New Porter Square Lofts Coming

Porter Square in Cambridge is getting new apartments!  The area that is home to Lesley University will soon hold 27 new loft style units accompanied by parking spaces.  Could Porter Square become a new hot neighborhood?  Only time will tell.

Curbed Boston reports, the “27 loft-style apartments are going up at the site [of the old Gourmet Express at 1868 Mass. Ave. in Porter Square], along with a staggering 42 parking spaces (come on, it’s right by the Porter T stop!) and ground-floor retail big enough for three stores and an office. Fifteen of those parking spaces will be reserved for Lesley University use. Developer Peter Wasserman has dubbed the five-story development the Platine Residences.”

Additional details are available on Curbed’s Boston website.
