The development itself, design-wise is great, though with one issue. Whenever it gets very windy – a common occurrence for this area as it is riverside – the bedroom window emits an irritating noise whenever it is closed. I contacted property management for this, and although they helped locate the source of the problem, I understood it was to do with the design of the building and the weather conditions of the area. Having a more durable architectural solution to deal with this issue would help.

The facilities I have gotten to use so far, mainly the gym and the pool are all great. The weights room at Building 2 does get busier than expected at times and could be slightly more spacious, but the gym equipment is terrific and the floor is fine. The rooftop terrace is beautiful. I like being able to use the tables on the ground floor of each building to work at times, too. I have yet to try the cinema room but like what I have seen of it and look forward to trying it out when we can actually have friends over again!
Otherwise, the design of the building and the homes are state-of-the-art and kept that way. They’re really taken care of well, and with love – it really shows!
Building and property management are great. They always respond promptly to issues and are very willing to help.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The existing restaurants, bars, cafes and open spaces are great. I just wish there was a wider range outside of the O2 shopping mall as well. The supermarkets, however, are inadequate for the area – their products aren’t of great quality and their stock and range are small, as they are small supermarkets. Having a large supermarket with an expansive range of products without having to travel to Charlton or other parts of Greenwich would be very helpful.
As to transport links, no complaints there. Living here is great for that.
Traffic noise hasn’t been terrible but does sometimes exist. Some weekends I can hear car and pedestrian noises around 1-2 am which isn’t great. I do live on the second floor of my building though so I guess that’s inevitable.
Construction noise is a bit of a problem, both regarding noise and visual pollution. Sometimes it gets to the point where I have my headphones on for much of the day as a result.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The shortage of supermarkets within the area. I’ve shopped for groceries more from Charlton or other parts of Greenwich than here!
How crowded the Jubilee line can really be – as good as it is for getting from one end of the city to another…
What is the best feature of your home:
I adore the interior design of my flat, from the open plan kitchen to the living room. It’s both spacious and pleasing to the eyes.
