The University of Cambridge is seeking a hotel developer to be part of the North West Cambridge Development. 


Roger Taylor, Project Director of the North West Cambridge Development said: “As a world-leading university that welcomes people to the city from around the globe, this development is a rare opportunity for the creation of a hotel that will serve both the University and local economy. The University, as principal developer, will be providing infrastructure and a site for the successful hotel developer to acquire in the heart of the new local centre on the North West Cambridge Development, which will be an attractive place for future residents to live and work.” 


Outline planning consent for the 150-hectare mixed-use site was granted in February 2013 which includes residential and research buildings as well as important community facilities. The hotel site will be located in the local centre, close to amenities including a supermarket, retail units, community centre and green, open space. 

The University has been working with 11 architectural teams to create a strong sense of place of the highest design quality that aims to reflect the characteristics of being an urban extension to Cambridge. The development will be an exemplar of sustainable living with non-residential buildings meeting BREEAM Excellent standard across the site. 

Site-wide infrastructure contracts have been let and Phase One completions are expected from 2016.
