CB1 is the regeneration of the Station Road area of Cambridge, with a focus on more sustainable, safer and healthier community living. This new urban community has been designed to complement the elegance and charm of Cambridge, reflecting the city’s finest qualities.

The development is well advanced and when finished, it will be home to state-of-the-art workplaces, desirable housing, and retail and recreational facilities for residents, workers and visitors. The development also includes the restoration of listed buildings and enhancement of Cambridge’s natural attributes and architectural heritage.

A new urban community


CB1 will be filled with new amenities designed with people in mind, including:


Our creative, collaborative and environmentally-friendly offices have attracted some of the world’s most successful brands including Microsoft Research, Amazon, Deloitte, Thales, Carter Jonas and Mott MacDonald.

The four, energy-efficient office buildings are all situated within minutes of the railway station, shops, restaurants and squares. Inside, they’re spacious, modern and flexibly designed to help people work together, while their stylish exteriors complement the surroundings and Cambridge architecture.

Modern transport system

CB1 brings a brand new transport interchange to Cambridge, improving public transport options and significantly reducing the area’s reliance on cars.

The new interchange serves the Cambridgeshire Guided Bus and many conventional bus routes. It provides excellent drop-off and pick-up facilities for taxis, and the country’s largest cycle park, with space for 3,000 bicycles. CB1 is also located in a prime position for commuters - directly in front of Cambridge Railway Station.

3,000 space cycle park



Statues and sculptures offer cultural interest and inspiration for residents, workers and visitors to CB1. The public art programme here helps make art more accessible by displaying it on the streets, buildings and squares.

There are currently seven exhibits on display around CB1 with more to come. Our Station Square centrepiece - a sculpture by British artist Gavin Turk – is soon to be unveiled.
