The above photo shows the final construction beam being laid in place Wednesday at Twenty|20, the 20-floor apartment building going up at 20 Child Street (get it?) in Cambridge's NorthPoint neighborhood-in-the-making.
Twenty|20 is expected to have 355 luxury apartments as well as 9,000 square feet of commercial space when all is said and done, which is expected to be this time next year. It's not entirely clear what the rents will be, but it is entirely clear that the tower will grow up in Cambridge's newest neighborhood. NorthPoint is slated to drop 5 million square feet of residential, office and retail over 45 acres in the Charlestown borderlands. It also means changes for the Orange Line. Below is what Twenty|20 is supposed to look like in the end, courtesy of lead developer HYM.
