Is Cambridge Redefining Marketing Conventions? Rents in the city of Cambridge and its surrounding prime parks are now ahead of other ‘provincial’ UK office centres and the M25 market.

Capital Park is a specialised office park focused on providing workspaces for high-growth businesses. The park is located in Fulbourn, close to the centre of Cambridge, a town known for its prestigious university and dynamic skilled workforce.
The East West Rail Link, also called the Varsity Line, is the railway route that once linked Oxford and Cambridge. It allowed for quick and easy travel between the two university towns, and also provided easy access to Milton Keynes.
Build to Rent is a term used to describe private rented residential property, which is designed for rent instead of for sale. As the name suggests, Build to Rent (B2R) involves the building of homes specifically for the rental market. These developments are typically owned by companies (such as property companies or pension or insurance investment companies), and let directly or through an agent. B2R is an emerging, fast-growing market in the United Kingdom.
