Pretty good apartment, moved in recently and it came in great condition and was furnished very well, which I paid extra for. It wasn’t new when I moved in but definitely felt like it. The apartment came with a balcony with an aerial view of west London. Concierge is professional and helpful all-round, open 24hrs, and helpful pick up parcels by keeping it safe till I come to collect it. I appreciate the security , with cctv throughout inside. Th secure bike racks is also great for cyclists, I don’t use it however since I’m not a cyclist. I like the the effort management takes to create a community, with a common breakout room for socialising with events once a month. There’s also an outdoor barbecue facilities too on the garden terrace, which hosts events during the summer. And to top it off, the very top floor has a garden patch you can grow your own veg.

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

Best positive is that it’s next to the station, I can get around London fairly quickly. Pretty convenient for shopping since tescos and sainsbury’s is nearby. It feels safe generally even for London. However I would say this area is pretty dull, it much going in the surrounding area, and the road below can get a bit noisy.

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

Can’t think of anything obvious, it’s been amazing so far

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

Building manage to responsive , they are onsite during the day so you can speak to the personally with any problems. I haven’t had any problems yet but it’s nice to know

I have just recently moved in and so far we like the development. The residents seem lovely and the management team seem always willing to help. The on site maintenance guy is very helpful as well. We have had a few issues with it being a new house but they are getting sorted out so fingers crossed this will be the perfect home soon. The house it’s really nice laid out and all properties seem really spacious.
The garage area is clean and the parking bays are big.
There is a large garden area where families with dogs meet up most evenings which seems great for socialising and for dogs to play with each other.
I can’t review all the facilities as the socialising areas are closed due to Coronavirus so I will have to update later on.

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

Really like that it’s close to the park as my son loves it there. I don’t particularly like the area as it’s a bit crowded…at least close to the market and the Green Street are. But the development has a small private road so that’s lovely. Many shops nearby…really like the fish and chips shop around the corner. Upton Park is only 4 min walk away so that’s super convenient.

A beautiful community, in a well finished development that brings positivity to the otherwise not so positive surroundings.

I think the forge is an outstanding property with impressive furnishings and amenities. Despite the gym currently being closed, everything you could want or need is provided in the building. A spacious lounge is found on the first floor which has been used for parties, and I have recently discovered a Ping Pong table on the premises?!!? Amazing! The rent is somewhat well priced considering what’s included and the finish of the development itself. However.

The BEST thing about this development by far is the community. The people, agents, maintenance crew – everyone is lovely and it really makes living here feel homely. Despite having our issues with the moving in process and our issues with the letting agents, we have been made very welcome. The staff are very kind and talkative and feel more like friends than professionals doing their duty for the development. The neighbours and renters here are all such nice people as well, being an extremely international community we have become friends with many of the tenants and we have begun to create small ‘Forge clubs’ exclusively for the tenants on site and for us all to befriend each other.

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

I am happy enough to be living in Upton Park, although the area is slightly disheartening and does not have the most ‘comfortable’ feel, I am confident enough to walk around. As an adult male, I have no troubles walking around but could see how women may feel uncomfortable in the area. The district line has regular occurring issues and therefore can sometimes cause havoc when travelling, but the district line takes you far. Upton Park has lovey parks around the area that are well kept and green and so you can enjoy greenery when going on a walk around Upton Park. It’s close to forest gate which is also a lovey little town. The shops here are not ideal (2x Tesco’s and an Iceland), however, if you don’t mind walking an extra 10 minutes you arrive in East Ham where there is a LIDL, or another 15 minutes in the other direction and you are in Barking where there is an ASDA Superstore (ideal).

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

I wish I had known the prices properly, as the prices were not made abundantly clear. Neither were the options of apartments in terms of location within the development, height of apartment (what floor), the view etc. And I wish I had known there was cheaper supermarkets “close by”.

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

Storage space?!!! There isn’t enough of it
The furniture included with the property is very ‘hit and miss‘ as some colours are nice, some tables are too big or there may not be a big enough closet storage. I expected the furniture to be at a higher standard than it is, but perhaps that was my fault for not purchasing my own…

Rubbish management lets this apartment down

Management

Development is generally nice, I moved in new and flat was of good quality, and comes with a balcony. I don’t have many problems with the flat in general, it’s been mostly positive . However property management has been very poor. I’ve been promised 24hr concierge, and that’s not there. Concierge is only there 5 days a week which is not what I signed up for, causes unnecessary confusion with any parcels that get delivered to my address. There’s also random fire alarms once a month, due to the local sainsburys, and many times no one is there to investigate what happened . Also safety information is very unclear in case for a fire, we have no idea what to do. In addition the hot water would cut off because of the fire alarms and would take hours to fix since there is no concierge to tell half the time. What brings this development down is its inadequate management, it’s a shame for a decent apartment.

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

I like that it’s easy to get to central, Connie isn’t to get to places. Shops nearby and Westfield and eating high street nearby.

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

The rubbish management and this me being misled into thinking there’s 24hr concierge.

What is the best feature of your home:

The balconies, every flat has one and it’s a nice place to chill out
