Perfect East End Living

Review Date Feb 2021

We have just recently moved in to Fizzy Poplar. We have been so impressed with the Fizzy team throughout the process. Professional, helpful, and organised at every stage. We couldn’t be happier with the size and quality of the flat. Add the fact pets are no problem, and there is an on-site gym, and it is pretty close to perfect. Highly recommend coming to live at Fizzy Poplar!

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

No large grocery store close to building, only locals.

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

I really don’t have anything to add here. We love everything about it!

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

Yes. We raised a couple of issues when we moved in and they were resolved quickly.

Nice place to live

Review Date Oct 2021

Prompt reply of the property management
Pet friendly is a good idea for me
Home design is comfortable and easily to place furniture
Residence Gym is the most important part of my life
If The number of the lift will be increased , it will be better.

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

Good environment, nice building, quiet and safe place to live

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

I don’t think what I can tell you before you move in. Just take your suitcases, and then you can live

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

Sometimes will be fast, but sometimes not.
I hope it will improve

Good location, property starting to get a bit tired

Verified Resident

Review Date Oct 2021

Building is on the older side of the Fizzy portfolio and is starting to show its age. Communal space a bit tired and damage take a long time to be resolved.
Properties are pet friendly, but there is a charge involved, make sure you are aware of the surcharges. To access the gym, you need to speak to the whole developments concierge to get access, this can be frustrating.
The broadband which is included has been fantastic, no issues with the internet access which having to work from home for so long now is a great relief.
There was a break in to the bike store, security has now been reinforced.

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

Easy links to the city via the DLR and Canary Wharf by foot.
On street parking is very limited by permits on weekday, permits that you cannot apply for due to the building having a car park.
Access to the canals and local parks are good, with Limehouse Cut just across the park.

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

Investigate all surcharges, parking, pets, etc.

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

In the flats repairs are awkward due to the age and parts now being discontinued. The maintenance team who do their best get frustrated at these points as they can’t complete the job.

I’ve been renting with Fizzy Poplar for the last 4 years and had no issues. All questions were answered promptly. The service management company could be better but thats outside of Fizzy scope.
Overall the building is good, apartments are nice and location is convenient for those working in Canary Wharf area. Ability to have a dog is also great.

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

Local area is ok. Development is surrounded by social housing, but is close to transport links and Bartlett Park is just in front. Canary Wharf is 15 minutes on foot.

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

Cannot complain about anything that relates to Fizzy.

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

Fizzy responds quickly to any problems, property management company not so much.

Issues galore

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

We stayed here for 3 months only on a short term basis. We had a ton of issues during this short period of time and not one of them were sorted out easily unfortunately. The property is OK (a bit on the ran down / low quality finishes side) but the service from Fizzy and the management company were really below all of my expectations. If you decide to rent from them please be vigilant. I am not sure if we just got hit by a ‘perfect storm’ of issues or this is their normal business practise and expect everyone to just pay whatever extra cost they throw at them.

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

OK area, good access to the City and Canary Wharf. The immediate surroundings of the development lacks local (dine in) restaurants and pubs.

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

I wish I had known that “faff-free living” as advertised is far from the truth.

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

After spending countless hours of looking into each issue, following up with third parties as well and escalating to Fizzy management we managed to get some sort of an agreement on most of the above issues, but renting should not be this difficult from a landlord that advertises “faff-free living”.

Hi Erika, we are sorry that your Fizzy experience was not as expected – we have had recent staffing changes which impacted handovers. This transition has not been as smooth as it should have been which resulted in some issues with your tenancy.

As you know we are having an ongoing conversation about issues raised as there are some factors unresolved with regards to damage to the lift by people that you employed. This is now in hand with the building management (Encore).

Please feel free to email should you wish to discuss further.

Many Thanks

Good building in a good location! a bit pricy

– it’s a good development overall and Fizzy services are really of a good quality and really helpful.
– there have been few issues with hot water and central heating, which seems to happen on an annual basis. This is probably due to how hot water is managed by the communal area.
– there have been issues with bike storage with at least one bike being stolen
– few issues with lift which seems to happen 2-3 times a year
– windows of the flat face all one side allowing no air circulation. in summer it gets increadibly very hot
– the building bobby provided by Fizzy has always been very helpful in supporting and fixing issues as they arose. Must admit that issues have always being dealt with promptly and within a reasonable timeframe.
– we had to go through the remediation of the ‘cladding’ issue that was discovered in this building. that was not pleasant and quite inconvenient as it happened during the 1st Covid 19 lockdown
– rent has increased regularly and substantially over the years with no real good reason in my view.

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

– local shops are good
– transport links are good and convenient
– average type of people in the area is not really good. I would not fell comfortable in leaving my kid go around alone in the area. there have few cases of anti social behaviours occurring very close to the building with people also being assaulted.
– bin collections sometimes has issues with rubbish accumulating for many days if not even weeks till a really disgusting point, in a couple of occasions only though.
– no traffic noise

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

– I think being aware of the community and type of people leaving in the area is important
– also knowing about how hot the flat gets in summer

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

I would change the way the windows opens. Currently there is so much dust and dirt coming in because of the way they works
I would change the blinders as they are ineffective in protecting the flat from the heat in summer.

The building had a beautiful small private area with some plants and a couple of benches. It is always very well kept and clean. The elevator has broken a couple of times, and the door leading to the ground floor, but Fizzy has been quick in resolving these issues. They did take some time fixing the fire escape door that was not closing, though, but they are now resolving this issue.

The building management has been very responsive always. They have also had some very kind gestures such as treating us with bombs for the bathtub, organising a Halloween contest for dogs, leaving dog and cat treats on the ground floor and organising virtual yoga classes during the lockdown.

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

Open spaces make Fizzy Poplar a perfect place for dog owners. There is a park just crossing the rod, and it has a fenced area (the ‘dog exercise area’) where dogs are allowed to run around without the lead. The only inconvenience about the park is that at night, especially throughout November-January, teenagers light up many fireworks, scaring and stressing dogs.

The park in front of the building is also very good for children, they have just opened a very nice park for kids and some changing rooms for the soccer schools for kids that train here during the weekends.

Another advantage of Fizzy Poplar’s location is that Victoria Park is within a 30-minute walking distance.

There is a food store around the corner that is always very well supplied, and it is also very organised and clean. There is also a dry cleaner and a beauty saloon just beside the shop.

Regarding the convenience and availability of transport, Fizzy Poplar is very well located. The Westferry DLR station is within a 20-minute walk. Bus stops are 8 minutes away.

Regarding living in this street, despite it being alongside a road, there is usually not much traffic, so cars’ noise has not been a problem. There are private security guards that make rounds throughout the day and night. Despite this, there have been some security incidents, albeit infrequent. Since we arrived, there have been 2 stabbing incidents amongst teenagers, but they did not seem to be related to random violence or robbery. We did have an entry into the bike storage inside the parking lot, in which around 4 bikes were stolen. Some things that delivery services have left on the ground floor have been stolen; however, there are 3 signs in the area that explicitly say packages should not be left there.

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

A good thing we didn’t get from our virtual viewing was the enclosed area for dogs. It’s really helpful to be able to have dogs off the lead jumping and playing around without disturbing others.

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

If I had to change one thing of the apartment, that would be the carpets in the master bedrooms; I would change them for a wooden floor, like the rest of the apartment. I would also change the wooden floor in the kitchen for tiles. Both things make it easier to keep each of these spaces clean.

Hi Natalia, thank you for leaving your home this very detailed review. We hope you continue to enjoy living with us,

Great service and location but pricey!

– Design: the flat is gets very hot in Summer because the bedroom and living room face West and there is no air ventilation. However is very nice having a park just in front as we can pop there when we desire it.
If we have domestic issues (boiler, hot water, flush) the Property Manager has always arranged the repair in a promptly and efficient manner.
– Windows: double glazed windows are very soundproofed and they still look new.
– Property Manager: Jeanine seems very nice and approachable. We bumped into her a couple of time even during the lockdown. This was nice and it gives the impression that someone is attending and checking the building.
Overall we are happy to live here, there is plenty of light in the flat and we never had major problems. We would be happy to sign for a long term rental contact!

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

– Local shops, restaurants etc.: plenty of new places opened in the last couple of years. The quality of the services is very good, the range of prices is wide. Above all I really value Poplar Union;
– Transport: well connected to all public transports, the Royal London Hospital is only 15 minutes away (by car)
– Street living: many disruptions in Lindfield during the last couple of years due to undergoing works in Bartlett Park. The traffic-noise is very low. There is anti-social behaviour (drug dealers, baby gangs, garbage scattered outside the bins) but we have never had any troubles to be fair. There are supervisors patrolling the area and this gives a sense of safety. I avoid walking down the streets at night but it would be the same in any other areas of London.
In terms of location it’s great. Next to Canary Wharf, the river and there are nice walking paths

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

Cladding information but a part form that they have been very clear and professional.

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

I would like to have windows on both side of the flat in order to have a proper ventilation.

Building management is the WORST!!!
Everything breaks and it takes them MONTHS to fix it, if ever they do. Safety features like fire doors and fire alarms can be faulty and can take more than 3 months to get them fixed and require regular chasing. The feeling is that no one cares.

* have in mind that good reviews are awarded with 1 month free rent, so don’t be fulled

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

Good things:
– Close proximity to Canary Wharf,
– 10 mins walk to Westferry DLR station
– convenient corner shop just 1 min walk
– close proximity to the park (just across the road)

Bad things:
– high criminal rate (mainly theft)
– rubbish can be seen everywhere (used to be much cleaner)

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

I wish I knew that the quality of the service remained as it was in the beginning.

What is the best feature of your home:

Pets are allowed and it’s a modern building with nice balcony and view!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed with Encore Estates Management, the building management company. Fizzy continues to chase them regularly to get issues resolved in a timely manner. The fire door is and always has been secure however Encore Estates Management are soon due to replace a fitting – this is scheduled imminently. Fizzy runs a monthly ‘Fizzy Dip’ competition where one lucky resident wins one month free rent; one of the amazing perks of living with Fizzy! The winner is randomly picked independently by HomeViews from all valid entries. Please do feel free to get in touch with the team should you wish to discuss anything further. Kind regards, FIZZY Management
