An emerging district two miles from the city centre, owned and developed by the University of Cambridge, Eddington is aiming to deliver a sustainable, affordable urban environment for university staff and scholars. Approximately 2,000 currently live there, while much of the area is still being constructed. Its growth is centred around green spaces and award-winning architecture, with the Storey’s Field Centre providing a civic heart, and a venue for the Academy of Urbanism tour.
This tour is led by:
- Jonathan Rose, Masterplanning Director, Prior + Partners
