Well connected area and good facilities

Verified Resident

Comfortable flat. The building management could be improved. It takes between 3 to 5 days to responds to flat -related enquieries. The complaints have never got answered. There is a gym and a bike rack, the concierge receives the packages for you. The flat has got it all, I love the balcony and the views.

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

Well connected area, with good selection of shops and restaurants. Sainsbury’s is the nearest supermarket, located by the tube station. There must be a bigger grocery store nearby, we had a Tesco in Kensington but it has been shut.

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

The sky lounge is not open 24/7.

Central location

Verified Resident

Its a very nice apartment and its spacious. I like the design and the quality of the finish if the building is very good. The gym however isn’t as good as I had hoped and there isn’t any air conditioning either.

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

Quick to get to most parts of the city but there isn’t really much to do entertainment wise

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

Nothing really, just that you have to pay for parking here

Like the gym nearby but the area isn’t as clean I’d have liked.

E&C

Verified Resident

Overpriced and driven by chinese and other asian students who pay a severe premium, driving prices north. Actual space is ok, views are grewt, quality leaves a lot to be desired. Expect price hike as soon as capacity is reached in the building and a renewal is due. We were asked for 12%

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

Addressed to either hipsters or high end foreign students. Ok options to drink and eat, supermarkets are geared towards students

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

Termination for convenient and break clause for moving early

The area isn’t as good as the development

Verified Resident

The building itself is great, no complaints really. The design is beautiful and really worth my money in my opinion. The concierge is really helpful when we need them too. The only negative is that we can’t smoke on the balcony which I think is a little absurd since it’s my own balcony and I should be able to use it how I like.

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

The local area is really nice, and there’s a lot facilities close! I like that pret is close and the park outside is lovely too however it can attract a few hooligans at times.

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

The area can get a little busy and noisey at times.

Great apartments, terrible management

Verified Resident

The flats are really nicely finished, spacious and have great views. However, the management team dont provide good customer service and concierge isn’t always reliable. Its also pretty expensive especially after high annual rent renewals.

Transport links are great – elephant and castle station is round the corner and is easy to get around london

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

Wish I’d known the management team were unreliable.

There is a lot of space in the apartment and it is very sleek and modern looking. The balcony is nice but rumour has it you are not allowed to smoke there. The deliveries are on time and the concierge is helpful with looking after parcels.

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

Easy to get to the City however it does get a bit rowdy sometimes.

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

That the parking is very expensive

Awesome building aesthetics!

Verified Resident

The facilities include a sky lounge, on the 45th floor, a gym and a concession off the council club’s membership located just opposite the building. The building management is super helpful, they have the right mindset when tackling residents’ complaints. The aesthetics of the building are amazing too.

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

Well connected area. Elephant & Castle tube statiom is 2 minutes walking from here. The area is generally known for being a bit shady but I haven’t ever felt unsafe.

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

You can only move on the 1st day of the month.
