Great flat, great location!

The building itself is great, with modt flats benefiting from large balconies with great views. Theres a gym and a work from home lounge, both of which have free wifi. Theres a tennis court on top of decathlon that is available to tennants after 6pm. The concierge staff are fantastic and i have lived here for over 8 months now and have had no issues with property management.

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

The area is fantastic, taking just two minutes to get to canada water. However, if you prefer to walk, it takes just thirty minutes along the thames path to reach towerbridge, and its a lovely walk! Beautiful greenwich is just 15 minutes by bus or a 30-minute walk, again along the thames path. The area cannot be faulted.

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

I wish i’d known that the walls are completely soundproof, as i was almost put off the flat in case it was too noisy – i genuinely cant hear a thing from neighbours!

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

It would be great if our balcony got a bit more sun, but cant complain too much about that.

Review Date Apr 2020

A great development with good quality flats which benefits from great transport links.

Its great to have a free tennis court which comes in very useful to get a few sets in when you’re at a loose end.

My balcony also has a cracking view and is great for enjoying an evening beer 👌.

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

It has great connections to central London.

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

I wish I had considered which flats get better sunlight.

What is the best feature of your home:

We are on the 15th floor and from the living room we get great panoramic views, looking west across London. It’s the perfect setting for a few drinks with friends.

Stylish and convenient living for working professionals.

Review Date Apr 2020

The development has a number of attractive features including the elevated garden that is well kept and makes the most of the sunlight. It’s is designed with those wanting to keep active in mind with a gym, tennis court and secure bike storage. The management and concierge are professional and polite.

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

Canada Water Station gives quick and easy access the whole of London. Amenities are close by with supermarkets, pubs and restaurants at close by.

The downside to the immediate area is that the local community is largely working professionals which is very noticeable when out and about.

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

Think about how much sun your outside space will get!

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

During the COVID-19 pandemic building management were quick to increase cleaning and implement additional safety precautions.

Great for students!

Review Date Sep 2019

Our rooms came fully furnished with cooking supply’s, linens which is amazing being a study abroad student. it’s a new apartment and came very clean and also very modern. the closets are pretty small, not enough for all my stuff and room sizes are kinda small too. we have a decathlon so we have access to the gym and outdoor courts. An indoor laundry machine and a great living room with massive windows that overlook the city.

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

Really nice area, safe, residential and quiet. Canal nice atmosphere, lots of places to shop. I like this area a lot

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

none, i have no complaints about this place at all!

Overall, the development is amazing, not much to complain about. The concierge i believe is 24 hrs, they have a gym and theres also access to the sport pitch which you can book. The rooms are a good size and quality is really good as well.
I haven’t had to deal with building management as i’ve only had minor issues.

not too busy
close to transport
shops nearby
shopping centre is also nearby
area is safe

hawker house is noisy

Cosy apartment in a convenient area

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

The building is nice, looks great inside and out, better designed than our last student apartment in the States. The apartment came in furnished and of good quality which was nice. Theres a gym inside the residence which you have to pay 35 pounds for which is very over priced. Also there isn’t any drying facilities for my clothes, and have to hang them outside.

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

I like how theres many stores around the area which is convenient for shopping, but don’t like how far it is from the city which is annoying if i want to go out with friends or go school

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

I wish i knew about the pricing of the gym was told it was £10 but its actually £35.

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

i had no issues so far and never had to call them so good experience i guess

Amazing student apartment

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2019

The apartment is great, everything came very new and was fully furnished when i moved in. I’m a student renting here and a down side is it doesn’t come with desks. However it does comes with gym which i pay a little extra for and little common lounge. Also theres balconies but we’re not allowed on it. On the third floor theres a terrace with great views of the city including canary wharf. When i want to visit another persons flat I unfortunately don’t have access to their floor which is inconvenient as a student, but does give me peace of mind for safety.

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

I really like how close the accommodation is to the canals. theres a great, warm atmosphere here with a skateboarding scene, and also near the tube. would day its also pretty safe

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

The student rooms closet space are a bit small which is annoying

positives:
the area is close enough to central
not to busy

negatives:
not too much to do

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

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

i would change the blinds to be able to shut out the sunlight.
