Studies show that Glasgow has the second highest rental demand in the UK. The Casa, Vista Park development 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 in response to this demand.

The new scheme 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 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.”

Casa, Vista Park residents will 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. 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.

“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.”

A bespoke MyCasa app has also been designed to help residents report any maintenance issues and offer them 24/7 access to customer services. The app provides the opportunity to take advantage of regional and national brand partnerships such as FiiT, Neom Organics, The Ivy and Sky, alongside the option to conveniently book local recommended at-home services, such as dog walking, window cleaning and gardening services. The app will also 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 by Moda 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.
