Build to Rent developer-operator Moda Living’s newest neighbourhood, Moda, The McEwan in Edinburgh, won the prestigious BTR Development of the Year Award at the Scottish Property Awards.  

The award recognised the new neighbourhood’s design, community focus and high calibre accreditations. This includes a three-star Fitwel rating – The McEwan was the first residential development to receive this certification in Europe last year.

“We are extremely proud to have earned this fantastic recognition from the Scottish Property Awards. The team has worked exceptionally hard to create these magnificent new homes for the people of Edinburgh and this win is testament to their efforts.

“Many congratulations to last night’s winners and shortlists – we hope to see you again next year.”

Moda puts health and wellbeing at the heart of the long-term operation of all its Build to Rent neighbourhoods. The McEwan scheme includes 476 new Build to Rent homes designed to optimise wellness comfort, and the neighbourhood is packed with best-in-class resident amenities. These include a 24/7 gym, cinema room, private dining rooms, roof terraces with views over Edinburgh, resident lounges and co-working space, as well as landscaped outdoor spaces and public realm.

The scheme was the first Moda Living neighbourhood to open in Scotland. Its second, Moda, Holland Park in Glasgow, which secured £80m to fund the construction of the scheme will launch next year. Both are being built by contractor Robertson, who won the Scottish Property Award in partnership with Moda Living. The award comes just weeks after The McEwan opened its doors to residents for the first time, who joined the rental community throughout March.

“This is a huge win for Moda and the fantastic team at The McEwan. So much hard work has gone in to making sure this neighbourhood is the absolute best of what Edinburgh’s rental homes have to offer, from the stunning interior designed apartments and resident amenities to a community team dedicated to resident experience and building a long-term community.

“Winning this award was the perfect way to finish a brilliant month welcoming our first residents to The McEwan, and we can’t wait to see what comes next.”
