A five-story, 180-unit apartment complex called Deco just opened at 625 Thomas E. Burgin Parkway in South Quincy, just across from the Quincy Adams Red Line stop. Studios start at $1,910 a month and are 617 square feet. One-bedrooms with one bathroom start at $2,135, and range from 743 to 846 square feet. And 2-BR, 2-BA apartments start at $2,665, and range from 1,013 to 1,316 square feet.
Such sums are relative steals by Boston stands, which is kind of the point of Deco. Developer Cabot Cabot & Forbes and manager/marketer Bozzuto have positioned the complex as a fashionable alternative to renting 20 minutes (or so) northward. The Art Deco style inspired the name; and amenities include a putting green, a heated pool, a pet spa, and a tasting room.
Besides, there are no pet fees; Deco is offering one month free, plus no security deposit under certain conditions; and parking can be had for $110 more a month (again, a steal by Boston standards).
Plus, Deco could be just the beginning for Quincy. There is already the epic West of Chestnut soon to open in Quincy Center. And! Per Patrick Rogan at the Patriot-Ledger: "Large apartment buildings holding hundreds of units each are planned for Marina Bay, Crown Colony Drive, Quarry Street, Quincy Point, Quarry Hills, and Quincy Center. New mid-sized apartment and condo projects are being built in Wollaston, North Quincy and on the outskirts of Quincy Center."
As of Feb. 25, four of Deco's 180 apartments had been leased. Stay tuned.
