St George developments

You can find out more about St George developments on HomeViews. St George developments listed on the site include sought-after riverfront properties like Imperial Wharf and St George Wharf – The Tower, and centrally located units in up-and-coming areas such as Coindale’s Beaufort Park.

The site is mostly pedestrianised, so it’s great for children. It’s a short walk to the river, past a supermarket, a couple of restaurants and a great pub. I love living here as the flats are high spec and come with high speed internet and airconditioning.” – Laura, verified resident at Imperial Wharf

Tenants beware hidden charges for air cooling

There is an issue in Fulham Reach which is that the service charge – payable by the owners/landlords – includes the air cooling/heating. It does so on a fixed basis, so regardless of usage, each flat pays a share based on square footage. This charge is not just for the use, but also the maintenance of the system – and it is not metered. If you leave the flat empty, or run it on full blast for 12 months, your charge will be the same. As a tenant of Fulham Reach, you will unwittingly sign a lease drafted by an agency (in my case JLL) which binds you into paying this charge for the landlord – which I think is unfair, especially as the landlord will have paid it in advance and could be transparent with you at the beginning as to what this charge is. My landlord waited until a few weeks after my lease had ended, having never mentioned or disclosed this charge, and then deducted it from my deposit. I took them to the tribunal, but of course JLL’s drafting was very friendly for their client, the landlord, and so I lost. So, two pieces of advice: 1. Either cross out the air cooling clause in your tenancy before you sign it, or agree the charge up front with the landlord (remember, they have paid it in advance); and/or 2. Bear this in mind when you would otherwise be sensibly trying to conserve costs in running the system – you can’t save yourself any cost – it is a fixed charge.

Bringing a little bit of luxury to Hammersmith

We bought a 2-bedroom apartment off plan and were one of the first residents in Distillery Wharf.

The apartments are of good quality overall with impressive design features (particularly the marble bathrooms, leather wardrobes). Other add-ons include air conditioning which was great in the summer (we never had to use the heating in the winter as the building is so well insulated), built in speakers and Lutron lighting all controlled by the control4 system (although I should add that this system froze a lot and did not function properly after one year of use). A handy video screen also allows you to see who is ringing your door bell at the main entrance (although again we had a few issues with this functioning after one year). The kitchen has high specs and everything worked well for us and the double glazed windows made it virtually impossible to hear anything outside which was great. We liked the pre-payment system for heating/water as we could control our costs and it was easy to monitor (much more transparent than other providers out there).

The facilities were the prime draw for us in this development and are second to none. Having doorstop access to the gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and cinema room was fantastic. We used the swimming pool in particular very often (having a swim pre and post the office to classical music was rather nice) and it often felt like we were in a hotel. We did notice however that it got increasingly busy at peak times as other buildings in the development completed so it will be interesting to see how they control this. We used the wine room, billiards room and virtual golf room for entertaining which went down well with friends and family – particularly as our flat could not host large numbers. The development is also very pram and young children friendly with wide doors and lifts.

In terms of service, the professionalism and attitudes from the staff was great and it did feel like entering a hotel with the ambiance and their attentiveness. The 24/7 Concierge service is very convenient for residents and Angus in particular does a great job at running the show. The service charge in my opinion however is high and not justifiable.

In terms of the location, we have really seen the transformation of this area over the past few years and enjoyed having Harris and Hoole, Tescos Express, the Blue Boat pub and Cafe Plum nearby. We also enjoyed being a 5 minute walk to our favourite restaurant, the River Cafe. To add to this, the development is a 10 minute walk to Hammersmith station which offers four tube lines and is conveniently located for the A4/M4 if getting out of London. The river path has also been significantly improved over the past two years with beautiful pedestrian routes down to Putney making this neighbourhood a desirable place to live.

Overall, we enjoyed living here and have many fond memories!

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

The service charge pricing and breakdown was not very transparent – this should be clearer.

Disappointing, communication poorly managed and frequent problems with facilities

Aircon repeatedly fails in flats and facilities – residents not informed when not working in facilities and not fixed after months of complaining. Communication is poor from facilities and building management.

Incredibly loud creaking noise when windy making it unable to sleep at night.

Exec lounge is not exclusive to resident with local residents and businesses able to use it at the same price as residents – £50 an hour.. St George are able to use the lounge and I have frequently been told to move because they want to use it with no notice.

Concierge team are great and when facilities work they are also great however given how many times I have been let down, things still not fixed in facilities and flat after months plus the poor communication I would not recommend renting here.

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

Aircon useless, communication poor, concierge good

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

Facilities look good but poorly managed

Amazing river views, like living in a hotel

I have lived in some other London developments and this is the best by miles. The interiors, facilities and services from the concierge are more like a hotel, just without the room service. We are lucky to have fantastic views of the Thames; which we didn’t really focus on until we moved in, as we are only renting. Everyone who visits comments on what a great view it is.

I like the gym a lot too; it’s got good equipment and is kept clean and tidy and the instructors are very friendly and helpful. All in all we love the lifestyle that renting here affords us. The only negative I would mention is that in previous developments we have been able to rent storage space in the basement, and we could really do with that here  we have ended up using my daughter’s bathroom as storage space, which is a bit of a shame.

All in all though, it’s a fantastic rental option.
