Silver Works is a residential development from Galliard Homes, previously used during the First World War by the Royal Air Force. Today, it’s a collection of apartments, suites and townhouses, all in a central location in the North London ‘opportunity area’ of Colindale. Colindale tube station, serviced by the Northern line, is close to the development, as is the M1, the A41 and the Brent Cross shopping mall.

Convenient, comfortable and good food

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

Transport here is really good, were a short walk from colindale station on the northern line so we have really easy access to central london.
Shopping is great here, there are absolutely loads of shops to visit for basically anything you need.
parking issues are not great here, there is no guest parking but more importantly we were sold the apartment on the idea that we had a parking space with the ability to charge an electric car but when we arrived we found out there are actually no electric spaces here so we were lied to essentially.
Another thing we were lied to about was delivery, first we were told two years ago that we could move into our flat in the coming January, a year later we still hadn’t moved… we had to wait until earlier this year to move in which is hard as we now have a newborn.
Loads of things have broken here, and they break very often but the problem is that we can’t fix them ourselves, we have to call building management to fix it every time and although they’re quick, they clearly don’t fix things properly as they continue to have to come back.

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

The bin storage isnt emptied often so it stinks and there are loads of flies around which is disgusti g.
i think its very convenient, there are loads of shops, morrisons, a chinese food market, mcdonalds, kfc and loads of clothimg shops to go to.

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

We were promised the electric charging point for our car that does not exist, we were t9ld that our flat would have a lot of things that it didnt actually come with when we moved in actually such as a breakfast table.

OK house but hate the area

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

The house is good but there should be a bigger sink upstairs. Also the lack of mixer taps shows bad design. There’s a lot of antisocial behaviour going on around here. There’s a lot of youths around the area loitering around and doing drugs. I feel that the area is very unsafe for me and my kids especially during the nights, and the police and community officers are not doing enough at all There’s a bike storage room that has been broken into. There’s a half an hour parking limit for visitor to unload there however the ticket officer gives out tickets indiscriminately, even if the vehicle has been there well below that time. The ticket officer has been abusing her position and residents since I moved here, and I believe is quite unacceptable, another point that there isn’t enough facilities for children , with all concrete development with inadequate playgrounds. In fact there has been a child that has been injured near the playground. This is why I don’t let my kids play outside .

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

The area Colindale is OK with shops, but theres a 15 minute walk to the trainstation which is annoying, I drive so thank God I don’t need to walk that every day

I wish I knew about the trouble the area and devlopment was going through

Quiet and a good place for kids

Review Date Jul 2019

The design of my flat is very modern and sleek, and I like how spacious it is as well. The community here is great, I love that all the kids are safe to play together.
Everywhere is well maintained, the grass is cut weekly and the streets are cleaned twice a week.

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

My problem is with the fact that the car park is too small, there is no room for guest parking here.
i really like the fact that it is so safe here, i bave no problems letting my children play on the little parks on the development.

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

The fact that there is no gues parking.

It is okay

Review Date Jul 2019

Modern and spacious inside, it came furnished, which is good and bad
The building management isn’t so great, you have to put a lot of effort in to make them come out, we’ve had problems with hot water that took loads to time for them to fix which is bad. When I called they were very rude.
The park is very nice but they could grow more flowers around the houses themselves, although I do think that they’re planning on growing more.

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

Parking for visitors is a bit of an issue but overall the area is great! Good transport, shopping and greenery.

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

I do really like it here and didn’t find any big surprises before moving in.

Really nice apartment and great accessibility

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

I really like my apartment – it’s open-plan, modern and spacious. Everything works really well and the building management are quick at fixing things. It’s really quiet and peaceful even though there are lots of families and children. Another bonus is that there is underground parking – this is particularly good when it’s raining or snowing and the parking is available to all residents.

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

I really like how accessible it is- there are lots of stores nearby and a big Morrison’s a few minutes walk away. I also like how close to the tube it is. I dislike that it’s on a main road.

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

There is a school right next door – not an issue but would have been helpful to know

Nice area and apartment

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The development is nice – there are lots of families and children which is not bad but I suppose something to be aware of. The development is well set out and clean. My apartment is nice – it’s very warm as it’s in the middle of the block which is great (also saves me a lot on utilities which is a bonus). The building maintenance was a bit shoddy with the finishing touches such as painting the stairwell properly.

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

It’s a good neighbourhood – there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby and it’s close to the tube.

Perfect place for me

The development is really nice, it’s new, spacious and all the facilities came in brand new with no problems whatsoever, had some initial problems with broadband and electricity but resolved that issue pretty quickly. The building management are great and responsive to my needs. I really have no complaints, i’m really happy living here!

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

Colindale is idea since its close to where I work and has many local supermarkets, and many local nurseries for my little one. I would say that the area is pretty safe also.

None so far no surprises when I moved in and everything is great!

Apartment is good, facilities are good. Best Internet connection I’ve seen with very high speed. All the apartments came furnished so you can move and settle at home immediately. I moved in new and all the facilities were excellent and of top specification. Building management have been awesome with any needs and questions I have were answered promptly

Really good afraid with mixed culture and peI please, very safe and easy walking distance to shops and fast food restaurants.

The apartment is great – it’s good quality, spacious and well-designed. It is also a very quiet place to live. It is mainly families and young people who live here. The neighbourhood is very safe.
I would definitely recommend this as a place to live – it is really well-equipped and very easy to get to (only 10 minutes from tube station).

Like how quiet it is, very convenient, restaurants and shops are ok

Great apartment, a solid buy

Review Date Jul 2019

The apartments really nice and the surrounding development is also well kept and safe. My apartment is spacious, comfy and comes with a balcony. I moved in new with some delay but had no issues with quality, with all facilities being in top condition. A good mixture of council and private tenants which makes diversity. Good management with all my problems sorted in reasonable time.

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

Up and coming area, nice residential developments with a growing number of restaurants, but still needs to grow some more. Transport links are overall ok, however north west London hasn’t got the best links to get to north London.

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

None at all everything is as expected and had no surprises
