We've completed the first phase of Casa's new rental homes in Springboig, Glasgow, our first residential neighbourhood in the city. 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 Glasgow rental market, as it marks the first time that a family rental housing model has been offered in the city.
With the show home now open, prospective residents are able to view the high–tech, quality design of the homes, in addition to experiencing the new standard in suburban living that Casa neighbourhoods provide, which includes deposit-free, pet-friendly living as standard.
The 31 new homes, which are available to rent from November, 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, we've had already had over 1,700 rental enquiries, with applications now being considered for the second phase of development.
The second phase of homes range across semi, terraced and detached house types and will be available for move-ins from Spring 2024. Further 1-bed and 2-bed apartments will be available in Spring 2025, with customers able to pre-register their interest via the website to gain priority access.
Casa, Vista Park’s 156 state-of-the-art homes are located just a 15-minute drive from the centre of Glasgow - perfect for commuters wanting to gain easy access into the city. The neighbourhood is ideally located for public transport links as well – being just five minutes from Shettleston train station and having a local bus stop on its doorstep. It’s also close to several outdoor parks and local leisure facilities such as gyms, Greenfield Football Centre, and Springboig Bowling Club.
As part of an industry leading inclusive offer, Casa places service, technology, wellbeing, and sustainability at the forefront of its rental communities. 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. The homes also feature solar PV panels as part of Casa’s commitment to sustainable development and Moda’s journey to netzero.
In addition, the bespoke MyCasa app has been designed to make residents’ lives as easy as possible by providing them with 24/7 access to speak to customer services 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 including arranging for local food vendors to run pop-up stalls on-site and organising outdoor fitness workshops for residents through its range of local and national partners.
As seen in the show home, Casa also offer bespoke furniture packs for an additional cost, which residents can arrange to have in their home ahead of their move-in day in order to make the moving journey even easier.
The 6.5-hectare neighbourhood was developed in collaboration with CCG, one of the largest privately-owned construction and manufacturing groups in Scotland. CCG create high-quality homes with exceptional energy performance standards which will be something that residents will experience for the first time as they move in this winter.
Sarah Nelson, Director of Operations at Casa by Moda commented: “The opening of Casa, Vista Park, couldn’t come at a better time for residents in Glasgow where demand for quality rental properties is far outstripping demand. A key focus for us is to make sure that our new neighbourhoods truly embed into, and act as an extension of, their surrounding communities – so alongside delivering high-quality, sustainable homes we’re also looking to build partnerships with local businesses and organisations. That way our neighbourhoods feel like home from day one, and we hope this encourages our residents to stay for a long time.”
We can’t wait to welcome our first residents throughout November and look forward to seeing Casa, Vista Park transform into a thriving community!
