Cambridge is a city undergoing fast growth with a strong educational sector and new industries and employers providing the basis for significant growth of the housing stock. In the northwest of the city, a large new masterplan by AECOM has set the basis for the creation of a new urban center with leisure and retail infrastructure, new teaching and research space, and new homes.

Our plan provides for 250no. "UK Code 5 for Sustainable Homes"-compliant homes. A network of streets of three distinct types holds a classic block structure that creates inviting green courtyards. Innovative services provided include: Abundant green, bicycle parking and tracks, opportunities for small-scale urban agriculture and generous shared facilities where the community will meet and connect over time.
