Hotel developer sought for University of Cambridge project

The University of Cambridge is seeking a hotel developer to be involved in what is the establishment's largest single capital project in its 800-year history.

Outline planning consent has been granted for the 150-hectre site of university farmland to be developed as a sustainable, urban extension to the city. As well as a hotel, the North West Cambridge Development will include 3,000 homes, 2,000 post-graduate student space, 100,000 sq m of research space, a primary school, doctors' surgery and retail units.

Roger Taylor, project director of the North West Cambridge Development said that the university, as principal developer, will be providing infrastructure and a site for the development.

"As a world-leading university that welcomes people to the city from around the globe, this development is a rare opportunity for the creation of a hotel that will serve both the university and local economy."
