Deptford Foundry is a mixed-use development by Anthology London. The development is set on the site of an old metal foundry, which was built in the 1800s. The development offers more than 300 homes with a mix of private and social housing apartments. It welcomed its first residents at the end of 2018. In addition, Deptford Foundry is in the middle of south-east London’s lively Deptford district. It is close to Deptford and New Cross stations, offering easy access to Greenwich. Prices start from £455,000.
Property management is very poor.
Poor service provided and lack of transparency on the accounts, resulting in high management fees.
Also, there have been many security breaches with bicycles repeteadly stolen.
Tenants and staff are friendly and, in general, very respectful.

No, some of the emails I send to building management remain unanswered.
