Calming area

Verified Resident

I chose to live at Enderby Wharf because I moved in with my partner who had bought off plan and thought it was a good opportunity for investment. I have been living here for approximately one year.

There has recently been a changeover of the building management company and it hasn’t been the smoothest of process with the handover. The transition from one to the another has been quite difficult and it hasn’t been efficiently dealt with. The issue mainly has been with communication and changes in procedures. I think this will be smoothed over soon.

We do have a Facebook group for residents which is very neighbourly but also helps us identify and resolve issues that need reporting to management.  There are just a few teething problems at the moment, which I am hoping will be solved by feedback of the team. We are creating a resident’s association in order to be able to smooth things over and to be more in control.

The facilities on the site are great. There are lots of communal gardens, which are very peaceful and tranquil. I would have liked to have an area where we could have barbecues though. There are also building a new garden with a sitting area that will have river views, which I am looking forward to. The gym in general is also great, never too busy.

Although we were pre-warned about the service charge price increasing, the rise was sizeable – but this is in-line with other developments.

We also have a concierge service open 24 hours a day, however because of the transition into a new management company, the concierge is not the smoothest at the moment.

The flat itself is lovely as we have a great river view, which is amazing, especially at night with all the lights and the view towards Canary Wharf. We have two balconies, which we make use of more in the summertime. It can get quite windy, however, as with all riverside developments.

I would say the features of the flat are the same as most Barratt developments, which although they look great, are very smart and it does feel like I am living in a hotel sometimes, I wouldn’t give them a 100% rating for functionality. For example, the drain in the shower looks fantastic, but it is not very practical to clean. In my opinion, they have been designed to be more aesthetically pleasing, and I think the features could be improved.

There have been great steps made in the development to establish a friendly and positive community. Our Facebook group has really drawn us together as neighbours and I have even made some new friends here. There are also often dog parties in some of the gardens.

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

One of my highlights in the area is the pub, The Pelton Arms which has live music regularly with great bands playing every weekend.

There are regular buses, but the nearest Underground station is a 16-minute walk away, which is slightly inconvenient. It is quicker to get the bus, but I don’t always want to because it adds on to my daily costs of commuting and late at night, buses aren’t that regular and walking home isn’t the safest. They also recently closed Tunnel Avenue bus stop, which was a shame because lots of residents used it to get into Central London. I wish there was more public transportation – there will be soon with the clipper stop!

There are nice walks in the area, particularly on the Thames path, which is lovely to walk along and clear your mind, especially in busy London. The river running along the bank side is nice and calming within the Greenwich residents, which is great as it helps the local residents to relax and relief stress. Greenwich Park is also one of the best in London and it is unrivalled in my opinion. There are so many wonderful restaurants as well and for shopping, you don’t really need to go anywhere else because we are a stone’s throw away from shops like Ikea, Sainsburys, Primark, Quikfit and Pets at Home in the shopping retail park, which is either at short drive or bus ride away. I also like taking my nephews to the dome and the cinema, which are not on my door stop but nearby.

A Co-op supermarket also opened up recently nearby to the development only 2-minutes away. The crime rates within this establishment were bad – there were regular thefts by children, but I haven’t heard of this lately so I assume all resolved now.

I think the area itself is quite safe. I do like the sense of community here because as neighbours we always alert each other of anything going on in the development. There is a real neighbourhood watch feel.

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

I wish I had known more about the planned development works within this area, as it would have prepared me for what was to come. I am slightly concerned that the building works will block my lovely view. However, I do think this will bring more shops and community to the area.

Enderby Wharf resident

Great new build apartments in the centre of Greenwich.
The flats although interesting colours on the outside, are modern and well equipped inside. Living in a 3 bed flat there is a lot of room for 3 people with a particularly spacious hallway and living area. There is also a large balcony on these flats that look over the river and Royal Naval College.
Enderby Wharf also has nice garden areas in between the flats which breaks up the area from being too concrete and is child and dog friendly.
The 24 concierge is useful although have had a few issues with missing parcels and staff.
The on site gym although quite basic is great and right on your doorstep and never feels over crowded.

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

I love that the area feels safe. It’s well connected and off of the main road away from noise. Enderby Wharf sits in between the o2 and Cutty Sark which is great for travel and local shops & restaurants.

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

I wish I had known how many new flats were going to be built in the area. Although this is great it means there’s extra pressure of public transport – particularly busses (which there aren’t enough of during rush hours) and the tube, especially if there’s any tube problems.

A new slice of London

Great views, great customer service, access to a great gym. The concierges are mostly fantastic, building problems don’t always get sorted out immediately, particularly in communal areas. The repair team are great and fix problems to a high standard. It is a bit unfortunate that the next development over is still being built (our balcony has had the shell of a building view for our entire two year residency) the view is fine but if you happen to be home during the day it can be very noisy, especially if you want windows/doors open. All in all it is a great place to live and I would recommend.

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

This part of Greenwich is reforming itself, as a tourist hotspot it doesn’t have the luxury of other areas as (I assume) business rents are higher. Trafalgar Road has some great places to eat and there are some gems in the town centre. There are not many night life options in Greenwich itself, other than maybe the o2, which is also imo limited

Cosy, safe and quiet

Its a great place to live here, as its really quiet and has lots of families around with massive green spaces nearby for me to walk my dog. However, the transport links nearby aren’t great, and theres a lack of supermarkets, cafes and restaurants around which is a shame, also the building management can often be slow to respond to any issues you have.

I’d like more transport links around the area in greenwich.

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

I like that its quiet with a lot of families around

I dont like that there isnt enough supermarkets, cafes and restauraunts around

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

I wish id have known about the traffic around and the lack of public transport

The view of the river is unbeatable

Verified Resident

Or flat has 2 balconies, one on each sides, meaning we have plenty if light in the flst and stunning views. The flat itself is spacious, especislly considering the amount of stuff i have!
There is also a fantastic gym, underground garage and 24h concierge service. Facilities here are perfect for me… although a bit jealous that the development next door has a swimming pool!

I chose this development mainly as an investment opportunity. It’s a really up and coming place, so won’t lose money on it, and I can enjoy living here until it comes to selling.

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

I love that it’s right next to the river, I spend a lot of time enjoying the views of it and the surrounding area. While there aren’t manylon restaurants nearby, it is so convenient for the jubilee line, so great places to eat are all less than 30 mins away into town.

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

I had visited the area lots before moving in so knew what to expect.

Convenient with a great view

Its a really great place to live and i have little to complain about, there are a lot of green spaces nearby and the transport links are okay. Theres a nearby construction going on which isn’t great as it can get quite noisy during the day, however that’ll be finished soon.

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

I like the faft that its usually very quiet

I dont like that during the summer time when you open a window the noise comes straight into the flat

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

Theres nothing i can think of, we researched this place a lot before moving

Great development to stay

Verified Resident

On sight gym and we are expecting a pub on the waterfront. The 24 hour concierge is good and helpful. The development is quite spacious and is a good value for money. The gym is very useful and about a minute away from the property.

I chose this development because it is close to Greenwich, which is a really nice area close to London and has that countryside feel to it.

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

Close to shops and bus stop up the road making this a good location.

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

A Ferry tunnel was promised but not sure if that’s still going

4 stars even with terrible management

Verified Resident

Really close to all the Greenwich amenities, shopping, the O2, olde style Greenwich with all the parks and pubs etc. There is a Co-op literally on the doorstep for quick shopping.

The best is a brewery really closely, a fantastic place to hangout and try lots of great beers.

Overall Greenwich is a super beautiful place and we’re really close to everything.

Unfortunately here the building management is a disaster, service is terrible from really unprofessional individuals. This is not just me but everybody that says this. They take personal grudges against people, act very badly and are untrustworthy in relation to parcel collections and rule enforcement and they put zero effort into keeping the paths free of delivery scooters etc. Just very very bad, really.

Even with the very bad concierge etc, its 4 stars for so many positives.

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

Love Greenwich area, it’s like a city with lots to do but with a real community feel.

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

None.

Diverse homely area

Verified Resident

My apartment is beautiful and modern with an open layout. My apartment building itself is situated in the shade so it doesn’t get very hot during the summer. Parking for visitors is amazing because we have an underground parking area. Customer service from the building management is great, the reply quickly with appropriate service.

I would love to have more closest room for my shoes.

Really nice area

I would say my overall opinion on the development is quite positive on the whole. I feel as though the location is in the perfect area, I can commute to work and anywhere local quickly. It is also a quiet area which is good as I have a child.

One negative I would say is that at night, some people leave their windows open and play music which echoes through.

The building management respond pretty quickly, they seem good with issues.

Negatives:

I wish I would known that the service charge goes up every year.
Also, pollution levels are quite high as we are next to blackwall tunnel
