Pleasant place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2021

The development has been pleasantly designed: the spaces are well curated and you have a sense of security walking home. The path is well lit and there are step free access to most places. We used to have fly tipping problems but the building manager sorted it by adding extra bins. The only downside is that the building site in front of the development is really loud: windows are well insulated but when open, the noise is really disrupting. They work every day from 8 to 6, including Saturday mornings.

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

The development is really conveniently located next to Canning Town station, which is perfect for commuting to Central London. There’s a gym and a grocery store on site, as well as a few coffee shops and restaurants. However most of the shops are currently empty which limits your options. You are still very close to Barking Road, which has a post office and several other shops as well as Royal Wharf and the Emirates cable car (15 min by walk).

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

Definitely I wished we were told about the building site times and loudness.

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

Yes, they have always been easy to reach via email and always provided us with necessary information.

Excellent location, and sufficient facilities with a great podium garden and a rooftop garden, but managing agent could be better!

Verified Resident

Review Date Oct 2021

Build quality while pretty good, is not as high as the level of what it was being marketed at the time. The gym is also surprisingly too small.

Otherwise a good development with sufficient facilities especially the podium garden is great and most importantly excellent location, especially with direct basement access to shops like Morrisons etc.

Meanwhile the managing agent itself has been the main issue that is disappointing. Just very passive, not competent enough, and not transparent enough. Dealing with issues, they are not prompt enough. If this is improved, there would be little to fault this development.

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

Access to transport links are excellent, with DLR and Tube just opposite, as well as bus terminal too.

Availability of shops/restaurants are also excellent, being in basically a newly developed town centre, and only getting better.

Traffic noise is something that can be improved. Bin collections is also still a bit problematic with the bins are basically too small and easily overfilled.

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

How good the managing agent would be. How responsible the developers would be in addressing snags.

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

Not prompt and swift enough, very passive and need lots of chasing. They also did not do proper handover from the developers leading to ongoing recurring issues where the managing agent just didn’t seem to have a good hold of the problem.

Good place to live

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

Hallsville quarter is a nice place to live, modern and clean. The position is excellent for Morrisons downstairs and the tube and bus station at 2 minutes walk.
The flats are very new and quite.
The garden is looked after very well.
The only problem is the rubbish. 3 bins are not enough for 85 apartments, plus the building management team is very poor in proving the fob key. We are still waiting for it since March, not even had a response from them.

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

Good position, new flats, quiet place to live.
Poor rubbish management

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

Getting the fob key

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

Not very helpful at all. Our agency and ourself tried many times to get the fob key for months and still had no reply

Convenient location with excellent property management

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2020

After the opening of Morrisons, it is super convenient to buy groceries by simply taking a lift to ground floor. The Jubilee Line and DLR is just 1 minute walk away from the building. The building is very clean and well managed by the Mainstay. They issue informative bi-weekly newsletter for the residents which I really appreciated. I cannot find somewhere else better than this.

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

Canning Town is regenerating and as it is convenient to Canary Wharf and crossrail station. The area is full of investment potential.

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

Neighborhood is surprisingly friendly and safe. Restaurants nearby are super valued and delicious.

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

Traffic noise is a concern but it is not noticeable after closing the windows.

Lovely development

Review Date Sep 2021

I’ve been living in this place for the last year and It’s a great place to live in. It’s a clean development and the garden is lovely.
It has all the amenities you could think of.
The two elevators in the building are quite slow. You could improve this.

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

There are a lot of shops around the development , gyms and the train station is 2 minutes away. The area it’s quiet .

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

I wish I knew how to access the allotment area to plant veggies

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

Fast and helpful with all the needs we have had in the past

Downsides of the building

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

The design of the building is cool however, there some points should be considered before you move in. Firstly, there is no wastes room so you need to go outside of the building to throw your trash which is something inconvenient at all. Secondly, the concierge service is not there for you.

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

There are so many things around the building such as coffee shops, gyms, restaurants, bars. Canning Town station is a stone’s throw from the property. Morrisons’s entrance is just the basement of the building.

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

I wish i had known that there is no trash room in the building.

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

Well, i have not had big issues and they are so nice

Great facility but not the best location

Review Date Oct 2021

Lack of facilities around the area. There is a lack of park, nice restaurants or bars around the area.
The closest location to do so are Canary Wharf or Stratford. E16/Canning town is not as dynamic as the other locations.
Lack of sport facilities (tennis or large green spaces)

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

The location is slightly too far from zone 1

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

N/a

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

Concierge is reliable with mail and parcels. The people and nice and polite.

Needs more attention from management

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

The rubbish disposal has been a problem since the beginning 6 years ago, the underground bins are not enough for the many families living in the development and are always overflowing making the entrance look like a dumping site, the management have not been able to do anything about it. Services charges are very high in comparison to other developments in the area and are not justified.

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

The positives: transport services are good in the area, also there is a variety of shops and restaurants close by. The negatives: the bins collections have been a problem from the beginning, the underground bins can only be emptied by a particular truck and when this truck breaks down, the bins don’t get collected and the rubbish overflows attacking rats, flies and other pest. When this happens the smell is unbearable,this has happened several times. Also I have had to report anti-social behaviour as my neighbours hold very loud parties until 4am and their guests make a mess on the communal areas, leaving rubbish and bottles all around.

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

I wish I new service charges can go up at a ridiculous rate and the tenants don’t have a say on how this is spent.

Review Date Oct 2021

the development is ok. the management is ok. not too good not too bad. but the cladding report is still an issue. the building quality is just ok. there are some small issues from time to time, but living here is still comfortable. I feel lucky that I don’t live in those badly managed buildings

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

the area is ok. very convenient. we have supermarket and close to the tube station. but if you walk across the road, it is a bit messy

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

I know there will be more development nearby. so I guess the earlier you buy, the cheaper

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

yes. they response with some solutions usually. and normally the issues are resolved

Overall it is good

Review Date Oct 2021

Design and all facilities are ok. The property management are trying their best. The building management is not very responsive. When something break in the public area they are not really quick to repair it. Sometimes we are waiting months our lift to be repaired.

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

Everything is just in the House. Shops, restaurants, parks are around. All transport is like 4 min walk from home. There is no parking for residents available, except for disabled people. Some problems with the bins, but overall the management is trying to solve it. Lifts are breaking down often. Anti-social behaviour only from people who don’t leave here.

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

Even emergencies are not solved quickly or properly.
