Boston-based LBC Partners has proposed constructing a 171-room hotel in Quincy Center on a vacant retail strip that the developer already owns and a city-owned parking lot adjacent to it.
The hotel at 1500 Hancock Street would join a relative construction boom near the Quincy Center Red Line stop, one that already includes the 169-unit West of Chestnut apartment complex—which itself is part of a much larger development in the area.
As the Globe asked about 11 months ago, we’ll ask again: “Is it (finally) Quincy Center’s time to shine?”
Stay tuned. The City of Quincy is reviewing the hotel proposal, which, interestingly enough, could pivot to apartments, depending on the market and other factors. We’ll see what happens.
