Close of Business on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, marked the close of the response period for the Cambridge Harbor Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) issued on July 15, 2022. Cambridge Waterfront Development, Inc. (CWDI), the non-profit development corporation formed to develop Cambridge Harbor, is pleased to report the general results of the REOI process.
Near and around Cambridge Harbor there are various destinations focused on preserving and honoring the legacy of Harriet Tubman. Born into the chains of slavery in Dorchester County in 1822, made her escape north in 1849. Over a dozen times Tubman risked her life to lead enslaved friends and family to freedom as a conductor of the Underground Railroad.
Cambridge’s industry grew rapidly following the Civil War. A charter was granted to the Cambridge Harbor Internal Navigation and Wharf Company to cover the costs, around $7,500, to move the riverbed with mud machines.
On June 7, 2022 Cambridge Waterfront Development, Inc. (CWDI) presented an updated site plan for Cambridge Harbor and a project status update to the City, of Cambridge Planning Commission. The updated Cambridge Harbor site plan is the result of the latest round of public comments.
