Just A Start (JAS) is proposing the new construction of 100+ units of affordable housing on an underutilized parcel immediately adjacent to Danehy Park in North Cambridge.  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.  The site currently contains a deep asphalt lot with a single story industrial building currently leased as a gym.  

JAS plan to redevelop the site as 100% affordable housing under provisions of the Affordable Housing Overlay (AHO). 

 

JAS began virtual public meetings in February 2021.  Click here to learn more about the proposed development at 52 New Street and view a schedule of upcoming public meetings
