Architects are critical participants in housing policy development and implementation, issues of critical importance to the city and the state. We work with emerging professionals, architects, builders, developers, and public policy thinkers focusing on issues of affordability, sustainability, design, and advocacy.

Northpoint is a hidden gem located on the Charles River, Northpoint Park with direct access to the Lechmere "T" Station. In addition to the already available outdoor amenities with options for kayaking, biking, sailing and jogging, the development will bring retail, dining and entertainment to the streets surrounding the new Green Line "T" station. The new residences, serving a wide range of income levels, will be located at the crossroads of academic and commercial research and innovation, with easy access to hospitals, universities, Cambridge, downtown Boston, surrounding communities along the Green line and other neighborhoods accessible by foot and bicycle. The development anticipate a total of 2,800 housing units when completed.

Please join the Housing and Urban Design Committees on September 24th at 4:30PM to tour the Northpoint Neighborhood and hear from the developer and City of Cambridge's representative about the process to creating this new Transit Oriented Development. We will meet at the Northpoint Park.
