Pleasant place to live

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!

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

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.

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

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

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.

Average to Good Property

Review Date Sep 2021

It’s a good construction with good space. There aren’t a lot of facilities available such as gym, pool etc. But there is a concierge during the day time. Security is good the property. Building management could be better as there are delays in getting your request completed in time.

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

It is well connected with Underground Jubilee line just couple of minutes walk away as well as bus station nearby. With Morrisons and Co-op nearby, grocery shopping is easy. 24/7 Food Inn on the Barking road is also really helpful when shopping outside usual hours.

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

Facilities and building management are not great when compared to other modern apartments.

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

Building management is slow to respond and does not resolve the issues in timely manner

Building facility and management is good. Having private garden which is a plus. Flat is desigbed in such a way that it gives more space and good storage is given in the flat which is very useful utility. It was really a very smooth process to deal with agent and get lease signed.

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

Locality is very good, Grocery store, bus stand, train station is couple of minutes away. Wide variety of pubs opening. It is great to live in this locality.

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

Parking is not available for our flat.

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

They are responsive enough to resolve any problems.

Location is King

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2021

The design of development is very modern and stylish, straight from the lobby. The properties have really nice interiors, a mix of black and white in the kitchen area, super neat and elegant. The wooden floor makes you feel right at home. The gym is great, the right size and all the equipment one might need to get this much needed workout in.

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

The development is ideally located, right opposite the Canning Town station and surrounded by great shops, restaurants, health and postal
services. It would take you about five minutes to get to the O2, and the Westfield shopping centre is stone’s throw away. Saying that the area is convenient would be an understatement.

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

One caveat is the proximity of the flyover. It’s not overly noisy, but I would have picked another property in the building, had I paid more attention to the level of noise coming from the traffic. It’s been three years, and barely notice it now.

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

The building management staff are not only super competent but they are also very friendly. For any matter or query you need help with, they are always keen to sort you out. What I really like is how they keep you abreast of any updates throughout the process.
