Having moved over from the US for work at the beginning of the year, Atul Chandra was one of the first residents to move in to 10 George Street, the first Build-to-Rent development by Vertus in Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf. Atul was taken by the quality and convenience on offer at 10 George Street, as well as the exceptional level of service offered by the Vertus team.
Discussing how he came to rent with Vertus, Atul Chandra, Director at a large financial firm in Canary Wharf, said:
“My wife was walking around Wood Wharf one afternoon and noticed 10 George Street, she said I had to view an apartment here because of how brilliant the building looked.
She wasn’t wrong. Having viewed a lot of apartments with an agent, I organised a viewing on my own and fell in love with the five-star living at 10 George Street. I was so impressed by the professional, helpful nature of the team and reserved an apartment immediately. I have not been disappointed; this really is the best place in London to rent and I would recommend it to all my friends and family.”
The move over from the US for work meant that the flexible tenancies and varied deposit options on offer with Vertus at 10 George was a perfect package:
“I’m on a short-term global location contract with my work and my wife and I have just purchased somewhere out in the US, so it just made sense to lease. It’s looking like my contract for work may be extended and I will definitely be lengthening my tenancy at 10 George Street if that’s the case.”
Discussing what life is like living in Canary Wharf’s newest district, Wood Wharf, he went on to say:
“There are art installations to enjoy, fantastic events and a buzzing atmosphere. I can’t wait to get to experience the neighbourhood as it’s developed further.”
He currently leases an open-plan studio apartment filled with natural light, one of the most popular types with residents at 10 George Street. The apartments are fully furnished by interior design company Camerich and residents have complete control over interior decorations. All apartments also come with high-specification appliances.
“I love the interiors of my apartment, they’re modern and swish but not too flashy. The floor-to-ceiling windows are amazing, they let in so much light and the views make working from home that much easier.”
What has really stood out to Atul whilst leasing at 10 George Street has been the exceptional Vertus team who are on hand 24/7 to help residents with a whole host of services; from maintenance, dry cleaning and parcel deliveries to dedicated Move-in Managers.
“The concierge team at Vertus made it really easy to settle in – they’ve really thought of everything. Anything you need, the concierge team are on hand to help you out, all with a smile on their face.”
The Vertus team also organise regular events to instil a genuine sense of community at 10 George Street.
“The live music and wine nights organised in the amenity spaces were spectacular, they helped me get to know my neighbours really well. I actually know more of my neighbours over here than I do in the US now; there’s a real community atmosphere.
They’re so thoughtful and focused on the experience their tenants have whilst living at 10 George Street.”
