Amazing building

All the staff is hugely available, the design is modern and fresh and the management is simply fantastic.

The area outside the building is huge and clean

Very modern design and well taken care off! Residents have a gym downstairs which is great and you even can book a space/room within the building for any get-togethers, or meetings with friends!
The property managers and concierge are so nice and accommodating, they’ll do whatever can to make sure you’re happy; plus any maintenance issues are always taken care off in good timing.
Secure parking is available for residents and you can arrange this for guests visiting you aswel.

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

Everything you need is within walking distance: your grocery stores, retail shops, restaurants, cinema, night clubs, library etc…

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

Your move in date becomes the day your direct debit for rent payment is set and this currently cannot be changed. So it’s worth considering what day you decide to move in if your pay day falls on an awkward date.

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

Building Management have been consistent in responding promptly with any concerns or queries I’ve had. No complaints here 🙂

Comfortable and homely!

It is a very cozy building/apartment. The staff are very courteous and understanding. They are also ready to listen and help when required. Special shout out to the manager and Habiba who attended to me personally and helped with settling in.

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

I do not drive. However, there’s a huge parking space available as my friend found it easy to download the app and park in about a minute or 2. It is a very serene environment and pretty close to basic amenities and the city Centre itself.

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

I wish I knew the electricity and water bills were included in the rent. Aside that, I’m happy with every other thing.

What is the best feature of your home:

The design and the furniture and fittings are really nice.

New and Excellent Apartment Development

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

The team managing the facility is very professional and friendly, the concierge service is fantastic, and the parcel safe room is very convenient and safe. Good soundproof system. Complementary private wifi and public gym included in the rent. The overall design of the apartments is modern and attractive, and the quality of furniture is great.

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

Excellent location, close to the train station and the city centre, wide variety of shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. Parking available for extra fees. The bin is located in the basement (-1).

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

It would have great if there was an automated bin collection for recycling.

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

They respond very quickly and efficiently. The maintenance team works on site.

Excellent development and a must if wanting to move to Birmingham

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

The design of the building is quite unique and aesthetically pleasing. There has been no issues with the apartment itself or the functions of the building such as the gym and private roof. The views are quite spectacular more so in the night. The staff are wonderful and easily approachable and do their best to resolve any issues ASAP. The furniture such as the beds and sofa are new and comfy and the entire building is always clean regardless the time

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

the development is in a great location due to the close amenities and transport links. The area is not overly busy but it has potential to be a vibrant area once lockdown is lifted.

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

Views in the night are recommended as I believe they are better in the night than the day however this may not be possible

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

No issues so far except for a door rattling but maintenance resolved this within a day of me notifying them

Tenant Review

Verified Resident

Review Date Mar 2021

Good:
– The building’s design is modern and pleasing from outside and inside.
– The building has an indoor gym which is great for blowing some steam off.
– Concierge in the building is super friendly and helpful.
– Parcel room is a perfect place for keeping your online purchases safe until you are able to receive it.

Bad:
– At the time of viewing the property, the management person who showed me the apartment told me that all apartments have exactly the same design. Later, I learned from some neighbors that similar apartments have more or less space, have or don’t have bath tubs, and all are the same price!! So, please be aware to know all layouts because you’re paying the same amount of money.
– Car parking are paid, except for persons with an NHS card! It would be great to have free of charge parking same as workers in NHS!
– The fridge in the apartment is too small. I have to buy daily groceries to accommodate inside the tiny fridge I have.

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

Good:
– The location of the building is convenient to groceries stores (Sainsbury’s – 200 m, Tesco – 300 m).
– The city center and shopping malls are also within few hundred meters away.
– Within walking distance, there is a canal that you can enjoy walking around and has some coffee shops to enjoy having a cup of coffee as well.

Bad:
– The access to the building’s front gate is confusing. Sometimes, Uper drivers and food delivery personnel can’t access to the building’s front gate because there is a sign at the entrance prohibiting drivers somehow to enter.

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

– I wish I had known that similar apartments to mine have different layouts. I would’ve choose to pay money on an apartment with better layout.

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

– I would have larger fridge. The fridge in the apartment is too small.

A wonderful place to live

Review Date Mar 2021

Carefully thought out and stylish design.

Stylish soft furnishings, bathroom and kitchen area

The one thing that would make the bathroom perfect would be a small heater towel rail. Other than that my apartment is perfect for me

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

I moved into my apartment last April 2020, I could never be happier both with the apartment and fantastic location.

Both the operational manager Kishor, the customer support ambassadors and not forgetting Paul the maintenance manager are truly a wonderful team.
I cannot praise them enough.

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

What a fantastic place and location

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

Any repairs or issues have been dealt with efficiently and promptly

Lovely Aston Place

Review Date Mar 2021

The management is excellent, definitely a reason to decide to move to Aston Place. Extremely helpful with daily activities. One never needs to worry about deliveries as the building has its own safe storage and the concierge to make sure all the parcels are safely received and stored. The building includes communal facilities such i.e. gym and social spaces.

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

Location-wise, nothing beats the location. Lot’s of shops and restaurant in a 5min walking distance. Tram station is literally next to the building. Parking is available with in the building for a monthly fee.

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

Personally I had no good or bad surprises, I was properly informed about all the details before moving in

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

Always in timely manner, kindly and available to accommodate our schedules
