The redevelopment of the shuttered Quincy Medical Center off Whitwell Street near Quincy Center is due to include hundreds of residences in townhouse-style buildings.
It is also slated to have significant amounts of greenspace, and the developer will retain Glendale Park, which is part of the former hospital campus.
That is pretty much all that is known of developer FoxRock Properties’ plans for the 14.9-acre site, which hosted the medical center until it shuttered in late 2014. FoxRock bought it two years later for $12 million.
Plans should become clearer on July 24, when FoxRock presents its proposed design for the site’s redevelopment. Those plans are expected to be of the low-rise variety in keeping with “the aesthetic realm of the neighborhood,” Quincy City Councilwoman Kirsten Hughes told the Patriot Ledger’s Erin Tiernan.
The medical center redevelopment will join other major projects in the Quincy Center area—and off the Red Line, for that matter. The Quincy Center projects include a primarily residential development on and around the Red Line stop itself and the West of Chestnut apartment complex that opened in 2016.
