Cheap quality building, construction noise
This is a new building which was put up end of 2015. When I inspected the show unit, it was breathtaking. A great view and the finishes looked amazing. However, when I took occupation of my unit, I soon realised that this place was only dressed up to look more… good but that it is very cheaply made. Construction is taking place next door and scheduled to continue until end of 2017 as they put up a 30 floor building - you hear cement trucks working and equipment operating 24/7, even on Friday mornings. During the initial 12 mth period after completing J5 and when the developer was obliged to fix defects in the building (at their own cost), they dragged their feet in responding to maintenance requests and only did patch up jobs which inevitably broke down after this period. So far I have experienced leaking showers, faulty wiring causing lightbulbs to blow every 3 weeks, faulty tap installations causing them to come loose on the basin, airconditioning problems, very cheap water based paint used on the walls which stain easily, uneven flooring causing doors to jam and not close properly, poor window seals allowing dust and rain to enter the apartment, soft walls which break off in chunks when drilling shelves. The swimming pool area is also cheaply constructed, with the cement base of the fixed tent breaking away repeatedly. The rental for this small apartment is at a clear premium - you can get 3 bedroom 4 bathroom in JBR for the same price. Cheap construction, shoddy maintenance and poor service makes this a complete rip-off.
About the area - no traffic is a bonus. However, the only shop that is closeby is a small grocer inside Sidra Tower (250m walk). Closest Metro station is 2km away. There is nothing withing walking distance.
I will be moving out as soon as my lease expires. Show less
