Porter Square's Rand to Feed Condo-Starved Cambridge 20 Units

Will be mix of 1-BRs, 2-BRs, and a townhouse

If there is one city hereabouts that needs more housing post-haste, it is Cambridge. A perennial for-sale crunch in the People's Republic fuels a climate of bidding wars and over-asks harsh even by Greater Boston standards.

So! When along comes a new development in Cambridge, it's newsworthy (not least, too, because new developments in the city typically leap high hurdles). The ground-up Rand at Porter is expected to bring 20 1- and 2-BR condos to, well, the Porter Square area, just beyond the Red Line stop there. Those 20 units will also include a 3-BR townhouse.

Prices are expected to start at $600,000, and pre-sales should start soon. Stay tuned.
