Good but expensive

The design of my flat is very nice, although it’s not very big.. I like the outside of the building , the greenery is pretty and it’s kept well and clean. I am quite disappointed with security, there could be more CCTV around and monitoring .it is very expensive too

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

Noise from the airport is bad.. great design

Nice building

Verified Resident

The Building is big and beautiful. It also achieved a reward for its design. The backside is also stunning. However, even if the area is changing a lot this place is rough.. so many issues with security.

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

Security is bad.. and location is far from central London

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

Nothing in particular

Moved here today and happy

I have just moved here today! I like my flat, it’s spacious, modern, it’s close to the station and I have to travel to Essex everyday so it’s perfect for me. I don’t know much about the area but for now I really like it.

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

It looks like if there aren’t many shops around but I like the surroundings for now

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

I still don’t know much about the monthly fees!

Love it!

Even if the park in the development is never clean.. I would say disgusting… I really like leaving here. I was grown in Canning Town and I feel like it’s getting better and better. I live in this new development and I like my flat, the design is okay.. and it’s easy to take my kids to school

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

School is close… but there are no shops around

Maintenance could improve

Still a lot of issues but it improved

Verified Resident

I have lived here for 25 years and I must say that the area was terrible decades ago. It’s surprising to think how much it improved and got better now. I live here and I also manage both the school and the new development and I know that there are several issues. But at the same time we got a new school, brand new buildings.. I am glad to see improvements over the years.

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

It’s nice but it’s still E16… and the crime rate is seriously high.

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

Nothing

Lots of maintenance issues

Since the buildings are new, there were a lot of issues with flooding, pipe work, heating and maintenance. Also, I never had issues before but I feel like the area could be safer, a lot of my neighbours say it’s not. However transportation links are good

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

Shops could improve.. there aren’t many around. Good transport

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

So many issues with maintenance…..

Nice building and location

Verified Resident

Living here is nice… I had a few issues with the maintenance , I was always satisfied with it. My flat is good , modern, big… Even the area is nice and the community is friendly. The only bad thing on which I would complain is the road here nearby, it’s very noisy and loud.. also, London city airport is close and sometimes I feel like if I was in a terminal!

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

Noise coming from airport is annoying
I like this community

Nice neighbourhood

I like the fact that we are a big and mixed community. Me and my sister have a lot of friend coming from different races here and it’s very fun, they’re all very friendly. Transport is okay but sometimes if you’re late you must take the cab… Canning Town station is quite far. My flat is alright.

Very nice people no shops

Diverse area

Canning Town has changed a lot because of our developments. And they’re still constructing a lot…. what I like from here is the diversity of the people, a lot of mixed races live here and for me it’s something very nice

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

Diversity of ethnicities is something good. There aren’t any shops around

We had issues with maintenance.. could be better

Happy with my modern flat but expensive

Verified Resident

The area around the development is very big but it’s so nice that we all know each other! It’s like a big family.. and my neighbours are all friendly and nice. I know that Canning Town is dangerous but I have always felt safe.. And I’ve lived here for 8 years? Compared to the one before, this new flat is SO much better …it’s expensive but it’s worth paying more for this

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

I love the neighbourhood. But there aren’t many shops around

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

I didn’t know there was a school… and it’s very noisy

Improvements

I used to live here before and the area got so much better. The new development and school are giving life to Canning Town.. our flat is spacious and I can’t really complain. However, we need transport. Transportation links are terrible.. the jubilee line is almost 20 minutes away from here and buses are not good to move around London because of the traffic

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

Transport is bad. Lack of shops

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

I am just happy and satisfied with the location because it’s very convenient for the school
