Cambridge Crossing – A Planned Community

Workforce Housing

At Cambridge Crossing, 16 of our homes are set aside for purchasers whose household income meets certain criteria. Generally, the income limit is determined by the number of bedrooms in the house. These homes will have a deed restriction keeping them as Workforce for a period of 30 years from when first occupied.

Cambridge Crossing is a thoughtfully planned community which offers low maintenance living, highly energy efficient homes, and the low monthly HOA fee includes grounds maintenance and snow removal. Cambridge Crossing offers public water, public sewers and homes are heated with natural gas.

What is workforce housing?

The Workforce Housing Overlay Zone (WHOZ) is intended to create additional housing opportunities within Simsbury while promoting the appropriate development of Simsbury’s historic Town center and other areas of the community.
