The University is principal developer for the giant mixed-use scheme of 3,000 homes and 2,000 student rooms on green belt land in north west Cambridge.
It won outline planning in February for what will be the largest scale development built to Sustainable Homes Code Level 5 and BREEAM Excellent on all other buildings.
Works on infrastructure will begin this year with completion of Phase One due from late 2015-2016.
A developers briefing will be held on 4 June in Cambridge. Development partners should register at www.nwcdevelopment.co.uk for the next steps.
The masterplan for the 150-hectare mixed-use development also includes a local centre with a supermarket, shops, primary school, nursery, community centre, doctors surgery, hotel and senior living accommodation.
Roger Taylor, Project Director for the North West Cambridge development, said: “It is a superb opportunity for developers, large and small, to be an integral part of the first phase of Cambridge University’s single largest capital development in its 800-year history.”
Phase One at North West Cambridge includes four lots for market housing developers, presenting opportunities to develop a mix of apartments and houses from 65 units to up to 400.
The University has a flexible approach to the configuration of these lots, and will respond to the credentials of each developer on merit and ambition.
