“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

Manager Response

Hi George

Thank you so much for leaving a review.

We’re delighted to hear that you’re so pleased with Ferrum’s design, social spaces and the onsite team – we’ll be sure to share your feedback with them!

Thanks again,

Pat

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.

An amazing place to live, especially if your looking for working space, gym, shops, food and an amazing safe environment!

In terms of our development and the flat in which we live, it’s again absolutely amazing. Whenever we bring our friends and family, they are equally impressed.

What sells it for my wife and me is that our little two-year-old loves the proxemics of the flat too! We have space for her to run around the building has a large working from home space. There is also a beautiful large roof terrace that overlooks the whole of London city, a playground within the building facility exclusive only to tenants, which our little daughter loves. Especially as it feels incredibly safe letting her run around.

The gym never gets too busy, and everything is always clean. Something important during the pandemic!

In terms of building and property management, there is no more considerable praise we can give; they are a dream to have, especially as repairs are actioned so promptly. The concierge makes a living here wonderful; Jana, Niomi, and the rest of the staff always welcome us with smiles day or night and are beyond polite. To conclude, this place wouldn’t be as good without this team!!

In addition, a lot of our friends also live in similar newbuild apartments, but nobody has a better concierge team than our Ferrum team! Something all our friends notice when they visit us.

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

We used to live in another part of Wembley 5yrs ago, but since moving into our new Ferrum apartment; things have really changed for the better. In terms of transport, we are in the middle of a number of train lines. We have the Bakerloo line, Metropolitan, and Jubilee line which are all ( 5-10mins) walking distance. What’s even better is we have a railway 1mins away which can get you to London Marlybone in 10mins or Oxford in 40mins!

Downstairs we get 10% off a new organic shop which serves amazing coffee and has only recently opened in addition we are 5mins walking distance from Sainsbury’s, Tesco, local newsagent, post office, chemist and the list goes on.

You get the occasional traffic noise, but that’s normal for a new build area, and with security constantly patrolling the area you can be sure you are always safe.

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

I would highly recommend visiting breadahead if your an English breakfast coffee lover!

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

The responses generally prompt and any issues are usually managed immediately. Usually if the problem continues it is little resolved quickly.

Reflection after 2 months living on the 7th Floor of the South Side of Ferrum.

Like many others I was Instantly attracted by how cool the flats at Ferrum look. I’ll stick with the positives to begin with! Ferrum has great facilities. The Gym is superb; the Concierge staff are all very friendly; the internet/utility arrangement/post room/trash system/lifts/cycle storage/car park etc are all great and it’s wonderful that dogs/pets are allowed. The flat is also very very warm. I have yet to put my heating on and it’s been cold outside recently. I worry that Summer is going to be a sweat box with the Solar gain and lack of air con but let’s see…

I chose the South side of the building for the light and the view stretching over London. I also didn’t want to be on the North side where there is extensive construction work opposite. Unfortunately it also means you are on top of the train track and that means insane noise. The trains are all diesel so when they stop and start at the station it is a huge sustained rumbling cacophony as they crawl along. When they do not stop it is like a fighter jet flying through your room. It’s not constant one after the other but they are very frequent and it takes some getting use to. Ear plugs don’t cut it. You just have to learn to zone it out which after 2 months I seem to have done.

What I cannot zone out are the neighbours. Despite the flats looking like they are flanked on all sides by thick concrete there are clearly some gaps and flaws in the structure. I can hear the sound of someone urinating every day and night as clearly as if they were in my own bathroom with the door open. It’s very annoying and happens at all hours often waking me up. Upstairs have a strict routine for running around the flat which utterly confounds me because I imagine it’s the same 55m2 footprint as my flat. This actually shakes the concrete ceiling/air vents/ducts. Whilst I accept the notion that stomping upstairs tenants is a cliche for flat living I certainly expected better insulation from what looks like a robust building. The stud walls in the bed rooms and all the doors also physically shake when the neighbours open and close their doors…particularly the wardrobe doors which causes one of my bedroom walls to shake too which obviously wakes you up when they do that at 2am too.

When the trains are not running and the neighbours are not home it is very quiet and lovely but those moments are brief. I tend to have music playing at TV volumes during the day when working from home.

Most of the other tenants seem to be very respectful but there are some tenants in the building who don’t understand the trash system and keep dumping huge bags of rubbish next to the chutes often stinking out the room. There have been occasions when bin bags have split and they’ve just left food and crap all over the lift, corridors etc and the bulk waste room gets all sorts of food stuff thrown in there. Thankfully maintenance are on top of this and it gets cleared immediately if reported. People are also now posting photos on the group page and kicking off so hopefully it won’t carry on.

The other thing which I really didn’t imagine was real is the dust. I am a clean freak. I’d seen reviews from other tenants talking about dust but having viewed a few flats couldn’t understand what they meant. Perhaps they were leaving their doors open and building dust was coming in? When I moved in it was extremely clean and it’s such a minimalist space I thought it would be a doddle to keep spotless. In reality you have to dust every single day and even then when you turn your back it’s there again! It’s an incredibly fine dust……I imagine it’s concrete dust from the ceiling. The light shades get a thicker coating of it but it gets on everything. Probably not the best for anyone with breathing issues.

Ultimately I can tolerate the shortcomings of the flat because I am only here for another 10 months but I wouldn’t consider living here longer term, especially given the rent. If you work in the area and want to live somewhere that looks trendy then I don’t think you’ll find anywhere that looks as cool. I have friends in Television centre who are paying more but they don’t have the New York high ceiling loft vibe. That said they also don’t have insulation problems.

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

I moved to Wembley Park purely for convenience as I will be working nearby for the 12 months of my tenancy. It is not the kind of area I ever imagined I would choose to live in as there is absolutely no nature, peace or open space. Other than being all concrete and steel the estate is generally extremely busy and noisy. As can only be expected on match days the whole area is absolutely mental and it is simply not worth leaving the flat. The area is also a bit soulless but it is very practical with a good transport links, a decent range of shops, places to eat etc (I’ve been to Bread Ahead & Box Park a few times) Within the limits of the Park it does feel very safe and very clean. It reminds me of a cross between MK and Canary Wharf. QL really should have put a park in Wembley Park but alas the only significant green space that exists is the pitch within the Stadium. Having a car is a good way of escaping to greener areas at the weekend.

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

Noise! See above

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

Mentioned above. I raised an issue about smelly trash in the bulk storage room and it was cleaned up immediately.

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.
