A nice place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2019

The location is great. The views of the water are nice especially since we are so high up. It’s well connected to travel routes with Surrey Quays, Canada Water and Deptford Stations nearby.
The concierge and development management services have been great. I feel safe and supported living here.
We are the second set of tenants to live in the flat and the condition and appliances were well kept.

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

The area is clean and quiet with nice places to take walks. Greenwich is nearby which can be useful although it’s usually full of tourists which can be quite annoying. If you like going out to eat, nearby Deptford High Street has lots of nice restaurants

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

Nothing has taken me by surprise. My expectations were met.

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

I’ve made a few complaints in the past about antisocial behaviour which have been resolved quickly.

Still happy

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

When searching for our first flat one of the things we were most disappointed by was the quality of fixtures and fittings. This was the only development in our price range that had excellent standards, with things built to last. We heard so many horror stories about property management, but are fortunate that the management here has been very good. While the service charge is not cheap, I at least feel it is being used to upkeep the properties.

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

Amenities are very good – Waitrose is a short riverside walk, and there are plenty of local grocers on Deptford high street too. The train station is only ten minutes away, and DLR fifteen, with an extensive bus network meaning this is excellent for travel in London. With a popular area this close to central London comes very crowded transport, but as expected.

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

Having an open view rather than looking directly on to another apartment block has been much more impactful than I had initially thought. This is a relatively small development and that has been great.

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

The only time I have engaged directly to the management company was to clarify a bill, and that was dealt with appropriately.

I like everything, the area is good and there are great views.

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

I have done a deep research about the area and I was well informed about the developer.

Met all my expectations

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

The property is suitable for my needs. It is bright and airy with lots of natural sunlight. There aren’t any communal services or spaces expect the concierge service which I only rarely use to collect my deliveries. My neighbours are nice and the development overall met all my expectations.

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

The development is right on the river so there are nice views. Lots of useful shops on deptford high street. Transport links are good. Personally, there is nothing I dislike.

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

The electric generator outside makes a bit of noise but you quickly get used to it.

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

The flat could be a bit bigger but I am still pleased overall.

Modern

The flat is very modern and it has a good size.
It is very spacious overall, but I think it doesn’t have the better organisation, so the design of the flat could be much better.
It has a very good balcony.

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

Like -The views are very nice, it is a quiet area
Dislike- the council

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

I was surprised with the location, easy access to city centre, good amenities.

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

The development doesn’t offer any facilities, so things like a gym could be added.

Modern and stylish with a great view!

Review Date Aug 2019

Situated in a quiet area and offering great views (especially sunrises), the modern building has almost everything I wished for: great concierge service, modern furnishings and it is very close to public transport.

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

The building itself is modern, but the area around it needs a little improvement.
I like the fact that it is close to all amenities but it gives the feeling of intimacy.

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

The fact that concierge service makes your life so much easier when it comes to receiving parcels!

Convenient and calm

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2019

The development is ideal. The condition of the property was great when I moved in and the location is very convenient. The parking inspector however can be quite annoying and it’s sometimes difficult to find parking as there are often film crews filming nearby.

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

Area is good if you need to commute for work. The views of the river are very nice and the surroundings are quiet.

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

It can be a bit noisy sometimes due to low flying helicopters and party boats.

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

There’s nothing I would change about it. Every thing is spot on

Higher end area than Deptford high street therefore it’s a more desirable location. The residents are friendly and the building is designed well. The flats are modern and up to date in terms of furnishings.

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

Dislike not close enough to ventral London so work
I like that it’s close to Greenwich

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

Nothing

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

A gym would have made the property even better and more convenient
