Great value, great transport, the ultimate young professional / young family location

Review Date Nov 2018

Great value apartment, well laid out with a decent specification especially for the purchase price. Customer service was excellent including the after care service from Telford Homes. The concierge team are brilliant as well, very friendly, bright, interesting people, creating a great impression for the development. Roof terrace in the summer is nice and under utilised. Transport links are unrivalled you can get ‘anywhere’ in 30 mins. The construction did not allow for greats acoustic insulation. Luckily all our neighbors were fairly understanding and kept steps light and noise down.

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

Westfield on your doorstep as well as the more affordable Stratford Centre, which we used for our regular shop. There is still a lack of independent pubs and restaurants with atmosphere and quality food but when anywhere in central London is literally under 30 mins away it didn’t really matter. Olympic Park is great and maturing nicely, Hackney Wick and the bars and restaurants make for a great night, lunch or breakfast out. Area can be rough around the edges at time and very busy around the station but never had any direct issues. The high street is undergoing investment and transformation this coupled with new two traffic calming system will further benefit the local area. The area also has some amazing nursery, primary and secondary schools.

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

Nothing, the flat did what it said in the tin, was great value and is likely to further benefit from the surrounding regeneration.

Great location but with a few problems

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2019

Build quality is great with no major issues over the last 2-3 years with the exception of a few flats experiencing water leakage issues.

However, management is poor. The roof terrace was completely mis-sold and was almost permanently shut through most of 2017 due to “much needed repairs”. Central boiler occasionally faces issues and the lifts often go out of services, sometimes both, leaving those living in the higher floors stranded if they’re unable to use the stairs.

One other important point to mention is the broadband monopoly we have which is with BT. We have asked countless times to get Hyperoptic or Virgin to perform their surveys but the landlord has outright refused with no proper reason provided.

Perfect location – within walking distance to two shopping centres

Overall good

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

The design of the building is great, very modern. The layout of the flat is very logical and it flows around which I really like. A slight downside is that there is not a massive community feel in the building as there are some students who only live here part of the year and a few foreign owners who do not reside here.

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

Transportation is accessible, there is local shopping area, a theater. Traffic could be be better but on the other hand there are nice local restaurants and a brilliant library.

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

If I had know that unex owned both the land and the building then I might not have bought a flat here.

Nice flat but quite hot

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

In terms of layout of the flat itself is very good. There is lots of heat through the windows which makes the apartment very hot but this may be because we are on the side facing the sun. The flat is a standard size but the building doesn’t have a gym.

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

The area is diverse, there is a mix of people here. It is very well connected and close to restaurants.

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

The management has a lot of links so it is very difficult to find out who to contact for which problem.

New build but with problems

Review Date Apr 2019

Very good design and architecture and fittings. Poor management company, seem to prefer the developers than tenants. South facings flats are too hot (wrong windows fitted). Serious problems with lifts – there are only two lifts which break down quite often. The views are fantastic.

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

Stratford developing very well. Newham recycling is rubbish. But the Westfield centre is fab.

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

Transport is so good.

Unex tower, great for shopping and transport links

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Mar 2021

The building looks good and with all the glass floor to ceiling windows is very bright and airy. The management company generally ensures any issues lifts, bins etc are fixed promptly and updates residents with what is happening to these issues

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

The development is just a stones throw away from Westfield so it’s really convenient for shopping and eating out

It’s also right next to Stratford station with tube, bus, train and DLR links so it’s really easy to commute from the development

I guess the only thing if you live on the lower levels may be noise from the traffic, also not all flats will have parking spaces and you will need to obtain a council parking space as an alternative

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

The ceiling to floor buildings let in a lot of light so we needed to add in extra curtains to block out the light

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

We had responses from the management company to deal with issues fairly promptly and they communicate via email of any current general building issues

Convenient location allows excellent access to the mall and through public transport to the city. Direct connection to the airport. Newly built with well quality. Concierge service is great. Unfortunately no gym.
