Excellent location and facilities – maintenance is great, although property management could improve

Verified Resident

Review Date Feb 2021

The design is great, and the flat is brilliant. There has been a good coverage on most services at all times, although through the pandemic the gym has been closed, and the concierge had to close for a couple of months. I’d say that repairs and building maintenance issues are fixed extremely quickly – some of the property management is disappointing, I had one issue that took seven months to respond to… but is now being addressed. Pre pandemic there were tons of activities, trips, and quizzes, which was great – and there’s been a good attempt to keep things going virtually.

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

The property is very well located, directly opposite Canning Town station – literally 30 seconds – and there is a morrisons and a 24 gym next door, in addition to the gym inside the building. There’s a Costa coffee at the station, and an Ibis next door with a full bar downstairs. Obviously a lot of this is limited during covid, but generally good.

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

It’s good to know you can get to the Morrison’s undercover through the car park when it’s raining

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

The building management has been responsive to all maintenance services; and indeed all issues – except where it comes to disputes over fees, and this is what took seven months to be addressed

Satisfied

Review Date Feb 2021

Helpful and friendly property management. Vaidas is very responsive. Concierge are good at tracking deliveries. Management are active in organising communal events

The WiFi is quite bad at times and drops quite often. The gym could be more equipped with weights (when facilities become open again)

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

Easy access to transport links. Close to supermarkets. Up and coming area.

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

There is direct access to Morrisons from the parking in the basement.

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

No particular issues but generally responsive to questions

Argo is where you want to be living.

Review Date Feb 2021

Argo has great managers who are there for your needs.
You have any kind of problems with your flat, they will answer to these problems in blind.

They also have the best concierge service, secure and reliable, your deliveries are always in good hands.

The flat itself is very well designed, storage is a big plus, and they have thought of everything to make your life in Argo the best possible.

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

Canning town is growing, restaurants, shops and bars are popping up everywhere around Argo.
The station is 2 steps away, woth easy access to any area in London.

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

I have been told everything, there was no suprises.

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

The pricing was good when we first moved in 3 years ago, but the yearly increase you will feel, and does not always come justified.

Great place to live, great future value

Review Date Jun 2019

Area is ok, up and coming , not that many things at the moment to do, but will change in the future. Great location for getting around london. Close to canary wharf and Stratford. Building management are good and care about the tenants.

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

Can be a bit dodgy if you travel farther east. Some pickpockets operate in the area.

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

That the shops weren’t going to iron up until way later.

Modern apartment development in Canning Town

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Feb 2021

Argo is a BTR development in Canning Town that is very conveniently located for the Tube, DLR and bus station (and some main roads), and from where you can also walk to both Canary Wharf and the Royal Docks, among other places. The development itself is very modern and well insulated, with contemporary pieces of furniture in the apartments and common spaces. The development is served by a community heating scheme, which is the future and something all apartments should be served by.

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

This part of Canning Town/Newham and the adjacent parts of Tower Hamlets has become somewhat gentrified in recent years with lots of new apartments and some coffee shops moving in. It sits right next to a more traditional part of east London.

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

The area immediately outside the development is very concrete and urban – you have to walk somewhere to get to a more pleasant place to walk (which is important when you’re in a lockdown!)

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

Swap the horrible British carpet in the bedroom for hardwood flooring

Could be better

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Feb 2021

Good design but the oven does not offer grill or other conventional functions. Could not make a cake out of it. Could be better if the door is not facing the back stairs door. But overall a good apartments except the rent could be lower. Great location to view fireworks in new year.

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

Close to central london. But would be better if not beside major highways.

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

it is beside a major highway
and it is really noisy outside especially when raining
the functions of the oven
Should have tried the radiators

What is the best feature of your home:

Balcony is big enough for coffee breaks and exercises.

Good building and convenient amenities but not cheap

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Feb 2021

Design is good, pretty modern. Facilities such as the gym is convenient though not very big so it can get crowded quickly. Building management is ok, Vaidas is doing a good job though the windows are not cleaned often enough. Overall building is managed in an average way.

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

Good area now that Morrison’s has opened. Convenient as the canningtown station is across the street. Bin collection is terrible. Bins are too small.

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

The rent hike every year is quite steep despite underlying rental market slowing down

What is the best feature of your home:

The view on the city, the gym, the rooftop, the amenities

Good flat, convenient location

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

We like our flat, it is spacious and a new build so easy to keep clean.
It came furnished which is useful, although we do not like our mattresses.
Nice view (albeit very urban) from our balcony and communal spaces are great (when in use, and not shut due to covid of course)
The building is right next to the tube station which is very convenient.

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

Close to station, more conveniences popping up in this development (hallmark quarter)
still a rough area though for now

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

The wifi isn’t great which has been difficult working from home (though this is currently being worked on), and the energy provider (who you must use) is very expensive

What is the best feature of your home:

Location/Ease of living – easy to get places and is well kept and organised

Great building in a great area

Review Date Feb 2022

The Argo Development is, with the Discovery Tower, one of the nicest buildings in the area. Great design, superb common areas and the guest house that you can book when you have friends and relatives over. The staff is super friendly and for coffee fans, the Starbucks and the Prêt à Manger are your neighbours

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

The Hallsville Quarter in Canning Town is becoming the place to be in East London with increasing shops, coffee shops, restaurants and a cinema soon (can’t wait).

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

The flyover is fairly close to the building which means that there is some noise, so if you’re particularly sensible bear that in mind.

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

Swift resolution after attentive care and follow ups
