 The most sought-after rental apartments open their doors in May 2022

Moda, The Mercian: a new way of living, a place to call home!

Moda Living will open the doors of its next generation rental neighbourhood Moda, The Mercian, in Birmingham this May. The 42 story tower with 481 new homes and state-of-the-art amenities will be the newest destination in the city to live, eat, drink and work.

In a radical departure from the traditional rental market, Moda makes renting simple, accessible and aspirational, with no deposits and no fees. Moda’s Birmingham rental neighbourhood provides everything needed for modern living, including flexible workspaces, a 24/7 gym and even an outdoor rooftop terrace with a 200m running track.

Situated on the site of the renowned Click Club at Burberries, the Broad Street neighbourhood has added a striking figure to the Birmingham skyline as the city’s tallest residential building.

Moda, The Mercian offers 481 homes across 42 floors and has something to suit all ages and requirements, from spacious studio apartments and beautiful 1-beds, through to 2-bed sharers and 3-bedroom family homes. Each home comes fully furnished and complete with top-spec tech, including low-energy Samsung appliances, pervasive Wi-Fi and 50% off Sky Q packages. What’s more, residents have the freedom to decorate to put their own touch on their home and pets are welcome, making them the ideal family homes.  

The new residential building will pay homage to the musical heritage of Birmingham inspired by the famous musical background of Broad Street in particular, through interiors and curated residential events with music at their core.

Alongside this, quality health and wellness are at the heart of Moda, The Mercian, which opens in the same year as the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Including a 200m open-air rooftop terrace running track and 24-hour residents’ gym, The Mercian brings something completely unique to the rental market. The development will be aiming to achieve the highly sought-after Fitwel 3 Star Rating, already secured by their Edinburgh neighbourhood, The McEwan, which recognises Moda’s commitment to developing neighbourhoods that put residents’ health and wellbeing at their core.  

What takes living at Moda, The Mercian to a completely new level is the wealth of state-of-the-art amenities included within the rent. With beautiful panoramic views of Birmingham city centre, Moda, The Mercian offers 310 co-working spaces, creating a relaxed, flexible environment with private meeting rooms, which is perfect for modern day working life. 

Situated on the ground floor is over 30,000 sq ft of commercial space, designed to suit local independents and coffee shops as well as larger companies that support and add value to the local community. Moda, The Mercian puts the community at the forefront of its ethos, working with partners who provide high quality fit-out and design, and have good ESG principles.

With an amazing 200m rooftop running track, 24/7 gym, bookable personal trainers and gym studio space, Moda, The Mercian is designed with wellbeing at its heart. Moda provides residents virtual access to nutritionists, wellbeing coaches and sleep advisers via the app, as well as Yoga and HIIT. A partnership with MYNDUP will offer virtual mental health sessions on-demand, whilst all staff on site will be mental health first aid trained.

The MyModa app puts life at Moda, The Mercian at your fingertips, from booking events or amenity spaces to paying rent or instant messaging the 24-hour concierge. It will also act as a key to the city, offering residents exclusive access and deals from their favourite brands and venues. From dog walking to personal shopping, everything will be available to residents at the click of a button.

Wellness sensors in every apartment and communal space, measuring sound, light, temperature, humidity, CO2, light and wind speed, will provide real-time data benchmarked against the optimal wellness score for environmental performance and quality of living for residents. This data will allow Moda’s onsite team to adjust building controls to enhance wellbeing as well as boost its environmental performance.

Moda prides itself on delivering neighbourhoods with community at the heart with a focus on combating isolation. Regardless of past restrictions, Moda’s focus on community remains a core focus, across their other neighbourhoods in Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh, residents have taken part in a host of events including sunrise yoga, rum tasting and an exclusive high intensity exercise session with none other than globally renowned fitness brand Barry’s UK.

Craig Perry, General Manager at Moda, The Mercian commented: “I am so excited for the opening of The Mercian in the city I call home. Moda offers a way of renting like never before and there is no other residential building in the UK where you can find a 200m running track on the outdoor terrace. The co-working and social spaces give residents an opportunity to meet each other and the residential events an opportunity to explore new hobbies and interests. Across our other neighbourhoods, the community is what makes it so special, and I can’t wait to experience this at The Mercian.”

Moda, The Mercian will open its doors to residents in May. Those looking to move in can register here for priority booking. Show apartments and reservations will go live in March.
