The 169-unit West of Chestnut apartment complex held its official opening in mid-October. The milestone came as lead developer Gate Residential announced that 70 percent of the apartments had already been leased.
West of Chestnut is supposed to be just the beginning of a transformative development in Quincy Center that could add hundreds more apartments and thousands of square feet of retail—all conveniently located near a Red Line stop.
As the Globe asked in February, “Is it (finally) Quincy Center’s time to shine?” We’ll see.
The Cambridge area around the northern terminus of the Red Line saw additional development and development proposals this year. That development included an AC Hotel, part of a Marriott brand aimed at the hipper business travelers among us, and dozens of apartments—which Cambridge as a whole desperately needs.
