Just A Start (JAS) is in the process of assembling financing in order to begin construction of 52 New Street. This new construction project, located in North Cambridge immediately adjacent to Danehy Park, will result in the creation of 107 units of affordable rental housing, including 84 family-sized two- and three-bedroom apartments. The site is well located for housing, in close proximity to many amenities in the neighborhood including the Fresh Pond reservoir, Fresh Pond shopping areas, public transit, and Danehy Park.     

JAS will be developing the site as 100% affordable housing under provisions of the Affordable Housing Overlay (AHO). 

 

JAS completed the AHO process in January 2022 and is now in the process of assembling financing in order to begin construction. Click here to read the final AHO advisory design report issued by the Planning Board.
