Be part of East London’s newest community

Verified Resident

Very new, still a few hurdles that need ironing out, such as security but overall a very nice place to live! New gym and pool being built, shops and independent cafes opening up, really starting to look and feel like a community. No noise issues and neighbours are welcoming.

Flats are all built to the same specifications, look like they could last a long time.
Biggest issue is parking and receiving deliveries, but with enough reason these will hopefully stop being problems!

Please review the location of this development:

Great DLR links to the city, not much choice of shops but Stratford and Woolwich are both very close.

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

Bad cellphone signal, which can only be improved with time. WiFi calling is a must.

Some flat have terrible views, make sure you know what you’re getting into.

Lovely development – great location and build

Verified Resident

I fell in love with this development since I’ve seen it the first time. There’s a local Starbucks, Sainsbury’s and a concierge at the moment – with a leisure centre (which is free for residents) and a bar opening before the end of the year. Overall, this development is coming along very nicely, lots of lovely people – there’s many new buildings finishing up soon so lots of opportunities for viewings. Only issue is that the postcode doesn’t show up everywhere if you’re doing loads of online shopping but I’m sure this will come along soon enough and there’s always a way around that anyways!

Please review the location of this development:

The only downside is that there’s still quite a lot of construction going on within the development – but the people and spirit within the community make up for it!

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

The water and gas is provided communally and you’re not able to switch gas providers due to this.

Enjoying Royal Wharf living

Verified Resident

We moved in 6 months ago as one of the first tenants and are really enjoying Royal Wharf. The commute to the city is really easy and takes 20 minutes on the DLR, our flat is lovely and the design and layout of the development is fantastic. There were a few early small issues but they were quickly sorted and to be expected in a newly completed building. Our only disappointment has been in the lack of community facilities. With many parts of the development still being built these have not been completed yet and we feel the lack of community – a bar or other facilities would be of benefit to current residents though as buildings are completed I am sure this will improve over time.

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

The brochures said there would be a number of facilities available to residents but many of these have still not been completed. I wish I had known the timeline for these additional services in advance as the Sainsburys wasn’t completed until December, 4 months after we moved in. Many things haven’t been finished yet so ask for a timeline.

Lack of updates

I love my flat and living here but it has been annoying how little we hear about the timeline for completion of services. I was hoping the leisure centre would be ready this summer but people are now saying 2019. My landlord said he is chasing for more information.

Lack of communication

With the lack of central facilities for a while (at the time I was furious about the delay to the supermarket) it has meant that it has been hard to meet neighbours. The Leisure centre was meant to be completed but I now hear from neighbours that it will be end of 2018 or maybe 2019. When you are a stay at home mum it is disappointing and there is a complete lack of communication on what ws happening. However it is improving and businesses on site are starting to open up.

The Royal Wharf news forum is amazing for updates and for finding out what is happening (quicker than the developer messaging you) There is also a residents facebook group (you need to ask to be invited) where people ask questions but there are also events and meet ups advertised (usually at the Starbucks) .

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

A direct number to someone in the developers office! Probably realising that I could find out a lot from the forum on royalwharfnews and it would have saved me a lot of searching and emailing the developer
