Support New Affordable Housing at 52 New Street

Just A Start, a Cambridge housing and education nonprofit, is proposing to add new affordable apartments at 52 New Street in West Cambridge. 52 New Street will create, 107 new affordable apartments in a modern, environmentally sustainable community.

52 New Street is the first project for approval under the City of Cambridge's new Affordable Housing Overlay. And you can make a real difference – public support significantly improves the project's chance of success.

Please help create more housing and support the success of the Affordable Housing Overlay by signing this petition!


Why 52 New Street?

Cambridge is a thriving city with many resources, but opportunities for family-sustaining work, quality education, and affordable homes have not been accessible to all residents. As a nonprofit community development corporation, Just A Start is focused on creating livable, vibrant communities guided by shared needs. Together we can create 106 new apartments, helping more families to live affordably in Cambridge.

Access to housing that a wide range of people can afford is a key ingredient in a healthy, vibrant community. Quality, stable housing is linked to higher student achievement, better health and well-being outcomes, and increased economic mobility. Our community is healthier and stronger when people's homes-- like 52 New Street-- are located near their jobs, schools, parks, bike paths, public transit, and grocery stores.
