I would thoroughly recommend The Silk District to anyone i know. The development far exceeds any other development in the surrounding area and is truly a one of a kind. The facilities are incredible and everyone who works on the development goes out of their way to be friendly and answer any questions you might have.

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

Whitechapel is a vibrant area that is full on interesting people, events and amenities. The Silk District, although very different to the surrounding area, fits in perfectly.

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

The amenities available far exceed what i expected, in both availability and quality.

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

have yet to require any help from the building management

Amazing property and location

Review Date Dec 2021

Lived here for almost 6 months and have never had any issues with noise from other tenants, only from building work outside but the windows are very good at keeping the noise to a minimum.
Facilities and staff members are great, couldn’t recommend enough!

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

Very good transport links (5 min walk to Whitechapel station and 10 min walk to Bethnal Green station).
Quiet area with the occasional ambulance siren as the building is near a hospital, but only ever bothers me when walking outside, never when I’m in my flat.
Bin collection is easy. Just need to take recycling and other rubbish down to the designated bin collection room on ground floor whenever needed.

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

I wish I knew how good the transport links were

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

Whenever we had issues (heating) we just emailed and issue was sorted within a few days

Great development – look forward to seeing what the future holds

Review Date Oct 2021

The design and facilities are great, and the management team have done well to space out new arrivals. The gym and cinema room are both lovely – though it would have been great if there were more frequent gym inductions, as it was difficult to book one. It is also proving quite difficult to book an evening slot at less than 6 weeks’ notice. Concierge team are all fantastic and very friendly!

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

The development has a great location – very close to the station, shops, an independent cinema, pubs etc, but without being right on the main road. There is some traffic on the street, but this can’t usually be heard from inside if the doors and windows are closed.

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

I wish we had known more about street parking availability – there’s not lots, but it is freely accessible on the weekends.

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

Concierge team are very responsive to all queries and issues via email and phone!

Great location, high quality development– but still a tiny way to go

Great building management an facilities. My only complaints would be that there is only one gym induction a month, that the units do not have doorbells (and that they are not allowed to be installed), and the lobby design looks like student halls.

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

I love the vibrant, diverse community and the excellent transport links. Excited for Crossrail too!

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

That units did not come with doorbells

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

Yes, they’re always very eager to help and very transparent

Silk District – overall positive view of living here for 3 months.

Review Date Oct 2021

Gym is excellent. Cinema is a waste as wouldnt use it. Swimming pool and / or spa would have been more useful.
Mariola in customer care is excellent – always quick and responds quickly to questions.
Luca, kristijian and the management team are fantastic; really helpful, welcoming and always on hand.
It would be great as a resident of 105 aparment to access the building from sidney street like some of the blocks do, rather than walk round the back which we have to do.
Visitors do find it hard to find the concierge desk as its behind sidney street and the sign posting is not helpful.
Parking for visitors – even with paid meters is virtually impossible.
The postcode / flat numbers are not recognised for all websites which can be frustrating.

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

It would be useful to have a variety of shops available on site eg local bakery, organic fruit/veg, coffee shop, zero waste shop.
good to have more variety of local restaurants rather than fried chicken shops. Parking at the front of the building is impossible. traffic noise outside is noisy but in the flats yiu cant hear it.

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

Would be good to know whats happening with the remaining construction around our building, on site and surrounding buildings. As there are no regular updates or progress on whats happening.
There is also no update on parking access to and from my block to my parking space underground which is dissapointing.

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

We raised the issue that our sky tv signal had satellite interference. Problem has still not been resolved.

Comfortable Home

Review Date Sep 2021

Design is very good, can fit in with the nearby buildings. The house is big and definitely worth the price . Many space for storage and for placing furniture. Cater to home owners needs. More over the building management team is very supportive, they response to your email and follow up on all our building issues, even if it’s very minor. There is also good communication between occupiers and property management, via email and post.

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

Convenient, many shops nearby. People are generally nice. Good bin collection system. Haven’t seen any antisocial behaviour or traffic noise.

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

for the floorplans, more detailed dimension can be given so one can easily find suitable furniture for their home.

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

Yes and all of them are solved in an effective and timely manner.

The brilliant place place to live

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

I think the parking is a bit annoyed which can be more organized. Besides I am looking forward to more social activities nearby or within the neighborhood. I have few friends here and want to know more about people in the same building but I am a bit shy. The food and delivery service can be more organized as well since there are too many doors for delivery guys to open

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

The building is magnificent and the service is brilliant. It is quite convenient for shopping. The largest sainsbury in London city is just 5 minutes walk away. Neighbors are friendly as well. Most importantly, the gym is great for me to have one hour work out everyday and it is just on the ground floor for free! I do enjoy living here.

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

The air flow and heating system. I bought a big desk before moving in but the problem is I can just set it below the air tunnel so it is quite cold in winter

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

Quite quickly and efficiently. I used to switched off my fridge when I went to travel for weeks. The management team just response to my inquiry quickly and solve it.

Highly recommend Silk District E1 to any young professionals

Review Date Aug 2021

The development is great and has excellent facilities. Our concierge team are always super helpful and friendly. We have a large balcony that overlooks the central jardín plus a Juliet balcony on our main bedroom which we love. The flat also has loads of space and there’s a communal bike room in the block for all the residents.

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

Love the area, mostly families and young professionals. Some great pubs about and only a 20 min walk to shoreditch. Also a short cycle to Victoria Park – the best park in London!

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

The royal London hospital is behind the development and they have an air ambulance that takes off from the roof quite frequently and is pretty loud. But the noise doesn’t last long and the flat is fairly soundproof with the doors shut.

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

Yes we haven’t had many issues but whenever we have it has been quick and easy to get in touch with building management and they resolved the issue swiftly.

Fantastic development

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2021

Fanstastic development – brand new, modern and clean. Cinema and gym facilities make all the difference. Concierge are super lovely and really helpful. The building noise can be problematic, especially as it takes place on Saturday too. However triple glazing makes it easier to block out.

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

Great accesible area to surrounding places eg shoreditch. Free parking available outside working hours which is very useful for visitors.
Immediate local area is very busy and vibrant but doesn’t have the best selection of restaurants/bars

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

Wish we’d have known about the extent of the building work

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

We haven’t had any issues aside from keys from the postbox and they dealt with it very quickly.

Great building with lots of great facilities and friendly helpful staff. It’s very convenient having a gym in the building and I’ve enjoyed using the cinema and garden spaces with friends. Very happy here and would definitely recommend it to others looking to move.

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

Great location, with lots of amenities on the door step. It’s also located very close to the tube station and near to two cycle super highways which makes it very easy to get around.

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

How long the rest of the building work is going to take..

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

We haven’t had any issues but in general they have been very helpful.
