Story

Our buyers are worldly. And so are we.

Globally, cities are rapidly transitioning towards higher density living environments. Think New York, Paris, London, Berlin – happy, harmonious apartment-style communities. The rest of us, Australia included, aren’t far behind. We’re true believers in the value of low maintenance living — environmentally, financially and for way of life. The global momentum is growing, and we’re part of it.

We may live and work locally, but we think globally. We create homes that are internationally influenced, and locally sensitive. From the international to the individual, we seek out trends, taking inspiration and influences and apply them to our developments for the benefits of residents. We celebrate new thinking. We celebrate the best thinking.

Moda_team

Led by Founder and Director Ed Farquharson and Development Manager, Nick Inge, Moda is forging a reputation as one of Melbourne’s most innovative and intelligent developers. With decades of experience in property and finance, we bring years of complementary industry experience from development through to on-site expertise. Organised and with an eye for detail, we share a passion for developing homes of distinction for owner occupiers.

With over $200 million of apartments under development, and a number of projects in the pipeline, we continue with strength. But Moda is not just another faceless developer – quite the opposite, in fact. Our success is a direct result of the way we approach our business. 

It’s personal and that’s the way we want it. Our beliefs start with us, but permeate throughout our business, our consultants and our brand.

Our buyers are discerning. We work closely with Australia’s best architects to develop innovative designs that exceed the highest of expectations. We pride ourselves on discovering sites that others may overlook; that’s where we find the real gems. We focus on high value locations, in suburbs of high demand. We know what it takes to craft impeccable living environments that will be forever in demand.

We are proud to have the backing of some of the industry’s finest and most experienced leaders in property.
