Anthology Wembley Parade is located in one of North-West London’s most international neighbourhoods. It features a collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes and sits right by Wealdstone Brook. Additionally, the rest of the city is within easy reach thanks to the nearby stations at Wembley Park and Wembley Central. Wembley Park station is only a 4-minute walk away, and has direct connections to Central London.

Great apartments

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

The building looks and is very new, with overall good build quality. The layout of the apartments is spacious with a big balcony.

On the other hand, noise from the lift can be heard through the day on all the apartment, and is difficult to recycle since containers get mixed.

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

Living at Wembley Park is great. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance and even an outlet. The underground is within 2 minute walking distance with just 2 stops to Baker Street on the Metropolitan line.

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

None have come up so far.

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

Had a single problem in the bathroom and it got solved quickly.

Nice building, weak management

Review Date Sep 2021

It’s a nice property, very modern. Not many facilities but I don’t use gym etc anyway, so not a problem for my part. The common areas are reasonably well maintained, apartment unit itself is spacious and we designed.

Only feature that is odd is sinks. They don’t drain very well, and design of toilet taps makes them hard to turn on and off.

Building management is unresponsive, and often get the feeling that they’re content giving pro forma answers rather than genuinely trying to address resident problems. For instance, when we asked manager to come have a look at a creaking pipe next to our front door, he claimed to have come by our apartment and not to have heard any creaking sounds. At no point did he even bother knocking on our door to check with us what the problem was. Had to get a separate contractor in who spotted issue immediately. Disappointing and occasionally lazy management overall.

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

Near stadium and tube, so many amenities. But lacking in local restaurants, and sometimes tube not reliable.

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

That management would be so weak, and that sinks would take time to drain.

Lovely place to live, with a few caveats

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2021

On the whole, the building is well designed. It’s rare to have any green space so I am super thankful that there is grass, benches and plants outside.

I prefer that the building has fewer facilities than others as we wouldn’t get much use out of them and would have to pay an inflated service charge.

I do wish some of the building was built to a higher quality, though. It’s obviously a new development so still looks great but I fear certain aspects may not stand the test of time. Anthology have been good at remedial works, however, as there was an issue with the doors that they have since sorted.

Alex – the maintenance guy – is absolutely amazing and takes great care of the development, as does the lady who cleans whose name I don’t know! Soundproofing is surprisingly good as I haven’t heard too much of the student parties.

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

Wembley Park is a great place to live, with fantastic transport links, places to eat, get coffee. A lot of money has been spent on developing the area so it’s very shiny-looking. It feels safe to walk down Olympic Way in the dark as a woman as it’s well lit.

Cons: lack of parking, football fans can cause some mess and disruption, an awful lot of construction going on in the local area, a decent amount of the restaurants are chains and it would be nice to see more independent businesses. The Metropolitan line can also be a bit temperamental, particularly if you need to get an Aldgate service

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

The district heating system cannot be changed. We will be stuck with the same provider even if prices go up massively, which it looks like they may soon.

Flat can be quite dark on the whole as there is not much sunlight, but this means the flat stays cool in the summer.

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

There seems to be a high turnover of staff at Rendall and Rittner who, thus far, have not caused us any issues but also therefore have not answered any of my suggestions. There’s a nice reed diffuser that gets rotated around the blocks but it would be quite nice to have one in each block.

A lovely use of space with plenty of greenery. The views are fantastic and the finish inside and out is of a high quality.

The building management company are always on hand should you need and the Anthology team are often around.

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

Good: location, quality of infrastructure in the surrounding area.
Bad: just no access to parking

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

That the parking would ultimately be impossible to get.

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

Reasonably quickly, I would ask for a bit more communication

Overall very happy with my development.

Design is very neutral and hopefully will last a long time.

The front garden makes the property feel like a home, especially at night when well lit.

One downside I would say is the children’s play area. Doesn’t really get utilised and I feel the space could have be better used for something else.

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

Whilst I was familiar with the North West London area, this is my first time living in Wembley and I am pleasantly surprised. A lot of restaurants, bars and shops around and a very safe environment due to the security around the stadium.

It does get fairly busy on match days but that is expected.

Only critique I have is parking options for guests, no where available on the road and closest car parks are far away.

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

Parking in the area.
Issues with other residents (bin room not being cleared)

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

Yes, albeit with delay.

Some issues raised on clixifix yet to be resolved after being raised 3 months ago.

terrible plan. living room has a curve. no ideal layout for sofa and TV. terrible design. no sunlight. too many buildings blocked outside view.

no rooftop garden. it could have solved sunlight issue.

facilities and appliances are nice and easy to use.

trash bins were put in a difficult position: recycles are all outward, generals are inward, so I have to throw all the way into general bin. it is solved this week. please keep it this way so I don’t need to throw.

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

nice area. convenient transport. only for event days it’s very crowded. other time it’s nice.

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

i didn’t know i need to pay service charge for one year at once. I thought it’s monthly.

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

it is great. i can get all the answers promptly. there was one problem for some reason after I moved in they posted marketing suite plague using my flat number. people ring the intercom to ask me let them in. but it was solved.

How it is to live in Wembley Parade…

Review Date Sep 2021

The design looks great but everyone can see everyone. No privacy. Thin walls with very loud neighbours.

Finishing touches could be better if comes to design. The silicone in bathroom was not properly fitted and was licking from beginning. Waiting 3 months for a fix up but even after that was licking. Floor has loads fixed up after the builders.

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

The development is ok nice green are a and little play ground for kids which is great in city. Blocks are between few students developments so noisy every weekend. Very antisocial behaviours once there was a party over 100 people in a flat opposite and everyone was too scared to react police throughout tenants next day. The finishing could be better. Licking balconies and some finishing in the flat not as good as it seemed.
Maintenance is great keep stuff clean and fixed quickly.

But I would not buy the flat for this monies. Asking prizes are way too much.

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

Too many students if I knew we would not move in

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

Take too long and job is not even done properly after the fix there is a still lock in the bathroom

Not bad value. Good transport links. Too many students.

Review Date Sep 2021

Design is not bad. Our flat is very small, but the kitchen is quite a nice modern design with matte finish units. We’ve noticed the quality in a few areas is not the best, e.g. with chipping paint and bad seals around the shower. Have had no issues with building management. The outdoor area is kept quite tidy.

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

Nice to have a big ASDA and a Lidl both within walking distance. There are some nice food options in Box Park (a few mins walk). Also only a few mins walk from Wembley Park underground which has good connections to central London which is nice. It’s a bit close to the road so there is some traffic noise as well as construction noise from the buildings opposite. There are loads of students around so obviously there is a lot of noise and sometimes anti-social behaviour from them. We had an issue recently with a large party in one of the flats opposite where the police where in involved.

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

It’s good to be aware that this is a student area, so there are lots of students in the area and in the building. It’s also good to be aware of the large events (e.g. football games) that take place in Wembley stadium which create a lot of noise and sometimes difficulty getting back home, e.g. from the station

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

The couch in the living room (the flat came furnished) is very bad quality and the springs are pushing up from the bottom of the couch and it’s quite uncomfortable. We’ve mentioned to the flat manager some months ago and chased up a few times, but nothing has been done to replace it yet.

Management is friendly and responsive. They react promptly when an issue is reported.

Design is modern and elegant.

I don’t come from the Uk and in other countries that I have lived, I have had better quality amenities, but I think they are still good.

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

Area is perfect, close to the station, close to shops, quiet, but you easily access lively areas

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

The building is quite quiet. I watch movies quite loud, but it does not disturb anyone. I guess the sound proofing is quite good.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Some of the fittings, like the quality of the taps, the outside doors, hotter water, underfloor heating

Hi Aga,

Thank you for your review.

I will speak to Rendall & Rittner to see if they can build a relationship with the building management team of the student accommodation block and understand if they plan to take any action.
