Brookgate’s landmark office building in the CB1 development has won the British Council for Offices’ Commercial Workplace Award for the Midlands & Central England region.

We're proud to announce that One the Square, the landmark building opposite the main station in the CB1 development, has won 'Best Commercial Workplace Award' in the Midlands and Central England regional category. It will now be submitted for the national round of the British Council for Offices competition.

Home to Amazon, Deloitte, Thales and Carter Jonas, the prominent 129,000 sq ft office and retail development opposite Cambridge train station has attracted quality employers to CB1, such that the area is fast becoming the City’s Central Business District.

The BCO judges noted that One Station Square has created a sense of place and improved the arrival experience to the City. They were also impressed that the building has delivered office space that is both commercially attractive to a range of national and multinational occupiers and provides a gateway to the ‘Cambridge Phenomenon’ of Innovation and Enterprise.


“One Station Square has delivered the size, standard and flexibility of office space that large companies are looking for and enabled them to expand within Cambridge, bringing jobs with them. We’re delighted that this highly successful development has been recognised by the BCO and look forward to going through to compete with other regional winners for a national award.”
Sven Topel, CEO at Brookgate.
