Been here for 2 years and great

Review Date Aug 2019

I’ve been living here 2 years now, I’ve bought the place and have had no regrets since. The apartment is the perfect size for me since I’m a single resident. My bedroom is very spacious and so is the living room. The building management are always responding to me on time and even better the concierge, they’re friendly and we all get along. My neighbours are all professionals and never disturb us either. I find everything relatively close to me, like the station and Tesco/co-op is only 6 minute walk!!

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

Station is local and so is the gym, really good amenities and people are lovely.
A few young thugs hang around sometimes though.

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

I researched a lot before moving in, it’s all Been great.

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

I live on the ground floor, I would have hoped my bedroom wasn’t Facing the development but not a big problem for me since this curtains.

Good development, shady area and poor management company

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2020

Design of the flat is good, gym is decently equipped also.

HOWEVER, the management company is extremely slow in responding queries from the residents, the rooftop of the two buildings have been closed since 6 months ago due to some leakage issues and we’ve not heard back from the company with a confirmed fix date in sight. And whenever we (the residents) ask for a response we’d often have to wait for a least months to get a feedback and often just via email with empty promises with no actions. Overall, very very very disappointed with the management company and wish we could have chosen some other alternatives.

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

The development is situated just 3 mins walk from the nearest DLR station which is very handy – there’s also a GP service which is just 5 mins walk. There are co-ops and Tesco in the walking distance also which is convenient.

There have been too many thieves and dodgy people hanging in our development – bike storage room was broken a few times and these people like to smoke in our communal area. And as of last week our flat entrance was broken into where thieves managed to steal furnitures in the communal area. Overall very disappointed.

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

How shady the area is and how bad the management company is – I wish I had known all of these and I would not have bought anything here.
I also wish I knew the concierge was not 24 hours and that we don’t get a security as this area is in dire need of security and all the headaches I’ve had could have been avoided.

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

The property management company – pinnacle which is absolutely useless.

Review Date Aug 2019

The building has a modern look and feel to it with a nice colour scheme with the exterior. The inside is designed well with regards to the layout however it would’ve been better if there was more storage. The train station is local which is nice and can use it to go to other parts of London to do things which you can’t do around here.

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

I like that you can get around quickly into London but dislike that there isn’t much to do nearby

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

I wish I knew a bit more about the area and that supermarkets are not nearby

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature is the design and aesthetics of the development

Central location

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

The design is nice and I’m more than happy with the living space. I feel that there could be air conditioning or better ventilation as it can get quite got in apartments. There have also been some issues with the doors sometimes.

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

I like that its quite central however there is a bit of crime and drugs in the area

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

I wish I knew how noisy the DLR is as its right behind me

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

I would have a/c and better ventilation during the summer

Safe area

Review Date Aug 2019

My overall impression of the building before moving in was really good and it still lives up to it. It still looks clean, and new to me, the building management really look after us which i like. I wish my rooms were a little spacious but it is what it is and i’m happy with it. The area is really nice but you have to go a bit further for shops and such.

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

Close to langdon park station but lacks social clubs and places to eat here.

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

Nothing really.

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

A resturant i think, i dont really use the gym but i know other people do,

The concierge for Lansbury square is really helpful and he always keeps my deliveries when I’m too busy to collect them, also other deliver companies like Tesco easily find my building which I didn’t have in my older development. It’s priced well for a building in London and close to transport. Always clean! And the area is kept well compared to the other areas close by.

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

There’s a few petty crimes around the area but nothing affecting me so far.
I really like my buildings area and the station, it’s all kept really clean.

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

It gets hot sometimes

What is the best feature of your home:

The bathrooms are really well sized and designed elegantly

I like the location as it is easy to get to work with the DLR station here. My apartment is designed nicely and there is also parking onsite which is good, but better if it didn’t come with a price. Overall I’m quite happy with the place but if there were supermarkets nearby it would be better.

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

I like that there are a couple of parks nearby. I dislike that there isnt much to do socially around here

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

I wish I knew that you had to pay for the parking here

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

To be honest not very well, they take long with quieries

Ive been living in my flat for 2 years, a 1 bed and i think its really well priced for what i get. It can sometimes get too hot due to thick insulation but thats not too much of a problem because i have fans to keep me cool. The concierge is lovely to me too, very active with us residents.

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

The dlr station gets me to work quick, and i use the buildings gym all the time. I dislike that theres no communal bits near by.

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

Nothing

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

The layout could br improved a little bit, maybe a little more spacious

The buildings are really clean, what i dislike is lack of shops close by

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

I wish i knew the buildin managment wouldnt be as responsive as id hoped for.

Why did you choose this development:

New building and its easy to get to central. Good value for money too!

Review Date Aug 2019

I feel that my place is well designed and also has a nice layout. It is of a decent size and I like that it looks professionally finished and of a good quality. The concierge is absolutely fantastic however the service provided by the building management could be improved.

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

I like that it’s close to Canary Wharf where I work however I feel that aesthetically some areas left of the station look more run down to those on the right.

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

There isn’t anything much really, however some residents have been told they can’t have pets whereas others have heard differently.

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

If I could change anything I’d like to have more living space and storage
