A mixed-use development with 579 apartments could be coming to North Quincy T Station. Over 600,000 square feet of residential space along with retail and parking could make up this mixed-use space.
North Quincy is not the only T stop to experience surrounding construction. JFK/UMass and Quincy Adams also have construction rising around them, starting a small, but growing, trend of constructing mixed-use spaces around transit stations.
The board that oversees the transit authority approved the project. However, still facing a separate set of approvals in Quincy, the mixed-use development is but a proposal. The lot where the mixed-use space would go is owned by the MBTA. If the project is approved, it would bring with it a 99-year lease and $230 million in revenue for the MBTA.
