Lovely

The concierge team is lovely and very helpful. They work 24hours. We also got cctv which is good. There were a couple of incidents with people breaking into the parking area, though.
The buildings got a courtyard which is lovely, and I am also lucky t have a roof terrace.
I would say the facilities are all well-maintained. We got a yoga studio which I haven’t tried yet, and a gym which is quite basic but good. It is also really nice having shops in the development too, as they give some life to it.
The flat is also nice and the size is not bad. It was really good we could choose a lot of the things in the flat as we purchased while still getting built.
Overall I am really happy with the development.

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

Transport could be improved. For example with the 199 it only comes every 10minutes and in the morning they tend not to stop if too full. It os a 15 minute walk to Canada Water what is alright. The tube is fine. We got the junilee line which is great.
I like the scenery of the area. It is really nice. We got shops and nice cafes around. I also feel it is quite safe although there have been few issues.

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

I would say I knew everything before moving in here.

The building is very nice. It is good quality.
The flat is modern and spacious. It os also pet friendly which is great. I am happy to be on the quiet side of the building as I cannot hear deliveries coming and all that. It is also lovely the sun hits my flat from midday till late.
I love we got good shops in here which is great and really practical.
I haven’t had any big issues. However, there had been a few complaints about the development owner not being great with their treatment towards tenants.

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

The area is really good. I like we got good shops. For traveling around it is quite good, but it depends on the fime of the day. In the morning especially the junilee line and the buses are a bit too packed which is not the best. But it is good being close to the station.
It is lovely living by river Thames. There are many green spaces too, and it’s great dor going for walks and taking my dog.
I just wish they moved on with market plan with surrey quays shop centre, to build new town centre quicker as it will improve the area.

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

There are too many new flats so the jubilee line is getting too packed.

Windows don’t open very wide which causes problems

Nice development

Review Date Jul 2019

I like that inside the development it is very quiet, even quieter than the surroundings.
I love that it is very green in here as well. It creates a very nice environment.
There area good shops in here too, as the co-op, and even more seem to be coming, so I think it is improving.
We also got a concierge which is quite good, and I have never had any issues.
The building also has lots of parking spaces which is good to know, but i personally I’ve never used it.
Inside the flat it is quite nice. I would say it looks modern. It
could be improved but it is okay for rent. I also got a balcony with a nice view, even rhough the size could be better.

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

I am very happy with the area. It is quiet and safe. I would say it is also really family friendly.
Transport in the area is good too. The station is about a 15 minute walk away, and there is a bus round the corner too.
There are also shops around what makes it easy to get everything tou need nearby. I would say it’s a nice area overall.

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

There were no surprises when I moved in as I did my research.

Happy at Greenland Place

Review Date May 2020

The development is excellent value for money (based on the service change) given that there’s a really good gym, concierge, the common areas are maintained to a good standard. Sometimes you can hear the neighbors but generally it’s well soundproof.

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

Plenty of shops, big and small (Lidl, Tesco local and metro, co-op), nice restaurants, amazing walks around the docks, the Thames and the nearby parks. the city, central London and Canary Wharf are 15-30 min away by tube. There are a few nurseries nearby as well as good schools. Security wise I’ve heard people complain. I’ve never had problems myself but I’ve heard from neighbours reports of snatched phones, stolen balcony property etc.

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

The nurseries are quite expensive. But we generally had little knowledge about that lol

What is the best feature of your home:

The community and the local amenities are great for people looking for a calm and family friendly neighbourhood

I greatly enjoy living in this development for the most part. The concierge is very kind and helpful. Most of the time the noise levels are kept to a minimum. The local cafes are extremely yummy and filled with friendly employees. The outside areas are great to lay around in and for children to play in.

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

Like-local shops and cafes, very quiet and family friendly
Dislike- far from station

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

The neighbors are generally friendly and quiet.

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

They generally take a long time to respond and send someone out. We have to call a few times.

The buildings are all new built so it is great. It all feels very modern and fresh.
The flats are really nice too. The only issue is it can sometimes get really noisy as the walls are quite thin.
I really like we got good shops in the development. The co-op was a great improvement.
Personally I have never had any management issues, although I have heard about others.

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

I really like area a lot. There are good shops and it feels really safe. The only thing is it is a bit far from transport, as it is like a 10 or 15minute walk to the station.

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

Everything was pretty much what I expected so there were no surprises when I moved in.

Generally a nice place to live.

Friendly community. Beautiful nature with it being right next to the river and with good parks in the local area.

Not enough shops and it is a bit far to the tube station.

Amenities on doorstep. Good transport links, overground and underground. Shops, big Tesco, restaurants. Good walks with the river right there.

Nothing serious but one or two instances of crime. Concierge keeps us informed and security is good and has stepped up.

Building management is good, obviously nothing perfect but no complaints.
