“Commute to work from development 12 mins drive by car. Central and not far from everything. Management were good with responding. The apartment has the most incredible vie ever. Lots of social events organised by the development.” Verified Resident on The Cargo Building

Rubbish management lets this apartment down

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

Rehearsal Rooms

The design is good, looks great, the lifts are programmed to go down so if you want to go up and someone calls down you go down first, never seen this before? Management of the building has gone down a lot in the 3 years I’ve been here, I emailed recently about the dead Christmas tree in reception was still there 7 months after Christmas, the social areas are all dead, no one cares for the plants, spaces are dirty, you complain, asked to provide evidence? The front of building needs a major wash, as there is no smoking in the building they should supply bins outside in designated smoking areas instead of the floor being used, there are just a lot of little things, they seem to have just stopped caring

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

The area is ok, need more shops, restaurants, would like to see more grass areas, the ones we have are very weedy

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

How the management and running of the building would have turned out in just a few years, we agreed to pay £350 more a month for the same floor and bedrooms in same location as was sold all the extras

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

The flat, all the issues I reported when first moved in.
The building, change onsite staff

Nice development, good for families and pets

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.

Realistic Honest Look of Rehearsal Rooms

It’s a really residential area. It’s quite newly built, the design is practical but because it’s built on new land it has a lot of foundation cracks. Building managers do the minimum though. Maintenance do more than others. The cleaners are really nice! They have BBQ area which is 7.5/10 good. They have a small outdoor “gym” which is awful 3/10 it looks like the designer put it in last minute. Some of the concierge staff are great but some are just on the phone constantly. The parking area is tiny and expensive but they have a great bike lock area. The lounge area is great for you if you have guess over and need bigger area or if you’re working at home, the coffee machine in there though is 3/10. It has great outdoor space and a nice park nearby.

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

It’s great if you work in central London or even at home. It has convenience to the extreme! You’re living on top of the central line of the zone2. You have two small grocery stores right underneath you and a larger one not far.

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

I wish I had known about some limitations of WiFi networks available to the buolding

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

There a mix or attitude from staff positive and negative.
