CGI of the proposed development
The project has been developed by Marick Real Estate, in collaboration with Cambridge City Council, and Staycity as well as through consultation with relevant stakeholders and the community.
Cambridge City Council will be the operator of the car park and cycle facilities. Cambridge City Council is currently the freeholder of the site and will continue to own the site post completion. Staycity will be the hotel operator and tenant and will manage the hotel, the courtyard and surrounds. The scheme was provided with planning permission in December 2019 and the full application can be viewed on Cambridge City Council’s Planning Portal with the planning reference 19/1159/FUL.
The Aparthotel will consist of the following:
Five storey 229 room premium Aparthotel, which includes a gym, lounge & café
Replacement of existing Council car park with new triple basement, which remains in the ownership and management of the Council’s Car Park team
225 parking spaces including 16 blue badge parking spaces, 270 cycle parking spaces, 20 motorcycle spaces with improved and enhanced security
New courtyard with landscaping and public artwork linking Jordan Yard to Park Street
Hotel will not have any dedicated or preferential parking provision in the car park;
Hotel design to be adaptable as much as possible for future use;
Logistics in proximity to the school
It is understood that the Primary School has Coach trips a 1-2 times per term circa 8 times a year. These are picked up and dropped off at Park Street. The parking zone may need to be adjusted and agreed, to coordinate with construction and Maypole vehicle traffic. There will be regular communication in regard to coordination of these activities with the on site banksman.
Gilbert Ash will work with the school in coordination and consideration of the school children and members of public relating to the school.
C of E Primary School peak times are understood to be 8:30 –9am and 15-15:30 (Monday to Friday) vehicle movements will strive to avoid these periods as much as possible.

Earlier completion of car park prior to the hotel completion;
225 parking spaces (including 16no. disabled provision);
26 active electric charging points, 100% remaining future charging provision and capacity;
