New Quincy Center is among the largest urban revitalization efforts anywhere in Massachusetts, encompassing a total of more than 50 acres of mixed-use development in the heart of one of America's most historic cities.
The dramatic mix of housing, commercial space and a vibrant retail and restaurant scene is already taking shape with new residences and restaurants opening throughout the past year. A new world-class park, the Hancock-Adams Green now under construction between the historic First Parish Church and Old City Hall is set to provide the civic foundation. Work is expected to continue in 2017.
This page aims to keep residents up-to-date on developments and provide information on everything that Quincy Center has to offer. You'll find all the public documents before City regulatory boards, renderings of projects past and future, a map of current available parking downtown, and links to some of the new dining options in downtown and beyond.
Beginning this week, Cottage Avenue will be restricted to traffic between Chestnut Street and Cottage Street (the street side of the Four’s Restaurant) while construction of the new parking garage in that area is underway.
The City of Quincy Cemetery Dept. is implementing a second phase of improvements at Mount Wollaston Cemetery this summer. Repaving of all of the cemetery roadways is underway with installation of new granite curbing on the Sea St. and Greenleaf St. entrance roads.
The City next week will implement the first phase of an interim parking plan necessary to make way for the construction of a new 700-space public parking garage, a new civic space and public park, and a 15-story mixed-use tower in the Hancock Parking Lot.
