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, signals a significant change to the rental market in Glasgow, as it marks the first time that the single family housing (SFH) model has been offered in the city.
Casa, Vista Park will eventually comprise of 156 state-of-the-art 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 final completion in Spring 2025.
With the show home now open, the new properties couldn’t be more timely with studies showing that 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 already had over 1,700 rental enquiries, with applications now being considered for the further phases of development.
The new neighbourhood offers residents deposit-free, pet-friendly living as part of an industry-leading inclusive offer which places service, technology, wellbeing, and sustainability at the forefront of the rental community.
Casa, Vista Park residents will also benefit from smart environmental sensors from Moda’s technology partner Utopi – giving residents the ability to monitor everything from room temperature to 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 with 24/7 access to speak to customer service and report maintenance requests at the click of a button. 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.
The MyCasa app will allow residents to share their own news and events via the community forum, helping them to truly get to know their neighbours. As a long-term operator, Casa will also organise community events, from arranging for local food vendors to run pop-up stalls on site, to organising outdoor fitness workshops for residents.
The 6.5-hectare neighbourhood was developed in collaboration with CCG, one of the largest privately-owned construction and manufacturing groups in Scotland. The company is based just four miles from Casa, Vista Park in Cambuslang and it is this localised expertise that will be of benefit to residents moving in this winter with a high-quality finish as well as market-leading energy performance standards contributing to the modern and comfortable living environment.
Matthew Townson, Director of Development and Projects at Casa by Moda commented: “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.”
Prospective renters can take a virtual tour of these new homes on the Casa website.
