CB1 – the new city quarter for Cambridge

Introducing the new kid on the block

We take a closer look at 50/60 Station Road as the time for it to open draws near

You might have noticed hoardings have been taken down around 50/60 Station Road as the building nears completion.

The quality of both the architecture and the location has led a number of high profile employers to chose 50/60 as their new home: Samsung will move in its new Artificial Intelligence (AI) development team, and others who have signed up to take space in the building include law practice Eversheds Sutherland, financial consulting firm Charles River Associates and engineering consultancy Peter Brett Associates. Watch this space to hear about further companies moving in over the next few months, as the CB1 Estate continues to support jobs in Cambridge and the local economy.

50/60 follows the strong design standard set by other new buildings at CB1, such as One the Square, which has won awards for its office space. This new building is designed by Grimshaw, a leading British architecture practice. While the striking façades have been complete for some time, the area at the base of the new 50/60 building has now been landscaped and opened up to create a wider, brighter, and greener walk down Station Road for pedestrians, and an improved look and feel for cyclists, drivers and bus riders.

The opening of 50/60 Station Road in the coming months will be an exciting milestone in the ongoing development of CB1. As well as welcoming more jobs and businesses to the area, the building is set to further enliven the estate by adding further to the variety of great food as well as introducing new amenities.
