good, like the gym and pool etc, but really are much too small for a development of this size. It was almost impossible to get a spot in one of the exercise classes before COVID when there was no limitation on numbers. After COVID (when the gym was open), just being able to book a time to use the pool was a nightmare.

The biggest issue and what makes me always advise AGAINST other people buying here, is the soaring service charges year on year, and the smoke and mirrors that BAML enshroud in it. The service charges are always higher than what they advertise when you buy, and continue to rise and rise. We are paying the rent for the concierge and post room(!), and somehow we are even now paying for the maintenance and upkeep of the TFL Thames Clipper/Uber boat dock… Since when do private homeowners pay for the maintenance of public transport facilities? These are the kind of things BAML have roped us into. To this day we are waiting for them to publish the accounts from 2018 so that we can scrutinise the charges. There is a lot of avoidance behaviour which is quite suspicious.

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

Lovely area for a community feel, with a slowly expanding range of shops and services. Quite a delay in restaurants opening up which I don’t understand though. Transport links are good, but unfortunately the DLR is completely jam packed in the mornings (at least in pre-covid times when people physically went to work) and that won’t change until crossrail opens up.

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

Definitely as above regarding the service charges.

What is the best feature of your home:

The fact that it feels like it’s own community/little village

Enjoying Royal Wharf living

We moved in 6 months ago as one of the first tenants and are really enjoying Royal Wharf. The commute to the city is really easy and takes 20 minutes on the DLR, our flat is lovely and the design and layout of the development is fantastic. There were a few early small issues but they were quickly sorted and to be expected in a newly completed building. Our only disappointment has been in the lack of community facilities. With many parts of the development still being built these have not been completed yet and we feel the lack of community – a bar or other facilities would be of benefit to current residents though as buildings are completed I am sure this will improve over time.

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

The brochures said there would be a number of facilities available to residents but many of these have still not been completed. I wish I had known the timeline for these additional services in advance as the Sainsburys wasn’t completed until December, 4 months after we moved in. Many things haven’t been finished yet so ask for a timeline.

Lovely development – great location and build

I fell in love with this development since I’ve seen it the first time. There’s a local Starbucks, Sainsbury’s and a concierge at the moment – with a leisure centre (which is free for residents) and a bar opening before the end of the year. Overall, this development is coming along very nicely, lots of lovely people – there’s many new buildings finishing up soon so lots of opportunities for viewings. Only issue is that the postcode doesn’t show up everywhere if you’re doing loads of online shopping but I’m sure this will come along soon enough and there’s always a way around that anyways!

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

The only downside is that there’s still quite a lot of construction going on within the development – but the people and spirit within the community make up for it!

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

The water and gas is provided communally and you’re not able to switch gas providers due to this.
