Perfect modern home

Review Date Sep 2021

Excellent quality and we spend most of time inside the apartment building – cozy communal areas where I can WHF with complimentary coffees and small green park where I can take a walk with my pet when tired, and modern and clean apartment which makes me very comfortable. Feel as if I live in a luxury hotel.

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

Perfect for having a modern and convenient life – a lot of choices of restaurants (price and kind of dishes), supermarkets and other stores, where you can live only in the small Canary Wharf. Can enjoy fresh air in many parks within waling distance with glittering river, which makes my life comfortable especially covid and WFH environment.

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

When Virgin wi-fi service become available – did not know it would take up to 3 days to have registration for the service

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

First aid people came promptly and explained why/how issues occurred clearly – as it was complicated one (water leakage), they connected immediately to the right people and all resolved soon.

The design of the building is very modern and contemporary which makes the building stand out. In regards to facilities, the building has all the amenities required for its residents such as different types of common rooms to relax. The concierge is very helpful and kind in terms of any inquiries I have about my stay.

The building is in the prime location for everything in terms of amazing restaurants, supermarkets, gym, and station.

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

I wish I would’ve known that the gaming console in the common area only has one controller so I could’ve brought my own controller to play with.

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

The building management have always been responsive to help with my personal needs.

The building management team are absolutely fantastic and the concierge team are super friendly especially Lisa and Heidi! They have an especially good knowledge of the wine selection 😉 The communal facilities are really comfortable too and is always kept clean

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

Really excellent location and facilities but the deliveries from the convenience store downstairs is a little noisy! Security is amazing second to none!

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

It would have been useful to know a complete picture of all the commercial tenancies that had been agreed before we moved in.

The building is great, the concierge team are fantastic. Lisa, Heidi and Tom are great, always extremely helpful and friendly. They make the days working from downstairs in the shared workspace that little bit better. The cleaners are always helpful and friendly too and do a great job of keeping the place immaculate.

Very good place to live, very clean and safe. Great transport links and everything you need is on your doorstep

I never had any concerns or required further information prior to moving in. Everything was detailed at the start.

Great

Review Date Oct 2021

The design is very impressive. Anything you could think of is available or nearby. Gym membership, rooftop access, lounges, and bookable private areas to relax and unwind with friends and family. The management are very helpful and are always one button away, ready to assist in any matter thinkable. Heidi especially was very helpful and always went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable.

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

The only bad thing I can talk about is the service, but this issue is not only in this building. Rather, this problem occurs all around Canary Wharf. Otherwise, this apartment and the building itself is extremely well designed. Heidi at the desk is a delight to talk to, and she’s always going out of her way to make sure the tenants are enjoying their stay.

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

The service issue in the area. I wish I had known.

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

Very swiftly. They helped with anything I needed and always made sure I was comfortable.

The internal management on site are quick to fix issues and are very prompt however it did take long to get my contract which wasnt ideal. However as i moved in the team have been amazing with onboarding. It feels like a hotel. The interiors are superb and will highly recommend this building. I also love the free 1 year third space membership

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

Love the Amazon fresh sharing a wall with the building. Its just a 2 minute walk to the Montgomery street exit of the Canary Wharf Jubilee line, 5 minutes to Heron Quays, 5-10 minutes to Poplar Station. Its just so accessible. Wonderful scenery of the financial district from my balcony.

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

Not much really as it was everything described.

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

Yes they have really quickly.
I love how we can communicate with concierge from our apartment using the intercom

Everything is very well designed.
Free coffee and tea for residents, large lounge area, friendly concierge, big roof top!
No gym/swimming pool but compensated with membership at third space – fantastic!
Everything is fresh and new so you don’t have to hide the ugly pillows.

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

Pros
– Jubilee line 3 min away from building
– secured area 24/7
– fantastic bin system for residents
– everything (at Canary Wharf) within walking distance

Cons
– construction noise
– no shops (fashion etc) on streets only underground.

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

Safest area in London to live! 24/7 security, Amazon fresh

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

Yes, they responded within 1-2 working days depending on the issue.
