Lot M3 occupies a landmark site within Cambridge University’s Eddington development, providing 106 highly sustainable private sale apartments that will complete the central market square. A striking east facing façade of stepping bay windows overlooks the new cricket pitch, behind which all the homes are linked by a sheltered north-south courtyard that gives light and airy circulation.

PTE is providing a full service from concept to completion.

The scheme emphasises the importance of quality shared and public areas and incorporates two floors of street facing gallery/exhibition space at the prominent corner of the site. Resident facilities include a porter’s lodge, club room, secure underground parking and extensive managed rooftop gardens.

The compact courtyard and rich architectural modelling echo the intricacy of historic Cambridge in a contemporary idiom. The low carbon (CfSH level 5) buildings are arranged across eight blocks, ranging in height from 3 to 5 storeys, with most homes having dual aspect accommodation.

Working alongside Hill, the proposals were developed in close collaboration with the University and connect to the new low carbon district energy centre and innovative network of underground waste collection points.

This is a very exciting time for Cambridge, which is a growth city with a strong economic base and great prospects. Demand for high quality new homes is high but the city is taking control of its future, making every effort to create the new homes and infrastructure that local people need. This is our second phase at the North West Cambridge Development, which will be a dynamic and vibrant new community. We are looking forward to working with the University to help shape its future, where our plans for Eddington Avenue will create a real landmark for the site.”
Andy Hill, Chief Executive, Hill
North West Cambridge will contribute to the long-term success of the city and the university. The partnership working amongst the University team with the local authorities and developers, alongside the commendation from industry professionals, is a positive endorsement that the project will deliver real benefit for the good of our community.”
