Moda, Holland Park secures Fitwel accreditation
We've secured our fourth three-star Fitwel certification for our first Glasgow neighbourhood, Moda, Holland Park!
The three-star accreditation from the world’s leading certification system for healthy buildings and communities is a first for Glasgow and one of the first to be granted to a residential building in Europe. We're also recognised as a leader in Fitwel accreditations and have the distinction of holding the most globally.
Moda, Holland Park has been designed with wellbeing at its core, allowing residents to live their healthiest and happiest lives. Amenities include a 24-hour gym and fitness centre featuring state-of-the-art exercise equipment and technology, along with access to personal trainers and wellness experts, as well as bookable gym and studio spaces.
Designed to foster community and combat loneliness, other amenities include private dining rooms, cinema and gaming rooms, sky lounges with panoramic views over Glasgow, and roof terraces with green space and BBQ areas. Dedicated on-site teams will also facilitate a regular programme of resident events and activities, and the co-working space with bookable meeting rooms will allow residents to work flexibly and achieve a better work/life balance.
Each home at Moda, Holland Park has been constructed with sound proofing that is five decibels above the required levels, which provides a sense of calm and quiet throughout the neighbourhood. Environment sensors by Utopi, a partner of Moda, are installed in each home and amenity space to monitor humidity, temperature, light levels and air quality. Residents will then have access to this data through the MyModa app.
Moda, Holland Park’s central location, just a few minutes’ walk from Charing Cross station, as well as Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons will also encourage residents to walk, cycle or use public transport.
The Fitwel accreditation was secured by a dedicated team made up of representatives from Moda Living, and investors Apache Capital, Harrison Street and NFU as part of its joint venture, which includes other build-to-rent neighbourhoods in Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds and Liverpool.
No stranger to achieving excellence with Fitwel, Moda has had three of its neighbourhoods previously recognised with three-star Fitwel scoring. In June 2021, Scottish sister neighbourhood Moda, The McEwan in Edinburgh became the first residential building in Europe to achieve three-star Fitwel certification - setting the benchmark for all future Moda neighbourhoods.
Richard Smith, Managing Director, Moda Life Operations, said:
“Health and wellbeing is at the core of everything Moda does, so securing our fourth three-star Fitwel accreditation at Moda, Holland Park is a testament to the hard work and care that we put into designing our neighbourhoods.
“We’re committed to helping our residents live their happiest, healthiest lives, and we can’t wait to welcome our first residents to Glasgow’s healthiest place to live later this year.”
