Simply the best to live in Manchester..

I’ve lived at Moda Angel Gardens since Dec 2019 and was attracted to the building, facilities and neighbourhood. After moving here , the team made me so welcome and many of them have remained and become friends. They go out of their way to make it feel like a family, regularly putting on events from supper clubs, wine tasting, cookery classes, tie -up/delivery services with local artisan businesses, courtyard events (such as pop up bars, food stalls, fun events and outdoor movies.

Moda feels like a great little oasis with its central enclosed courtyard and communal facilities mainly on the 7 floor away from the outside world ( including private dining, cinema room, sky lounge, library, residents gym and even a rooftop sports field. Integrated into the building are also another amazing gym, wellness company, great coffee shop/restaurant etc and more to come, making it almost self contained.

The Moda team are always quickly on hand to sort out any problems, make or facilitate repairs.

I honestly could not recommend the Moda team , offering and commitment more highly…

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Moda is located in the vibrant heart of the city , sandwiched between Northern Quarter, Ancoats and Victoria station / Deansgate. The team at Moda constantly make sure the building and facilities are spotless and well maintained. Loads of parking possibilities in its own garage and the local area. I was surprised when moving here how sound-proof the windows are and despite being in the centre,
Obviously, with its location, its a two minute walk, to shops, restaurants, bars, Printworks and Cinema, Arndale centre, bus, tram and train stations .

Moda has a lovely outside (and daily maintained) promenade, great views and is in one of the most vibrant and expanding parts of the city.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Despite the superb offering, stunning facilities, modern design etc, which place Moda at the very top of rental opportunities in Manchester… the thing that stands out is the Moda team..
Always here and been here unchanged throughout my 2 year tenancy… worth it weight in gold.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

As said, the team responds very quickly, helpfully and effectively. Its a huge peace of mind to know you have their support 24/7. Your are not a tenant, rather a part of the family

Angel Gardens is by far the best in terms of the furnishings, the design and you also have some awesome amenities.

Firstly, I want to say that I have lived in quite a few luxury apartment buildings in Manchester in the past couple of years and Angel Gardens is by far the best in terms of the furnishings, the design and you also have some awesome amenities. I love the fact that you have still set up zoom calls for us to have workouts/nutrition calls etc whilst we can’t use the amenities like the gym.

However, I do have to say that the customer service could most definitely be improved. The guys who work at the concierge are amazing and will go above and beyond for the residents but unfortunately that stops with them, and has not been the same treatment from the managers. When I have had problems with my apartment which were the fault of Moda, I didn’t receive any kind of compensation, not even an apology.

I think one thing that Angel Gardens is missing is a rubbish chute, it doesn’t seem very “luxury” to have to carry all of your dirty bins and rubbish down in the lift with everyone. Another thing that could be improved is having an intercom system to let guests up. I have been told that we do not have one to make things more “exclusive” but to me it just feels like more of an effort for the residents to have to keep going up and down every time we want to let somebody in.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area is great, I love how Angel Gardens is positioned perfectly between town and the northern quarter

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That there were no rubbish disposal chutes and no intercom system.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Eventually, yes. The issues were fixed which was the bare minimum I would have expected but without any kind of compensation or apology.

Good pet friendly development in a walkable distance to the rest of Edinburgh

Overall, we are happy with the development. Our apartment is stylish and has a good quality of finishes and great appliances (albeit in some instances style seems to come before practicality). There are great amenities in the buildings, including a well equipped gym, cozy lounges and a games room, as well as an inviting co-working space. The reception is welcoming and staff are all very friendly and helpful; it is of great convenience to have concierge services available 24/7. All the communal ares are clean and well-maintained and the Moda App is providing an easy and convenient way to contact members of staff and to stay updated with what is happening in the development.
Being some of the first tenants in the building we have had several issues with the apartment- the flat wasn’t properly cleaned before we moved in: there was a lot of dust and construction dirt, which prevented us from unboxing; reoccurring problems with hot water; one of the carpets in the bedroom wasn’t glued down etc. Also, the front door is not soundproofed very well and we can hear everyone open and close their doors (another issue is that the lock on the front door requires you to slam the door shut) and sometimes even what is going on in other apartments (ie screaming kids).
When we contacted reception about the issues in our apartment, most of them have been quickly and efficiently resolved.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The local area isn’t great. There aren’t many decent shops/cafes around (but that is my personal preference) and the local supermarkets are very small (and dirty), which isn’t great for a weekly shop. There is a large construction site next to the development, which does not make the area any friendlier. There is also an issue with the bins being right outside the development -on several occasions now wildlife got inside them and tore into the bags, spreading trash around the street.
The nearest nice areas are around 20 mins walk, so it isn’t too bad. The rest of Edinburgh (Stockbridge, St James Quarter, Arthur Seat) is a good 45 min walk away, which is great if you love walkable cities.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish we knew about the lack of soundproofing from the front door. We work from home and there are 4/5 other flats that we share a corridor with and we can hear each time somebody leaves/enters their flat (or if someone’s kid is unhappy), which gets too disruptive at times. Our dog also gets quite agitated from the amount of noise coming from the corridor. We lived in another build to rent accommodation prior to moving into this development and did not have such an issue there.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The responses from the management were quick and most of our issues got resolved.

My Moda Angel Gardens – Loving It, Really!

The design of the building and facilities met my expectations. Am pleased with the layout of our apartment. My dogs are happy and have settled in to their new environment – they’ve met many new pals so far. As far as facilities go, they have met my expectations, although the lockdown has prevented my ability to fully take advantage. A little disappointed that that there has been mention of charges for common areas on 7th, because we were told, initially, that all facilities were free for residents to use – provided that they were booked in advance etc.

Concierge – excellent! Great team,,,, Especially Dave, Gemma et al….

Maintenance – excellent! Especially Ryan and team members – Thanks Mike and Reece for all ao your assistance to date.

Property is well-maintained – common areas cleaned daily (including exterior grounds etc.). regular touch-up painting noted and garbage area maintained in a satisfactory manner.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Having relocated to Manchester from overseas towards the end of last year, I have found the area to fit my needs perfectly. The staff have all been courteous, the residents friendly and the location, for me is PERFECT (restaurants, retail, health and minutes walk/access to downtown GREAT)!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I’m getting really petty here, I was really disappointed that my apartment lacked recessed lighting in the living room. A kitchen island would have been nice too. Also, would probably opt for an upper level apartment with an identical layout (sq ft as current apt.) – doggies see too much activity that keeps them wound up as they can easily see other dogs walking by or out in the courtyard etc.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

These guys are phenomenal. Very helpful. Thanks for sorting out my flat screen issue. You went beyond the call of duty.

My only issue is that the team is really busy and may not show up for a scheduled visit and fail to call to let you know that they’re unable to come – happened a couple of times causing the wife and I to waste an entire day waiting for the team to arrive. No worries though, when they do show, have always been pleased with the quality of the job completed.
