New Cambridge funds to push EDAW development
EDAW’s masterplan for north-west Cambridge is one of two schemes that could benefit from Cambridge University’s decision to raise new funds
For the first time in its 800 year history the university is considering selling bonds to raise almost £300 million to put towards the huge EDAW-led (now AECOM Design + Planning) project as well as another scheme for the New Museum site at the city centre.
The 140ha development (pictured) has been designed in collaboration by architects Maccreanor Lavington and Wilkinson Eyre and could feature up to 1,500 new homes for university staff and accommodation for 2,000 postgraduate students.
The scheme is also expected to feature 50,000 m² of academic facilities, 50,000m² of research and development space, public open space, community facilities, an hotel, transport provision including cycle ways and up to 1,500 private homes.
