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

Good but no shops around

I like it here because it’s easy to take my children to school… Keri Hardie is just in front of my house. The area is good because I like it but honestly there are NO shops around. Also, maintenance is very bad…

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

Maintenance is bad.. Good local community

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

I don’t really feel safe here

Average service but happy with final property.

Verified Resident

The development is in a good location for transport links and the local area is beginning to be rejuvenated.The building itself has a good finish but the appliances that were included are fairly budget.
The developer was fairly inefficient dealing with queries and focussed on making sales over customer service. It would often take a long time to get a response. There were also issues when snags were found after completion including major concerns such as no heating for several weeks.
The development is now run by a service company who are again inefficient and problems are no resolved for weeks.

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

The location is great for transport links and has a local high st for shops and restaurants. However, it is missing a large supermarket or upmarket bars/clubs.

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

I probably would suggest a professional snag inspection as we found a lot of issues later in the process that you would not notice on a first look around.

A purpose-built neighbourhood in blossoming Canning Town

East City Point is a huge, multi-billion-pound joint venture from Countryside Properties, the London Borough of Newham and Clarion Housing Group. Designed to deliver a thriving new neighbourhood in the Canning Town area, the project encompasses 649 modern homes, a primary school and a myriad of landscaped pathways and squares. Lots of eco-friendly features, such as double glazing and solar panels, give the place points, too.

East City Point homes have been designed to suit all life stages and backgrounds. There are apartments and penthouses, townhouses and ‘uberhauses’ – a concept from Countryside that gives residents more in the way of space and luxury. So, whether you’re a professional drawn by the area’s proximity to Canary Wharf, or a family lured by the green space and onsite school, you’re sure to find a layout to suit.

All homes come with either a balcony, terrace or garden, and feature modern interiors that vary depending on the collection or block you’re in. Expect soft, muted colour palettes, sleek fitted kitchens and bathrooms that are neatly tiled. Help to Buy and Shared Ownership schemes were in full swing throughout the phased launches.

East City Point benefits from brilliant transport links. It’s less than a 15-minute walk from Canning Town tube and the Jubilee line, which means Canary Wharf is just five minutes away, while Central London is 15. You can also catch DLR trains from here to well-linked Stratford International. Once Crossrail launches at close-by Custom House, East City Point residents will be even better connected, reaching hubs like the West End quickly and easily. Road connections are just as impressive, with the M11, M25 and A13 all nearby. Plus, London City Airport is less than a 10-minute taxi ride away.

Nice place

Verified Resident

Nice development. The builder was good when I was buying it and the quaility is high. The management company keep it in a good condition and the service charge is high but good value for money for what you get from it. The residents are mostly young professionals with a few young families….and some housing association tenants.

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

Up and coming area. Basic amenities (food shops, take aways) are fine. Fantastic transport links.

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

Cross rail is going to be really, really close.
