The apartment is large and spacious and i do feel safe inside
However i don’t think its good value for money as it is more expensive than private apartments
Also the security door outside doesn’t work often. The area isn’t well lit so i don’t think women will feel safe at night.

Quiet

Review Date Aug 2019

The area around here is pretty quiet, which is nice, the nearby construction doesn’t bother me, and the nearby bus station and the flight path is silenced out by the windows which are really effective at blocking out the noise.

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

I like that it’s quiet around here despite the flight path

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

There’s nothing I can thing of at the minute! It’s nice here

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

I wish when I’d movedo in that the flat was already furnished

I’ve just moved in here, and it’s been great so far. I think the design of the building is great, and I love the fact that I can afford this place on my own. The only thing I’m not so keen on is the fact that there are only limited broadband service that work in the building.

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

I like that it’s can afford it on my own, and it’s so close to my work

I don’t like the fact that the building isn’t wired up for different broadbands

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

There’s nothing id wish I’d have known before moving in

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

I do wish there was a cinema nearby, as the nearest is in fulham

The house is large and modern and I feel safe. I really do feel safe in this building. My favourite thing about my apartment is the massive windows – we get a lot of sunshine.
View is alright depending on which side you’re at.

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

Quiet area
No parking – only a few bays for the number of houses there are

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

Nothing

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

It would be great to have a gym in the building so i can use it whenever

I’ve just moved in and so far it’s a good place to live, I’m liking Brentford and I think that the design of the flat and the building are nice. It’s a really peaceful area however two things that are a little inconvenient are the flight path near us and the bus station.

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

I like the fact that Brentford is in the middle of regeneration, so it’s quite exciting, but that means it hasn’t quite begun yet

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

I wish I’d known more about the transport links around

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

Id really like there to be a conveniece store added to the area

Design Flaw

Review Date Apr 2020

I really enjoy living at BLW. I think the design and finish of the building is very good.
One design aspect I don’t like are the pillars on the top floor balcony- they only seem to have these on some of the balconies and not others so it’s clearly only for aesthetic and it blocks sun for a big portion of the day.

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

I enjoy Brentford as a whole, there are many pubs and these are varying so cater to different people.
I have recently got to know the walks along the canal which are lovely- as are the walks along the river

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

The sales team at BLW are brilliant, they were ever so helpful.

What is the best feature of your home:

I absolutely love the large windows! it’s a fabulous feature although does get very hot in the summer!

It’s nice living here – the canal nearby is super nice, and it’s a great flat as it’s really spacious inside. I’m not super keen on how little transport links there are here, and the fact that there are so little shops around here.

I like the canal nearby

I don’t like that it’s not very accessible

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

There’s nothing I can think of, I feel like I knew everything before I moved in

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

They’re been quite good at responding to any issues
