3-Building Project in North Quincy to Create 610 Apartments

The Abby, a three-building apartment complex set on a 7.2-acre parking lot adjacent to the Red Line stop, will bring 610 apartments to North Quincy.

The project being developed by Maryland-based Bozzuto Development Company will include 45,000 square feet of retail space, including a Target, as well as a parking garage with 1,314 spaces. 

All of the buildings in the project—named for first lady Abigail Adams, will be connected.

Quincy is seeing a wave of development near its Red Line stops to its proximity to Boston. The Abby is under 25 minutes from Cambridge’s Kendall Square on the Red Line and 15 minutes from Boston’s South Station. The site is also about a mile from I-93.

The complex, designed by Icon Architects, is scheduled to wrap in phases. The first phase includes the garage, which is slated to be ready in summer 2020; Building A, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2021, with 218 apartments and the 40,000-square-foot Target store.

Building B is scheduled to wrap in summer 2021, with 137 apartments and 2,500 square feet of retail space, as well as 219 surface parking spaces.

The second phase will include a 255-unit Building C, which will also have 2,500 square feet of retail space and 130 parking spots for residents. 

Amenities at the Abby will include a fitness center, a solarium, a lounge, a dog spa, a bike-repair area, two landscaped courtyards, and electric-vehicle charging stations.

The development team is also donating $4.8 million to Quincy’s affordable housing trust as well as to public space improvements at North Quincy High School and nearby streets and sidewalks.
