Designed by architecture and design practice tp bennett, the building is described as a ‘cube within a cube’.

The façade is part of an art lighting installation that will connect buildings along Station Road.

The development includes new public realm at ground level that will form part of a landscaped ‘linear park’ almost the entire length of Station Road on its southern side, which will be completed with the construction of 10 & 20 Station Road.

Sven Topel, Brookgate’s chief executive, said: “The completion of 30 Station Road is an important moment in the delivery of the central business district for Cambridge.

“CB1 has grown into an undisputed destination for research, tech and professional service companies in the heart of the city, with 30 Station Road set to welcome another global name to the estate, further establishing the development’s position as a hub for world-leading employers.”

Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of Aviva plc, jointly-funded the scheme with the Public Sector Pension Investment Board, one of Canada’s largest pension investment managers.

Aviva Investors’s Melanie Collett said: “30 Station Road – and the wider CB1 development – is an exciting, flagship project in our UK real estate strategy, and we are thrilled to see it reach this milestone.”

Stéphane Jalbert, of PSP Investments, added: “CB1 has proven itself as a global centre of innovation, and 30 Station Road will support the continued growth of this exciting talent and technology hub.”
