The Forge is an all round excellent place to live. Great city location, building is great and always secure! Staff are always friendly and helpful! Residents are friendly and everyone gets along well. The communal area is always clean and tidy and a great place for everyone to chill out in.

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

Love the fact that all the bars local and plenty of restaurants around! And a personal favourite is the fact I work right next door! Nothing really that I dislike about the area!

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

One of my friends lived here so I pretty much knew everything about this place!

The team at the Forge are all stars. They are friendly and always happy to help. The renting process was super easy and every time I have questions they are always answered promptly. The parcel system is great. The buildings are gorgeous and seem built to a high standard. A few things could be improved – e.g. you can smell cookings from other flats at times which seems to be coming from the exhaust fan. The location is excellent, especially for commuters. Of course the downside is the noise from trains/metro but one gets used to it. So far it has been a positive experience and I appreciate the effort the team puts into organising events. This is really renting life made easier!

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

Lots of shops, cafés, great transport links, close to Quayside and great for walks along the river.

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

I can’t think of anything. Helen did the viewing and gave a thorough overview of the buildings and how renting works here. She answered all the questions I had. And was very patient with me and all my questions. I decided to rent here as soon as I arrived. There were unexpected things when I moved in.

The building is ideally located in the city centre. The availability of a 24 hour concierge provides both convenience and the added benefit of security. The communal areas and the apartments themselves are also finished to a very high standard. On site staff are friendly and helpful and the building is pet friendly.

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

There could do with being a shop a little closer, also maybe less than ideal for anyone with children.

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

The electricity consumption for the flat seems quite high, although this could have just been a longer than normal winter.

Station is so close with the station also having convenience shops such as Sainsbury’s and M&S within a 5 minute walk. Town centre is also very close as is the picturesque quayside waterfront.

The weekly run events such as football, quiz and food tasting.

A perfect city apartment for professionals!

Review Date Aug 2019

Being new to the city the Forge is perfect – the location is central but tucked away from any lairy nightlife, the flat is set up for an easy move & the concierge & gym facilities are lovely!

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

I love how central yet quiet it is – literally everything is on the doorstep (including access to national rail links) but it doesn’t feel that I’m in a city centre as soon as I step out the door.

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

That there’s no storage under the bed!

Redefining City Living

Review Date Aug 2019

Having relocated to Newcastle and moved into The Forge at its opening, I have witnessed the development of this incredible residential complex. What first appeared as a modern, well-designed building concept have emerged into somewhere I would regard as a beautiful home. The building offers stylish and spacious apartments with standard appliances that are the perfect place to relax after a busy day. The additional facilities (such as the gym and communal areas) are nothing short of exceptional and to have these close at hand is an added benefit. What’s more, the staff supporting the operation of the building are incredibly welcoming and make living at The Forge a truly enjoyable experience. While the cost of rent here is more on the premium side, for this standard of accommodation in such a prime location it is a price worth paying.

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

Close proximity to Newcastle Quayside, Central Train Station and place of work.

Good experience overall

Review Date Aug 2019

I am really enjoying living in the Forge – everything is new and modern, and the gym and lounge facilities are excellent. I also really enjoy the social activities that are organised for residents. It’s generally quiet at night too with no noisy neighbours. I also love the fact that pets are allowed.

My one criticism would be that overall, space is a bit short – in particular there is a lack of storage space (an inbuilt utility cupboard for hoovers/cleaning equipment etc would have been useful). Considering the small size of the apartments, the cost of renting is also quite steep. Overall however, I feel that the quality of the apartment and the facilities makes up for this.

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

The Forge is approximately 6-7 minutes walk from Central Station which is really handy. It’s also just a minute’s walk from the Tyne, allowing for easy access to walks along the Quayside. Unfortunately there are no large supermarkets within walking distance which is a bit of a pain.

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

There is no gas supply for the apartments at the Forge – the heating is run off electricity which is actually quite expensive.

The Forge is an ideal location, superb design and build quality. Only thing lacking is parking however it’s a city centre location, so close to transport links.

The facilities are great and always resident events held. Forge employees are all world class also in terms of customer service.

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

Plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and transport links nearby. Yards away from Central Station.

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

The lights dim. The mirrors are heated. Game changer.

Close to Central Station and city centre, shops and amenities near by, only downside is the frequent trains passing by, which isn’t really much of an issue.
