Work and live in Cambridge thanks to new technology hotspot
As Cambridge’s reputation as a leading hub for technology innovation grows – with 1,062 tech startups created in the past year – businesses and entrepreneurs looking for commercial and residential property in the city could have the perfect opportunity on their doorstep.
Some 14,300 sq ft of commercial space is available at Marleigh, the new mixed-used residential scheme in East Cambridge.
Developed by Hill Group and Marshall, Marleigh is a new neighbourhood consisting of 1,300 new homes, commercial spaces and a wealth of community facilities being built on Newmarket Road, bordering expanses of greens spaces right next to Gregory Park and Kingsley Woods.
A major park and ride facility for easy access to town, a petrol station and other services are also just a stone’s throw from direct links to the A14 and other key trade highways.
Available on the first phase of the development, the commercial opportunity offers 6,241 sq ft of office and 8,067 sq ft of retail space. The offices are finished to shell and core to provide future tenants with maximum flexibility to incorporate specific fit-out requirements in the final design. Car parking spaces, cycle parking and high-speed fibre optic broadband are all part of the commercial package.
Out of the three retails units, the principal one has been leased to Co-op for a new 4,000 sq ft store whilst the other two units are still available to rent.
Alongside the commercial aspect, Marleigh will also offer a new lifestyle destination for an attractive work/life balance. The new neighbourhood, once completed, will offer a selection of 1,300 apartments and homes.
The Hanger Building will provide a community hall, offices, nursery (Monkey Puzzle) and a café for residents and workers. A new primary school, Marleigh Primary Academy, will be opening in September 2022 to make family living easier with sports pitches, allotments, woodland walks and a park.
