Nice area

Review Date Sep 2019

My building is decently sized, modern and new. I would say that the price I pay is reasonable compared to other flats in London. I feel safe in and outside of my flat and never had issues with security.
The building management have been very good at answering emails and fixing issues.
My favourite feature would have to be the balcony because the view of the canal is beautiful.

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

i like thate the development is in walking distance from camden station, however i dislike how noisy it can get.

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

i wish i had known that it could get so noisey .

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

i would make the bedrooms slightly larger, because its small compared to the flat

Nice aesthetic, however poorly built.

Review Date Sep 2019

The building has been poorly designed as you can tell it’s been rushed. There are water leaks constantly running through the building, the paint chips regularly and the building management has been unresponsive when asked to fix the issues. It can get very loud due to the building being close to the train station.

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

I like the fact, there’s a canal next to the building. on the other hand, I dislike the noise pollution within the area.

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

i wish i had known about the issues within the flat.

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

they have been unresponsive and do not try to fix the problems when mentioned.

Nice facilities, not enough supermarkets

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2019

Good quality facilities and a bit of noise pollution within the area because of trains nearby. I like that when I am locked out the concierge lets me in, which means i don’t need my key a lot of the time.

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

Not a lot of supermarkets, traffic not convenient, need to walk ten minutes for nearest bus station. the area is safe. There’s a canal to get to kings cross but in in the dark it can get quite scare

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

Wish i knew there wasn’t any wifi before moving in.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature about my home is the air conditioning.

The winter garden has to be my favourite feature of the home.

i like that its central, well connected and there are a lot of amenities.

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

There’s nothing i wish knew about my flat prior to moving in.

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

i would change the view to the canal as my flat faces the rail tracks.
