Revised plans for the proposed first phase of Cambridge's £850m ($1.3bn) station area redevelopment in the UK have been submitted to the local council.

The first phase, featuring four blocks of the scheme, will include accommodations for about 500 students and retail spaces.

Brookgate, the firm behind the scheme, also submitted plans for the 83,500ft² seven-storey new Microsoft office block on the corner of Station Road and Tenison Road.

The revised designs are a culmination of discussions with Cambridge City Council and English Heritage after the earlier proposals were rejected in June.

The improved plan features Victorian designs, while buildings closest to the station are of industrial character, according to cambridge-news.co.uk.
