Best development in Old Street / City Road area

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2020

This is by far the best development out of the various ones that have sprung up around Old Street Roundabout and City Road. Not only is it the best location it has the best design both externally and internally – the floor plates of the apartments are very well thought out and take in the curve of the building in a really cool way – they are not just rectangles with the kitchen in a corridor like the other local developments I’ve viewed. Sound proofing is good. The reception area is nice, large and set back from the main road with entrance via it’s own podium. Mount Anvil pushed the boat out on the spec for this as it was their first tower so lots of touches you won’t find at other developments like heated anti mist mirrors and feature tiling in the bathrooms, custom front doors with carvings, feature radiators etc. Very nice communal facilities and very good building management with 24/7 front desk. Comfort cooling is very welcome too!

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

Very central area but flats are quiet. You can walk everywhere (including Barbican Centre – best Cinema in London!) and because of all the redevelopment in the area lots of new bars, restaurants and shops being added to the already very decent choices.

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

The logistics of initially moving in were something I hadn’t thought about (eg would my furniture fit into the lift) , where do you park the removal truck etc) but front desk staff super helpful and now know all the tricks – top tip: do it super early when it’s quiet and easy to park 🙂

What is the best feature of your home:

Huge amount of natural light and like being high up! A lovely sanctuary to come home to in an otherwise very hectic and buzzing part of London. I get up early and the sun rises are amazing each day and a constant source of pleasure. . The 24/7 front desk is very useful for parcel delivery and also you can arrange dry cleaning through them. Gym is great for Cardio. Neighbours are lovely.

Review Date Jul 2019

I live in a studio on the 20th floor, with a great view of the city The appliances are quite new. There is a little division between the kitchen and the living room. We have a gym and a theatre room. The concierge is generally quite nice. I use the spa as well there is a sauna, a steam room and a jacuzzi inside. I pay £800 for a studio.

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

I like being close to the Northern line. I can go north to Camden town . A lot of places I can go to by walk or by bike.

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

There is an entrance on the other side of the road but it is not accessible for residents

Nice place

Review Date Jun 2019

The apartment is both modern and the design is great. There is a good enough amount of space where I live. The only inconvenience is that you cant get in through one door on one side, only the porter can. You can only go out that way which causes a bit of an inconvenience because you have to walk all the way round the building for one entrance.

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

I like that that there is plenty transport nearby which makes it convenient living here. It is both a Safe and clean area. However there isn’t a waitrose nearby, which is the supermarket I prefer shopping at, only a local sainsbury.

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

There was anything I didn’t know about the property before moving here.

Modern place to live but quite noisy

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The apartment is really modern and has a pleasant design. The main problem we have though is that the internet connection in our place is pretty weak and we know it’s not the internet provider itself because our neighbours have the same issue. Usually the strength of the connection is only 2 bars. The apartment is well built and the quality of furniture has been fine.

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

The area is pretty safe but I don’t think its clean at all. I find that the streets can be really noisy especially as you can hear really loud noises from the hospital nearby, especially because of the sirens. It’s well accessible with decent amount of transport links nearby.

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

We only found out much later after moving here that there is a home cinema downstairs which we have access too. I wasn’t told this though; I had to find out myself.

Nice area to live in

Review Date Jul 2019

It is a modern, safe building. There are CCTV cameras everywhere . I have been living here for 1 year now and have never had any problems with the safety and the security. It looks brilliant inside, the design is very modern. The facilities include a gym, a sauna and a home cinema, included in the rent. Lastly, the flat is bright , with a lot of light coming inside.

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

It is noisy. Close to Shoreditch. Good for going out. An underground station and buses around.

I didn’t know there is a home cinema inside.

Great place to live. The building design is modern. Spa/gym and screening room available. Concierge is great, always available to help. They have a great system to hold and notify you of deliveries. The shops and restaurants are great and increasing all the time. Great food delivery services at all times. A residents WhatsApp group keeps us up to date and entertained.

The management is not great. The development wasn’t built well. This is why I have leakages sometimes. The view is nice. There’s a sauna inside. We have a concierge which is very helpful for parcels. The design is good too.

The area is close to Shoreditch, plenty of good transport links around. There is nothing I dislike about the area.

The apartment is great and has been really nicely designed. The cooling system is also great. The concierge downstairs is always so s helpful. I’ve got quite alot of things so I do think its spacious enough. I’ve not had any problems before.

I like the fact that thie area is easily accessible as there are great transport links nearby even though the Northern line not so good. The area is both clean and safe but it can get really noisy.
