Amazing Views

Really love the views of the surrounding area, the quality of life has improved dramatically in recent years and the Royal Wharf is a welcome addition to the area and I am now a proud tenant of a 2 bed apartment.

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

There are wonderful community amenities all very local to the royal whalf, and all very affordable too. I have recently started eating at a wonderful new salad bar which opened on the dock last month.

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

I just wish I had purchased a higher flat, as i imagine the views would be incredible higher up. Also the floorboards in the above me are very creaky, that is the only downside to be honest. Apart from that I am very happy.

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 tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

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.

Pleased with my investment

I have invested in a number of developments within London but am always delighted with the quality and output by Ballymore. The design of this development is laid out well and once complete I am confident of the community that will grow here and the reflection this will have on pricing. My flat was quickly rented out through my agent – the feedback I have had is that this is proving to be a popular alternative to the busy Canary Wharf. My tenants have been living there for 5 months and whilst I don’t have much direct contact with them there have only been a few minor teething issues and they have already expressed interest in extending their lease beyond the initial one year term. Overall I am very pleased with Royal Wharf as an investment considering the challenges of the current market.

As per some of the other reviews there has been a delay with onsite facilities being opened but building work is happening at a pace and I believe by the end of 2018 that this will no longer be an issue.
