Our residents want convenience, culture and central London living. We help by making renting as easy as possible, with developments in the most sought after neighbourhoods in London.

You’re choosing to rent and we love you for it. Where you live is one of your biggest decisions and it says a lot about you. 

Our residents have made renting core to their lifestyle. They care about convenience, central London living, ease of everyday life and having neighbours they can engage with. These values are central to the Essential Living lifestyle. 

That’s why we’ve designed our developments specifically for renters. Your apartment has been crafted to offer you a stylish private space to relax and unwind, whilst every development comes with shared social spaces – such as lounges, gyms and games rooms – to give you added services and more space to live beyond your apartment. 

What’s more, all the big bills – electric, heating, water and WiFi – are sorted for you and packaged into one monthly payment. The residents’ team organise social events, such as happy hours and a Saturday morning breakfast, to help you connect and have meaningful relationships with your community. 

All this adds up to an unparalleled renting lifestyle; one that’s hassle-free and gives you more time to focus on what’s important to you.

Lifestyle at Essential Living

We offer a service that takes away the mundane, time-consuming jobs no one wants to be lumped with.

What Our Residents Think

1 of 1
  • 10/10 would recommend living here

    Building and property management has been excellent. All interactions with the residents team have been fantastic from problems we had before moving to the first day of moving in and until now!

  • Dream home found!

    We've finally found our dream home and there's honestly nothing to dislike! Our flat is beautiful, everything is so well thought-out and the furnishings are incredibly stylish. I love the ample storage space, the bathrooms are a dream, I love the floor-to-cealing windows, the excellent soundproofing, the incredibly well designed kitchen, the underfloor heating and cooling. The rooftop is arguably one of the best views in London and makes an amazing wfh space as well. Huge shout out to the residential team who are always friendly and helpful!

  • Great place and people

    Great property with amazing facilities like the gym on the 22nd floor. The staff is so helpful and friendly especially Ines. Quick to resolve any issues. The building itself is very secure. The furniture provided is very comfortable. Overall very comfortable.

  • Great place to live!

    Firstly, the views are INSANE! Hands down best views in London. The building itself is gorgeous, modern, and stylish. The facilities are great and always well kept. The gym is fairly small so it would be nicer to have more space there. The building management team is lovely and always super responsive. We are grateful for everything they do.

  • I can't recommend Union Wharf, Essential Living and Greenwich enough

    The roof terrace will sell the building to you! Incredible views of London's skyline, two outdoor bbq areas, comfortable seating and an indoor communal space complete with pool table and board games / books. you can also hire out a private dining room which we did last Christmas to host 20 of our friends and it was great, it made the occasion really special.

  • Perfect balance of city life and a tranquil retreat

    The development itself is everything you’d want from a modern rental experience. Modern, stylish and minimalistic. Property management are fantastic and no issue is too small for their help. The gem in the crown is the communal top floor, including incredible views and a gym as well.

  • Prime Location, beautiful design, excellent service

    The building is very well designed, furbished and decorated, the communal areas are modern, luxurious and very well designed and maintained. The management team and reception offer an excellent service.

  • Simply amazing!

    The design of the flats are modern and comfortable, and allows space for your personal decoration. The building is always clean, it also feels safe living here.

  • Union Wharf - what I was looking for after 10 years in London

    Union Wharf has been my home for the last year, so I can talk to you about winter, summer, and lockdown! A good new built, keeps noise out, and has great temperature management (both winter heating and summer cooling). The apartments are spacious, with lots of storage and light. The kitchen and bathrooms are of the highest quality, and the appliances are also great. In terms of facilities, we have a small garage area, but sufficient bike storage, and the roof terrace. You need to see it to believe it. The residents lounge is beautiful, flooded with light and full of plush sofas to relax. The communal kitchen, that you can rent out for parties, overlooks Canary Wharf, and there is also a small gym, with the possibility of PTs and yoga lessons!

  • Union Wharf deserves a 6/5

    Collier point at Union wharf is really stunning. Regarding the design, there is a very good mix of real and quality synthetic plants that bring the space to life. The development definitely caters to pet owners, too, having multiple spaces for dogs to do their business. Regarding the communal facilities, they’re really well-kept and very comfortable. The gym has everything you need to do a good workout, and it is kept very tidy. The staff are all wonderful too, friendly and professional. Our flat itself is very comfortable in all seasons and the appliances are energy efficient modern. The price is perfect.

  • Amazing - can’t recommend enough!!!

    The building is fab, can’t recommend it enough. The communal spaces are great and always kept tidy. The communal spaces are also great to WFH in if you like. The building is very modern and the flats are beautiful. The residents team are amazing and can’t help you enough, always lovely to stop and chat to! Love everything, can’t recommend the building enough.

  • Best place I've lived in the UK

    The people at the front desk and the entire team is super friendly and helpful, they do make you feel at home. I never have to wait too long for an elevator. And the view from kitchen, the terrace and the games room is priceless. The flats are really nice with stylised furniture.

  • Best place to live

    Love living at vantage point, the building is really well decorated and all the flats have modern furniture. Great facilities from the gym to all the communal areas.

  • Brilliant staff, stunning building!

    Laura and Michelle where amazing, they where extremely helpful and enthusiastic, and ultimately swayed our decision to rent at vantage point. Great management. And friendly staff throughout. The views are breath-taking from the balcony. The building is very well maintained and is very clean. Would recommend highly!

  • Fantastic place to live

    Development is good ! Feels good to live here . You can leave your worry behind and enjoy your life ! There are so many shops nearby . You literally have to walk to find anything ! Grocery , post office , delivery , etc - you name it and it’s there ! Plus building supports animal . I love to cuddle furry babies :)

  • I would recommend this facility without any doubts!

    Development is very well located. Super build quality. Nice interiors. Very responsive and amicable staff. Management is professional. And the list of facilities ( library, dining space, work space, terrace garden, gym, billiards room etc) is super useful.

  • Legendary place to live

    There is not enough praise we can give the resident's team we have here. Always with smiles on their faces and happy to help, I have ZERO complaints. I love the fact that there are communal areas, it gives me a lot of things to explore in my free time.

  • Living with a view

    Great concept, fantastic staff members, and luxurious living right on top of Archway tube station. The skyline views are staggering and the common areas are very well designed. Also lots of great and helpful tenants around.

  • Stylish and peace and convenient place

    Modern style. Very stylish and new. Creative design. Love it. Elevators are really fast, takes only seconds to travel tens of floor. Lobby is roomy and reception is really nice. The apartment has a gym, several common rooms and roof terraces. Great view - vantage point.

  • The best apartments in the UK

    The design of the house is very avant-garde, with all floor-to-ceiling windows, you can see the London Eye, and surrounded by low-rise buildings, you can see the whole picture of London, and there is a multi-purpose room on the 16th floor, where you can hold parties, as well as entertainment rooms and The gym can be said to be very friendly and healthy. The front desk is very friendly and greets us every time we pass by and communicates with our tenants with a smile.
