A place good for city workers and family

Review Date Nov 2018

I have been living here since Dec 2016 and I am enjoying it. Good location for me to get to canary wharf and the city.

The flat layout is good and is very spacious.

Central hot water really makes a difference in my winter bill when heating is on most of time. In particular good if you are couple or a family.

The only downside for me is that the I live in the front row building facing A13/East India Dock Road, so sometimes it can be noisy. Though they have put windows in the balcony, it has helped a lot, this also means less dust in the living room.

I heard that from phase 3 of this development, there will be more going on, such as shops, pharmacy store, etc.? Best efforts are made to well maintaining the communal areas. This place is also family friendly.

There will be 5 phases in total. It will take time but I can certainly see that this place will only get better and better. We now have an excellent and convenient concierge service. Staff here are very friendly and professional. They always do their best to help.

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

I like the transport links, flat size, concierge service and staff, water fountain and green space.
Don’t like when I see some random groups of people sitting there and smoking.

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

The front row building can be a bit noisy but I guess it’s everywhere for London. Living by a main road, the traffic noise, police siren and ambulance, can be disturbing.

Good location and environment but building management need to improve.

The concierge is very friendly and do try to help out however bad experience with the property management Rendall and rittner, rarely answers email, charges the resident without explaining the reason for the charges and if anything is broken in the flat, good luck getting them to fix it. A lot of residents are finding it frustrating dealing with them and the local MP had to step in at a few points. In addition the rubbish disposal is a problem in the development, they do try to clear it but they have underestimated the amount of rubbish residents can produce especially during holiday period. The facilities and green space are positive of the development. Overall if you can overlook the building/property management aspect it is a good place to live. This wouldn’t be a problem if you are renting, but if you are an owner, can be a problem.

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

The location of the development is very good, close to both East India and canning town station. It also has a bus stop in the front and back of the development and a cycle track. 25min walk to canary wharf and 10min walk to Morrisons and coop. There are also plans to develop more green space and open more shops near by.

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

They are demolishing a hotel opposite the development so may have some noise pollution and may affect sunlight in the future

What is the best feature of your home:

Winter balcony if you are facing the road (ime. A balcony with window) which is an extra space for you to store things and set up balcony garden. Great feature as you can use the space even if the weather is bad (unlike open balcony)

Lovely new build

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2018

Aberfeldy Village is a lovely new build village in a sweet spot of East London, between Canning Town and East India DLR stations. It’s location means it’s very easy to get anywhere within London with ease.
The development has a gym and 24-hour concierge, which is handy for office workers since they can accept parcels for you when you’re at work.
The main downside of this development is the lack of shops / other amenities in the area. Although transport links are good, there isn’t a lot to do on the doorstep.
The occupants in Aberfeldy Village are all friendly and you can usually find someone to say hello to when walking around the buildings. There is a well-maintained courtyard area.

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

This area is a nice residential area, however, has very little in the way of shops / things to do. This can become frustrating since you have to get a bus/tube even to get a bottle of milk.

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

The lack of shops, it would have made me seriously consider if the hassle is worth it.

Great place to live in, especially if working in Canary wharf

Review Date Nov 2020

New and modern design, facilities include a 24 hour concierge and gym. Building management provides great service, however service fees is slightly on the high side.

Only thing that is not satisfactory is the waste disposal facilities which is located outdoors and does not have enough capacity to accommodate number of residence living in the development. Which most days rubbish are visible and is an eyesore.

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

Situated between a DLR and Underground station. Walking distance to Canary wharf. Developer is keen to invest to provide more amenities and support local businesses to further develop the area.

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

Building management is very responsive and prompt to send team members to fix any issues raised.

Great development with ongoing improvements and a clear vision for future development plans

Review Date Nov 2020

The design of the development in modern and stylish in my opinion. I particular like central walkway and wild flower gardens that makes up new village avenue. The development has a private Gym and and 24 hour concierge and security – all of whom are helpful friendly. Property Management is good but this is an ongoing issues with waste build up and collection, which only comes once a week instead of twice as is probably needed. Although, this may be a council issues more than the development / Property Management.

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

Local amenities are good with a primary school and GP practice very close, and plenty of grocery and retail shops within 8 minutes walk. Transport is also close with East India DLR and Canning Town tube stations both within 10mins walk.

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

The concierge staff are great! Also, north-west facing apartments get to see amazing sunsets in the summer months.

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

Waste collection is only once a week which means that sometimes the bins will be overflow before collection day.

Great property, close to the city with great management

The design of the flats and of the outside area is great. The flat is spacious and has even a sense that you are in a hotel which I love. All the furniture seems to be new and good quality. The facilities are great, with a gym on site and a concierge which makes things much easier in terms of deliveries. Also, having the property manager on site means things get done a lot quicker and gives us peace of mind that if we ever needed something they are there. Overall our experience has been great so far!

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

Development is great, the flat is well equipped and the management is always on hand to help. Transport link is really great, very quick to get to the city. Not a lot of local amenities but very close to Canary Wharf which is great.

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

During viewings they should say how the parcels and deliveries go to the concierge, this to me was such great news when I moved in, because if you are not in to receive the concierge can receive on your behalf.

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

Being able to choose the heating provider, but only writing this as it is the only thing I can think of.

Great development east London

Review Date Nov 2020

Amazing development design in terms of both the buildings and the green space. It makes you feel like you live in a safe community and everyone is super friendly.
Guys at the front desk are very helpful and friendly.
I have personally moved here and suggested it to other friends and families who later on moved here as well.

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

Closely located to shops and underground/dlr

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

There is a gym.

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

I moved here during the pandemic and had to quarantine for 14 days, and the guys from the management were very helpful.

Good value large apartments but you sacrifice having cafes etc

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

Dislike:
– Being so close to the road. It’s very loud and there is an incredible amount of air pollution.
– Lots of drug dealing around the development which whilst not overly troubling does lead to a lot of weed being smoked everywhere which is annoying to smell.
– Windows are not cleaned enough for the amount of pollution which builds up.
– Needs more parking. The under flat parking is badly laid out with very few spaces.

Like:
– The green spaces in the development
– Build design e.g. nice kitchens, big windows, good layouts and storage
– The storage is amazing and a big selling point
– Very well insulated and cheap to keep warm.
– Like having a good size balcony.

Whilst the noisy main roads can be a frustration, the area has developed positively during our years here

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

Dislike:
– Very industrial area with a lot of pollution.
– Aren’t any hospitality venues, coffee shops, cafes, bars, restaurants.
– No close supermarkets apart from Nisa Local.

Like:
– The connections are good – DLR, buses, Underground.
– Like being near the river.
– Good being close to Canary Wharf for shopping etc.

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

– That there isn’t enough parking.
– There’s nowhere to pop for a drink, coffee, brunch.
– Unrivalled in how big and spacious the flats are.

What is the best feature of your home:

The storage is really great and unlike any new builds we have seen. Also how bright and light the rooms are is a big bonus.

Aberfeldy offers all you need

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

Abelferdy village offers well designed and cozy apartments. The prices are good value compared to the market.
The development facilities’ are very good and efficient. The residents’ gym is well equipped, clean and easy to use. The property management is always at your disposal and very kind and available. Communal areas can be booked and are very comfortable.
Also, there is free bike storage in the building.

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

I like the position, walking distance from Canary Wharf but well connected to central London through DLR and Jubilee.
The property management is very efficient and always at disposal.

Perhaps some apartments are a bit smaller than average.
There are no bars/pubs/cafes or shops, it’s pretty isolated, I think this is the major defect.

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

Whether shops or cafes were going to open in the area.

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

Building management is spot on, always available and kind when contacted. They solved many small issues for us during our time here.

Simple, convenient, modern living

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2020

Very pleasant block with a well-designed community area and garden. Concierge team are excellent and can take packages or keys if you’re not in. The gym is also good, although could do with a couple more machines during busier times. Flats are modern, light and airy and do not feel cramped in the way so many London flats often do. There can unfortunately be some loud traffic noise from time to time as the development is right next to a busy main road. The development has also been plagued with intermittent loss of hot water over the last couple of years but hopefully that has been sorted now with the ongoing works to expand the development.

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

Likes: Excellent transport links with both Canning Town and East India stations less than a 10 minute walk away. Close to the river.

Dislikes: Fairly sparse in terms of entertainment, pubs, restaurants, shops compared to other parts of London.

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

All flats here use HIUs (heating interface units) instead of a traditional boiler. These seem to be terribly unreliable and routinely fill up with debris and dirt, which can cause loss of hot water. I will always think twice about living somewhere with a HIU from now on.

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

The bathroom has no windows, which gives it a rather claustrophobic feel.
