1.5 million sq ft mixed use development is proposed
Brookgate, the mixed-use development company, is pushing forward with its plans in Chesterton in partnership with Network Rail, DB Schenker Rail, Cambridge County Council, Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council.
Plans are being drawn up for a circa 1.5 million sq ft mixed use development, to be named Cambridge Park, CB4. The site is on the largest brownfield site in the city centre and will include scope for offices, housing , retail and community uses, along with a new passenger train station and transport interchange, close to Cambridge Science Park and Cambridge Business Park.
The new station is due for completion in 2016.
Sven Topel, CEO of Brookgate said: “We have been working closely with Network Rail, DB Schenker Rail and the Councils to ensure that we can build a development that will help regenerate the area. By building a high density development on such a large brownfield site, we are also ensuring there is less pressure on the local green belt as the city continues to expand. This is an exciting project for the team, which has the potential to give a huge boost to the local economy, creating new jobs and housing and enabling further investment in the area. We will continue to work closely with all of our partners to deliver a new quarter for the city.”
Cambridge Park CB4 will be Brookgate’s second major mixed use project in Cambridge. The CB1 masterplan, offering a mixture of commercial, residential and leisure facilities in the city centre, is well underway with significant funding and pre-letting deals already secured.
