Our team were appointed to explore the redevelopment opportunity of this brownfield site in order to deliver high-density living adjacent to Whittlesford Train Station, located just 20 minutes from Cambridge City Centre. The site was effectively a bowl, far lower than the ground level around it and subjected to significant views from the surrounding countryside. The proposal explored a below ground car parking area, keeping the street level free from private car movements. This enabled the spaces and places around the buildings to take the form of community plazas and gardens serving the apartments above. This scheme is still at the concept stage and looking to progress in the near future.
