These modern apartments all benefit from a resident only podium garden and private outside space, with great views of the serene canal, striking London skyline or the green spaces of Bartlett Park.

The development has been very well planned and on the whole the neighbours are respectful and considerate.

The development has been very well planned and on the whole the neighbours are respectful and considerate. I say on the whole as there is one household who can be antisocial at times but it’s not constant, and I think you would get that anywhere. If there are issues, Peabody are usually quick to respond. The site team are amazing, if there’s any maintenance work or repairs to be carried out, these are remedied very quickly.

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

It’s an amazing location, stunning views of Canary Warf, which incidentally is just minutes away by DLR or walking. Surrounded by green spaces and the Limehouse Cut canal. Local amenities are great, it’s very quiet. Although we have a park opposite it’s not massively busy and is a great space to chill out in. Poplar Union is a very established community hub, providing a wide range of cultural events.

On the whole, I absolutely love it here.

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

It’s not a great area for parking, so maintenance people (plumbers, electricians etc.) visiting friends and family are going to have issues parking around here.

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

The kitchen door was originally hung so it opened the wrong way, basically you could have been opening the door straight into someone taking something out of the oven. The developer remedied this but didn’t change the position of the kitchen light switch, which is now behind the door. I wished that had been amended also.

A gem in e14

Review Date Jul 2021

The design of the building and, more specifically, of my flat is pretty good and well thought out. There is no concierge or gym on-site, which I used to see as a negative but now appreciate given the cost of the above.

The property is managed well by a committed group of residents.

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

Excellent overall; area rapidly gentrifying with more and more new developments popping up all over the place.

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

Installing a proper shower screen turned out to not be a problem at all as all tiles are waterproof!

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

I would probably come up with a common area where people can meet.

Distinctly average

Review Date Jul 2021

Elevator was always broken
Management services were notoriously slow
Should have incorporated concierge
No gym
Parcels were stolen
Hallway got very hot in summer
Took a very long time to sort the things like extra keys for parking
After it rained heavy, you would have a bad smell come up through the building

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

Park stabbing
Low traffic noise
Bin collection good
Close to DLR and lidl plus tesco

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

Make sure you are quick to pick up parcels when they arrive

Things like organising parking access were very slow. Responded to elevator issues very slowly

LOVELY NEW BUILD

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The design is fantastic, i would have loved a window in the bathroom and kitchen. The lift breaks down frequently and it can be hard with a pram and young kids..

I wish the Housing Estate would be of more assistance with the dirty tenants and help combat this behaviour.

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

The good points about living in this development is that theres a beautiful view from the balcony. The front room is big and i love living here. I like the community decent schools nearby. Beautiful playground.

A downside is that some of the tenants are dirty and leave their rubbish in communal areas.

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

Tips: you can only assess Internet providers and water from a select few companies. Water is pricey

Review for MAKERS DOCK, E14 Peabody

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

the building design aint the best due to the various weak locks and wall cracks. The shower heads arent the best, but the facilities like the lift is good. the property management is fine and when plumbing repairs are needed its good but there needs to be improvement with the design in terms of the quality.

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

Its good as theres not lots of facilities and nearby parks and shops and stations and bus stops. Location is great.

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

I wish i would have known the electric water service and that we have to top up whenever we need hot water.

Great Development

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

My development is a great development as the kitchen we have is really big and convenient. The balcony is also placed in a good area. The toilets are nicely made. The storage rooms are also at a decent size to fit all your goods inside. The bedrooms are at a good standard.

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

The goods about my local area is that there are many shops around and many schools so I wouldnt have to travel far for goods. The area is also a good area with a great community.

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

I wish i knew that there are certain internet providers you can be with at the start of living here.
