Happy First Birthday to Sreamlight Tower

In February 2012 a new development was erected in London Docklands which attracted city dwellers from all over the Capital. One year later, Streamlight Tower remains a distinctive part of the London skyline, and a desirable place to live.

Developed by Swan New Homes and managed by Hera Management Services, Streamlight Tower rises 24-storeys, providing chic eco-apartments and unique duplex penthouses. Personally designed by actress and designer Sadie Frost, the kitchens of the duplex penthouses are a major draw, offering unique style and practicality for the residents.

Speaking in 2012, Suzanne Wicks, Managing Director of Hera Management Services outlined Hera’s plans for the building stating: “We are confident that we can deliver the first class service that Swan New Homes requires and are delighted to be managing this truly spectacular building. We plan to manage the building expertly and achieve value for money through the use of modern technology, innovation and continually reviewing our processes”

One year on, it is evident that Streamlight Tower is striving. Not only was the block occupied quickly, but the tenants were also in prime position to enjoy the Olympics in Summer 2012, with the Stratford Olympic village being just a short tube ride away. Tenants are particularly pleased with the standard of the building, their apartments and the personal touches they have received from Hera Management Services.

From an online portal to liaise with the management team directly, to a professional yet friendly concierge team, Hera Management Services have honed the art of block management through a service that puts tenants first. One tenant particularly provided glowing reports about the concierge team, advising: “I have lived in a building with a concierge team for most of my adult life and can say that the team of concierge members that we have are quite outstanding.”

Hera Management Services have extensive experience in managing both social and private housing, and were easily able to ensure everything ran smoothly for Streamlight’s first year. This mixed background has granted Hera both the professional approach gained from the private sector and the personalised service of the public sector. This pairing allowed Hera to face the challenges of high profile block management with ease. One year on and the property is as attractive to tenants as the day it opened, remaining in excellent condition.

Speaking in January 2013, Suzanne Wicks, highlights what the future has in store for Streamlight Tower: "We at Hera are proud to manage such a prestigious block. The finish is superb and the property is always a pleasure to visit. Our challenge is to ensure that it remains a great place to live by delivering high standards of management and attention to detail.”
