Living Cambridge

Grosvenor in Cambridge

We are currently active in the residential market in Cambridge. Recent projects include Parkside Place, 99 apartments in the city centre alongside the new Cambridge and Peterborough Fire Station, and the construction of 1,200 new homes at Trumpington Meadows just outside of Cambridge. 

Grosvenor also hopes to deliver a new community stadium in Newmarket Road, Abbey and the Cambridge Sporting Village in Trumpington. The proposals will revolutionise the quality and quantity of sports and community facilities in Cambridge. The new facilities will also allow Cambridge United Football Club to stay at the R Costings Abbey Stadium.

My Cambridge

 A personal view by Alex Robinson

"It's great to be working in a city like Cambridge which has such a strong local economy and a city centre which has a remarkably well preserved historical heart. Grosvenor has been working in Cambridge for over 30 years and the opportunity to build on our legacy there is very exciting."


Alex Robinson, Development Manager, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland

Grosvenor's city insights

  1. The birthplace of modern football

    Football fanatics should visit the green space of Parker's Piece, the venue for the first ever game of association football.

  2. A history of innovation

    While Cambridge is a city steeped in history it is also home to some of the most advanced technology and biomedical companies. Alongside its world-famous university, this has helped make this compact city an internationally-renowned location for business and education, attracting property investors from around the world.

  3. A cyclers' paradise

    To see the city like the locals it is best to stick to two wheels. As a university town lying on fairly flat ground and with traffic congestion, Cambridge is reported to have the highest level of cycle use in the UK.

Trumpington Meadows country park

The Trumpington Meadows residential-led development just outside of Cambridge features a 58-hectare country park open to the public, including hectare allotments for the local community.
