Terrible

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2022

See above, the service was incredibly disappointing. My friend had to stay in a hotel because the staff were so incompetent and unwilling to help. I would not recommend that anyone lives here, they are unaccommodating and rude and I think that this is the worst management I have ever seen

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

I was furious with the concierge, he ended up leaving my friend to sleep on the street and would not even let him into the lobby. Avoid this place, management is terrible

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

How bad they were

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

They are the worst management ever, they have no concept of pragmatism. I advise everyone to stay away from here

Good transport links

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

I would say the view from the property is the top attraction of my flat. The design is spacious and lets in a lot of light. The building itself has great facilities and is in a convenient location with excellent transport links nearby. However, in terms of value of the property I think that the service charge is too high.

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

The area has excellent transport links which makes it a very convenient location.

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

There is nothing that I wish I knew before moving in.

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

One thing I would change is having flooring rather than carpet.

Vibrant area and lovely flat

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

Better soundproofing would be nice, but otherwise it’s a lovely flat. It is well insulated, so always warm, and has air con when that’s too much. It’s well lit, but I imagine floors lower than mine (floor 6) would get more shade from the surrounding buildings…

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

Like of things going on nearby, vibrant and nice atmosphere.
Can be a bit noisy though.

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

Underestimated service charge is the main thing, it’s more than expected…

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

They have a lounge on the first floor, which I have never seen used. I would love for it to be turned into a screening room for films etc

The development is really nice and well kept. The building management are also very useful and nice when referring problems onto them. I didn’t like the view of my previous property but this new view is great. The kitchen/ dining area of my property allows my to invite people over and host them.

I do like the shops and restaurants around but little is an increasing problem in the area.

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

Nothing at all

What is the best feature of your home:

View is the best feathered of my home, can see all across shoreditch.

Very disappointing, has potential

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2019

Modern building is nice, and my flat has a decent space inside. It’s location is good, being so close to the station. It is also great that it has air con and a balcony, can be hard to find these feature in London. The management is good at communicating with residents, and ensures the bins are always collected.
BUT dreadful concierge, won’t hold food or keys for you… they only do parcels.

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

While the area is is fantastically diverse, and has so many independent businesses and good nightlife, the area has A LOT of drawbacks. It is very noisy (especially at night), it’s quite dirty and grubby, often has broken glass in the street, frequently damage to parked cars, and it’s not the safest place

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

Concierge service has too much power, dictating what they will and won’t d0, and placing unnecessary restrictions. Also not enough car park spaces, and no guest spaces.
Expensive bills too…

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

Don’t use the conciege as much now, they have really come up short

The property is light and spacious and I particularly like the floor to ceiling windows of the design. The concierge service is excellent and a good feature of the business. One downside is that the area can be very loud especially at night.

The area is what I was looking for when moving to an area. I especially like the choice of bars and restaurants.

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

There is nothing that I wish I knew before moving in.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature is the light and the floor to ceiling windows.

A closer gym would be nice even though there are gyms in the area.

Slightly disappointed, but still nice

Review Date Aug 2019

All the glass means I feel really exposed in my own flat. Don’t like how people can see into my home. Nevertheless, the view is stunning, and the flat had a beautiful kitchen. It also has a really helpful and kind concierge service.

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

Really inconvenient, while it is close to Shoreditch high street, you have to walk to Liverpool Street station to get anywhere at all! It is also very noisy at night, a lot of emergency sirens going past…
But saying that its actually really great area, love how much there is to do around here.

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

Great in general but slightly disappointed if I am totally honest…

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

The glass wall which really feels like people can see inside
