We’ve lived in our flat for 2 years and never needed any repairs- everything feels good quality.
With covid, We’ve used the concierge and gym far less, but it’s nice to know they are there.
There is still a lot of work ongoing in the final building so not all facilities are finished (e.g. playground), but everyone has made the buildings and balconies look lovely.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The development is still growing, so there is more and more to do everyday! The shops that have opened are great, though there are still empty ground floor lots that will be nicer once retail moves in. The area is lovely – buzzing on one side with hackney wick and canal bars, more upmarket and relaxed towards Victoria park.
There is limited parking, but public transport is excellent and the development all sits on a pedestrian area, making it very safe and quiet.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The area is still filling in, but has so much potential! There is some rough around the edges and it is more suited for young(ish) people – some nightlife which comes with noise and rubbish, and not a huge availability of childcare etc for families.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
They’ve been pretty good – initial small faults were rectified quickly and there is now a residents group. Some decisions have been reversed after feedback from residents, and our service charge hasn’t increased much.
