Where do I start?

Upperriverside and the surrounding area really break the mould when it comes to the standard they provide!

We recently moved from Canary Wharf with the hope Greenwich would bring activities and community, and it certainly delivered.

Concierge for all 4 buildings in upper riverside are so helpful and friendly. We’ve been here since July and they’ve helped us every step of the way. Our flat is ultra modern, and as we are the 18th floor, the views of London are breathtaking.

The aftercare team have also helped us with any little requests we have made about the flat & management always take the communities feedback on board.

Our apartment is ultra-modern and perfect for a couple working in central London, as the commute is only 20 minutes to Westminster and 25 to Marleybone – ideal for a stress-free morning commute.

I’ve never been part of such a community where everyone is so happy and ours neighbours are all friends- it’s great!

We also know people that live in the Lighterman and Besserman who regularly enjoy workouts with us and take walks with them to enjoy the many parks in the surrounding area.

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

There is so much to do! Our favourite bar has to be Ardoa, their wine and food is incredible. We also love a long walk down the river where there is an ecology park, perfect environment for relaxing on the weekend.

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

I would have liked to have had more knowledge on the services available (The tide). I’m now a member and go frequently, as I joined through a friend.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature has to be the views from our balcony and rooftop terrace.

No 4 Upper Riverside Review

The design of the building is modern and clean, it has high end furnishings but doesn’t comprimise on comfort and space. There are plants and mirrored furniture that give the feeling of space and make it truly luxurious. The facilities are something that stood out to me the most, the gym space and equipment and then the full length pool and changing rooms are something you’d see in a high end gym but yet are right on your doorstep.
Property management has been fantastic and attentive, they’ve answered emails and couldn’t have made my move more smooth,

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

No 4 couldn’t be situated in a better location, it’s proximity to the 02 with all the shops and restaurants is incredible, the tube is close by and you can be in Canary Wharf in 5 minutes. The tube is on the jubilee line and has great access to where you need to be. Theres a lovely little haven of a green park close by and is great to take some time out of the hustle and bustle of busy life.

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

The actual apartment layout. I saw the floor plan but I hadn’t been able to see my apartment itself so was hard to imagine where items would be,

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

They have always tried their best especially in light of COVID-19 they have done their best and answered questions and sought to reach the most applicable solution

Noisy, lazy staff, OK amenities but you won’t be able to sleep here.

The development has a nice pool. An OK cardio gym but almost no weights. It is nice to have a pool but for some reason it is just always a bit too cold in my opinion. The cinema rooms are nice but impossible to book and no one verifies if people actually show up. For some reason in the apartment they cheaped out on putting plugs in the kitchen island.

I lost one of my belongings and emailed the concierge. They didn’t respond so the next day I went to them in person and they didn’t have it. Alright. I went back two weeks later and surprise surprise they had what I lost. They know who I was, my name was on it yet no one went through the trouble to let me know they found it after all. The support you will get really depends on who you ask. Most of them are counting down until the end of their day and don’t care. They will be friendly in your face but come up with artificials rules onto why they wont do something. – Some have been helpful though but the good ones are in a minority.

As much as it is nice to have some of these amenities and service even though they are not perfect they are totally overshadowed by the fact that you can not sleep in your own apartment on the weekend because of the constant parties. I can not recommend living here to anyone in good faith. It’s horrible to live like this.

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

Arranging parking is nearly impossible.
Neighbors holding parties all night long with very loud music, smelly drugs and drunk people in the hallways. Nothing is ever done about it resulting in sleepless nights and paying for a hotel.
Apartments on AirBnb being used for parties while in the contracts it is clearly stated that you are not allowed to list them.
The metal railings downstairs make a horrible noise when the wind flows through them.
Dog pee in the elevator and no one cleaned it up for 12 hours.

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

The parties… I really should have known. This is not acceptable.

What is the best feature of your home:

My apartment is rather large and its nice to have some space.

GRW Peninsula, a façade: A lot of nice stuff covering low quality and very poor service

The development is good, but some things are a facade of very low quality aspects.

The gym, the pool, concierge, perks are quite good and one of the main reasons I’d find difficult to move. The flat spaces and design is good, living comfortable.

The quality of materials used is extremely disappointing. Walls get scuffs and marks just by staring at them, furniture provided is extremely cheap and uncomfortable.

Landlord hasn’t cleaned the windows in over a year; making it disgusting to look outside when the sun is setting.

The service from the landlord and the management company is below par.

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

The local area is good; with the O2 and its range of shops Is very convenient. In addition, the park, local pub and being next to the Thames is quite nice. I like it here.

Depending on the Jubilee line is not bad at all and North Greenwich has a large range of bus routes to take you almost anywhere.

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

Quality of wall paint, quality of furniture, sactual support I could be expecting, how often do they really clean the windows.

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

Quality of wall paint, furniture, much, much better service.

Building 1 over view

Building 1 is a nice building. It is however disappointing not to have concierge in the reception. The building is accessible by the public and non residents being by the entrance to the tide and Ardoa and cafes can access the post room and risk safety. I’ve never understood why there is no furniture on the roof terrace of floor 18 when all other buildings have furniture so there is no chairs or tables to relax and enjoy that area, is this something that is being looked into? Some rooftops have too much furniture and so could lend this to building 1. The reception area in building 1 also has very limited seating or relaxing space compared to other buildings where they have nice sofas, chairs and tables. Can this be revisited.? I’d also say the design and layout of the flats are smaller than other buildings.

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

The location of the development is excellent. Transport links are great and being by the river is lovely. There could be more bars and restaurants for that community feel. Affordable Parking could be better and a limit on social housing is necessary because it is having an impact on the look and feel of the area.

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

That the wall to my flat is adjacent to social housing. Had I known I may not have purchased the property due to ongoing noise issues. Access to amenities are not permitted to shared ownership residents even if you staircase to own 100% which is poor even when the owners are willing to pay for them. This really needs to be reviewed.

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

I would most definitely change the layout. The internal design is awkward and clunky giving no appreciation of space or storage. Some interior finishes feel rushed. Access to the balcony from the living area would’ve been better than from the bedroom.
