Properties designed to make the everyday extraordinary.


The Cambridge mission is to advocate a true vision for each property that we build.  We continue to create and deliver some of the most distinct and unique properties in the marketplace. Properties that add value, character, common bonds, excellence, and longevity to the communities in which we build. Cambridge Development Group’s attitude for uncompromising perfection has been the foundation of success and successful projects and relationships for 40 years.

“Developing real estate projects is leaving a little of you on this earth. It needs to be thoughtful and great!”

We engage the best design, engineering, construction and management talent to maximize efficiencies and returns.


Development Planning/ Management

A real estate development plan is a road map to the future with respect to a specific real estate location or parcel. There are many different definitions for describing a Development Plan which include:

Construction Oversight/     Management Consulting     

In a Construction Management role we coordinate and supervise the construction process from the conceptual development stage through final construction, working with owners, engineers, architects, and others who are involved in the construction process, making sure that the project gets done on time and within budget.
