Good quality facilities, I love living here

Verified Resident

It is very nice inside. They have got a rooftop deck, an exercise room, it is a brand new building, the individual units are really well done too . It is very quiet in my flat, all of them have balconies, the concierge is nice and helpful. My living room is my favourite room because it is open and well done.

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

I like that it is convenient to transportation. There are 3 different lines, with very good restaurants and it is pretty vibrant amd funny too. I dislike that it is dirty and loud. It feels unsafe sometimes.

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

Nothing in particular stands into my mind, nothing I can think of.

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

They have been slow about repairing things sometimes. We have had broken appliances and they have been slow when the tenants raise issues.

Modern and well built development

Verified Resident

It is a well built development. In terms of facilities, we have a gym and a terrace. There is a 24/7 concierge service too. All residents we have a facebook page where they can share things and organize events. We have some yoga classes free of charge, in the mornings or/and the evenings. My flat is spacious, really modern, the balcony is huge!

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

it is a nice area with many shops and restaurants. I dislike that there are a lot of homeless people and drug addicts.

there isn’t anything in particular I can think of.

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

There is a lot of noise coming form the street, I wish I could change this.

Modern flat, I love living here

Verified Resident

I like my flat because it is modern. My bedroom is my favourite room because it is big. I would like to have a bigger garden. We have a backside one but it is quite small. We have a nice community and the neighbours are polite.

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

I have witnessed some antisocial behavior around. For example, street fights. Otherwise, it is a generally quiet area, the tube and the bus station are nearby so it is convenient in terms of transport, the connections are good.

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

Nothing that pops into my mind, my family and I researched it well.

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

We had issues in the flat but the management responded promptly.

The finishing can be better, but it is a modern flat

Verified Resident

The finishing can be done better. The building management is okay, they are good in terms of responding. In my flat one of the windows had water coming past, the walls are quite thin and you can hear the neighbours. Other than that, the flat is modern and yet clean.

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

I dislike that there is some antisocial behaviour in the area, mostly drug taking and drug selling. It is well connected with the Tube station and it is central too. Whitechapel and the big Sainsbury’s are best for shopping.

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

I wasn’t fully aware of the quality of the finishing before I have actually moved in. It could be of better standard.

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

I wish I had a bigger bathroom in my flat. Otherwise, it is alright.

Great apartment but not for students!

Verified Resident

The apartment is pretty small but it has been nicely designed. Its aesthically pleasing. However it is not suitable for students because it is so nice and the appliances and doors are easily breakable.

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

We live very close to central which is very convenient. Spitalfields market is also very nearby as well as a tube so the area is well connected. There are plenty restaurants and bars in the area.

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

There’s nothing I wish I had known before moving here
