Mixed use development eyed for Cambridge port

CAMBRIDGE — Cambridge officials say a mixed-use redevelopment is planned for the city’s waterfront.

A mixture of commercial, public and possibly some residential properties is being considered for the port property at Sailwinds Park along Franklin Street. The property is owned by the state and leased by the city. The city and state have agreed to develop the property.

Cambridge Economic Development Director Natalie Chabot told The Star Democrat of Easton that an Annapolis developer has been selected for the project. Groundbreaking is planned for next year with a 2015 completion expected.

Chabot said the redevelopment goal for the waterfront is to connect the Hyatt hotel, a visitors center at Sailwinds Park and downtown Cambridge.
