The city of Cambridge is expanding and this substation was built to accommodate that. In many ways it is a more interesting building than most of the housing in the nearby Orchard Park (Arbury Park) development. The substation building would have been even better if it had some transparent panelling since what is hidden from view is some impressive electric power equipment engineering that should be visible. (It was during construction of the building.)
