True loft residences in Cambridge are rare. Next best are loft-style homes. There are three loft-style homes (plus one more which is more traditional) at 30 Jay Street in Cambridgeport, a four-unit association completed and sold out in 2009, with sale prices ranging from $788,000 to $900,000. Highlights at 30 Jay include the oversized windows and fourteen foot high ceilings on the main living level. For sure, a Dwell Magazine candidate.
Private outdoor space and underground garage parking are nice amenities, as are the skywalk roof decks. The cedar and copper siding outside are a refreshing look for Cambridge. If you like this sort of aesthetic (I do), you wish there were other such offerings.
The developer and the architect are to be commended for doing something new and different for Cambridge. Walking through these hip new homes, one is struck by the sense of volume, which is uplifting. A discriminating owner with a sense of style will make any one of these loft-style townhomes a home to envy. I keep seeing a big Chris Johanson art work like Forever is Both Ways For Ever on the living room walll here. Classic modern comes to Cambridge!
