Cambridge 2000: Station Place: Crick House
This was the first building finished as part of the CB1
development, and is located a stone's throw from the
Cambridge faces a difficult task with planning,
since any housing anywhere near the train station is immediately
swamped by London commuters, and so pretty much any such
housing is useless for actually accommodating the workers
of Cambridge. This large, anonymous, block got around that
problem because it was built specifically for students of
Anglia Ruskin University.
Unfortunately in some sense this is an even worse use of
the land, since there is no need for students to live near
a major transport interchange.
