My flat is really lovely

Verified Resident

Review Date Apr 2022

My flat is really lovely. Both the concierge and the property management are really helpful. They are also so fast to solve the problems. There is a work space on the ground floor and it is great for the people working from home! Luckily we have a cafe at the same place with work space so you can grab your coffee, take your seat and start working comfortably! Also the bakery is worth to try, they are so delicious! I definitely recommend here.

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

I like the environment here. There is a free parking space in front of the building, sometimes you can find places to park sometimes it is quite busy but overall it is okay. The area is pretty safe. I haven’t experienced any anti social behaviour around so far. Trains to London bridge/cannon street are often especially in the weekdays(every 5-6 minutes) and weekends (15 minutes). There is 2 station nearby, one is Newcross the other one is Deptford. Both stations are almost at the same distance.
If your flat located on the railway side sometimes you might feel noisy but if the windows are closed trust me you will not realise when trains passes. And there is no train during the night so it is not a problem at all.

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

Unfortunately there is no big supermarket around. The nearest is 20- 25 min walk( tesco extra in Canada water or Lidl) . It would not change my mind anyway i am so happy except this.

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

We had a problem with washing machine, and they solved the problem so quickly. So far so good.

Amazing vibe

Review Date Apr 2022

Love it! Perfectly designed with great facilities. Concierge are lovely and more than helpful. post room means we don’t need to worry about packages ever and so convenient. The shared work space is huge and the cafe is a bonus. Everyone is super friendly and we were added to the WhatsApp group straight away! Love it!

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

No shops super close – 5 min walk to a londis or 15 to tesco express so could be better. Parking not applicable for us. Not had a problem with bins yet. No really problems at all but do hear a lot of mopeds/bikes through the night as think we’re close to an online supermarket delivery warehouse.

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

How warm it can get in the flat – with floor to ceiling windows it can get very hot even with blinds closed all day

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

Too early to comment on this as we haven’t reported anything yet!

Vive Living is amazing!

Review Date Apr 2022

This development is amazing! The facilities- such as parcel room, bike store, cinema, dry cleaning service, and workspace- are so convenient, we’re just missing a gym lol! The conceirge, especially Akin, cannot be beaten; so welcoming and on hand to help with anything we need. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else 🙂

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

We are close to a number of mainline stations and bus routes, and just a 20 min walk into Greenwich centre.

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

At certain points in the year this development seems to be a student hotspot, which can be annoying as they tend to be messy in communal areas as don’t see this as a long term home like others do.

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

Always respond instantly, and everything is dealt with promptly and to a high standard.

overall excellent experience

Review Date Apr 2022

everything is to its highest standards. flats comes with latest built in appliances. good sizes flats. latest technologies such as underfloor heating. parcel room. we do have work from home area with a coffee shop in it, big projector screen for movie nights, rooftop balcony overlooking the shard, canary wharf etc. with ping pong tables and sitting area on it.

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

very good overall experience, no traffic noises at all, bin collections are often (we do have a shared bins and enough bins for general waste and recycling), free parking on road even tho people from the neighbouring buildings take some of our spaces which is very annoying. many train stations within maximum of 15 min walk, few bus routes. few local restaurants and pubs, local shops.

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

only bad thing in my opinion is the neighbouring buildings using our parking spaces which sometimes makes it very hard to find a space available. Also if you have electric car, the one charging station we have on the street doesn’t work, however the charging station is not provided by the building management so they are not responsible for it.

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

we haven’t had any issues to raise, but they are always happy to help if needed.

Amazing building to live in

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2022

The building has some great features like a huge terrace with ping pong tables, plants and amazing view to Canary Wharf, huge shared lounge with projector, sofas and several desk and booths, perfect for wfh. Recently the cafe has reopened as well. Management is responsive and the guys at the concierge are great.

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

Deptford High Street offers a wide range of local shops, independent coffee shops/bakery, tattoo shop. Amazing oriental grocery shops and restaurants. You can also find a local brewery and the Saturday market is a great occasion to discover local vendors. Great connection, the building is situated 10 minutes walking from both new cross and Deptford station.
The building is located just in front of the train tracks but is very well insulated thanks to the double glazed windows. Parking in free and there is no traffic noise.

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

Air ventilation unit is located in the bedroom and it’s quite noisy. Especially during night

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

We had only one issue with hot water but the problem was promptly fixed

I’ve lived in this area for around 8 years now and love how much of a community vibe it has which is rare to find in london

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

Unsure think they cleared every issue or concerns we had before moving ib

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

Very good value for money and very well managed property.

Review Date May 2022

Clean and new development, good sound proofing and light. Warm in the winter without much need for heating however heater broke and was stuck over winter and bathroom has some low quality installations, for example toilet bowel low quality and flush prone to breaking/trickling. Building management is impeccable, very friendly and helpful whenever they are needed and quick to respond to any email.

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

Fairly close to local grocery stores and cafes. Good access to 2 train stations and overground. 5 minutes from bus stops although feels a bit unsafe coming home late at night.

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

Good to know that management of the building is so available and helpful. Location makes it very easy to get around london via public transport. Parking around here is free but difficult to get a space.

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

They respond quickly and arrange for plumbers/electricians to attend as soon as possible. Very friendly and easy to contact.

Great experience

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2022

We have been living at Vive Living for 2 years and it’s been a brilliant experience. The staff at Vive Living are all very kind, helpful and always provide quick responses to all concerns. The building is very modern and clean.

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

The area is great, plenty of bars, pubs and restaurants. The building is closed to transport links and the bike storage allows you to store your bike safely, so transports aren’t always needed 🙂

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

The flats without balcony can get quite hot during summer, so fans are needed.

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

There have been very few occasions we have needed repairs, but the times we did the issues were solved promptly and communication was very easy and clear.
