Cambridge Wicked Local

Nauset Construction announced Feb. 3 that construction is underway for Temple Place, a six-story apartment complex that will provide 40 units of affordable housing to Cambridge residents.

The $11 million project will be built on the site of the former YWCA swimming pool building and will consist of a mix of one- and two-bedroom units, with several units specially designed for universal access or for residents with visual or hearing impairments.

This development will help the Cambridge Affordable Housing Corporation, a non-profit affiliate of the Cambridge Housing Authority and project owner, address the demand for affordable housing in the city. Situated in the busy Central Square neighborhood, and adjacent to the existing YWCA, the tight urban location requires heightened planning and safety measures, according to Nauset president Anthony Papantonis. {….}
