Design of the buildings are average, they need to be modernised inside with improvements for upcoming technologies. Area is nice and local amenities are very good. The Dial Arch pub is a great evening out and the food and drink are great. Overall a nice area to live.

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

Generally a quiet area with good local amenities.

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

Blinds dont keep the light out

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

The layout of the bedroom as the wardrobes are not deep enough.

Very pleased

Verified Resident

Very well kept and very quiet I love that my flat is on the ground floor, however there’s a lot of works going on preventing me from sleeping in the day as I work mostly nights, the environment is very well kept and I live to sit in the court yard on summer days

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

I like that it’s very close to the markets

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

Wish I had known more history of the area

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

Quickly and fairly I have no problems at all when it relates to this topic

Great community really pretty

Verified Resident

Air conditioning would be nice but nonetheless the property is great. Nice room sizes for storage and inviting guests over for dinner or anything. The windows open wide allowing as much air into the property as possible. I thoroughly enjoy the gym and pool that is available for us to use

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

Everything is near the development but the high street could be improved

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

Nothing

Quite nice, and recommend living here

Verified Resident

We live in one of the older developments, and I liked the unusualness of the building, with high ceilings and dated look. The facilities are good quality and the shared concierge has great service. We have our own gym facility, but no pool like the other residents

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

Crossrail was promised to be open a year ago, but it still hasnt been open with many delays. DLR is closeby but still takes an hour to get to central london. but other than that the area is great, good amount of shops, and our side of woolwyis relatively safe

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

I’ve seen how this area developed over many years, so finding out how this area grew was a pleasant surprise

Central location and great shops close by

Verified Resident

The door breaks constantly! They’ve fixed it before but it still keep breaking, however the rest of the building is well maintained and it’s cleaned regularly which is great. I do wish we had access to the gym!

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

I like the transport links, near the river and not too busy. Good variety of shops!
I dislike that the door on our building breaks all the time

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

There’s a gym and concierge but we don’t have access to it. Not included in our service charge and we don’t know why.

Overall satisfied

Verified Resident

There a lot of space in my flat, I pay a reasonable amount for what it provides.
The facilities are quite good but the gym could be bigger to fit all the people in the development

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

I like that there are open spaces, the lighting and the old buildings.
I dislike how difficult it is to fix communal issues

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

I would’ve like to know that the crossrail would take longer to complete

Great amenities and the river!!!!!

Verified Resident

At first, it was a lot better than I expected although we moved from Lincoln it was very different compared. The facilities are fairly great however the steam room always breaks which isn’t great! Other than that I really enjoy living here.

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

I like that’s it’s on the river, the pool in the development, the farmers market and that the area is quiet! There’s a few moany neighbours but it’s not a big problem!

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

Nothing really, I researched before being moving here.

Lovely community

Verified Resident

My flat is decently sized, it was reasonably priced.
The building management could be better, there should be some transparency with the service charge as they don’t explicitly tell you were the money is going

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

I like the community and that it’s near to the river, it’s also well maintained. I dislike the crimes that go on in the estate.

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

I was well informed when I moved in
