Moda is also in discussions with the city council on improving the surrounding public realm outside the Pitt Street site and installing new green infrastructure.Tony Brooks, Managing Director at Moda, said, “By being both developer and landlord, we can ensure the residents of Holland Park have the best possible experience, having designed the scheme from the ground up for rent. High quality rental accommodation like this that taps into new technologies and lifestyles will help rejuvenate city centres and perhaps more importantly for university towns like Glasgow, attract and retain talent.Murray Henderson, Director at HAUS Collective, said, “As Glaswegians, we recognise the importance of an increased resident population within an evolving City Centre contributing to the wider city economy. Holland Park presents a distinctive, contemporary lifestyle choice through the innovative ‘Build-to- Rent’ community being created.”Moda high-tech rental housing Strathclyde Police headquarters build-to-rent 2018-03-05The Negotiator Related articles Calls for ‘green belt’ to be explained to public29th April 2021 Young entrepreneur launches UK’s first ‘modern’ land buying and selling portal15th April 2021 Retail and pub re-openings sparked newbuild sales homes surge yesterday13th April 2021What’s your opinion?
