Brookgate secures two new firms for CB1

Raspberry Pi Foundation and JA Kemp to occupy 30 Station Road

Brookgate has announced two lettings at 30 Station Road, a 22,500 sq ft office block at the heart of CB1, the new city quarter based around Cambridge Station. The deals mean that the three-storey building is now fully let following Birketts’ move to 22 Station Road, Brookgate’s recently completed office development.

Education charity Raspberry Pi Foundation has agreed a five-year lease on a 7,060 sq ft suite  on the second floor.  The organisation specialises in teaching computer programming to children and adults using a tiny and affordable computer.

They will be joined by JA Kemp, a law firm specialising in trade marks and patenting, which will occupy a 1,675 sq ft suite also on the second floor.

Other occupiers at 30 Station Road include Alert Me, Cambridge University and Stone King.  The businesses form part of a major business district at CB1 which also features a cluster of leading companies including Microsoft, Deloitte, Thales and Mott MacDonald.

A spokesperson for Brookgate said: “Raspberry Pi Foundation and JA Kemp are a fantastic addition to the vibrant business community at CB1.  This is proving to be popular location for both growing and well-established firms looking to take advantage of Cambridge’s thriving economy, skilled labour force, amenities and connectivity.”

Parties were advised by Bidwells, Savills, Dodson Jones and Farebrother.
