Anchoring what aims to be an entirely new neighborhood in East Cambridge are the Northpoint Condominiums located at 1 & 2 Earhart Street, Cambridge, MA 02141. Northpoint is located at the crossroads of Cambridge and Boston, with access to all that both cities have to offer. Walk across the street to the Lechmere MBTA Green line stop or take the EZRide bus to North Station or Cambridgeport on weekdays.
The first two buildings at the Northpoint development are called Sierra and Tango. Sierra is a 99 unit loft-style building with floor plans of 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom plus den and two bedrooms layouts and 14’ windows. Units are priced starting at $400,000. The Tango building houses 230 flats and duplexes with a wide range of unit types to choose from; from studios to 2 bedrooms plus dens. Prices start at $350,000 for a studio and range up to $900,000+ with the majority in between. After touring the property I left really feeling that one of the best values I have seen in a while is the studio units in the Tango building. Ranging up to 700 sq. ft. , these studios are really set up more like one bedrooms. There are separate bedrooms, the only difference being that there are not doors to the bedroom or windows. If you’re looking for a one bedroom at a studio price in a new construction building then you want to see these! The address for the Tango building is 2 Earhart St.
Though the location, future and amenities of the Northpoint development has been well documented on this blog and in many other media sources, I think a few key selling features of the Sierra and Tango buildings have been overlooked.
First, the condo fees at the building are both affordable and represent a great value for what you pay. Fees include all of the regular items such as water/sewer, maintenance, insurance, etc. but what really stands out are that the gas for heating and cooling is included, an on-site building manager so you know the property will be well kept and best off all there is a 24 hour concierge! Try finding all of that for $300 to $600 per month (depending on the size and location of your unit. The other important fact about Northpoint is not something flashy or that you hear a lot about, but you should. The project is debt free! The developers of the project do not have any financial liabilities outstanding and what that means for the consumer is that they can feel very comfortable making an investment at Northpoint because there won’t be any fire sales or foreclosures at the property adversely affecting their most important asset.
Sierra and Tango are currently 30% sold out so make an appointment with me to go and find the perfect unit for you!
