Moda, Hove Central officially opens its doors

Moda, Hove Central officially opened its doors this week, with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the Mayor of Brighton & Hove Jackie O’Quinn.

The Mayor was joined by representatives from Moda as well as Brighton and Hove City Council members and figures from the local community to celebrate the product of years of collaboration between the parties. Guests were given tours of the new neighbourhood and treated to a musical performance by local artist Elvie from BN1 Arts.

Moda, Hove Central will bring 824 state-of-the-art rental homes to the Hove area, including 564 build-to-rent apartments, as well as a host of best-in-class resident amenities. It’s set to welcome its first residents this week and will cater to all ages and requirements, ranging from spacious studios to three-bedroom homes, and available at a range of price points.

Moda, Hove Central will comprise of six buildings, each offering residents unparalleled views of the sea, the South Downs, and the surrounding city, and each beautifully interior-designed home will be packed with the latest tech and Samsung integrated appliances.

The Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Jackie O’Quinn, said: “After many years working so closely with Moda as a local ward councillor, I am delighted to have the honour to officially open this new neighbourhood. Moda, Hove Central has already had a positive impact on the local community through its close and much-valued engagement with it. I look forward to seeing the ambitious public art projects come to fruition over the coming months and years.”

Peter Kyle, MP for Hove, said: “It is hugely rewarding to see Moda, Hove Central opens its doors to residents. Moda Living has been an engaged and committed partner throughout the planning and construction phases of this project which I have no doubt will continue as the first residents move in and the neighbourhood takes its place as a long-term member of the Hove community. I am excited to welcome the new residents and help them to become valued new members of the neighbourhood here in Hove."

James Blakey, Planning and Engagement Director at Moda Group, said: "This is a huge milestone for Moda and the wider Hove community. Even before construction began on site, we worked closely with Brighton & Hove City council and the local community to create a neighbourhood that would have a lasting impact for generations to come. As well as bringing much-needed new homes to Hove, we have already had a positive impact on the cultural life of the city and there is much more to come. I’d like to thank the Mayor for cutting the ribbon and officially declaring Moda, Hove Central open.”
