The flats are Resonable sized and very modern.
I feel very safe, as there is a 24 hr security team and you also you need a key fob to enter.
There is a 24hr concierge and a communal gardens.
However the development is not community based.

The nicest area

Verified Resident

The garden is kept clean and the fountain is clean and beautiful with lots of restaurants such as pizza union which is close and cheap. Sometimes I would like more social things here although the neighbours are nice.

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

I really like the garden as its very nice. I sometimes dislike how sterile the area can be

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

There is a really nice cheap filipino restaurant very close

Modern, Clean Complex in a Convenient Location

First of all the concierge reception team are great, they are on hand 24/7 and respond quickly to helping resolve issues including deliveries, handling kids hanging around the property and general inquiries. The location is great it has surrounding train stations (aldgate east) a cinema, sainsburys, bars, restaurants all within a 1 minute walk if that! the building is very modern with glass balconies and a light grey exterior. The courtyard has a lovely water feature in the centre with pathways surrounding it. The actual apartment itself is very well kept and a modern design. I feel safe in this environment however we do get kids at night that are very loud and deal drugs. Also we get a lot of delivery drivers racing down the walkway nearly knocking people over- very dangerous! Overall i recommend city quarter as it is a beautiful london home.

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

I like the aesthetics of the building as it is super new and modern, it is very localised and the area is beautiful. i dislike the group of antisocial teenagers that do drugs outside our building at night.

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

There is nothing in particular that I wish I knew beforehand. I am more than impressed with my choice of property. There was nothing hidden from me when I moved in, it has exceeded my expectations!

Good location, average transport

The area is quite quiet and I also have a private communal park for residents. It is quite quiet and there are not many cars, it is child friendly.
Security is quite good . Concierge facilites are good.
Nursery located also near.

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

I like the fact there is not many cars, so it is safe for kids. However i do not like the fact there are not many buses.

Landlord is not as helpful as he possibly could be.

loved it for 12 years

Verified Resident

There are like 5 stations and overground within walking distance, you can walk to most places and its a nice walk along the river, You can get into tower of London for 1 pound because you are a resident of tower hamlets.
Theres so much character about the area as it have life and its near both modern and old stuff.
I also dislike the groups of young people that are anti social and lurk here sometimes and they don’t live here and are very loud and they spit.

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

I love the location as its ideal and the walkway is beautiful but busy
I dislike how the delivery drivers can speed through the walkway and theres no support by Berkeley.
Shared ownership gets treated differently also compared to private tenants. The managing team can ignore you. Theres a bit of drug dealing that happens near this area too from young people and its a bit obvious.

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

I’ve lived here before any of the any things was built, but i wish i knew living on the ground floor they would put taller trees to give me more privacy

Can be noisy sometimes when people cross by but quiet inside.

Not really theres nothing i didn’t know, everything is as expected.
