Formation Architects was appointed by Crest Nicholson in September 2013 to design a residential scheme for this site on the former Cambridge City Football Club close to Cambridge City Centre.
This scheme was submitted for planning after winning unanimous support from the Cambridge Design and Conservation Panel, and support from the planning officers after 6 months of pre-planning consultation.
The scheme comprises of 106 units including 53 apartments and 51 houses for families and 40% affordable homes. The masterplan revolves around a central square as a focal point for the new neighbourhood.
All houses have gardens and upper floor terraces, all flats have generous balconies or roof terraces. Floor to ceiling heights are 2.7m throughout.
The landscaping is inspired by the use of the site as the former Cambridge City Football Ground.
