I’ve been a resident at FizzyPoplar for four years now, moving here with my dog Pickles in 2016. That was one of the initial draws to Fizzy Living – it’s pet friendly. Additionally my apartment has a large terrace and there a large park opposite the block.
The second draw was the great transport links. On the DLR, I can get to Bank in 20/30 minutes from the nearby Westferry station. Same for Tower Gateway. If I fancy a trip up to Stratford, a train from Langdon Park gets me there in a similar time. Also it’s only a 15 minute walk to Canary Wharf for the Jubilee line (and Elizabeth line, when it opens).
Being so close to Canary Wharf brings those benefits: there’s plenty of bars, restaurants and cinemas nearby. There’s an on-site gym for residents.
The flat itself it’s great. Spacious and a good layout for sharing with a flatmate. Fizzy Living have been very accommodating for a switchover when the time came for my previous flatmate to move on, being very flexible, allowing things to move as we needed.
Fizzy Living have always responded to repair requests or other issues promptly. They’re my first London landlord and they’ve set the bar… I don’t think I’ll move on until I’m ready to buy.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Great transport links
Close Canary Wharf with all its restaurants, bars, shops and cinemas.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I’ve only ever had one dispute since moving into the property and that was the the expectation of pent rent – it’s £50/month for my dog. I’m still not really convinced it’s anything other than pure profit for the landlord, but in the grand scheme it’s not that big of a deal (and it seems all pet friendly landlords in london charge it too!)
What is the best feature of your home:
Definitely the terrace. It’s huge and during the summer becomes an extended part of the living room – cocktails in the sun 🙂
