I love everything about living here except the gym!

Review Date Jul 2021

The design is amazing. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the facilities except the gym are divine. I would really appreciate if the gym is upgraded to allow a more well rounded experience as it is equipped with resistance machines which would more likely be used by men than women. The lack of barbells/ plate weights in a gym of such a prestigious building is rather disappointing.

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

I love living in my local area. Everything is close enough and within reach! I really hate the gym at Moda though. The equipment are more upper body focused neglecting the lower body and there are no proper weights. This has been the downside of my move.

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

I wish I new the gym wasn’t as equipped as I thought it would be.

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

I just recently moved in and have not raised any complaints yet.

Thank you for your review Tonia, we are pleased you are enjoying the style and quality of the building. We value all feedback and are reviewing our next options on gym equipment, the initial vision being light weights and cardio to provide a safe environment for unmanned works outs, 24/7 – with our Neighbors at Hero being able to facilitate more tailored workouts.

The building is great and the amenities are brilliant, modern and accessible all day. Makes being in lockdown easier. Cinema room is unreal and and the gym is small but never really that busy so perfect for a quick work out. Good working space too with nice views.

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

It’s in a fantastic location, the arndale just down the road and close to a lot of bars in the northern quarter for when they do open again.

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

I wish Covid wouldn’t of taken so long as I would of made more the my time in Manchester.

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

The neighbours were being noisy and within seconds they come to solve the problem

Overall it’s a stunning place. Only suggestion is that it could be more ‘green’. Fairly well maintained and loads happens to make residents life better here. Lots of events, connections with local businesses, hero training club on site is a huge plus

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

Just a short walk into city centre as well northern quarter. Couldn’t ask for more.

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

Facilities booking could be easier and transparent

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

Flat is great but table and chairs are oversized to be utilised (2 chairs against wall) – property could be ‘greener’ and hallways etc. Could be more consistently decorated and furnished

The facilities are great and the location is good but the apartments could me built to last more. They’re all new but it doesn’t seem like a huge amount of money has been spent on things that last. The table is wobbly, the oven had an issue and things like that. Also the hot water system isn’t ideal

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

It’s too noisy and busy but it’s near all the shops which is good

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

The traffic noise is quite loud in the apartment

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

Well, but sometimes could resolve issues more efficiently

Thank you for your review. Hopefully we can assist with some of the items you note? Ryan our Facilities Manager will make contact with you directly.

Beautiful Development :)

Review Date Feb 2021

AG is in a fab location with all amenities on your doorstep. Apartments are furnished beautifully, although the sofas are unfortunately not the comfiest. The amenities (pre lockdown) are the main reasons we chose to live here, they are great, especially the library! Staff are fantastic, Jay and David imparticular.

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

Everything is within walking distance. Cafes, bars, shops and the Arndale Centre.

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

Can hear neighbours above quite easily when they are walking around the flat or moving furniture.

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

Very quick to respond and deal with any issues that have been raised.

Angel Gardens is a gorgeous development, lovely apartments with great facilities. In particular I love the rooftop terrace and the communal areas such as co-working and atrium, it’s nice to have these areas to spend time with your neighbours which is unlike anywhere I have lived before and a real plus having a community to get to know.

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

Fantastic location, you couldn’t really be any more central! A few mins walk to Victoria Station, Metrolink around the corner, on the doorstep of Ancoats and NQ for all your hipster needs and city centre is 5 mins walk away.

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

I wish I had known that there was a plan to charge for certain facilities and events in the future. My understanding was the facilities and events were part of the rent we pay (which isn’t cheap), that’s certainly how it was marketed originally. To then find out we will have to start paying for private dining and media room is underhand. Also the same with certain events / nights in etc. I feel like it wasn’t the plan and the goal posts were just changed.

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

I wish I was in a flat that had some direct sunlight as I don’t get any!

Thank you for your review Karl. We do love the roof terrace, very excited for our Spring plans! We have reworked our messaging to assist with which our community offering is for events, and which are 3rd party exclusive offers that are an optional offering. Look forward to sharing and receiving feedback at the upcoming forum, and of course clarifying that the amenity hire costs.

Good now, will be great

Overall, we have loved living here. There has only been one big issue maintenance wise since we moved in and it is the windows. When the wind is strong outside, the wind whistles through the seals in the windows and it is very loud inside the apartment.

The other issue we have faced here are the inconsistent messages from the management team – amenities were included in rent, then they were an additional charge, bookings were not honoured and occasionally you had to book through concierge rather than the Moda app which made it very confusing. I think having a better comms strategy in place would help reduce the frustration some of us feel.

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

The area is perfect for us. Very close to town, next door to the train station and underground secure parking.

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

We would have liked to have known they were starting to charge for amenities. Rent is high so it was a shock to learn there would be additional charges later on down the line.

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

Improving communications with residents about changes to policy / amenities bookings.

Thank you for your review Carly. We appreciate feedback that messaging has been challenging during Covid and we have had to adapt process’ and move with advice often. We hope that all is clear currently and we can continue to feed into this with feedback and provide absolute clarity.

It’s a great building, facilities are better than the competition in Manchester so far. The apartments are very well designed but A little pricey for what you actually get.

2 beds are very good sized but the one bed options can be a little small. Impossible to get a view without going up the tower where the price goes up each floor

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

It’s a great area, just a few minutes walk to the arndale, northern quarter and Ancoats so filled with bars, restaurants and shops.

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

During lockdown every amenity would close meaning you’re paying a premium but unable to use any of the main selling points without a reduction in rent.

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

Nothing about the apartment. It’s a good layout and well furnished

Location due to outside noise

The building is beautiful inside and outside. The interior design is also very Aesthetic and modern. The the common areas are always well kept and clean. The staff and the concierge are always friendly and welcoming. Great amenities that in the covid period is free to book. I am still looking forward to try the rest of the amenities when it opens up.

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

Very safe area and plenty of shopping opportunities nearby. The only this I miss is a park and more green areas.

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

I would have liked to to know more about the amenities that are closed here in the lock down.

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

I would love to have something in the courtyard for training. A pull up bar would be amazing!

Thank you for your review Mette. We appreciate your feedback on how the team manage the spaces for your enjoyment. Have you tried the Meadows park, and New Islington Marina? Perfect for a lockdown stroll. We are looking forward to the Summer weather and lot’s of outdoor exercises in the Courtyard planned!
