Great spot

Verified Resident

The property is fine. Majority of neighbours are pleasant however there are a few unlikable ones. There is not enough parking spaces and to buy a parking space in the underground car park can cost up to £20,000

Royal Docks

I like the area and the fact that we are getting more services around. Its very well linked with central London. However, the DLR is getting very busy due to the over populated are. I feel the new development is crowded and the buildings are too tall. This has drastically impacted the landscape.

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

The buildings are TOO tall.

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

They where developing tall buildings.

Nice place to live

Verified Resident

Very nice designed new development and good community feel. It could do with more facilities which are slowly coming. The transport links need to be improved for the number of residents in area. The new Triple Two coffee place is nice. The airport can be too noisy.

 

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

Nice area to live, nice being by river, needs some more shops and restaurants

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

The airport is expanding and too much heavy industry nearby, that the pub isn’t opening until 2020, DLR is very busy in mornings

What is the best feature of your home:

The view of the park and river. The location. Its generally quiet at night.

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 tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

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.

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.
