Close to work

The concierge doesn’t really agree with how the manager works as in his policies therefore not much communication with the people which is not good for us as a lot of people here have a few issues they would like to raise with the property manager.

 

What is the best feature of your home?

The best feature of my home would have to be the views of London.

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

Dislikenthe population, noise, like convenience to accessability to transportation close to work

Safe, close to the shops and station

I would have to say that living here has been great, there is nothing really that I do not like about the property itself, the area is safe and I feel secure living here, the concierge is fantastic they always do a great job.

 

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

To be honest I have not had any issues therefore I did not really had to deal with the building management.

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

Dislike the distance to my university campus, what I like in particular is that it is very close to all the shops and close to all the train lines.

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

To be honest I don’t quite understand the question I have everything I need, everything is great, there is no problems whatsoever.

Neat and modern

Overall the experience living here has been spectacular, the views are phenomenal especially for what I pay for, the neighbours are cool there is not any noisy loud people living here, it is very close to the station, very close by work which is great for me.

 

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

Two things, one of windows that looks over the city is bothering me, gargling noise from upstairs, flooring could be better.

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

Dislike, not much to dislike aboit the area to be fair has got everything i need, transportation system is great

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

To be with honest with you the one thing that I wish I had known before I moved into my property is that one of my windows is actually quite thin so I do not really get quite the whole view of the skyline of london.

Close to the station, beatiful view of london

Well the property itself is great I would have to say the quality is good and soundproof so I do not get disturbed at all from the noise downstairs that much, however the building management is quite bad because they took a while to respond to the flooring problem.

The best feature of my home would have to be the views of the skyline of London

The overall building design and management is exceptional making it a great location to live in. I would say one problem with the building is that the elevators are faulty and always take a long time to fix.

The apartment is generally great and doesn’t have any faults.

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

The area has excellent transport links and the local restaurants are exceptional.

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

One thing i wish i’d known before i moved in was that the local ambulances make a lot of noise.

Convenient and safe

Verified Resident

What I like about it is it’s very convenient, we have a 24 house uniformed concierge to pick up parcels, let you or your guests in and offer security and assistance. I feel very safe and secure due to the key fob system and single entrance. Lots of my friends live in the building, so there is a good community feel. It has very good transport links as it is near both Lambeth North and Waterloo station, so I can easily get to work or wherever I want to be. The waste disposal system is another plus, rather than a room it’s taken right from outside our door.

Please tell us what you like and/or dislike about this location:
Very close to the Southbank, lots to see and do there, very lively

Please share one thing (or more) that you wish you had known before you moved in: 
Concierge will get to know you individually

The best of both worlds

The Perspective Building is the best of both worlds – you get the exclusivity of a private, prestigious apartment with the authenticity of London in all its glory. It doesn’t have any amenities as such – like a gym or a supermarket – but everything you need is on the doorstep,m meaning the service charge is cheaper as you don’t have to pay for all that! I love the fact you can walk down to Lower Marsh Street Market for lunch or shopping, and it’s about a ten-minute walk to Waterloo station. It’s not the best looking building from the outside, and I dare say the locals aren’t huge fans, but if you want luxury and location combined – this place has it.
