Fantastic living experience

Verified Resident

I love my apartment. It wasn’t new when I moved in but everything was very high quality, with a great floorplan and spacious layout. It’s a bit pricey but I enjoy living here

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

I like that Woolwich is a little bit unique, a lot of history behind the area which is uncommon in other areas. I also say its safe living here, and the transport links is great and getting better

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

None at all, my boyfriend was living in a development here so I knew about everything

Overall, a really nice to live and settle for young professionals

Verified Resident

The development is well built with long lasting materials which is convenient for people living here for long periods of time. Although there were a few problems when we first moved into the development, Berkeley have been great in fixing any dents or other issues we’ve had in the development.

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

Transport links are really good, buses and trains running all the time. Some shops are still yet to open but there are still great restaurants nearby

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

Cross rail, being delayed by two years

Quiet but I like it!

Verified Resident

My building could be better maintained, when I moved in it was really new! Sometimes the door doesn’t lock so it doesn’t feel secure but that’s about it

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

I like that it’s quiet around, I dislike that there’s not much going on

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

The amount of police and ambulance on road, can be noisy

Convenient and pleasant living experience

Verified Resident

My apartment is amazing, nice and well built, very good quality but the apartment is quite small to my liking. The hallways and community area are well kept and there’s also gym and swimming pool for residents to use, which I would use if I had the time!

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

This side of woolwich arsenal is quite nice, quite, quant, and theres a community vibe here. also the transport links is great with crossrail coming soon. however the town centre is rough at the moment and would say its the safest area

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

I wish I knew who my neighbours were, I had good luck with mine but it could’ve been quite the opposite!

Love the development, shame about the cross delay.

Verified Resident

Love the community and it’s great for kids. Used to live in the warehouse building now we live in building 22. I like the design, architecture and specification in the warehouse building, it’s great.

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

Transport links
Community in the development less so outside the gates.

Lots of activities for children but the high street is a way behind

Dislike the crime

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

Cross rail delay. Heathrow journey is important for us as we are ex pats and have family visiting us.

Thames clipper is a great service wish we had used it from the beginning. Especially at the weekend.

We would like the option to pay for access to the pool.
