Peaceful, calm and connected

I really like the flat as it’s nearby the river, the flat was delivered on time and the construction is really good. I don’t like the nearby bus station and the construction site next to the development isn’t great.

Why did you choose this development?

I chose this development because it’s by the river.

Peaceful and convenient

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.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I’d really like there to be a convenience store added to the area.

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

New building

Verified Resident

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.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

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

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

Its okay

Verified Resident

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.

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

Terribly – they didn’t respond well to my issues , very disappointing

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

Dislike the pollution and noise caused by buses
Iike the sense of community

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

I wish i knew how supportive and friendly the comunity would be

Quiet, convenient and reasonably priced

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.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

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

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

Brentwood is a quiet area

Verified Resident

The apartment we live at is nice and spacious and i’d say its good value for money. I feel safe inside i’m new to the area so this is key for me.. However the area is kinda boring as theres nothing to do.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I wish there was an on site grocery store or even close by. A concierge would also be great.

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

Like that its a clean and quiet so we cant hear other residents
I dislike the noise pollution caused by the planes

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

Theres an airport nearby which i didn’t know about i would’ve thought twice if i knew

Quiet

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.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

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

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

Quiet, spacious and modern

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.

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

They’re been quite good at responding to any issues.

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

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

Great community

My flat is large and spacious, i feel very safe when i’m at home and in surrounding areas. In my opinion i believe i am paying a good value for what i’m receiving.
I would summarise my flat as nice, the floor to ceiling windows are ideal as they let in a lot of light.
The development itself is quite quiet however i’ve still managed to make friends locally because i go to the pub regularly.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I wouldn’t want anything else as i believe the development is right for me.

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

I Dislike that theres train stations local to the building, however i do Like that the community is very present and active.

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

I was well informed when i moved in and received what i was expecting.
