Quintain Living developments

“Landsby East overlooks Olympic Way and is a stylish, bright and fun new building. The apartments are well designed and managed, with the most excellent team at concierge. Every aspect of the apartments cater to everyday life, with ultra-modern appliances from Samsung, stunning furniture by John Lewis and the comfiest bed ever – we will never sleep as well as we did in Landsby, again! The management of the building far exceeded expectations, and the development was always clean, smelt amazing and looked fantastic.” Orlando, Verified resident, Landsby, Wembley Park, June 2020

The building has amazing design, and modern spaces. It is close to amenities and over a railway station with direct link to central London. The receptionists and the residential team are very polite and always helpful. We haven’t regretted a second moving here

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

Modern area, new beautiful buildings, lots of shops and restaurants

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

There is a lot of noise from the trains

What is the best feature of your home:

Modern industrial design. Large windows and balcony doors that let a lot of light in

Thanks again,

High Hopes Unfulfilled

We had high hopes moving to Landsby. Sadly, it’s much like any other rental situation in London, but without the walkable neighbourly feel of other parts of London closer in. It feels like living in a hotel most of the time. There is a massive construction site directly outside the balcony that is very loud all day during the week and on Saturdays. It’s an overall unpeaceful place to live, as it’s loud almost always save for weekday late nights. We were misled at the viewing stage about the construction, which we were told would start sometime next year, but it’s fully underway now, so beware. I realise most people who have a regular office style job won’t be bothered much by it, but if you freelance or work from home, it will be loud, the balcony will be unusable, and your flat will be stuffy.

Delivery folks will struggle to find you for reasons I cannot comprehend. The large balcony, while seemingly nice, is utterly useless since they’re constructed of perforated metal and slats without a roof on the top floor, so it’s just a torrent all over the balcony during any amount of precipitation. The inside of the flat is mostly nice. The bathtubs are weirdly narrow, so it’s hard to relax in the tub. It gets soooo hot in the flat — it’s currently about 16 outside, but it’s constantly 25 or 26 inside, and opening the windows is out of the question due to the extremely loud jackhammering that goes on below all day.

It was nice to not have to pay a huge deposit, although we did still have to pay £1000 since we don’t have UK residency over 3 years. The background check process was ridiculously unprofessionally done, and move in was hectic, with no one able to fully follow through with giving us details without me having to nag and call and email an absurd amount of times in the weeks leading up to the move. No one had our keys at the concierge at move-in either, and it took about 20 minutes for them to help us.

The staff is mostly wonderful at the concierge and the maintenance crew is helpful and honest. We have had 2 leaks from the ceiling so far (2 months in), and they are still not fully fixed (large hole cut in the kitchen ceiling still). Some of the front desk staff can be a little salty, but I get it, and it doesn’t bother me, but it does bother my partner.

If I could, I’d not have moved into Landsby. I hope it improves, but my expectations are very low. The london housing market is just the worst. I guess Tipi is one of the best worst option available. We might look at Greenford Quay in the future.

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

Like: East transport to central London

Dislike: Loud, not a very interesting neighbourhood, feels like a hotel campus, flat so too hot even in cool weather, unusable balcony

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

We did have to pay a deposit. I wish we’d known the construction was going to start while we live here. I would not have moved into Landsby had I known this. We were misled.

Couldn’t recommend more!

Landsby East overlooks Olympic Way and is a stylish, bright and fun new building. The apartments are well designed and managed, with the most excellent team at concierge. Every aspect of the apartments cater to everyday life, with ultra-modern appliances from Samsung, stunning furniture by John Lewis and the comfiest bed ever – we will never sleep as well as we did in Landsby, again! The management of the building far exceeded expectations, and the development was always clean, smelt amazing and looked fantastic. During the Covid-19 outbreak, we had to complete our university degrees in our apartment, and we felt comfortable, safe and content to be at home 24/7. Management really looked after all residents during this time, and were supportive and understanding, with constant communications to reassure residents and look after everyone’s wellbeing. Whilst the apartments are more expensive than privately owned properties in the area, you cannot find the same sense of belonging and care in another home. The base wifi was a bit pants, but after a quick email to Velocity1, they upgraded us for free which was amazing. The only gripe with Landsby is that it does not have a gym – unlike every other development by Tipi in Wembley Park.

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

Wembley Park is a wonderfully diverse community in North-West London. There are so many amenities nearby, including plenty of fantastic restaurants, a cinema, Boxpark and all of the events at the Arena or Stadium. The area is undergoing intensive redevelopment, which is not intrusive to everyday life, and is greatly improving Wembley Park. It is a fantastic area to live.

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

If we had known how dark the dark blue kitchen/black floor spec apartments were, we would have chosen the lighter colour scheme. During the winter, the apartment was very gloomy.

How friendly and exceptional concierge were. They conveyed care and dedication to all residents with beaming smiles and warmth.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The addition of a gym onsite, or reduction in the price to reflect lack of some amenities.

Consider other buildings before Alto…

The good…
– The flat is beautiful inside. It has comfortable furnishings and quality appliances.
– If you have a high floor flat facing Harrow, the view is lovely
– The concierge staff are friendly and accommodating.
– Quintian Living host fun events for residents. My favourite has been the cooking club, and I’ve recently enjoyed the art clubs hosted by in-house artist and fellow resident Laura.

The not so good…

– Our previous flat on floor 14 has a significant defect of a loud gushing water sound in the bedroom walls/ceiling. We had to live with it every day for nearly eight months. It was the reason we moved to another building before the end of our tenancy. The situation was ongoing for much longer than we had liked, and we feel the ‘residents team’ who were dealing with this purposely kept pushing it aside. I do find it very hard to believe that the previous resident never flagged this to Quintain Living. In the end, it resulted in us having to swap units as the fix for the defect is not simple. It now appears that Quintain Living never had any property intentions of actually fixing it because the flat is back up for rent without fixing it. They purposely asked us to provide us as much info as we can to resolve this for future residents… now it’s up for rent with no fix to the issue.

– You will likely have neighbours from hell in this building. From thumping the floor every hour of the day, (the people on Floor 15 disturbed not one but two flats on floor 14), and then you have the smoking and shouting from Floor 13. Having to wear earphones every hour to do your work in peace or not open the doors/window on a hot day without smelling weed is not ideal. Due to the pandemic, Quintain Living are limited on what they can do to sort these neighbours out. Both apartments in question have been spoken to by Quintain Living, but floor 15, in particular, have gotten worse soon as management were involved. Floor 15 should not be able to get away with what they’re doing… TWO flats have moved or will be moving out because of ONE flat.

Quintain Living thankfully allowed us to do an early unit swap due to these issues, and Sakina/Grace (both are great members of the team) found us a flat that met all our requirements, and we have now moved to another one of their buildings, and so far, it is a hundred times better! It is much friendlier than what we witnessed in Alto, we can’t smell smoke, and there is no waterfall feature in our bedroom anymore.

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

The good:
– The location of the flat is ideal. It is kind of hidden away from the main hustle and bustle of Wembley Park. It is a two-minute walk from decent size Sainsbury’s, coffee shops and Boxpark and just over five minutes to Wembley Park station.
– Elvin Gardens (the greenery area by Alto/Landsby) is lovely to sit in during the warmer months

The bad:
– Other residents (not myself) have seen drug dealing outside the main doors of Alto, and there has been some anti-social behaviour surrounding the building.
– People tend to linger outside of Alto, which is annoying. People LOVE to use it as a backdrop to their photos or ‘music videos’. If it was dark I would walk in through reception as it can be quite intimidating seeing a group of people likely up to no good blocking the main entrance to your home.

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

If you are considering moving here anytime soon, I would avoid Floor 14 and probably floor 12/16, so you’re not above/below the two problematic flats on floor 13/15. Also, every Alto flat that we could see from our balcony smokes and it is meant to be a non-smoking building. I believe Alto is now one of their cheapest buildings, and it is starting to attract the wrong crowd… criminals in some cases! Supposedly one of the aims of the rebrand from Tipi to Quintian Living was to attract those on higher incomes and older age groups… pretty sure at times you’d have a more peaceful life in the student accommodation opposite Alto than you do in Alto itself.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I wish we had known the flat had a huge defect, that the ‘no smoking’ policy is not taken seriously at all and that sound proofing between floors is non-existent.

What’s not to love?

The apartment is of high, logical and endurable quality. Not to mention the beautiful and spacious design of the bathroom especially. The facilities open to residents are also great and provides great opportunity for several different activities. Hassle-free rent with everything included. Lastly, I have nothing but positive things to say about the building and property management – kind, patient and efficient! They do spoil their residents rotten though with the best, most diverse and generous events and perks I have ever experienced as a tenant! Oh, and pets are held in topmost regard!

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

It is a bit far from Central London, so the commute can be a bit annoying, but on the other hand Wembley has pretty much everything you could ever need. Wembley Market and LDO especially are worth a visit.

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

How great Tipi is, so I could have moved in earlier.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

That the apartment would be bigger for the same monthly rent.
