Elephant central for the win!

Review Date Aug 2021

Everyone who works for elephant central are fantastic, from the reception staff to the maintenance team! We especially enjoy the exercise classes put on for free by peak performances! The apartment itself is beautiful, it’s quiet, we never hear neighbours. The whole building is spotless always 🙂

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

We absolutely love living in elephant central, the area is amazing, we love elephant park behind our building. Having so much green in central London is such a treat! Shops and restaurants close by also and of course two tube stations!

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

Everyone in the building is super friendly, we have made friends with neighbours!

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

We have called maintenance a couple of times and they have come almost immediately and sorted our problems. When we had an issue with our loo they let us use another apartments toilet!

The apartments themselves can be quite spacious and very modern. There are not very many facilities other than a shared co-working space and an outside space which is used for exercise and dogs. Building management tends to be quite fast to respond most of the time. There are delivery boxes connected to an app which helps to ensure that you never miss a package which is really useful.

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

I love living in Elephant Central, it’s Zone 1 and there is an abundance of transportation whether it be bus, train or underground. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area as well as a post office and a big Sainsburys with more shops coming as the area develops. Currently there is a lot of noise coming from the construction and demolition of the E&C shopping mall but you can hardly hear it when you close your doors and windows in Elephant Central.

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

Always negotiate the price on offer

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

You would call or email them and they tend to respond within 1-2 days and are pretty fast

The entire building design is ultra modern, luxurious and artistic. Facilities are cleaned regularly and very well maintained. Each request I’ve had as a tenant of over 4 years has been met within 48 hours or less.
The furniture and tech that the flat is equipped with is very sleek.

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

Elephant and Castle is getting gentrified as of a late and a lot of new developments have showed up around the area.

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

The Elephant and Castle shopping center renovation project will take quite a bit of time to wrap up

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

Building management has been very fast to respond and always welcomes new suggestions

Really love living here; it’s close to food outlets, the staff are friendly (Sam, Stella and all), they have on site handy staff to deal with any issues and the home is fab. 19th floor living has great views It’s also handy having GYMBOX downstairs.

I was initially apprehensive to live on 19th floor but the great views changed that. It’s also handy to having GYMBOX downstairs so I can rock right into the gym.

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

There’s also a dog community

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

Very attentive, got us a big table to work off and replaced the oven.

The building is new and well maintained, all common space are kept clean and in optimal condition.
The staff is always available and really kind, I lived here alnone for 2 years and their presence was always nice and reassuring. The concierge is a great service and helpful for any needs, the collection of goods from deliveries is really important when you are out of home 14h day like me. The common work area is large and really comfortable, and offer a good home office for any needs. The internal open courtyard is a good escape from home without leaving home, really useful to take a break and also if you got a pet that needs to stay out.
The staff organise events and give always interesting opportunities to meet and find friends

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

Elephant and Castle is full of life, local shop, bars and restaurant .
It is the ideal area for family but also singles or young couples.
Getliving is in the best position since the building face directly to the newest Castle square, with a top access to castle Park gardens where you can relax in the green.
Exit the doorr in 200 meters you can reach the underground and the thames link line, you can exit the door and in 2o minutes arrive at Piccadilly or directly arrive at the major airports with no need for a car.
Buggers Park is close as well and offer a large space for exercise or just to relax watching the birds and the lake

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

The view from the balcony is beautiful, the heating system is really efficient.

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

The management always answer quickly and try to help as far as possible.

The building and property is well-maintained in terms of facilities- it is clean, hygienic, and good security features such as having many doors that can only be unlocked with card access. Building design is good, well-lit staircases, refuse collection points, and automatically lit corridors.

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

Very convenient access to Sainsburys, local restaurants, bars, coffee shops, with good diversity and easily affordable. Traffic noise is loud, and there is occasional anti-social behaviour.

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

Do not move in on a sunday because there is no security desk on the ground floor.

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

They were very helpful and responsive, good follow-up on email.

The property is well managed. The relationships team works actively to get close to the neighbors. The property is well maintained, I really enjoyed the common area, which is regularly cleaned because of the COVID situation. I feel safe living in the area.

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

Get living at Elephant Central is really rear the heart of the area, 5 minutes walk to the train station and the tube, and the area is so well developed. I love the convenience of living here.

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

It would be interesting to know about the occupational composition of the community. i.e how many are students tenants, or office workers etc.

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

They usually responded quickly to residents quires.

Everything is excellent. The flats are well maintained and the furniture in the furnished units is excellent. The flats are modern and highly functional. No complaints at all

The property management team couldn’t be nicer or more efficient. Everything is dealt with very professionally and they always go above and beyond.

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

The area is getting better. Great location for central London and commuting. Lots of interesting shops but nothing that useful. The redevelopment will prove really useful! More nice cafes and restaurants are popping up

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

Potential noise from construction but this kicked off after I moved in

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

Highly efficient. Usually fixed next day. Maintenance team very friendly
