There are great transport links in central London, which is great for travelling around to far places.

There are great transport links in central London, which is great for travelling around to far places.

However, there is poor internet connections within this development, which makes it very difficult to surf the internet.

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

I like that there are so many shops around.

I do not like that there are litter problems in the area.

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

I wish that there was better internet connection within my place.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I wish that we were on a higher floor level.

I also wish that the concierge would remain a longer amount.

Overall a great place to live and a lovely area!

Verified Resident

Review Date Apr 2021

Design is okay. The wide hallways are great. The windows feel dangerous because they open at waist height. The kitchen surfaces could be a nicer finish. Inside walls need to be thicker. Property management is difficult to get in contact with and takes long periods to deal with issues. We were disappointed to find that there was no window cleaning service for us on the 11th floor (FAR to dangerous to reach and do it ourselves). When property management does arrive to solve problems they are fantastic. Maybe residents also need more guidance on correct bin use?

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

Deptford is a great place to live. There are local amenities, bars, pubs, theatres and transport links within easy walking distance. Train and DLR not loud at all. Parking is expensive on the development and put me off bringing my car.

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

The thickness of the walls.

What is the best feature of your home:

The absolutely incredible and unobstructed views of the whole of London. Not seen a view like it.

Diverse area, poor management

I do not like that the management is not helpful and that they do not support the upkeep of the building.

Review Date Apr 2020

Some elements of design are good. Such as a roof terrace and balancing space. Poor design of bin store leaves the lobby area smelling. Building management is poor and managers do not respond to comments. Not having a concierge for more hours of the day is a problem.

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

Great transport links. Variety of shops and bars. A good balance of old and new.

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

Property management are unhelpful.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Wouldn’t change anything about the design of the property.

Good modern development – functional and well located

Review Date May 2022

Modern buildings which are well designed and well equipped. Basic features e.g. washing machine but everything works well. Communal bike store downstairs. Lack of on site property / building management has led to some issues with theft e.g. parcels from communal areas.

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

Great location – very close to Deptford High Street and train station and also walking distance to Greenwich. Off street parking available to purchase. Very occasional noise from other properties but to be expected living in a development.

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

The flats are part of a development so expect some noise from others.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

I personally have not raised issues recently, but there has been some issues with theft in the development. Management appear to have tried to rectify this and have provided email updates and surveys, however this could have been better managed e.g. upgraded security

A fairly good area

Review Date Aug 2019

I really like the colourful look of the flats on the outside as it is very friendly looking and stands out visually.

The facilities are pretty good such as the leisure centre I use sometimes on my off days to relax.

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

The area is very noisy with house parties and messy with litter.

I like it being near station as it is convenient for me to travel regularly in quick time.

The flat layout is really good

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

The concierge does not work on weekends and is not particularly effective.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Nothing as I am already satisfied with where I live.
