Description
This table represents all residential building permits. For each construction project the current use, new use, number of permitted units, number of units lost or gained, and location is noted. The date reflects the year during which a building permit was first issued for a development project. This is not an indication of the date of completion. Units and property count includes only new buildings, not major rehabilitation. Data is subject to revision. Data sources include the Cambridge Assessing Department, the Cambridge Community Development Log, and the Cambridge Inspection Services Department. Blank cells indicate a lack of data.
