Living in a Cambridgeport apartment
A visitor walking through bustling Central Square Cambridge would never guess that one of the area’s most lovely residential areas was only two blocks away. Cambridgeport MA offers great amenities to anyone looking for an apartment. It’s within easy walking distance of Central Square, one of the Boston area’s busiest transportation hubs, MIT, Harvard University, Boston University, not to mention numerous parks, a winding river along its banks, and not one but three large grocery stores (Trader Joes, Whole Foods, and Star Market).
Cambridgeport is a dense and diverse residential neighborhood that consists mainly of quaint 19th century single and multifamily homes located on smaller side streets. A large industrial area on the edges of the Cambridgeport neighborhood has recently undergone large scale development, resulting in new residential, retail, and office spaces. This development means that Cambridgeport apartments now include large luxury apartments and sleek new lofts with open floor plans. Despite the density and industrial aspects, Cambridgeport is surprisingly green (and not just in the eco sense). There are approximately 10 parks contained within the Cambridgeport district, which means that your Cambridgeport MA apartment will never be more than a few blocks away from one – a true boon for families!
Cambridgeport real estate is valuable not only for its easy living, but also because of its proximity to all the shopping, dining, and transportation of Central SQuare, its main commercial center. This makes the Cambridgeport neighborhood highly desirable for students, faculty, and professionals working in Boston.
