Wonderful vibrant community for enjoying London city living

Review Date Sep 2021

The two towers are luxury builds in every aspect – very spacious design, high end appliances, although some of the finishing touches inside of the flat are a bit on the cheap side and things start to flake a little after 2-3 years of living here. Property management team are great and always look after you. I feel safe coming home here, and I always know that all of my deliveries will be held securely for as long as needed.

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

This area is really starting to build up and come to life. Being right in front of Shoreditch Park has been incredible, and having the Britannia Leisure centre open up nearby has been a fantastic addition to the neighbourhood. The only negative so far has been the constant construction noise nearby.

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

I wish I had known about all of the loud construction that would be taking place right next door.

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

Yes, after some small mishaps and breakages / leaks, things usually get fixed in a timely manner.

Well designed flats with amazing views and friendly helpful concierge. Not many facilities except communal bike stores and bins, and a concierge. Building management seem responsive but have been slow sorting out a few communal repairs. A useful owners group who organise collective improvements with the management

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

Great location next to the park, very quiet but close to Angel Dalston and Shoreditch. walking distance to Old Street and Dalston.

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

Flats facing south west get very hot and also get the most wind. East and other directions are much cooler and calmer.

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

They are responsive but slow in implementation. Particularly on a few repairs.

The development is great and feels safe with respectable and likeminded neightbors. The property management company is incredibly knowledgeable – they help us out much more than our letting agent. Ideally, our letting agent could be better briefed or in touch with the property management when things go wrong as there’s always weeks of miscommunication on who is responsible for what. Our agent is Regent.

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

We love living here and are very proud of our home. We love the proximity to the canal for walks and de beauvoir for bars and restaurants. We’ve found it very challenging to work out proper commutes to central london or to shoreditch and end up taking ubers more than we’d like.

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

I wish it would have been more clear what type of sunlight we’d get on our balcony. We are happy with it but did lots of app usage and speculation to try to understand what times of day we’d be able to use. the balcony and what times of day our living room could potentially be very very warm.

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

Yes, the building management was great and knew how to fix things. The agent has never properly sent a repair person and takes weeks to respond.

Modern building with great views near the canal

Review Date Nov 2020

Great modern building with large windows, lots of natural light and stunning views. The flat is well equipped with walk-in shower, air filter unit, modern stove and appliances. The concierge team is very friendly and professional. There is safe bike storage.

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

Like:
– Angel and Broadway market with lots of cute shops in walking distance
– Old street and Hoxton in walking distance for Tube and Overground
– Parks nearby (Shoreditch Park, Haggerston Park and more)
Dislike:
– There seems to be a lot of petty crime (bike theft, phone theft, broken car windows)

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

There is lots of construction around the building which will improve the area in the long-term but caused significant noise during the summer.

What is the best feature of your home:

Wide views over North London because of large windows and few obstructing buildings

The architecture/design of the building is striking and really pops in the area. Inside, flats are well designed with good finishes and built in equipment (e.g. washing machine and dishwasher). The huge living room windows provide a lot of natural light, which is a bonus when working from home! There is bike storage available; the concierge team is friendly and always helpful.

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

Great location – close enough to the city with ~30 min walk to Bank, with a park and the canal on your doorstep. Convenient for access to Broadway Market, Victoria Park, Columbia Road Flower Market and all other East London locations for walking around on weekends. The only negative thing is that it’s ~15 min from any Overground or Old Street station, and although there is a small Coop and Tesco Metro nearby, it is not really close to a large supermarket.

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

Helpful community – there is a Facebook group for residents/tenants. I have never experienced any myself, but aware that there have been phone thefts, car break-ins in the nearby area. Plans to develop new buildings in the surrounding areas, including a tower block between Hoxton Press and Shoreditch Park.

What is the best feature of your home:

Expansive views of north London through the floor to ceiling windows and balcony access; we tend to get evening light which is a bonus in the summer as it rarely gets too hot inside

The building managers are always helpful and welcoming. We often need things like printing etc and they are always helping. The design is amazing. You are proud to invite people home when we could.
The building is always clean, and al though there sometimes are technical problems, it gets solved timely.

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

Love the vibe, area (the park 50m away) and design of the building. We got basement storage that is a game changer since we live in a Studio.
I dont have a lot of dislikes but the building is a bit far away from the tube.

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

The fact that a building is being built in front of the tower is very annoying and we will consider moving once it is complete.

What is the best feature of your home:

The windows and the view is amazing. Also love the design of bathroom and the tiles.

The Duo tower is a great place, great design to have lots of space but also receive a lot of indoor lights. There is great property support for any issues with water, internet. There are great facilities such as storage, parking slots and also, concierge can help woth packages delivery 24h.

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

The area is lovely, close to supermarkets with the view of city skyline. Additionally, the Shoreditch park is a delight for having a walk – the park is lively with families and dogs. It is a really great place to live and walking distance to the station.

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

I wish I knew that there will be a new building coming up in front of the tower which will ruin the view to the park.

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

Any issues we have encountered such as internet or water, has been dealt by the concierge with speed and professionalism.

Glad to hear any issues have been dealt with by the concierge team with speed and professionalism. We will pass your feedback to the team!

The management team are very helpful, especially the concierge on duty which is available 24/7. The building design is outstanding and the facilities too. Flats architecture was designed by two world famous architects, David’s Chipperfield and Karakusevic Carson architects.

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

This area is very well located. Close to the city (15min walk) and also close to the vibran neighborhood of Shoreditch. We love living around here.

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

That the council had plans to build Britannia project right on Shoreditch Park Primary School’s playground (which is located in front of the Hoxton Press Project).

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

Maintenance team is very slow. It takes ages to get hold of them.

The design is really well done with great views, a lot of light and properly furnished and renovated flats that are managed with great attention! What is great is that there are a lot of great automates systems for heating etc. great finishing, nice floors and great storage facilities.

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

What is missing is a big supermarket but apart from that it has a lot of green areas and possibilities to go walking and to local cafes and restaurants. Another small disadvantage is the dislocation from public transport.

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

There is nothing really that comes to my mind!

What is the best feature of your home:

The views and the finishings and that there is a lot of storage that gives the apartment a clean and beautiful look with not too much stuff flying around!

There are definitely a lot of local suppliers and green spaces near the development. Old Street station, Hoxton and Haggerston stations are all within walking distance as well for transport connectivity.
