The Wullcomb is a Build to Rent development managed by Way of Life, located in the heart of Leicester. The building offers 297 apartments with a mix of spacious Manhattan studios alongside one and two-bedroom apartments. Residents have the option of choosing a furnished or unfurnished apartment. Additionally, there are a wide range of facilities and amenities on site. These include 24h concierge, secure car park and cycle storage, a rooftop terrace, a shared kitchen and dining space with modern lounge and a private theatre room.
24/7 concierge whom are all very helpful. The only down side is when there are some agency staff they struggle with aspects. The rooftop is lovely but has been out of use for 6 months and no rent payments have been compensated for this considering a premium is being paid for these lovely facilities
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
This is a lovely apartment block located right in the heart of the city centre. Everything is walking distance so very convenient. Unfortunately there are a lot of noisy students that wake up and start their day in the early hours of the morning. So beware banging on walls, the smell of smoking in corridors and loud music at 1am isn’t uncommon. I was made to believe this is a professional let only and very few students but speaking to a resident when I moved in made me realise this is a student let for sure. Disappointing.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I wish I hadn’t been told by the manager that they only allow very few vetted students to live here. There are more students than professionals and believe me, they let it be known. Loud music playing early hours of the morning, banging on walls just for fun (not sure why this is fun) no regard for neighbours. Really disappointing as the Wullcomb has potential to be the best place in the city!
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
With a lot of persistent emails, things eventually get sorted which is really disappointing as this aspect let’s the wullcomb down
