In our recent report on the Build to Rent tenant experience, we debuted our top 5 highest rated BTR developments, based on scores and reviews in 2018. Check them out below…
Dressage Court, Essential Living
Essential Living bags the top spot with Dressage Court, a collection of 104 pet-friendly apartments in a prime Bethnal Green location. Our reviewers rave about the shared spaces, which encompass a stylish lounge, dedicated workspace and a rooftop terrace with stellar views of Canary Wharf.
“The building is absolutely stunning. The apartments are tastefully done and very spacious. The resident team is always so helpful. The building organises many events throughout the year so that the residents feel like they are a part of a community. Absolutely love living here!” – Nilofer R, verified resident
Fizzy Hayes, Fizzy Living
At number two it’s Fizzy Hayes, a swish development of apartments and townhouses just a hop from Hayes & Harlington station (Crossrail is coming soon, too). Each Fizzy property comes with a dedicated onsite Property Manager known as ‘Bob’, and at Fizzy Hayes its Ha. She was named Property Manager of the Year by Property Week in 2018, and the HomeViews community thinks she’s the best. Also on offer here? A party room and a garden podium deck.
“Ha, David and Kiran are so wonderful and quick to respond to any questions or repairs. They really care about all the residents and we love the community feel here at Fizzy Hayes.” – Jena, verified resident
Vantage Point, Essential Living
They’ve done it again! Essential Living’s Vantage Point is at number three on our list. This gleaming skyscraper is one of our best-connected developments – it’s literally on top of Archway tube station. Homes here are a mix of modern studios and apartments, and shared facilities include a private dining room and a state-of-the-art gym.
“Living in Vantage Point has been nothing but a pleasure. The residents team are all lovely and always there to help. The amenities are lovely, always clean, and makes it feel like home away from home. After moving from NY, I knew the adjustment was going to be challenging but Vantage Point did many things to make it less hard. Always greeting me when I walked in, demonstrating their effort to have a small chat whenever I would get back from a long day, and always being so welcoming. I love Vantage Point so much and am very happy about my decision of choosing to live here.” – Anonymous, verified resident
be:here Hayes, be:here
Akash, the Building Manager at be:here Hayes has had so many mentions the HomeViews team decided to sit him down for a chat. It turns out he used to be in the army and was a police detective, so little wonder everything at this development is ship-shape. Residents also love the easy London commute and the quality of the apartments.
“Good location, great quality apartments and amazing property management team! Living in be:here Hayes is a great experience!” – Milton N, resident
Fizzy Stepney Green, Fizzy Living
Another double-whammy, this time for Fizzy Living who made it into fifth place with their Stepney Green development. This one makes us feel happy just by looking at the exterior, thanks to its sunshine-yellow balconies. Other reasons to smile at Fizzy Stepney Green? 24/7 laundry and dry-cleaning facilities, a Zone 2 location by Stepney Green tube station, and plenty of residents socials for getting to know neighbours.
“I have been moving around London for the past 5-6 years, and I can honestly say that Fizzy provides the best living facilities I have experienced so far.” – Medi M, resident
