Well built and well managed property, I am very satisfied. The cleaning is fine, it is all managed by the management company, for instance, the rubbish collection. The amount of cyclists on the canal is a dislike. The flat is well designed, we have a covered balcony and 2 bedrooms, the kitchen is connected with the living room and we have 2 bathrooms.

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

It is a social area, close to amenities , we moved in 7- 8 months ago and so far we haven’t had any problems with the safety. The transport links here are good. We have overground station and both the Jubilee and the Central line to go to Stratford. There is a nursery nearby.

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

I wish I had known about the cyclists and the high traffic on the canal. A lot of people are commuting with high speed. It would be nice to put some barriers to slow them down.

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

They are efficient and have solved any issue we have raised promptly.

Easy access and good location

Review Date Sep 2019

Its well built and well finished well design efficiently to utilise the space ,enough room to live with comfort zone.
In terms of location and amenities the price is reasonable and this is the best development i have ever lived so far.

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

The safety is poor by the river path, management should improve the safety. I am here new but I am happy with facilities and the building.

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

I did lots of research before i move and invest my money in this development and I am happy with my decision.

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

Everything is perfect and I am satifisfied with the flat but if they privide a concierge 24/7 for each single building that would be the best feature of the developmet .

Fish Island Village, E3 – a trendy, diverse community that could one day be the beating heart of Hackney Wick

Fish Island Village, E3 – a trendy, diverse community that could one day be the beating heart of Hackney Wick

Review Date Mar 2018

Fish Island Village is still under construction, but it’s already tipped for big things. It’s a hot contender at this year’s First Time Readers’ Buyer Awards in not one, but two categories – Best Architectural Design 2018 and Best New Development in the South 2018. And it’s easy to see why. In fact, the project is in such high demand, 85% of its first phase has been sold already.

The creators wanted to bring more than just a residential development to the East End, instead opting to introduce a colourful, vivacious community. Fish Island Village is the brainchild of collaborative trio Hill, Peabody Group and The Trampery. Combined, these forward-thinking organisations are committed to developing inventive housing and coworking space across the capital. In other words, spaces for people to live, work and play.

Housed over several buildings are 580 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, some of which will overlook the hive of activity that is Hertford Union Canal. And all of which promise to be high-spec and contemporary. The exteriors have been designed in the same urban, industrial style this corner of London is best known for, with award-winning architects Haworth Tompkins, Lyndon Goode and Pitman Tozer drawing inspiration from the local art studios, galleries and warehouses.

Landscaped areas are kept in tip-top shape by a dedicated maintenance team, and these sit alongside open courtyards and a welcoming main square set aside for community events. Entrepreneurs and creative types will benefit from workspace for 500 individuals. There’ll be a cafe-come-bar onsite, plus a state-of-the-art gym. And a 16-hour-a-day concierge service will make for easy, stress-free living, saving time on dry cleaning errands and package returns.

The village is in Zone 2, just a 10-minute walk from Hackney Wick Station, so residents will be well-connected to the likes of Westfield Stratford City. Meanwhile, the eclectic bars, cafes and pubs of the neighbourhood are right on the doorstep. All apartments come with bicycle storage, plus 53 basement car parking spaces are available at an extra cost.

Prices start from GBP432,500 for a one-bedroom apartment, GBP557,500 for two bedrooms, and GBP690,000 for three. However, with the Help to Buy London scheme onside, buyers could nab one with just a 5% deposit and a 55% mortgage – great news for those looking for something more affordable in a community with its finger well and truly on the pulse.

A true gem for London newcomers like us

Review Date Nov 2018

There’s lots of building work still going on, but you can see what they’re going for. The flats are so cool and modern, and there’s tons going on near to the village (pubs, shops etc).

We’ve been on the lookout for a flat somewhere with a cool and fun community vibe. Fish Island Village really looks like the perfect place for us. We are two cousins recently moved down south from Leeds. Having the tube within walking distance is just a bonus, I work mainly from home but my cousin has to commute everyday.
