Amazing building in zone 2

We really like our building 🙂
concierge, rooftops (the views are fantastic – you can see London Eye, the City and Canary Wharf) and gym. Having the garage parking is a big plus!
We bought a 3 bedroom and is extremely comfortable and big for London standards.

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

The good aspects: location, good community in the building
The bad aspects: no good quality restaurants and cafes/bakeries

How close walking distant is from Tower bridge

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

Very fast! Every time we email the company they always reply within a few hours and usually with a solution.

Manager Response

Hello Filipa,
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review.
We are thrilled to hear that you like your building. The views do sound fantastic!
Thank you

Really enjoy living here, great location and very well designed apartment

The design of the building from the exterior is nothing to write home about but inside the design of the apartments is really great. I live in a three-bedroom taking the master/ensuite bedroom and the space is excellent, the views from the full-length window across the Thames and 02 is really nice to look out on as I work from home. The bathrooms are nice and modern as expected. The gym is very good and the concierge is super friendly and helpful. The balcony is very spacious and a very nice addition. The fact the balcony is totally private from the other flats is also nice.

Probably the main negative aspect about the flat I would say would be the fact there isn’t a door between the lounge/kitchen and the three bedrooms – a simple door, while slightly breaking up the open plan feel of the flat, would help tremendously to reduce noise when you’re trying to sleep and others are watching TV or hosting friends in the lounge as I find the noise really caries from the lounge/kitchen into the bedroom (and I’m in the bedroom furthest from the lounge). This being said, the noise insulation in the individual bedrooms is very good, rarely can hear anything when others are making noise in their bedrooms.

The only other minor niggle is that sometimes you do have to wait a little while for the lifts, this was exacerbated when one of the two lifts broke down and took a number of weeks to be fixed.

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

With Crossharbour DLR stop literally right on our doorstep getting around London is extremely easy and convenient. There is only one large supermarket (Asda) that is close but there is two convenience shops (Tesco Express and Co-Op) within a short walk. Probably the only downside would be the noise from the DLR but it’s a trade off with living so close too it and is well worth it for the convenience.

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

The information about the heat network!

It wasn’t explained properly too us and one day we woke up without any hot water and had no idea what to do, we thought the boiler might be broken not realising we’d just run out of credit and took quite a few hours of totally confused research to realise. None of the three of us had lived in an apartment building before so didn’t know what a heat network even was and just assumed because we payed our electricity bill this would cover hot water and heating.

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

I haven’t had to reach out to the tenant management company very often but haven’t found that they’ve been very professional or helpful and given the significant amount of rent we’re paying would have expected a slightly more professional service, it’s not a major gripe but could be better.

Very hot. Very noisy.

Ok. Let’s start with the good points: Great concierge, good gym and nice roof terrace.

However, the building is almost entirely glass and has no air conditioning except for the top few floors. This means that with the windows closed the temperature inside our flat quickly reaches over 35 degrees centigrade even on an autumn day. Of course, we could open the windows but the noise outside is simply unbearable. In particular the Jubilee line trains are very noisy and pass by non stop at a rate of 1 per minute. So you constantly face the choice of either sweltering in the heat or being bombarded with noise.

We also have problems with smoke smells inside our flat. Nobody has ever smoked in here, but the smell of cigarettes comes through from the neighbour’s flat. It appears to be coming through the bathroom wall.

If you are thinking of buying a flat here to rent out then fine. If you are thinking of buying to live in then I’d strongly advise that you don’t.

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

If you are doing a viewing here then pay attention to the noise level and think about how much sun your flat will get. If it has a sunny aspect then you are going to roast.

Very disappointing, has potential

Modern building is nice, and my flat has a decent space inside. It’s location is good, being so close to the station. It is also great that it has air con and a balcony, can be hard to find these feature in London. The management is good at communicating with residents, and ensures the bins are always collected.
BUT dreadful concierge, won’t hold food or keys for you… they only do parcels.

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

While the area is is fantastically diverse, and has so many independent businesses and good nightlife, the area has A LOT of drawbacks. It is very noisy (especially at night), it’s quite dirty and grubby, often has broken glass in the street, frequently damage to parked cars, and it’s not the safest place

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

Concierge service has too much power, dictating what they will and won’t d0, and placing unnecessary restrictions. Also not enough car park spaces, and no guest spaces.
Expensive bills too…

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

Don’t use the conciege as much now, they have really come up short

poor design has resulted in unwanted pillars protruding from the walls

Window design and quality is very poor: (1) There are draughts through some of the windows, which lowers the temperature within the flat. TGM came twice to fix them, and it did not work. (2) There is no way to stop the slamming of the windows if they are open even with the slight breeze outside.
Interior: poor design has resulted in unwanted pillars protruding from the walls.
Winter garden: we strongly feel that it should have been completely sealed to make it usable. For the way it is now, it is like dead space. Besides, there are no plug points in it.
No space around the bathroom sinks. The position of the tower rails is too invasive, preventing us to place a cabinet in the bathroom.
Really bad point: when it’s windy outside, there is a constant cracking noise coming from various parts of our ceiling/walls due to the movement of certain vents.
Design of bedrooms could have been better: in our master bedroom, the cupboard size leaves a tiny space to its side which is not big enough for an adult to have a desk there.
Fire alarms: they went off for no reason on a few occasions.

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

Local amenities and transportation are excellent. Parking availability: very bad & car park fees super expensive. Bin collections: big recurring issues with bulky collections. Security: street lights between building and station not working. We are aware of aggressive behaviour in the area. No monitoring of sound system volume of singers or street preachers.

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

The bad quality of the windows.

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

Mixed feelings. Some of the issues were resolved, but the very important issue of the draught through the windows it has not.
