This building together with a new office building opposite link the urban station area with the low density Conservation Area to the north and required a sensitive design approach. The scheme incorporates a dedicated cycle route and future cycle infrastructure connections as part of the Chisholm Trail.

The scheme has been approved for planning and tender stage due to start, aiming to be on site in late 2021.

We are extremely excited to have gained planning consent for these two buildings, which will not only complete the CB1 Estate but deliver high quality office and hotel accommodation in this highly sustainable location. The proposals have matured over a long period of time and are the result of close collaboration with the client and the design team, as well as intense consultation with the Cambridge Planning Officers Cam Cycle and the local community.

Next Case Study:

Blackheath Road

The site was originally occupied by a light industrial building which had a negative impact on the surrounding residential properties and was judged to have a detrimental impact on the appearance of the Conservation Area.
