Things have started to move forward on the new NorthPoint development, a massive, mixed-use (retail, commercial & residential) project where Cambridge & Somerville meet Boston (near the Lechmere T-stop and Museum of Science).
The project’s origin begins back in 2001, when Guilford Transportation first proposed the redevelopment of a portion of their railyards.
Once completed, around the year 2020, there will be over 2,700 condos, 2 million square-feet of commercial space, and 150,000 square feet of retail shops and stores to support the 24-hour a day activity. In fact, the planned project is so large that it will eventually have its own Green Line subway stop (actually, a relocated Lechmere stop).
The development joins other nearby projects such as Museum Towers (recently converted into condos called Regatta Boston), Thomas Graves, OneFirst (made up of five new and converted buildings), the Esplanade, River Court, and the Glass Factory.
If you’re the type who always says, "I wish I knew about this before everyone else," this could be the project(s) for you.
