Works continue at Eddington Hotel
Work is progressing on the Eddington Hotel with construction work expected to finish in the summer/autumn of 2021.
The Hyatt hotel will have 150 rooms, a restaurant, seasonal roof terrace, coffee shop and co-working space.
The boutique Locke aparthotel, Turing Locke, will have 180 studio apartments as well as a cocktail bar, additional co-working space, workout studio and meeting rooms. The hotel’s facilities will be open for Eddington’s residents and visitors to use, as well as guests.
The building surrounds a central courtyard garden that is open to all, providing the Eddington community with another green and open space to enjoy.
Continuing construction work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic created challenges, but contractor Gilbert-Ash have rigorously implemented the necessary measures to allow work to continue safely.
Scaffolding is now being removed from parts of the site, with the building’s detailed brickwork and rain screen cladding now visible to passers-by.
The four-storey hotel, which was designed by Sterling Prize-winning architects dRMM, will be operated by edyn.
Stephen McCall, CEO of edyn, said: “Eddington will become a thriving destination which will compliment Cambridge’s rich and diverse community with its tradition of curiosity and discovery. We are excited to be investing in this important destination, one of the biggest centres for knowledge in the world.”
Brian Nearney, Director at Eddington, said: “We are excited to see the Eddington Hotel nearing completion. As well as providing visitors with beautiful rooms to stay in, the hotel will offer our existing community with even more fantastic facilities to enjoy at Eddington. With a rooftop terrace, coffee bar, co-working space and beautiful central garden, the Eddington Hotel is going to quickly become a social hub for Eddington and beyond.”
