Great place

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2019

I would say that my apartment is very modern. The entrance is next to a main road. There is a concierge that is mostly open 24 hours. The place is very close to a local sainsburys which makes shopping easy. My apartment had brand new everything and looked like a showroom when I moved in.

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

I like that it is close to my university and very close to major transport links. I would like for there to be less noise from the train.

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

Far to walk to entrance , from my place. It wpuld help if there were a second entrance.

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

I would only say that the entrance could be closer to my apartment.

Great location

Review Date Aug 2019

My apartment is spacious and has balcony access to a large open space. I really enjoy the culture of the building created. It actually used to be a night club. I like the fact that there is concierge available so packages are safe and secure. There is also a disabled access lift in reception which also handy when moving in.

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

The place has good proximity two places to work and universities. But it can get noisy at night.

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

The only issue is that the rooms can be quite dim, because of a tower near by. The automatic door sensor malfunctions at times.

What is the best feature of your home:

The balcony access from my apartment is great, gives the feel of having a lot of space.

Great but plumbing issues

Review Date Aug 2019

I found that overall the place is great. There are plumbing issues in the building that have not been fixed in a timely manner. Depending on the agency it can take a while to be fixed. The room sizes are great and decorated to a good modern standard. I would say that the wiring is weird and takes some getting used to, for example the internet and internal speaker.

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

The building is located close to all amenities, it is in walking distance to the station.

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

There are plumbing issues in the building that need addressing.

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

Nothing, except the wiring and plumbing which can be quite inconveinient.

Great but a little noisy

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

Overall, this is a nice place to live. It does get very noisy being next to deansgate. The windows only open half way which means it can get very warm. I would say that my place is modern and decorated nicely.

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

My apartment is ver central and excellent transport links. The only downside is that it can get quite noisy on weekends.

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

Nothing, except about the noise everything was communicated well.

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

I would like aircon as the windows only open partially.

Excellent living experience

Verified Resident

Review Date Apr 2020

Well ran development, staff friendly and reliable to make an enjoyable living experience. Always someone on reception to collect deliveries etc. Free car parking underneath building with 24 hour surveillance. Apartments completely soundproofed and it works perfectly. No complaints

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

Is a great location, in the middle of the city centre but not right in the centre so it has the best of both worlds. Local bars and shops close by

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

How high the council tax is but it is the city centre so to be expected really.

What is the best feature of your home:

24 hour concierge service and excellent sound proofing in apartment
