Awesome

Verified Resident

We live in a cocoon, which makes it very nice and safe for me to stay. There’s a nice pool with fully staffed gym so any problems that I have, I can be assisted.
There’s local shops in the area and a shopping centre in Stratford which is close by.
I had an inside apartment change where I removed the walls. Also, I have a massive living room which is great. Decoration is amazing.

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

They have been amazing, all problems have been responded to amazingly.

Great home and area for my young family

Verified Resident

There is a lot of things coming into the development such as a film school and football pitches. The apartment was build to a high spec and the view of Canary Wharf is really great. We have two bathrooms which is really spacious for a 2 bedroom apartment.

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

I think the area feels very safe for my new family and it feels like there is a community. There needs to be more retail but I know it is coming. The ballet performances are really lovely.

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

Nothing really as we did a lot of research and we knew a lot about it.

Vibrant, modern and like a hub

Verified Resident

We rent here and its pretty good, not had many run ins with the management here so I think they’re okay, the lack of shops here is a bit annoying, as the nearest is in west india quays or on the other side of canning town station

They’ve been alright, usually direct us to our landlord

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

I like that all the facilities are included

i dont like that there are no cheap shops nearby

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

One thing I wish I’d have known before moving in is how local the shops were

Safe and welcoming neighbourhood

Verified Resident

I like that there is a gym and the pool area within the development which is really convenient however it is quite small. The concierge is 24 hours and are so useful when it comes to any issues or deliveries.
The Garden area gets cleaned really regularly and is beautiful during the summer.
Family feel and feels safe as I have never had any security issues.
The hot water has been cut out 3 times in the last 2 months which is due to the construction so I expect it will get better.

What is the best feature of your home?

I like the view from the balcony overlooking the garden.

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

The noise from the construction
causes dust on the windows. No shop near the area. And grocer is very minimal and barely has anything in it.

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

There was no shop in the area and how small the gym which max allows 20 people max.

Quiet and convenient

Verified Resident

I’ve just moved in here from another development, and I’m finding it good so far, I wish I’d have known which properties faced which direction, as it can get quite windy at times. I also wish the gym was a bit bigger as it is quite small for the amount of people here.

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

They’ve been quite good, I haven’t had any problems yet

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

I like the staff here as they’re really friendly

i dont like the fact that the gym is too small

Would recommend, spacious

Verified Resident

The area is very spacious, all the buildings are well organised and in good positions. There is no local shops so I have to walk 10-15 minutes to get to them.

However, the gym and pool are too small.

Haven’t had any problems so I wouldn’t know if they were good.

Positives:

The pool isn’t going to be ready for another 2/3 years
