The Commercial Quarter comprises science and office buildings offering great potential to provide new jobs and opportunities to the local neighbourhood. The new buildings will have the flexibility to cater for a variety of tenants, ranging from small start-ups to larger established users.
The laboratory buildings have been designed to be adaptable between science and commercial space and there will be a range of amenities to enhance the working environment and encourage cross collaboration.
The office buildings will meet modern occupier needs and complete the urban environment around Cambridge Square, the public space immediately outside the station, so defining the character of the principal streets and arrival experience at Cambridge North Station.
Active ground floor uses and reception spaces have been carefully located on key pedestrian routes. In addition, there will be cafés, shops and bars as well as co-working and community facilities at ground level.
A complementary palette of natural finishes and contemporary building and landscape design will enhance the character of the development.
