Virido is located just 3 miles south of Cambridge city and the train station, on the newly developing area of Great Kneighton.
The scheme will consist of 208 unique properties, with a mix of residential and retail units.The residential accommodation is arranged in a grid of quads.
At the heart of the site is a new park, the Green Quad. Each ‘quad’ is unique, differently decorated and landscaped. This is reflected in the height and arrangement of homes around it, the elevational treatment, materials and colours used, as well as the nature, layout, landscape and plant species within the shared garden area.
From the street, the glimpses offered to the passer-by through the gated entrances and occasional gaps in the perimeter of these “secret” Quad gardens, will be delightful. Occupiers will be able to enjoy private shared courtyards and roof terraces as well as a larger public green open space and tree-lined streets.
Within each ‘quad’ are a mixture of two and three bedroom apartments and four bedroom houses, placed together in differing permutations to form a quad, with the houses forming the corner stones of each quad. All of which are built to Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes and Lifetime Homes standards. The attractive and contemporary architecture, the sustainable construction, plentiful green spaces, excellent transport connections, including the guided bus and the network of cycle routes, the local facilities and amenities planned; including educational facilities across overall development, plus the proximity to the city centre and Addenbrooke’s Hospital and its research facilities, will make this an exciting urban place to live.
