London living at its finest!

Review Date Feb 2021

Love the courtyard area. It feels very secure. The development is close to the water, you have the luxury of London living without the craziness that London brings.
I instantly felt at home when I moved into this property and anyone who visits falls in love with it also.

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

The area is by the water and it’s so calming

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

I wish I had known how close the property is to the Thames. This was a wonderful surprise

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

Parking allocation- as one bedrooms to not get allocated spaces

Nice architecture. Design of the building was made with thought for the people. 2 bedrooms, with 2 bathrooms. Good living room and good size kitchen. And something important, a balcony! The design of the rooms are done thinking of how the people can use the space in there.

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

Close to central London. Good transport links

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

I was living close to the property and I wanted to live in it.

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

In fast and the best possible way. Always available to deal with our problem. Gladly they are not many.

Development looks pretty however it lacks final touches to be done well. Overall design of flats is nice, I wish there was a choice between Bath and shower! Not the bath in very 1 bed! Some people
Perfect taking shower from Bath. No issue with development management so far.

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

Great to be close to river, nice for evening walks and runs. Good as it’s quiet, very slow local shop. Many places to shop in the area from big Tesco, Asda to dreams , B&Q and TK max. Literally everything here.

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

No sunlight coming to our house. Only higher flats are getting sunshine daily( especially in winter when sun is pretty low). Many flats are really dark here.

What is the best feature of your home:

Big loving room, very spacious plus nice and big balcony.

A very secure development with large bike sheds and parking in the basement. The properties themselves have large balconies and smeg appliances. Hot water is supplied from a central heating plant in the building from EON. No need to worry about the boiler!

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

A new build located right next to the DLR. very helpful concierge staff. Co-op just opened at the front of the building with everything stocked.

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

A great community feel to the building. Neighbours are all friendly.

What is the best feature of your home:

The balcony and the large balcony windows. Lots of natural light.

Review Date Nov 2020

This is a much smaller development than many others with only 11 floors and less properties than you’d expect from a building of this footprint. The properties have been designed with large windows in every room to make the most of the location and light. The properties are well finished with ample space and high specification bathrooms and kitchen white goods. The property benefits from a concierge which is reassuring from a security aspect but also useful as they can accept post in your absence. There is a secure cycle store on the lower level.

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

It’s a new area and is rapidly developing. Beckton and Gallions Reach shopping centre are only a 20 minute walk and both easily accessible and there is a new Co-op opening in the building which will be convenient. Very convenient location with Canary Wharf only 15 minutes away on the DLR and easy connections onward to Central London through the Jubilee line at Canning Town. The Docks area stretches past Royal Albert Wharf to Excel and is pedestrianised and makes for a pleasant walk or cycle.

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

I would be interested to know the plans to entice more shops and restaurants to the immediate area. Whilst there are good restaurants within a 20 minute journey it would be great to see more closer to home.

What is the best feature of your home:

Whilst so close to transport links and London city airport the property is incredibly quiet and makes the best use of space and light.

Really love the large windows in all the rooms, there’s plenty of light and very low noise considering the buildings location. Concierge staff is extremely polite and helpful. High quality appliances and room sizes are very good. There aren’t any balconies but this just opens up the lounge and makes it look very spacious. We like the neutral white colour as we can modify our colour schemes very easily. I personally don’t like the main door’s colour, grey, and white washed walls, would have preferred a darker door colour to give it a more premium look but it’s definitely not a big issue. Overall, really happy with the place and the development.

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

Coop opening in the building which will be really helpful and there’s a Tesco Extra, Sainsbury’s and Asda nearby. Gallions Reach DLR is right on the doorstep and direct train to Custom House for Cross Rail.

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

Really difficult to find parking for guests.

What is the best feature of your home:

We love the view of the London skyline. It’s a bit far, as the crow flies, from Central London but it still looks beautiful and the night time view is amazing.

Amazing views of the River Thames from balcony. Modern design, spacious, quiet and concierge store parcels. Excellent value for money. Good investment opportunity in up and coming area. Rarely need to use heating in winter months. Also get welcome hamper from developer. Minor dislikes: can on rare occasion smell nearby sewerage and part of development still being built and cannot yet use private residents lounge. Can get very hot in flat in summer.

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

Up and coming. Excellent links to Canary Wharf (approx 20 mins) and London City Airport (DLR is on doorstep as are bus stops) and Crossrail will shorten the journey time even more. Good sized Cooperative at bottom of development. British gastropub Galyons Bar & Kitchen 5 min walk away. Excellent off road cycle route along the River Thames around the corner. More residential feel that other parts of London. Dislike: building works.

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

I wish I would have known that there is a great off road cycle route along the River Thames nearby.

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

I wouldn’t change anything other than having more space (but flat is very spacious already).

Design is good including the parking, concierge, courtyard, build in items. The sufficient windows and doors to allow lighting. The build in items including the kitchen and bathroom remodel good. The thoughtfulness of including USB charging points is good. Some aspects could be better ie the way the door opens could be thought about better, the main door opens into the door to the living room, making it awkward.

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

Transport link is excellent with Gallions Reach DLR at the doorstep. However no shops/restaurants at the area yet.

What is the best feature of your home:

Number of windows and doors, the built in items, the views of Canary Wharf during sunset is nice.

Review Date Nov 2020

This is a really nice, well designed development. Communal areas are clean and tidy and the shared courtyard is well maintained. The concierge and developer team are quick to respond to queries or issues, and although I haven’t had my snagging visit completed yet due to another lockdown, I have high hopes the snags will be readily resolved (eg, some finishes around the skirting boards, bathroom fan doesn’t work). When I’ve had cause to request emergency callout due to plumbing issues, this has been quickly taken care of.

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

The area is well connected with the DLR on our doorstep and frequent buses. The Elizabeth Line will also be nearby when it opens. City Airport is very close which I use frequently for domestic flights. Supermarkets and retail parks are both in the vicinity, and in the next week or so we’ll have a Co-op store in the building which will be very handy. There is also a really nice pub just over the road.

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

The only downside I have noted so far is that, due to my flat being courtyard-facing, I don’t get a huge amount of daylight. I’d recommend assessing this for yourself if you’re viewing properties here, as I imagine it varies quite a bit in each building. I viewed the property in the middle of the day in Summer, so mid afternoon in Winter is quite a bit dimmer!

What is the best feature of your home:

The flat is finished to a high standard with quality fixtures and fittings, and appliances. My balcony is really spacious and will be a nice addition in the warmer months.
The development is secure, and I feel safe living here.

Lovely new build development with lots of secure bike storage and generally Each apartment has a big balcony.
The building and property management are great, very responsive even during lockdown, whenever I’ve had a question or issue they’ve been very quick to reply to me and help get things sorted.

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

Literally walk out of the development onto the DLR, short journey to Canning Town to switch to the jubilee line and with the Elizabeth line opening soon the transport links will be even better. There are a few new developments in the area and neighbourhood is lovely next to the river and Beckton park. Lots of shops nearby. Only complaint would be there aren’t many gyms or restaurants (also only JustEat and UberEats)

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

Before I moved in I wish I knew that the DLR trains can still be quite noisy at night (albeit not 24hrs)

What is the best feature of your home:

I think what I like best about my new home is the modern feel.

The flats have high ceilings and underfloor heating throughout. I love the fact that there are no radiators. Kitchen appliances are of very good quality. The bedroom is fitted with a spacious sliding wardrobe which helps with storage. The 24/7 concierge service is very handy and always happy to help.

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

The development benefits from excellent transport links. It is right next door to Gallions Reach DLR and City Airport is just a few stops away. The Elizabeth Line is also opening in the next few months. The Co-op supermarket is due to open downstairs which is very convenient.

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

It’s a shame that one the windows does not open fully.

What is the best feature of your home:

I have amazing views of Canary Wharf and City Airport. This was the main selling point for me. My place is south west facing so I get a lot of light on a sunny day and beautiful sunsets.
