curbed-boston-logoMuch was made (and rightfully so) about the groundbreaking last week for a 355-unit apartment tower at NorthPoint, Cambridge‘s soon-to-be newest neighborhood.

All total, NorthPoint is expected to grow residential-wise to about 2,900 apartments and condos (the whole shebang could spread to 5 million square feet of retail, residences and offices over 45 acres, the last big slice of undeveloped land in the People’s Republic). There were at least two other buildings already on the scene by the time of last week’s groundbreaking, though: One and Two Earhart.
