Great building and friend management at The Gessner

Review Date Jan 2022

Lovely building finished to a very high standard. Plenty of communal areas which is useful when working from home. Management are very helpful and always looking to go the extra mile, this highlights why living in a fully serviced apartment building is a very convenient and attractive option.

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

Great community with loads of amenities within the local area. Ample transport links with good accessibility to Central London.

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

This was initially a short term solution, however having enjoyed it so much I would moved in far sooner!

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

Always have a prompt response when a problem is raised with issues fixed within a short space of time.

The building is well furnished and modernly design with luxurious common areas and once in a while parties there. And the option to book it for yourself at no extra cost is something I haven’t seen ever and is great. A good show off to friends and colleagues.

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

It’s great around the building. Lots of big shops around ranging from Lidl to Tkmax at 1 min walking distance.

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

The building also has great gym and weekly fitness class. And I believe they would bring more things in future.

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

Yes. We raised a concern with curtains and they replaced every curtain for us.

Great facilities & great staff.
Special thanks to James & team for all the support during this year.
Not easy to find a place in London that balances so well the cost of living with the service provided.
Everything has top star quality, there was always a sense of continous improvements and it felt really good to stay at the Gessner during this last year.

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

Everything in hand. Supperb location.

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

Think it is always good to know what is around / nearby. I found everything at short distance, but it is something that is good/important to know before we go.

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

Yes. I asked for support with the energy, also with the windows and the support was always fast and effcient.

The Gessner is great, but surrounding is still under development

Review Date May 2022

Everything in the house is great, no complains at all. The design of communal areas is excellent. Especially I enjoyed having gatherings with friends on the terrace. In the apartment, I love the living room, it gets so much of the natural light. The kitchen appliances are also great and are of good quality as well (Bosch).

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

Short:
house, management, shared facilities are excellent. The only concern is the area outside, there is not much to do.

Long:
I have been staying at The Gessner for the last 4 months. From the beginning management were kind enough to answer any questions that I had and made the check in process very easy. During the first week of stay I had some problem with electricity, which was fixed just within 2 days, with no hustle. So no complains towards management or staff, they are great! I am still amazed by the quality of furniture inside of the house as well as in the shared facilities, everything is in the very high standard! Especially I love the gym, unlike in other houses, this gym is not made just to check the boxes, it is very well designed and has the best equipment from Technogym. About the apartment itself, it is also very well planned, very spacious and has lots of natural light!
Some people might concern about living right next to busy road and train stations, but so far never noticed any noise from the windows. But if you open them, then yes, noise is noticeable.

The only concern that I have is the surrounding area, there is literally not much to do except like groceries. It is not something that Gessner management are trying to hide, after all you can just walk around the area and decide for yourself. I would assume that cafes and restaraunts are going to open up sometime in summer 2022, once the surrounding developments will finish. Until then, taking Victoria to Soho, or train to Shoreditch will do 🙂

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

Some people might concern about the Council Tax, because it is in the band D. But again, it is something you can look it up or ask before moving.

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

I had an issue with electricity during my first week of stay. They fixed it in two days with no hustle. They are great!

The building is very new and well-managed, all the facilities are very above the average standard I would say, and everywhere is clean and bright. The staff is very nice and helpful. The only problem is the lifts are not always working properly and sometimes it causes a bit headaches.

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

The building is in a developing area but the train/tube station is very close and convenient, and supermarkets and fast food restaurants are within easy reach.

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

There is a construction site in the west and it sometimes can be noisy for someone who is sensitive to the sound.

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

They responded quickly by email or sometime also in person.

The building itself is beautiful, with the most needed facilities like gym, common spaces, 3 roof top terraces and just perfect design thought out.
The flats are spacious with lots of light and the amazing furnishings.
The staff is really friendly and helpful making the stay a pleasure.
I’m super happy I chose to stay here.

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

I wasn’t too sure about living in Tottenham before but this part is stunning. Close shops and a large variety of going out places. Placed on the main street and so close to the station, the commute is really easy and the walks home are nice.

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

I was skeptical about the area but I am coming to love it more and more.

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

The staff is quick to solve any issues that might come up.

First class design and perfect apartment

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Feb 2022

It’s perfect. It’s exactly what we were looking for.
A large and brand new apartment with a perfect design and top quality finishes. From the colours to the choice of furniture.
The common areas are also wide and the highlight for me is the kitchen and dining room on the top floor.
One point that I believe could be improved is how the common terrace space was used. I believe it could be better used by adding more chairs and tables so that we can work from there as soon as summer arrives because today there is only one bench.
Another thing that worries me is the Coffee place. They said that the cafe will be open to the public, I am worried about our security and whether anyone will be able to enter, because once in the cafe they will be in direct contact with the residents and the lifts, which can take them to our door. But I hope they thought about it.

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

The are is really nice! Tottenham Hale has a wide choice of restaurants, pubs, places to visit and a great metro and train line right outside your door. The street, despite being busy all day, does not disturb anything because the double-glazed window muffles the sound and makes everything quiet. Tottenham Hale Retail Park is very comfortable, full of options and we can do everything without having to go far, as it has Argos, Poundland, Tk Max and much more.

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

One thing I would like to understand is why I can’t hang things on the wall, being a long term contract, I have some furniture that I want to buy and I can’t because we can’t hang anything. I believe that a rule like “fix what to pierce” would solve it and could take it from our warehouse if I didn’t return it in perfect condition.

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

Nothing to complain, they helped us in everything and answered all our doubts from the first contact until the day of the move.

Hi Jhonatan,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review.

I am very pleased to hear that you are enjoying The Gessner and it is great to see you utilising the amenity spaces.

Once the café opens the only entrance will be via the courtyard for the general public. Once open we will also be closing the internal doors in between the hallway (lifts) and the café/lounge space so that access will only be available via a fob. I can explain this in person if you pop and see me at some stage.

Hopefully we have a sufficient amount of outdoor seating across the 3 terraces when it comes to the summer. We have 2 large tables on the 8th floor and 2 large tables with 8 chairs each on the 13th floor.

As always, you know where we are if you ever need anything.

James

With plenty of Built To Rent developments around the area, it was a tough decision to pick a place to live, however, once me and my partner visited the Gessner, the decision was made. The building design is so unique and sophisticated, inside the flats the design is not just aesthetically pleasant but it’s also perfectly functional, and with very well distributed space which makes the place so enjoyable to live in.
The added amenities, such as the gym, the terraces and the lounges adds extra points.

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

The Gessner is situated conveniently close to Tottenham Hale station, which connect it to any area of the city.
Nearby there’s a retail park with pretty much every day essentials and a short bus trip away there’s an IKEA and a Tesco Superstore for other shopping essentials. The building is in general, very well connected to many amenities.

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

I wish I knew about the construction works starting pretty early in the morning and ending quite late during the day. To be fair, the noise is close to none inside the flat and with the windows closed, but it can be a thing when in the balcony or the terraces

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

Always efficiently and in a timely fashion way, but most importantly in a very human way.

Review Date Feb 2022

Overall, the design of the building great. However I gave it a score of very good instead of excellent above because having lived here for six months, I have noticed a small annoyance with ergonomics in the kitchen area but that could be because I am short. Nevertheless, my flat is spacious and have everything I need for comfortable living. The roof garden is second to none. Facilities luxurious and fantastic. The management team do their job well but it is that extra mile that they take to support and the promptness to deal with issues that gets the excellent rating.

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

The transport links in Tottenham Hale is excellent! I feel safe walking home after getting off the night bus because the streets are well lit and I have so far not come across any anti-social behaviour. Although we are close to the road, I don’t hear the traffic. I chose this area because of its closeness to nature. Walk out of the Gessner to the right, there is Down Lane Park for morning walk and exercise. Then there is the Lea Valley. Retail park is good for essential shopping. Choice of restaurants are limited at the moment but with time, this will improve.

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

The possibility that planning permission could be granted to the building opposite for a change of use into a nightclub and live music venue.

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

Yes. I recently had a leak in the bathroom which I reported on the Saturday. Somebody come to assess the problem almost immediately and by the Tuesday the issue was resolved.
