"Is Cambridge Building Enough Housing? Technically, Yes"

"Is Cambridge Building Enough Housing? Technically, Yes"

What are you looking at above? A chart courtesy of the office of Cambridge City Councilman Dennis Carlone. It shows the construction of new housing in the city over the last quarter-century; and as you can clearly see that construction has largely been going up. From an explanation accompanying the graph: "Over the past decade, some 4,087 units of new housing have been built in the City of Cambridge — with 1,356 of those units being built since 2010. In addition, there are some 5,408units of new housing in construction or permitted for construction across the City right now." Will this be enough to bring down the city's notoriously high rents and prices?
