Equity One, the would-be re-developer of the string of Harvard Square buildings that contains the world’s only Curious George store as well as Urban Outfitters, is holding a public information session.
The People's Republic is undoubtedly one of New England's most expensive housing markets (if not one of the nation's), so it's little surprise that the city's 10 priciest of 2016 start at $3,350,000 and go way up from there.
From 1973 to 1981, architects Doug Bell and Gerald Fandetti designed about 20 clusters of townhouses in Cambridge for a grand total of approximately 170. They were quirky and capacious, and, for the period at least, energy-efficient.
The owner of a triangle of buildings at John F. Kennedy and Brattle streets in Cambridge plans to add two glassy floors to the properties to create a kind of contiguous shopping mall. Will housing be in the mix, though? The city certainly needs it.
Harvard Square’s 23 Banks Street just hit the sales market again after asking as much as $2,500,000 earlier this year. The airy spread features a fully finished lower level and touches such as Carrara-marble countertops.
The 5-BR, 4.5-BA house dates from 1838, and comes with flourishes such as Doric columns along the front porch, five fireplaces, and bow-front bay windows. It was on the market as of April for the first time in 50-plus years.

The 2,170-square-foot spread has itself only traded twice in the last 20 years: in July 1997 for $1,800,000 and January 2011 for $3,450,000. The 3-BR, 3.5-BA in the full-service building wants a ton more than that this go-round.

The 4,364-square-foot Victorian at 32 Bowdoin Street in Cambridge dropped on March 30 for $4,250,000. That sum made the 10-room house, which was overhauled in 2010, the city's most expensive home on the market. It didn't stay that way for long.
