A new £20 million luxury hotel development on the edge of Cambridge could create over 100 new jobs for local people as well as offering some excellent business opportunities for innovative businesses in the area.


The Radisson Blu Hotel will be housed on Cambridge Science Park and will boast over 296 rooms and an international standard conference centre and restaurant.


Located next to the Trinity Centre, the development will create more than 100 new jobs if given the go ahead, as well as offering new opportunities for local businesses who specialise in areas such as transport, cleaning, construction and building maintenance.


John Bridge, CEO of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, outlined the benefits the hotel could bring to the city: “It is an accolade that a firm such as Radisson wants to build a hotel in Cambridge because it demonstrates that a business such as this has faith in the city.

“As 44 per cent of people in Cambridge are public sector employees, we have a real challenge on our hands to create more private sector jobs. This is great news and a real vote of confidence in the economy.”


If the plans are given the go ahead, building could start as early as June 2011.
