Convenient and safe

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2018

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 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.

 

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

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

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

To be perfectly frank with you there is nothing really that I wish I had known before I moved in.

What is the best feature of your home:

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.

 

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.

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 managemen.

Neat and modern

Review Date Sep 2019

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.

 

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.

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 thencity is bpvery thing, gargelling noise from upstairs, flooring could be better.

Transportation, shops, central london, what i dislike nosiy, busy weekends.

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.

A slice of exclusivity in the heart of authentic London

A slice of exclusivity in the heart of authentic London

Review Date Mar 2018

The Perspective Building at 100 Westminster Bridge Road was once home to the MI6 headquarters, Century House. That was before developers Crest Nicholson transformed it with a GBP 50 million redevelopment which was completed in 2003. Now, with a bold glass and steel exterior and distinctive waved roof, it houses around 180 apartments with a mixture of one, two and three bedrooms. And as soon as you step inside and The Perspective Building makes a big first impression with a canopied entrance and a five-story glass atrium.

The apartments at The Perspective Building are a similar story – well-proportioned spaces with modern appliances and striking views of the skyline from every window. Kevin Spacey used to live in the Penthouse here while he was artistic director of the Old Vic theatre just down the road, and as you’d expect, this space commands the most impressive views of all. In terms of extra features, there’s a 24-hour concierge available to residents, plus many apartments have secure underground parking.
Location-wise, The Perspective Building is opposite Lambeth North station on the Bakerloo line, which puts Oxford Circus just a nine-minute journey away. A five-minute walk, meanwhile, gets you to Waterloo station, so hubs like Canary Wharf are easily commutable for work.

As for the area immediately around the building, it’s an authentic living, breathing London neighbourhood. Lower Marsh street market – one of London’s last-remaining street markets – is packed with one-off shops and independent stores, as well as market traders and street food stalls. There are plenty of development projects in progress, but the area has so far managed to retain a real sense of its authentic roots.

For entertainment, both the South Bank and the West End are within easy reach, and there’s understandably a strong creative scene. The Old Vic is a five-minute walk away, and the London Eye is walkable in around 15 minutes. Continue walking along the South Bank from here and Tate Modern, the National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe are all at your disposal.
