This is the west most of four blocks, with a total of 292 flats, intended for "key workers" (i.e. public sector workers), in particular doctors and nurses who work at Addenbrooke's Hospital. It was built on a parking lot.

There are no sensible shopping facilities nearby so in effect this has added a residential ghetto in the midst of an existing hospital and biomedical research ghetto, in a similar way to what happened on the university's West Cambridge site.

As is nearly mandatory in most developments, there are solar panels on the roof.
