THE HOBSON CAMBRIDGE CB2 Located on St Andrews Street in the city centre, renovation and conversion of a Grade II listed former police station – itself a Victorian redevelopment of a site owned by Elizabethan philanthropist Thomas Hobson. He coined the phrase ‘Hobson’s Choice’ by insisting that customers at his stables took the horse he wanted them to ‘or none at all’. Glorious Victorian Gothic detail includes vaulted ceilings, arched windows, stained glass, highly detailed stonework and woodwork. The redevelopment into a 62-room apartment hotel reflects our ‘Edited Service’ concept, creating a unique blend of contemporary and historic around a glazed central courtyard. Valuation: £17.5m
