Quincy, MA – Callahan Construction Managers broke ground recently on the North Quincy Station redevelopment project (The Abby).

The project is designed by ICON Architecture and is owned and developed by The Bozzuto Group and Atlantic Development.

The North Quincy Station redevelopment project will feature three buildings with 610 high-end apartments and 50,000sf of retail space, as well as an above grade garage with more than 1,500 parking spots, of which 852 will be reserved for commuters.

Residents will have access to many luxury amenities including two outdoor courtyards, a pool deck, club lounge, commercial kitchen, and fitness center with yoga and spin classes.

The first phase of the project will include construction for the six-story parking garage. The residential potion of the project will be delivered over two phases with the first units available for occupancy in May of 2021 and the second phase in January 2022. The North Quincy Station Redevelopment project is scheduled to be completed by spring 2022.

Residents will have direct access to the MBTA Red Line, allowing them to travel to downtown Boston in as little as 10 minutes. As a transit-oriented development, the construction and design for the project required extensive planning and permitting.

Callahan’s project team members worked closely with the MBTA to develop logistics and phasing plans that allowed commuters continuous access to the Red Line throughout construction.
