The MBTA board on December 4 voted to approve a plan to plunk as many as 602 apartments atop and around Quincy Center Station in Quincy as part of one of the biggest transit-related developments in the region and along the Red Line.
The plan from Atlantic Development and Bozzuto Development Co. also involves office and retail space as well as upgrades to the station, including a new bus terminal and the restoration of more than 600 parking spaces.
The project would go up in three phases. The first—the upgrades, the new bus terminal, and the first 300 apartments—would be finished by 2023, and the rest by 2031.
The project still needs approval from Quincy officials, and that may not be easy. As the Globe’s Adam Vaccaro notes, some residents aren’t pleased with its scope nor the prospect of new bus routes.
