BN1 gets first look at the ‘Moda Life’ 

Moda Living will open the doors to its new multigenerational neighbourhood in Hove this Spring

Picture this. You’re taking in the golden hour views from your roof terrace, after cooking up a storm for friends in your private dining room. Tomorrow, you might have a personal training session in your own 24-hour, state of the art gym. Or perhaps you’ll watch a film in your home cinema, or curl up in bed surfing on your free superfast Wi-Fi. You might be fooled into thinking we’re describing the latest luxury hotel opening – we aren’t. This is Moda Hove Central, a sleek new residential neighbourhood opening 10 minutes from Hove Station this Spring. 

BN1 was lucky enough to be one of the first through the door of the latest (and largest) Moda neighbourhood to date. We’d heard great things about Moda’s existing collection of neighbourhoods across the country (Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and Edinburgh, to name a few) and we were eager to see how the newest one measured up. So strap in – here’s our take on the Moda way of life…


The new neighbourhood sits on Sackville Road, a 10-minute stroll from Hove Station. For reference, that’s less than 15 minutes on foot to The Ginger Pig, or a 20-minute walk to Rockwater. Super central!

First impressions

We made our way up the ‘Spanish Steps’ which lead to the main entrance and atrium. The scale of the neighbourhood is incredible – over 800 beautiful homes coming to one stunning location. It was refreshing to find out that 60% of this epic neighbourhood will be made into public gardens for everyone to enjoy. These won’t be your standard public gardens either – Moda has worked closely with the council to recruit an incredible line-up of local and internationally acclaimed artists who are currently creating bespoke pieces to fill the spaces. We can’t wait to see them – watch this space for more info on unveilings early next year!  


Stepping inside

What an entrance! The heart of this beautiful neighbourhood takes residence in an impressive double height space, flooded with natural light. The space blends pastel pinks with deep, dark greens and accents of teal tiling. Think industrial-chic with a warm colour palette – we absolutely love it. Upstairs is equally stunning with pops of colourful art that perfectly compliment the deep navy walls in the communal lounges. Carefully considered textures give the space a charming warmth too – we love the rattan, brushed leather and abundance of sprawling plants. 


The apartments

These pictures speak for themselves. From spacious studios to three-bedroom homes, the high standard is consistent throughout all Moda spaces. Each apartment building will have a roof terrace accessible to all residents, boasting unparalleled views of the sea, the South Downs, and the surrounding city. Inside, the apartments are packed with the latest tech and Samsung integrated appliances. Residents can opt for furnished or unfurnished – those opting in can expect the same gorgeous interiors spotted throughout the communal zones. We’ve left with some serious interiors inspo!



This is where things get really exciting. Moda just makes life better for residents. Here are some of our favourite bits that Moda residents can expect:

The Verdict

Moda is unlike anything we’ve currently got here in Hove. Interior designed homes, state-of-the-art amenities and a super central location are just the beginning – Moda is building the foundation for an incredible lifestyle for all its residents. We love the consideration that has gone into this neighbourhood and the close attention they have paid when it comes to integrating with local communities – we can’t wait to see them unveil their public art early next year.
