At least that's the plan: A seven-story building in the Somerville-Cambridge borderlands once used for frozen storage is supposed to morph into an apartment complex.
A Boston-based developer has bought Nos. 9 and 39 on Medford Street with the intention of plunking an eighth floor on it on the way to creating 100 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments (time to update our New-Rental Heatmap!).
The addresses were until earlier this year used as storage for frozen foods headed to restaurants. The developer, Berkeley Investments of Boston, is wending its way through the zoning and approval processes; and hopes to heat things up in the spring for a fall 2015 opening. Stay tuned.
