New york loft style apartments, high spec furniture… plus all your bills included!

Review Date Jun 2020

We love the fact that we could just move in, all bills are sorted and the apartment was fully furnished, even down to pictures and a lovely clock on the walls. It takes so much hassle out of moving and living in London and means we have no admin down the line.

We adore the design of Ferrum and it’s apartments – when I’m working from home everyone comments on my ‘cool windows’ and ‘interesting industrial ceiling’. The furniture is all of top spec and quality being from John Lewis, it would cost us thousands to furnish it in a similar style, so we are happy to effectively ‘rent’ this beautiful furniture.

To top this off, the resident & concierge teams are absolutely lovely, and the other facilities we get with the building in the gym, work from home room and lounge rooms not to mention the garden & rooftop!

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

In Wembley Park you’ve got London Designer Outlet, a small Tesco, a small-medium Sainsburys, AND a co-op – all within walking distance of the Tipi properties, so you can’t go wrong food wise. If you drive, there’s an Asda and larger Tesco within driving distance too, plus Ikea if you are brave enough for the crowds. It’s great being near all the restaurants of LDO too.
Living in Zone 2 prior to this it’s taken some getting used to being in North West London, but being in such a fantastic building that we don’t think we’ll ever get again somewhere else, we think is worth it. There is a lack of green space nearby which we do miss, but we’ve found a few walking spots with Fryent Country Park & the Welsh Harp reservoir.

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

Not really!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The internet could be faster, but it could be to do with the amount of people using it in the building during the pandemic.

Living in a nightmare

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

Ferrum has a very nice design and in theory, living there should be an amazing experience. In reality, though, it is a nightmare. The heating and piping system is terrible. We have been living here for 1,5 year and the problems with the above are not still sorted. Very loud noises when the heating turns on and when water pipes are in use happen all day from most of the neighbouring apartments and very frequently during the night. We have been having sleepless nights for many months now and despite hundreds of emails, phone calls and chasing up of all people involved, we are still in square 1. And these noises are not only on our floor but everywhere, and while the contractors are aware of the problems, nothing is moving on.
The apartment is very overpriced for what it offers. Especially during the pandemic, the prices should have decreased as we are not able to use any of the facilities and the virtual events cannot be compared to the actual events that were hapenning before.

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

Wembley Park is a very modern area with most of the amenities needed. Unfortunately, most of the area is owned by Quintain and the prices of the apartments are extremely high for a zone 4 area. It is a project of gentrification and applies to big wallets.

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

All the above problems

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I would move out if I had the time to look for another flat and go through the hassle of the whole process

Dear George,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, I’m so sorry it’s related to a negative experience.

Thank you also for your time yesterday where we discussed the current status of this issue and we have agreed steps to providing you with a solution as quickly as possible – we acknowledge and agree that this intermittent issue has been going on for longer than we deem acceptable for a valued resident and we continue to work closely with our contractors to conclude this once and for all, most importantly to your satisfaction.

In regards to the facilities in Ferrum, as confirmed during our conversation, all facilities are available for your use; internal facilities are bookable for single household use due to Covid restrictions and all external spaces such as the private podium gardens, the dog run and the roof top are all available for residents practicing safe social distancing.

To conclude, we are 100% committed to resolving this issue and will keep in regular contact with you to ensure you are kept well informed on progress as promised, we thank you for your patience and extend our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.

In the meantime, we are always available for you if you have anything else you wish to discuss.

Many thanks,

Russell.

Over priced. Over crowded.

My development is great on the outside. Close to shopping malls, the library and so many other amenities.
It does become over crowded though, which isn’t cool. Because of its location, you find a lot of people from neighbouring areas come here to chill.
Also, the rooms are tiny and tend to be cramped.

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

I love the location.
Proximity to Central London.

I dislike the fact that properties in this area are becoming too expensive, hence over crowded as more people pair up to be able to afford it.

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

Nothing comes to mind.

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

Yes.
They are great at responding and quite helpful too.

Great place to live

Review Date Jun 2020

The development is great, the building has been well thought of and well orchestrated. There are a few improvements that could be done but overall I am very satisfied of the design, facilities and building in general.

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

The area is nice and clean but it sometimes feels like it lacks a soul. Everything is big and shiny but missing those nice small unique places (e.g. our local bakery can sit 200 people). Also, the building is way too close to the train station, the noise is really overwhelming and stressful.

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

I love the flat and the building in general but I thought it would be quieter to be on train station side rather than the street side (where the stadium is). I was wrong. The noise is very annoying.

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

Always very quickly and doing their best to resolve any matter in a timely manner.

The whole warehouse/industrial look is something I’ve always been a fan of. So I fell in love with the building immediately.
Having the concierge on call 24/7 is brilliant and definitely makes you feel safe. The entire staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Always make you feel welcome. So it’s comfortable to go with any little issue you may have.

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

It’s very convenient to have Wembley stadium station right next to the building. Being able to get into central London in 9 minutes is a plus.
You have everything you need for essentials in town. and if you want to spoil yourself, LDO is perfect for that.

Disappointed about the construction directly opposite our building. They are very inconsiderate. Do not stick to working hours. Very loud. If we knew they would be there, we would have asked for a flat the opposite side. It’s very unpleasant.

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

I wish I had known that the construction was happening directly outside my apartment.

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

Very promptly and always trying to help as much as they can.

Hi Amy,

We’re thrilled to hear that you’re loving both Ferrum and local amenities such as the London Designer Outlet!

I love the exposed pipework, tall ceilings and the big windows. The facilities are great – working from home area in particular was amazing during the pre-covid times. The decorations in the lounge are brilliant, always something new to discover. Plus it’s very cool to have no-cable phone chargers all around the lounge.

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

Having Wembley Stadium station 2 minutes away, with trains going into London Marylebone (takes 9 minutes to get there!!) is fantastic. The one annoying thing is that construction site just across the street 🙁

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

That construction site just across from my flat! “The Hill project”. It’s awful, so noisy!

What is the best feature of your home:

Light! Light everywhere. The perks of being in the corner of the building.

The design of the building is lovely and facilities are excellent. We have a garden, rooftop garden (both with barbecues) , gym, social space and working from home space all included. The concierge team are very friendly and if anything in our apartment needs fixing we can notify the team really easily online and they deal with it very quickly.

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

There are plenty of local restaurants and shops – London Designer Outlet is a 2 minute walk away. There are good transport links – a train station which is right outside the building which takes you into Marylebone or out of London. Wembley Park underground station is a 10 minute walk away with both the Jubilee and Metropolitan line running through, Wembley Central underground station is not far away either.

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

The train station outside the building is a bit noisy but the sound proofing keeps most of the noise out. The only problem is when it is hot, once the windows are open you don’t get the benefit of the soundproofing. Only a problem if you live at the back of the building though.

What is the best feature of your home:

I love the convenience of it – it is brand new so everything is in really good condition and if we have any problems the resident team are always really helpful.

The best looking place on a video chat

Verified Resident

Review Date Jun 2020

After seeing the photos of Ferrum on the Tipi website it was love at first sight! the New York style of the apartment was exactly what I wanted and when visiting for a viewing my attachment to the place only grew more! I love the design, though still getting used to the olive green walls, I loved the layout especially having a kitchen that feels like it wasn’t an afterthought which so many other places fail at!

During lockdown I have to make a lot of video calls with clients and colleagues, all have made comments on the swankyness of my home with comments such as “we obviously are paying you too much!” and “You have the best looking place we’ve seen on a video chat!” I’ve had to give many a guided tour that I could film my own MTV Cribs episode.

But the building isn’t the only draw, with the gardens and The View providing the best escapes from the flat at the moment and we can’t wait to throw our first BBQ party soon!

And then there are the people, from the management team to the guys manning the concierge desk all have been great help both while moving in and beyond have really made joining the Tipi community really easy and welcoming

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

While living in Wembley is great and having Wembley Park Station literally rolling out of bed distance which makes getting to work in Soho a 30 min trip great

I love the shops in the area with my favs being both Bread Ahead and the Wembley Park Market and I cant wait to get back to exploring the pop ups within Box Park.

My only negative at the moment about the area is having joined early into it redevelopment we wait with bated breath as to what new and exciting shops will be opening in the currently empty retail units dotted along the streets and hopefully the end of road closures and traffic jams!

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

Always remember to give full location details to any delivery drivers as being a new build Ferrum has been a bit difficult to find for them at times

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

Initially had a small problem controlling the heating in the apartment, was really simple process of getting someone to come round to take a look and fix the problem again always a very professional service

My wife, our cat and I were looking to move to a Tipi home at quite short notice in October 2019. Craig from the Tipi team listened carefully to our hopes and needs, then set us up with a brilliant range of apartments to view. We love living in Ferrum. The concerige staff are always so kind and welcoming. You never miss a delivery thanks to them. The apartment itself has a wonderful view of London and we love our balcony. The fact it’s pet-friendly too makes a huge difference. Thank you Tipi!

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

It’s a brilliant area, safe to walk and cycle around even at night thanks to CCTV and Wembley Park staff. The Wembley Stadium station is a hidden gem taking you direct to Marylebone within minutes.

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

The fact some properties were available either furnished or unfurnished wasn’t clear on the website at the time. No big deal though, we love what we’ve got!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

A one-way system on the ground floor during Covid could be a good way to prevent the virus spreading.

Me and my wife before moving to London we’re very nervous! We had been looking for about 3 years!

And the moment we looking into some of the Tipi homes we knew we would be moving to Wembley but which development?

We ended up picking Ferrum! A New York Loft apartment style, kitted out with a state of the art gym and work at home areas, it sounds to good to be true but it really is incredible!

The view from the roof top is mindblowing and BBQs and garden is so cool!

I just love it!

The building management and property management go above and beyond, I do not have a bad word to say about them!

They are always friendly, always welcoming and thoughtful!

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

I love my home! Living here is so cool! I am minutes away from the tube, shops and some parks!

That’s is just what is around locally!

The apartment it’s self is stunning, I feel safe and well looked after by the team here!

I am so happy!

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