Disappointing, communication poorly managed and frequent problems with facilities

Review Date Aug 2019

Aircon repeatedly fails in flats and facilities – residents not informed when not working in facilities and not fixed after months of complaining. Communication is poor from facilities and building management.

Incredibly loud creaking noise when windy making it unable to sleep at night.

Exec lounge is not exclusive to resident with local residents and businesses able to use it at the same price as residents – £50 an hour.. St George are able to use the lounge and I have frequently been told to move because they want to use it with no notice.

Concierge team are great and when facilities work they are also great however given how many times I have been let down, things still not fixed in facilities and flat after months plus the poor communication I would not recommend renting here.

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

Aircon useless, communication poor, concierge good

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

Facilities look good but poorly managed

Great facilities and location, very poor construction timeline and communication from St George

Review Date Dec 2019

The building is in a great location with excellent facilities and building management team. However, one year on after moving in, the construction is still going on and residents need to wait say 10 minutes for the lift! The windows are automatically inactivated (hijacked!) very often and hence there is no ventilation or fresh air. The air-conditioning turns on and off automatically…

The building management from St George has been rather unsatisfactory. Utility bills are very opaque and proprietary, some of the infrastructure completion in the flats is simply shoddy and hurriedly done, due to which things don’t work including heating for example. Responses and actions from customer services is very slow and doesn’t always resolve the issues.

On the other hand, the front desk team is excellent, the facilities are great.

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

Plenty of local amenities, shops, groceries, restaurants, etc. Central location but still not crazily busy… Could do with some more bus services.

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

Make sure you know how your utility bills work and insist on St George not commandeering the lifts and your flat heating (which they can).

What is the best feature of your home:

Apart from what I’ve written above, things are great…

One thing i wish i’d have known about the automatic windows.

Fabulous location

Theres only one lift in the building which has made moving in to the building really difficult and the builders use the same lift which has caused a significant delay to my plans. Its been really inconvenient.

I like the activities and restaraunts around here

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

I wish id have known how difficult it was going to be moving in

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

I would only change the planning of the building here.
