Set at the heart of the first phase of the North West Cambridge development, Lot M3 occupies a key position within the wider Masterplan. It has a striking and varied context facing two public squares to the north and has a long frontage to a cricket oval to the east.
The 106 apartments are arranged across eight blocks, ranging in height from 3 to 5 storeys, and are all entered from the Long Gallery.
PTE is providing a full service from concept to completion.
The North West Cambridge Development is the largest single capital project that the University of Cambridge has undertaken in its 800-year history. Outline planning permission was granted in February 2013 for the scheme, subject to approval of site-wide legal conditions and Reserved Matters Applications, on the 150-hectare site of University farmland situated in between Huntingdon Road, Madingley Road and the M11.
The masterplan includes 3,000 homes (50% ‘key worker’ housing, available for qualifying University and Colleges employees), 2,000 post-graduate student spaces, 100,000 sqm of research space, a local centre and community facilities including a primary school, nursery, doctors’ surgery, supermarket and retail units, as well as all of the site-infrastructure and landscaping for the scheme. The development has been designed as an extension to the city, with an urban rather than suburban grain and will be of the highest design quality as well as being an exemplar of sustainable living.
