Just seen this development on corner of Sturton Street and Geldart Street. Described as desirable residential area of the city. Is this the case? Any background on this development?

It's desirable in that it's remotely near the centre of "recession-proof" Cambridge and historically the "affordable" side of town; former workers terraces, then the kind of place teachers bought, nowadays rent farmer central with many, many students. If you like students and some young families it's a perfectly good area to live. The new developments I can't vouch for tho I have seen IMO ludicrous prices soften a bit from time to time.

Thanks. I meant to post in the busier Cambridge thread, but got it wrong.

Again, thanks for taking the time to answer.
