Formation wins green light for Cambridge station square schemes

  • 1 Comment

Plans by Formation Architects for two mixed-use buildings in Station Square, Cambridge, have been granted planning permission by the city council

Backed by developer Brookgate, the proposals for 3 and 4 The Square include 767m² office space, shops, restaurants, 89 flats, cycling and car parking spaces.

The pair of buildings will complete the new Station Square, the centrepiece of the CB1 regeneration scheme which includes the entire station area and which has been masterplanned by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (see AJ 11.06.07). 

A former silo building, which was destroyed in a fire in 2010, will also be demolished and replaced by 3 The Square. The building, described as a ‘lozenge shape’ with a two-storey ‘crown’ at the top, will adopt the vertical proportions and height of the former landmark.

Formation Architects recently completed 2 The Square, which contains an Ibis hotel and the largest multi storey cycle park in the UK.

Michael Richter, director of Formation Architects, said: ’The new Station Square will provide a sense of arrival for thousands of commuters and tourists arriving daily by train. We are very proud to be able to contribute to this first impression with our buildings and hope that they will become part of the fabric of this great city.’

Work is expected to start on site in early 2018.
