Phase 2 plans

Ideas, new treatments and devices are being developed at Cambridge Biomedical Campus to meet the demands of the world’s healthcare challenges. We succeed because of the strength of our ecosystem which allows ideas to develop and flourish. We have the physical space to accommodate new and expanding companies and the international connections to be the global hub for content and research.  Having nurtured companies, developed a highly skilled workforce and encouraged outside investment in Cambridge, the Campus is ready  to create and welcome the next generation of companies. Construction has started for a multi-occupancy laboratory/office building of 100,000 sq ft, scheduled to be available in Q3 2023. Alternatively, bespoke single occupancy buildings can be developed to suit occupier needs. To discuss the development opportunities in Phase 2 of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, please contact one of our agents at the bottom of the page. 6 reasons to locate to CBC.

In 2009, planning permission covering 70 acres became the catalyst for the first phase expansion of the campus, raising its status into a truly internationally competing academic health science centre.

The ensuing years have seen new committed development hit 1,800,000 sq ft gross (167,224 sq m).

With the Phase 1 expansion land now fully committed, the development of the Phase 2 expansion land is now underway. With a landscape-led approach, this next stage will thread a series of new high specification office and laboratory buildings between a string of green, shared spaces, enhanced by public art, to promote formal and informal meetings.

The total Phase 2 floor area available for development is 807,000 sq ft (75,000 sq m) gross, comprising 636,000 sq ft (59,000 sq m) of commercial floor space, including Abcam, and 171,000 sf ft gross (15,900 sq m) of clinical floor space.

Anchoring the Phase 2 expansion land is the Abcam headquarters. The next building now under construction, adjacent to Abcam is 1000 Discovery Drive, a speculatively developed laboratory/office building of 100,000 sq ft (9290 sq m) net, over 5 storeys, scheduled to be available Q3 2023.
