This new development on a prominent site close to the city centre will provide serviced apartments, community facilities and townhouses. The ‘aparthotel’ will contain a mix of studio, 1 bed and duplex 2 bed apartments along with a restaurant, social hub area, spa ,pool and courtyard garden. A community space at the ground floor has its own small kitchen and wc facilities and is adjacent to a small deli/ cafe, also for public use. A basement car park provides off- street parking for residents of the apartments, the townhouses have dedicated on street parking as well as private gardens and roof terraces.
The scheme responds in a considered and sensitive way to the scale and character of the residential context but retains a high degree of modularity and efficiency. The townhouses address a new ‘street’ that has the possibility to connect in the longer term to proposed adjacent development.
The scheme will meet an identified demand for longer term research and business ‘visitors’ to the city and in doing so, support the continued success of the Cambridge phenomenon.
