Experience of living in a prison at a high price point

Concierge is tyrannous and acts like prison wardens. They have really weird and obscure rules that you can’t negotiate and you’re treated like a child at your own home. Take this for example: you can’t have a doormat at your doorstep. If they find one they dispose it off. Where in the world are you not allowed to have a doormat? Let me answer that for you: Prisons!!

I had to subscribe to a health food delivery service which leaves food at the door step at 3am in the night. Same issue. I have to stay awake every night due to this issue.

On another occasion, I ordered a perfume from Amazon. The concierge accept deliveries here. The box was open and had no perfume in it. Either the concierge was stupid enough to accept an open and empty box as a delivery or they are thieves.

Please review the location of this development:

Good apartments. Absolutely tyrannous concierge…

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

That the concierge is unreasonable and doesn’t let you operate reasonably.

Fantastic base while I’m in London

I’ve viewed several properties in the area, and Baltimore Wharf surpassed my expectations greatly. Fabulous reception area, outdoor courtyard etc. and a fitness centre and spa that’s better equipped than any others I’ve seen in a residential format. The apartment was high standard, minimalist and large so up my alley.

Arena Tower. Baltimore Tower

Verified Resident

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 review the location of this development:

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.

Iconic

Verified Resident

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.

Elle Hammond Property Pro

A premium gateway to the elite, E14 lifestyle

This exclusive development from Ballymore and Galliard Homes is made up of one, two and three-bedroom apartments. Spread over two levels (15 and 16) they’re luxury boltholes housed in an attractive, curved building that’s minutes from central Canary Wharf. The property benefits from a frame of landscaped, communal gardens. Follow them west, and you’ll reach the Millwall Inner Dock promenade and waterside.

Each home boasts either a balcony or terrace, or an amalgamation of the two, all of which offer up fantastic views. Depending on the apartment positioning, residents’ vistas span the River Thames and the Greenwich Peninsula.

Interiors here are top of the range. Think bright-white matte wall finishes, polished natural oak-wood, and touches of stainless steel and chrome. The kitchens have been dreamt up by renowned Belgravia-based designer Rabih Hage, and come with Smeg appliances. Bedrooms, meanwhile, feature cookie-coloured carpets and floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes. Additional luxuries include mood-lighting, surround sound and wall-hung iPod docking stations.

Access to ‘The Club’ is included for residents. Impressively, this is set to be London’s largest residential gym and leisure facility. It’s still in the works at the moment, but when it’s finished, it’ll comprise of a state-of-the-art gym, a basketball court, and dedicated areas for boxing and climbing, as well as a 25-metre-long swimming pool. A sauna, spa pool, steam room and ice fountain also get in on the act, making relaxing after a long day a doddle.

The property is within easy walking distance of the Crossharbour DLR and Canary Wharf stations, so residents are well-placed to make the most of the capital, be it shopping on Bond Street, taking in a show in the West End, or catching a flight from London City Airport. It’s all at your fingertips at Baltimore Wharf.

Huge balconies

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

There’s even a basketball court on site

If you work in Canary Wharf and want a kitted-out building to come home to after a long day at the office, Arena Tower’s a good (though slightly pricey) choice. It’s certainly not short of sports and leisure facilities… there’s even a basketball court on site. Downside is the apartments don’t have the designer finish that other developments in the area have. Needs a bit of money and a lot of imagination.
