These next generation city apartments use an app to keep residents connected 24/7

How residents at Moda Angel Gardens have been virtually integrating into city life during lockdown

Moda Angel Gardens opened its doors in 2019 offering residents a healthy lifestyle as well as a home.

As well as the enviable list of amenities, on site events and services which are part of life at Angel Gardens is the MyModa app, a digital platform available to all Moda residents 

The app acts as a tool for residents to manage their life at Angel Gardens. Residents can use it to pay rent, speak directly to concierge, log maintenance requests and book apartment cleans.

In the last few weeks, Moda have used it to keep residents connected and informed, ensuring life at Angel Gardens hasn’t had to be put on hold during lockdown.

They’ve worked with a number of local partners to host a series of virtual events for residents, with nearly 200 bookings made per month via the app.

Residents have taken part in pasta making workshops with The Pasta Factory (with supplies dropped to their front doors), made their own pizza with Noi Quattro, enjoyed beer tasting with Northern Monk, whisky tasting with Great Drams and wine tasting with Evuna, made at home takeaways with Food Sorcery, had cocktails delivered to their door by Grindsmith and enjoyed wellbeing sessions and workout classes from hero wellbeing

Angel Gardens have also used the app to let residents know about external events and activities, from art classes with Old Bank to a book club with the Manchester Young Professional network.

Alongside the extensive events schedule, Moda have used the lockdown period to extend the range of services available on the app. 

Throughout lockdown, residents have been able to book bread deliveries from Pot Kettle Black, order beer to their doorstep from Shindigger Brewing Co., take advantage of fresh fruit and veg deliveries from Manchester based The Market Co, avoid the pasta shortage with DIY pasta kit deliveries from The Pasta Factory, book food deliveries from Food Sorcery and enjoy sweets treats from Siop Shop. 

The MyModa app allows residents to create their own community groups setting up anything from general chat, to gaming networks so that residents can compete against each other, a channel for sharing Netflix recommendations, Tik-Tok videos, health and wellbeing tips, book clubs and more.  

In the coming months, the app will have more features, including acting as residents’ key to their apartments, a tool to book more services across the city and a platform that will give them access to exclusive offers and deals from an extensive list of local partners. 

The final phase of Moda Angel Gardens is due to open in June 2020. For more information visit
