The Building at 1707-1709 Cambridge Street is an multifamily house at 1707-1709 Cambridge Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame Greek Revival building was built in 1845 as a speculative rental property for Royal Richardson. It is one of four such buildings (of which this and the next door property survive) ordered by Richardson. The survival of the contracts for their construction adds to their importance in understanding 19th century building practices.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
