There are quite a few residential blocks in this area but this is one of the newest and it has lots of space, light and beautiful big windows. It is promoted as hotel living and whilst I wouldnt go that far the development is lovely – good facilities and an M&S food downstairs. The back of the development does overlook a busy train line so avoid that side.
We viewed but decided not to rent there as went for somewhere closer to Kilburn High Road
QPP is a slick modern development that stands out as a particularly unique place to live in the heart of Queens Park. All apartments are contemporary in design and finished to high spec throughout ” despite a few frustrating teething problems to begin with. The flats are flooded with natural light thanks to generous-size windows and benefit from spacious balconies or roof terraces that look onto the communal private gardens ” which are well maintained by the gardening team.
Made up of three separate buildings, the main entrance foyer in Alderside (staffed by 24-hour concierge) is definitely the jewel in the crown, with impressive modern design and a cosy communal seating area. The other two smaller foyers in Cedarside and Birchside are clean and functional, yet lacking in ambience and style.
We are lucky to have a space in the underground car park, which is safe and secure (it also houses a bike shed), and comes with a spacious storage unit.
The Queens Park area is perfect for families and young professionals, with a great sense of community ” as is evident at the weekly Sunday farmers market. The park is only a few minutes walk from the development, and offers a lot for its size, with tennis courts, gym stations, playgrounds, a mini golf course and a cafe.
Another obvious bonus is Queens Park underground, with the Bakerloo line station directly opposite the development. You can be at Paddington in seven minutes and Oxford Circus in fifteen.

Â Trains are a little noisier than we thought, but this is quickly something you get used to. There is an active Queens Park Place Facebook group that we only heard about recently.
