Highly rated development

Review Date Apr 2022

The development itself is laid out really well and the space has been used extremely efficiently. The communal space is a great co-working space to catch a break from the apartment and do some work. Along with the 2 outdoor rooftop spaces which are provided with heaters, another great area to work which looks out onto the Leeds accompanied with the fresh air and great sun (when it’s a nice day of course!). The building itself is extremely new, modern, and up-to-date with its designs, layout, and features. The gym is fantastic, especially because it’s on a high floor and has a panoramic view that looks on for miles. It has the perfect amount of gym equipment and amazing natural lighting. There is an outdoor space where workouts can be done outside if you’d like. Not to mention the cleanliness of the buildings and their facilities. I’d highly rate the development overall.

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

Mustard Wharf is located in the most fantastic and convenient area of Leeds. It sits along the Leeds and Liverpool canal which is a beautiful path to walk, cycle or run along at any time of the day. It’s surrounded by the most amazing restaurants and bars which sit right on top of the canal, providing a beautiful view. There is a water taxi that takes you to Leeds Dock, just a 10-minute journey away which is filled with more restaurants and vibrancy. Not to mention the nearest supermarket is a 4-minute walk away, Leeds City Centre just a 10-minute walk away along with a 3-minute walk to the train station and bus stops at almost every corner. Mustard Wharf also has its own 90-degree coffee shop right at the doorstep of the residence. It’s the definition of convenience.

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

Prior to moving in, I wish that there was more of a highlight on the additional bills that you will need to pay such as electricity, heating, water, and utilities on top of the monthly rent.

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

The building management always responds immediately to any problems or issues that are raised. Right from the beginning, they have been extremely supportive, kind, and very helpful.

From beginning to end of our tenancy, the property management of Mustard Wharf has been nothing short of a joke.
From accepting our application to rejecting it the day we were supposed to move in, which was only sorted due to full payment of rent, to increasing our deposit deductions due to damage done by their own maintenance team. The service is shocking. Emails have been continuously ignored or rudely replied too. I highly recommend you look elsewhere for a place to live, unless you enjoy getting the living daylight robbed from you for terrible service and a bang average building.

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

Good location, except for the incredibly noisy train station and unsafe streets.

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

I wish I knew how awful the management are, they completely ruined our experience of living in Leeds.

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

It takes around 4 weeks to receive a reply, and that’s only after hounding them.

Mustard Wharf Really Cuts It

Verified Resident

Review Date Jun 2022

The apartments are lovely with great design & finish. I love the balcony where I can sit with a glass of wine in the arm weather. The king sized bed is very comfortable with tables & a trendy sofa also supplied. The lifts and hallways remind me of a 5 star hotel. The rooftop garden is very pleasant too.

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

Lovely location by the canal. Close to pubs, restaurants, shopping centre, car parks and train station. The market & supermarket are only a 15 minute walk away.

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

Excellent WiFi & SKY plumbed in is fantastic.

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

A pipe burst inside my wall & my apartmentwas flooded. I was given another apartment while mine was fixed.

Hi Stevie,

Thank you for your review, I’m so happy that you love Mustard Wharf and that you’re home is so comfortable. I’m also happy that everything went to plan when we had to rehome you for a short period of time, (shorter than planned) thank you for your patience and understanding during that time, its very much appreciated.

Thanks again
Johnathan

Good place to live. Certain elements could be better

Review Date May 2022

The design is good and modern, however some components seem cheap. (Kitchen work tops)

The furnishings although may look nice, are not comfortable or homely. Comfort over design could have been considered on these items (sofa in particular)

The lamp above our table looks unfinished.

But apart from the above points it is a good looking flat

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

The gym is a bit basic. Also the building I am in has no facilities, so always have to go to another building. Other than that, is quiet and comfortable

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

I wish I had known where the best places for dog walks are.

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

They have been very quick to respond and kind and courteous at all times

Hi Steven

Thank you for your review, we’re so glad you’re happy here at Mustard Wharf.

I’d be interested in understanding where we could improve on the repairs and maintenance aspect, please feel free to come and speak to me or my Resident services team to discuss any issues further.

The team will also be happy to discuss places to walk your dog and maybe introduce you to other dog owners so you’ve got company.

Thanks
Johnathan

Happy overall with the design, facilities, building management and property management. The only reason I gave it 4 stars above is due to the cleaning standard in the hallway on my floor in Brickworks. It could be improved slightly.

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

Excellent location with so many amenities close by and so much more to comes. It’s a great spot to enjoy bars/restaurants close by. Being so close to the Canal Towpath is really convenient too for those who enjoy walking/running/cycling. The apartment that we are in is facing Wharf Approach so it is quite and we are not disturbed by any road noise which is great. The street seems quite overall.

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

Nothing that I can think of.

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

Haven’t had to raise any issues so far which is great!

This is the best apartment I have been lived in. The beautiful and modern design, top class and environmentally friendly facilities, excellent quality furnishings and appliances. Only one issue is the sofa, not quite comfortable, and I don’t think it is worth the price. I really like the Gym and Hideaway. The building management and property management team is super friendly and professional.

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

The location is excellent, less than 10 mins walk to the city centre. The building is quite close to the train station, but you can barely hear any noise thanks to the excellent soundproof windows.

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

The wall peels off very easily, so be careful when you are hanging anything on it.

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

The building management responded to any problems or issues I have raised quickly and efficiently.

Great facilities- gym, Co working space and roof terraces are great. Small touches like the dog shower and different to what is available elsewhere. Nicely decorated common areas and always clean. Friendly and helpful reception and any problems solved quickly. Only requests would be glass recycling bins and bins outside with the number of Residents who have dogs.

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

Great location 5 minute walk from city centre and next to station. Lots of pubs / bars near by as well as canal for dog walks.

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

Lots of additional benefits and resident activities such as invites to local restaurant openings

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

Only had 2 issues since moving in- my key bent and I was immediately given a new one. Washing machine error was fixed in 24 hours.

Review Date Mar 2022

– Complex is designed very well, community areas and apartments themselves are modern, clean and simple
– Gym is modern, clean and not too busy however is lacking some equipment
– Apartment generally is well kept however there was some snags when we moved in that we alerted the repairs team about (chips in floor, stains on wall etc.) and we were told to just document this for when we are leaving but these issues were not
fixed
– apartments are designed in a way which makes them easy to decorate as they come with starter furnishings
– there has been padded sheets on elevators since we moved in which we find to be very unsightly and claustrophobic

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

– extremely close to train station
– Tesco express 4 minute walk away
– coffee shop in building and restaurants and bars 2 minute walk away
– parking is non-existent as the mustard wharf parking is full and the street parking nearby is not safe ( would suggest organising private car park)
– no anti-social behaviour or traffic noise
– bin areas could be cleaned more regularly but generally managed well
– staff are lovely
– great community feel
– Events held in the apartment complex regularly
– often receive discounts for various establishments around Leeds
– we are a couple who work in the city and find the apartment to be perfect for us location wise and in terms of noise level etc.

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

– monthly service charge for hallways
– no suitable, reasonably priced parking close to the building

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

– Emails are sent round if there are any problems e.g. emails requesting people don’t smoke, keep the bin area tidy and refrain from slamming doors which we welcome!
– repairs and maintenance service is not the best as described above

Facilities were great, but I don’t like that they are on different buildings.
Management team are so helpful specially Matthew and Lora. We called for help regarding the toilet blocked, Lora got here within 10 minutes and fixed it within 5 minutes. She was so polite and friendly, well done.

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

There are like 5 minutes walk to many restaurants, 10 minutes walk to the city centre with all local shops, restaurants, bars etc. We went to the train station within 5 minutes. Construction next to our building, minor noise in the morning.

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

You have electric charger for car in your parking.

Fast to got the job done.

Hi Jack

Thank you for your review and kind words, I’m so happy you love living at Mustard Wharf.

I’m pleased that the team are looking after you and your needs, and that will continue.

Not sure what you mean about the electric charge points as we do have EV Charing points available!! Please come and see me or the resident services team if you need any more information.

Thanks again.
