An Excellent Place to Live

Kieran D (Tenant)

Verified Resident

Feb 2023

Building layout is nice, there is a courtyard section in the middle with tables and chairs, rentable barbeques and pizza ovens. The apartments are sizeable and good value. Had a few issues when we moved in but staff made arrangements and the maintenance team quickly sorted them out. Management are very friendly and are willing to socialise and help out with any issues. The community at the forum is great too - I have made many friends since moving in, mostly down to the events that management put on! Seems like any reason they have, management throws a party. Christmas, Chinese new year, valentine's, Easter, Halloween, etc. Lovely initiatives. Lots of gated parking spaces available at a charge (around £100pcm, standard for city centre but still pricey!)

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Love living at the forum! Local amenities include Tesco and a wide variety of restaurants and other shops. It's a 5-10,minute walk from New Street Station.

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

Management have responded to all issues raised. There are a few minor issues I have raised in recent weeks that haven't been sorted yet, but anything urgent is handled immediately.

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

I wish I had known how great the community is - it would have made finding somewhere to live much quicker and easier! The bin collections happen at very early hours, and the apartments are usually very hot. Definitely worth leaving your windows open for a couple of hours before bed.

Really modern apartment in the heart of Birmingham

The design of the building is very modern and clean and minimalistic. The flats are bright and airy. It does however get quite cold in the winter. Facilities are complete. Love that there is a gym though not all the equipments are working sadly. Lovely people who work on the team

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Lovey common spaces, good facilities. Very strategic location in central Birmingham close to Bullring, Chinatown and New Street station Parking is a little expensive though as it is in the city centre and guest parking is now difficult to get Love that it is dog friendly!

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

Quick to respond though sometimes does need reminding

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

Signal is not so good in the ground floor in the corridor but eventually it will connect to the wifi

I think the design is very good. I like the layout of the room. Living here bring a feeling to me like I stay at home. The facilities are completed. I think the building management and property management are good in general, but some times the efficiency is very low.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

It located in a excellent location that why I choose this apartment. Though it has some noisy, it can not be avoid. living here I think it bring convenience to my life. There are many restaurants near by.

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

When I meet the problem, the worker in the reception response positivity. They give me some advice that help me to solve problems.

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

Before I moved in, I hope that I can know how to deal with my bills.These work can be finished in advance that reduce the wasted time.
