Foundation Drilling for Twenty One Station Road
Foundation Drilling for Twenty One Station Road
Part of the CB1 development and displaying the "see, be" (geddit?) branding which is springing up in this part of the city this summer. The offices being built here are earmarked for Microsoft Research and is being built on the site of the demolished Great Eastern House.

The hoardings describe it as "sustainable" office space - what this means is not readily apparent. The artists impression suggests it means leaving a phenomenal number of lights on at night!

Oh and by the way, that's a 20 mph speed limit sign by the "be". This limit may soon be more generally applied to Cambridge streets rather than the present confused arrangements.
