Great property!

Review Date Nov 2020

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!

Hi Julie,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We agree that the design of Hoxton Press by architects Karakusevic Carson and David Chipperfield is really special. The floor to ceiling windows ensure that all the homes are bright and spacious, with some amazing views of the City!

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.

Best regards
Natalie

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.

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 towers look very different from pretty much any other new development we ‘ve seen. It doesn’t feel like a skyscraper and it doesn’t feel like the usual new London development. The building’s ground floor feels special as it is an open space decorated minimally with some nice colour furniture. The elevators and areas between the apartments look very stylish with low lighting and nice pattern tiles.

The only negative I would give is that two elevator on peak times give you a bit of waiting time.

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

Great area for professionals, in front of the Shoreditch Park and walking distance to City with a lot of small shops around. There is no big Supermarket or an underground station near so it is clean and quiet.

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

We didn’t learn anything that wasn’t resolved. I can say with a degree of certainty that our purchase and experience was seemless

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

All the problems were answered and there was an quick resolution.

Nice design, views, high ceilings and materials. Balconies are really handy in the summer. The electrical appliances are also very high quality, as is the ventilation and underfloor heating. Lifts could be bigger given how often people move in/out in London

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

Nice bars and proximity to canal, Broadway market, new schools. It’s also very quiet in tens of traffic

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

Wish I would know how expensive parking spaces are

What is the best feature of your home:

Big floor to ceiling windows offering great views.
