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.

Friendly community. Good local nature

Verified Resident

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.

Great place to live, really

Verified Resident

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.

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.

Not central but really good place to live

Really like that there are two supermarkets on the development and the other shops are close. The area is really quiet and comfortable.

It’s not really close to the centre but transport links are good and everything else makes up for it.

Lovely

Verified Resident

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.

Quiet and Convenient

Apart from the fact that the development is far away from a bus stop, it is very convenient. There is a co-op and tesco’s within close
proximity and a restaurant! We do have a gym as well. It is a safe place to live due to cctv with great facilities. The area is kept clean all the time. My house is good, spacious and bright.

Greenland Place

Verified Resident

I really like my flat. It is modern and spacious. I have never had any issues. We got a nice balcony with a great view of the courtyard that is inside the building.
The development has a concierge which is so helpful, especially for deliveries. Gym is also included which is good, and the bins service is also great.
The building has parking spaces available to purchase, which it would say it is recommended as parking can be tricky around the area if not.
Overall, it is a great development.

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

The area in general is good. There are enough shops and that, but it would good if there were more things around, especially restaurants. The river is nearby which is quite nice.
Most of the time transport is good, but we rely on the jubilee line.

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

I had no surprises when I moved in as I did my research, and because I lived nearby I also got to see the area.

I really liked the courtyard inside the buildings. The development also includes a balcony with a good view. I’ve never experienced any issues so far with the building. The concierge is one of my favourite things for deliveries etc. Also, I like the parking space and recommend having one as parking in the area can be tricky. In addition, the development has bins to dispose waste

Lovely development in a great area

Verified Resident

The neighbours are lovely. I also like there are shops inside the development. And having a concierge is so good.
We also got a gym in the development but I personally don’t use it. We have an amazing yoga studio too.
There are also parking spaces available which is quite good, even though there were a few break ins.
It is also good some of the buildings have internal gardens which is really nice.
The flats are modern and quite spacious. I am very happy with it. I have never had any issues.

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

I have lived here for 8 years and I am really happy with the area. Especially having the river nearby and taking the thames link to work is amazing. And you also got the station nearby what makes it really easy to travel around everywhere.
I love there are also lots of shops, and more keep coming, so everything you need is around. People in the area are also very nice.

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

It is all really good and as I expected it to be. I am very happy overall.
