Casa by Moda opens Glasgow’s first SFR scheme

UK: Casa by Moda, the single family homes division of developer and operator Moda Group, has reached completion on the first phase of its new rental homes in Springboig, Glasgow – its first residential neighbourhood to open in the UK.

With 31 two-, three-, and four-bedroom houses available immediately with a further 85 additional homes due to arrive over the next 12 months, Casa, Vista Park is the first SFR offer in the city.

Casa, Vista Park will eventually comprise of 156 homes located close to the east end of the city at Edinburgh Road. Construction is being delivered across six phases by Glasgow-based contractor CCG (Scotland), with the neighbourhood planned to reach overall completion in Spring 2025.

Moda says Glasgow has the second highest rental demand in the UK, and for every 100 rental units there are nearly 1,000 prospective renters. Since reservations went live, Casa by Moda has had more than 1,700 rental enquiries, with applications now being considered for the second phase of development.

The new neighbourhood offers residents deposit-free, pet-friendly living. Residents will also benefit from smart environmental sensors from Moda’s technology partner Utopi – giving residents the ability to monitor room temperature, air quality and light pollution in real time. The homes also feature solar PV panels as part of Casa’s commitment to sustainable development and Moda’s journey to operational net zero by 2030.

A bespoke MyCasa app has also been designed to make residents’ lives as easy as possible, by providing them 24/7 access to speak to customer service and report maintenance issues.

The MyCasa app also provides the opportunity for residents to take advantage of regional and national brand partnerships such as FiiT, Neom Organics, The Ivy and Sky, as well as the option to conveniently book local recommended at-home services, such as dog walking, window cleaning and gardening services.

Matthew Townson, director of development and projects at Casa by Moda, said: “With Casa, Vista Park, we are aiming to pioneer change within the Glasgow rental market and improve how people live for the long term. With there being a significant undersupply of quality rental homes in Scotland, these new homes will make for a standout offering, as they provide long-term security and focus on the wellbeing of residents. This first phase is only the beginning for Casa, Vista Park. We look forward to welcoming even more residents to the neighbourhood throughout the next two years, as we plan for overall completion in 2025.”

CCG director Calum Murray said: “By partnering with Casa by Moda, we’re pleased to offer a real first for the rental market in Glasgow. The new homes don’t compromise on quality and will have everything residents would expect from the CCG and Casa by Moda partnership with advanced construction methods and an excellent standard of specification combining to create truly desirable homes. The contribution of the development to Springboig and the wider east end community will be significant and we look forward to welcoming the first residents over the coming weeks.”

“It’s my second year attending RECHARGE and I have enjoyed it as much as last year. It was great reconnecting with all the lovely and lively old faces and meeting up new ones. Experiencing some of the best of Belfast living spaces and the varied panel of talks makes it worthwhile as we receive a pure condense of knowledge and information over 2 days.”
