The Development Log provides a record of large-scale development projects occurring in the City of Cambridge. The Log, updated on a quarterly basis, is distributed to City departments and the public to keep them posted about development progress, from permitting through construction to completion. This table includes data about each specific use found within each project. A separate Development Log table includes general project information, such as development status and statistics related to the entire project. The Current Edition Table lists data from all developments found in the last published edition of the Log, whose status range from In Permitting to Complete in the current calendar year. For projects completed in earlier calendar years see Disclaimer: All information that is presented here is accurate to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication. All information stated is subject to revision or retraction at any time.
