Nauset Breaks Ground on Mixed-Use Complex in Central Square, Cambridge
BOSTON — Nauset Construction has started construction on a mixed-use project at Ten Essex St. in Cambridge, Mass., that will transform a surface parking lot into a transit-oriented five-story development with 46 apartments and 3,000 square feet of retail space. The project is being built by Nauset for owner 3MJ Realty. Designed by Golden Architects of Quincy, Perkins Eastman and Mark Boyes-Watson Architects, the project is located directly on the Central Square Red Line. Amenities will include a rooftop patio and second-floor deck, bike storage, a green roof terrace and balconies in several of the units. Café Nero and H Mart, an Asian-inspired supermarket, will anchor the ground floor. Nauset previously converted the Holmes building in Central Square from offices to apartments in 2013. The project is slated for completion in January 2019.
