Economic Development

Inside, you’ll find a snapshot information on a broad range of private development either completed, underway or scheduled within the next few years. For those of us in government, we have a great responsibility to create the foundation for this kind of economic expansion. Together as a community we have made great strides over the last several years in building that foundation.

From new schools, to roads and bridges, to new parks and protecting our historic assets, the City of Quincy is creating opportunity, jobs, and fostering the remarkable growth we are seeing today. All this while protecting and improving the neighborhoods that will continue to make Quincy one of the most stable and attractive cities in all of the Commonwealth in the years to come.

Quincy Center for Innovation

Quincy Center Innovation

The Quincy Center for Innovation (QCI) is a unique co-operative work environment located just 7 miles south of Boston. It is the ideal environment for co-working and collaboration, supporting start-ups and early phase companies. It was formed in 2013 as a strategic partnership between the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, Quincy 2000 Collaborative, Eastern Nazarene College and the City of Quincy.

At the QCI, you will find that it’s about more than just workspace – it’s an all-emcompassing program that focuses on helping entrepreneurs and start-ups fulfill their dreams. That’s why we refer to our residents as “Program Entrants” or PE’s. As a PE you will have access to mentors and individuals who are there to help you plan and grow your business. You will work alongside fellow entrepreneurs who share the same passion and enthusiasm as you. It is this collaborative environment that makes the QCI the perfect place for start-ups to begin on the South Shore of Boston.

The 12,500 square foot facility is located at 180 Old Colony Avenue in Quincy, Massachusetts, just minutes from the Wollaston Red Line MBTA station. There is ample on-street parking as well as reserved parking.

The cities of Boston, Cambridge, Quincy, Somerville and Braintree have launched the Life Sciences Corridor, a regional economic development initiative focused on the life sciences sector.

These five cities have a strong presence in the life sciences industry, benefiting from skilled labor force availability, leading universities in advancing academic science fields, innovative research and development districts, proximity to major research hospitals, and strategic presence of venture capital resources.

The Life Sciences Corridor is connected by the Massachusetts Bay Authority Transit Authority (MBTA) Red Line. This subway line serves as a link with over 15 stops between the five cities.

The cities have tremendous strengths to attract businesses from around the world and have decided to coordinate efforts, resources and activities around life sciences development.
