The Mass + Main complex is one of Cambridge’s more consequential developments planned or underway, and it just got bigger. Developer Twining Properties has increased the number of apartments planned for the Central Square development from 232 to 260, an increase of 12 percent. What’s more, the number of apartments designated as affordable has increased by about a half-dozen.
Cambridge will, of course, take all that it can get in terms of new housing. The city has a cartoonishly low supply. But! Construction on Mass + Main, which is due to include a 195-foot tower, will likely not start until the summer of 2017, pending the necessary permits. It would therefore not wrap until the latter half of 2019.
That is a long way off in a town where $2,400/month for a 1-BR is a steal. Stay tuned.
