Iconic

Verified Resident

Review Date Apr 2018

Arena Tower is an iconic building on isle of dogs. All apartments are kitted out with top of the range kitchens and bathrooms. They are modern clean and bright. Balconies in the two and three bedroom apartments are all huge giving a serious wow factor and allows residents to have the feel of having their own garden with the security of a tower block. The concierge are friendly and helpful and security is very good. Improvements are going on all the time with a restaurant due to go in at the top of the tower and a residents’ cinema in progress. Free membership at the Nuffield gym is included and the gym is massive and well kitted out. Service fee is also cheaper than many other apartments in the area meaning that although the apartments may seem expensive they are actually great value for money. The location is great, right next to two for stations, a large Asda and just 5-10 minute walk to Canary Wharf. They also have a very good online platform for residents called building link which allows you to manage security, request valet services, connect with other residents and check post.

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

 Renting a car parking space is the way forward – it is far cheaper to rent one (can be done from the concierge or even cheaper from other residents) than to buy one at £35k plus £800 service charge per year.

Arena Tower. Baltimore Tower

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2018

Arena Tower, also known as Baltimore Tower. Part of the Baltimore wharf development by Galliard homes.. The tower was completed in 2017. Designed by SoM, each apartment has an individual balcony which forms the twisty curve structure of the tower. The balcony ring rotates with respect to the core of the tower creating an visual effect when view in different views the tower looks differently. The design of the tower did not follow modern days practice in maximising indoor space by creating square layouts. Nevertheless the twisty structure of the tower stands out from the background of block buildings in Canary Wharf. Adding a sense of uniqueness in the area.

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

Transportation is under huge pressure as more development and more residents in the arena

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

There is no Mcdonlds or KFC.

The bathroom isn’t the best, it tends to mould very quickly. Other then that, the balcony is great the concierge are so helpful when I order packages to the development. One thing I love is the ventilation, the windows open far and wide.

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

Transport is really nice and I really enjoy the view I have of the area

The bathroom design and the concierge are very nice.

Huge balconies

Review Date Mar 2018

We are moving into a two bed apartment soon and I can’t wait. I have rented in the area before and love the location but when viewing in Arena Tower it really offers a wow factor that you can’t compare. For us it is the huuuge balcony which no other development can compete with as well as having a pool on site which we don’t have in my current place.

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

views are even better when directly West facing, balconies are even larger as well believe it or not! The apartment North facing directly overlook commercial buildings air conditioning units

Very spacious apartments in Baltimore Wharf, both the two beds and the studio are very spacious. The properties face the dock so in summer ventilation isn’t great. However the property is great value for money and the 24 hour concierge is great also

Community is great, jubilee and dlr is nearby which is very convenient and a 24 hour Asda is great.

Gym is great, sometimes a bit busy but that’s for sure the best thing.
