King’s Cross Quarter is a development that’s especially popular with professionals, thanks to its close proximity to the transport links of King’s Cross St Pancras.

Regal London reviews

Concierge, parking (separately available) a gym and three pleasant outside spaces. All the flats have a terrace or a balcony, ceilings are high and the flats are bright. Kitchens are all open-plan and the appliances are good quality. The development will be managed by a professional company – good news as the flats all look on to one or other of the communal spaces so you want quiet neighbours.”  – HomeViews Property Pro on The Avenue

Stylish, secure development

Review Date Mar 2021

It’s well looked after development with friendly and helpful people, superb access to restaurants, shops and bars, as well as high-quality, homely apartments.

I love that living here means I have a warm, secure and stylish place to call home. I can’t wait to see how the area develops further.

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

There are lots of supermarkets and shops just a stones-throw away, and the heart of Shoreditch is only a short walk down the road.

The soundproofing isn’t as good as expected – we do hear other people’s music and them coming in and out.

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

There is a company different to your regular energy company that you have to pay for heating and hot water.

What is the best feature of your home:

The wine fridge – it’s that extra touch that makes all the difference.

Manager Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to this survey as your feedback helps us focus where we need to improve. I hope that once lockdown is over, you’ll be able to really get the most out of living at Shoreditch Exchange including being able to use all the great facilities again.

Overall satisfaction – Room for improvement

The flat and generally the development is an excellent construction. Being an engineer myself, I can recognise and focus on the important aspects on a new development. The building is energy efficient as the windows are well insulated, the heating system is environmental friendly as it works with thermostats, the flat itself is really warm. The extra facilities was not something that was tested a lot as they are mostly shut during the lockdown. As long as we were using them, they were handy, comfortable and well equipped. The concierge guys are always welcoming, smiley and helpful with all the queries. In the building management perspective, there is room for improvement as I feel that the communal open spaces are not well managed at least on my flat’s side of the building. The garden has not been maintained recently, the window cleaning is something which was addressed since November and still has not been done. For the property management, for which I am referring to the estate agent, we are happy as they are responsive, when we had an issue they acted quickly

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

The location of the development and the neighbourhood is amazing. Many local shops in proximity which are lovely escapes throughout the week. Open markets, supermarkets and parks in just a short walk which is extremely handy. The transport links are great as there are bus stops and you are just 20 mins from central, and just 2 minutes from the over ground station as well. I have not had any experience with anti-social behaviour and the building is well insulated, so no noise pollution.

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

Some parts of the building are in lack of natural light so I would be more careful on which side of the building I would like my apartment if this is an important factor as it is for me.

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

The floor seems to be quite delegate but apart from that, the flat is in excellent condition

100% recommend but not perfect

My overall score for the development was excellent, because the place is modern, well kept, with lots available in the area. I love everything inside of the apartment, and it’s really starting to feel like home. Outside of the apartment does feel like a hotel, and there’s no freedom to change that and give personal touches as it’s deemed a fire hazard (for example, doormats).

I do feel the cost is rather high, and it is unfortunate that the facilities (gym, cinema and lobby usage) are closed with no plans on being remediated for it. Other facilities (ie rooftop garden) can be a bit more difficult to access depending on apartment location in the building. There have also been several issues with water (temperature issues or no water running across the whole complex). These have been addressed efficiently, with good communication from the team, but also not issues reflective of the price. Perhaps communicating if it was a building error or a wider issue out of their control would address this feeling.

Overall, I would definitely recommend living here, but to keep in mind the price does not make it perfect.

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

Everything is practically on your doorstep! Local shops (Tesco, 2 Sainsbury’s and a Coop) within a few minutes walk, Hoxton overground a stone throw away, and some really lovely parks within a 20min walk. Also so close to Dalston and Shoreditch, where numerous amazing bars and restaurants are. Overall, everything you could practically need from an area is right here.

However, the parking options are lacking, the bins often full (although I think this is partially a covid issue), and some anti-social behaviour on the street that can get a little uncomfortable. No traffic noise if the windows are closed though!

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

I was told on the viewing that bbqs on balconies and drinking on the rooftop were allowed, and only upon getting the contract saw this was not true. In the grand scheme of things it did not matter to me, but tainted my opinion ahead of moving in, so please try to make sure the truth is being told at viewings.

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

Aside from one delay, very efficiently! It has been really lovely knowing and feeling like the team care and are able to address problems quickly.

Water outages and issues galore

External design and aesthetics of the building are nice and finish is of good quality, which is what you’d expect for the price in this area. The concierge, Tom, is also a star and is a real bright spot in the building.

As with many new builds the spaces are optimised for the revenue of the developer, so living spaces in and out of the units aren’t particularly generous.

The management agency used in the development are awful, so for a building with lots of issues re: water (which was constantly shutting off) and recent flooding, they were incredibly unfriendly to deal with. Many young families in the building found the same and moved as a result.

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

Two great local restaurants are nearby: The Bird In The Hand and The Havelock Tavern. A little further on, you also have Brook Green Park and playground which is a nice walk for families. Holland Park is also near but is an awkward walk if you have a push chair. The nice end of Kensington High St is also about a 20 minute walk.

On the downside, good transport is not particularly close though having Kensington Olympia just there means you can get to Hampstead much more easily than you can get to central London.

Noise and air pollution are also an issue. The area is also hemmed in by large A-roads and once traffic picked up after lockdowns, you could really feel the pollution in your lungs. This is compounded by the huge building site next door as they redevelop Kensington Olympia. I recall the prospectus said that the rather small garden in the courtyard provides you with “the freshest air”, which would be a good line in a parody about how agents like to oversell given the size of the garden and the amount of pollution in the area.

Scooters also swarm the street after dark because its a through road, meaning its very noisy if you’re in one of the many flats that looks onto Sinclair Road.

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

Sinclair Road (a through road) is extremely loud at night because of all the delivery scooters. Also no decent grocery stores are near, so not great for families. Never got to use the amenities due to the pandemic but they still made us pay for them.

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

Residents were mostly treated as irritants, particularly when issues occurred. We lost access to running water 9 times in 18 months and the communication was quite aggressive to deflect blame onto the developer and to ask residents to “stop emailing” until the issue was resolved.

Great gym

Nice modern apartment with great facilities including gym, car parking and a very knowledgeable concierge service. Furnishings are great and modern, very comfortable bed! Kitchen fittings are good and lovely dining room table. Amazing wifi – BT fibre optic!

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

Slightly too close to Kilburn High Road but also near Queens Park High Street which is nice.
Milk Beach is a great brunch place on Queens Park.

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

The wifi is super quick!

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

They’ve responded quickly but haven’t actioned the queries yet.
