Ceres

Cambridge CB1

Welcome to CERES

Cambridge. It's a city of many faces - academic, commercial, cultural. But now there's a new, yet old, face on the block, Ceres.

Ceres is part of the CB1 redevelopment to create a new gateway to Cambridge - befitting of its worldclass status - that will transform the Station Road area.
The new state-of-the-art transport interchange and magnificent new Station Square will sit comfortably alongside the preserved Grade II listed railway building and distinctive Fosters Mill.
Through the square and to the left are the striking Ceres apartments, whereas the wider development opens up in all directions - with its shops, open spaces, public art, hotel and prestigious offices.
This is a vibrant, dynamic environment - the perfect place to set up home and live life to the full. It's also the gateway to everything Cambridge has to offer. 

Ceres is an iconic new development of 19 beautifully restored Mill apartments and 87 prestigious modern apartments set within the new city quarter Cambridge, CB1.

The imposing Fosters Mill building was built in 1896 for the wealthy Foster family who were merchants and bankers. Stepped roofs, elaborate gables and a prominent castellated water tower originally topped its restrained colonnade architecture, so eloquently designed by Calder and Kitchen of Hull.
Today, this important Cambridge landmark is a rare example of pre-twentieth century industrial architecture - the reason why its distinct silhouette has been retained.

Ceres has a real sense of energy and community. Whether it's the high spec apartments themselves or the spacious park, piazza and 'pocket' parks, all have been meticulously designed and landscaped so you can be active or relaxed, social or alone. To be yourself.
Architecturally, Ceres has its own unique character too. One that complements Cambridge's traditional charm, by fusing contemporary design with the heritage of Foster's Mill and the station building.

One striking feature of the apartments is the balconies. Every apartment has an outdoor space, balconies that 'pop out' to catch sunlight and offer full or partial views of the park or the piazza. Penthouses, on the other hand, are purposefully set back - their private terraces offering unfettered park views. Intricate metalwork as been used on many balconies to create an appealing and contemporty visual effect. 

The park at Ceres is a flexible, multi-purpose space, sub-divided into areas by the effective and dramatic use of landscaping and height. This allows for both relaxation and recreation. The main open space and children's area is set below the rest of the park and creates an informal 'amphitheatre' for play and more active pursuits. An impressive array of trees and plants add seasonal interest, enhance biodiversity and give distinct character to different areas.

The pocket parks are the equivalent of three sheltered 'front' gardens to the four residential blocks, these are smaller open spaces that act as a calm backdrop from the bustle of Station Square - and are ideal for relaxing and meeting people.

The piazza,  located at the northern end of the four blocks, acts as an antechamber between the park and Station Square. Think café culture, coffee and chats.

The apartments at Ceres are stunning one, two and three bedrooms and penthouses which have been carefully designed with layouts that can cater for differing lifestyles.
The unique balconies, large picture windows and orientation of the apartments mean that the visual divide between inside and outside is cleverly blurred. This offers a sense of space and a connection to the outside that few modern apartments can deliver.

Discover Cambridge

Discover Cambridge. It may sound like a simple proposition, but this is a city of contrasts.

There's tranquil Cambridge where you can relax on the banks of the willow-lined River Cam, home to punters and rowers alike, visit the Fitzwilliam Museum to admire Constables, Hogarths and Gainboroughs or dine in a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Then there's buzzy Cambridge, with its Grand Arcade shopping centre to designer boutiques and artisan markets, offering a comprehensive shopping experience. While culture vultures can catch some of music's biggest names alongside comedy acts, theatre and classical music at the lively Corn Exchange.

And let's not forget historic Cambridge and innovative Cambridge. In the University buildings, future Nobel prize winners apply themselves, while in the modern science parks, software and bioscience pioneers drive the city's robust micro-economy.

Cambridge is a great place to be. It's a bustling, prosperous, cosmopolitan city that attracts academics, students, tourists and businesses from around the world.
