820,000 SqFt Mixed-Used Development.
Just 20 minutes by train to the Financial District in downtown Boston, the North Quincy T Station was surrounded by parking lots and had long been ripe for redevelopment. Championed by both the Quincy Mayor and Massachusetts Governor, this high-profile development needed to incorporate an existing (Active!) train line, with three buildings incorporating large retail tenants, significant building amenities such as a library, tenant kitchen, solariam, and co-working spaces, as well as extentive outdoor courtyards and a pool.
The three-building development required a phased approach, coordinated with Bozzuto Development and Icon Architects. Each building is designed with a steel podium over the amenities and retail spaces and light-framed wood residential floors. Careful incorporation of existing underground infrastructure and access to the trains throughout construction added a level of complexity that easily fits into Veitas Engineer's thoughtful approach to projects.
The Abby was a major milestone for the City of Quincy in showing that major redevelopment of the T-Stations could be economically viable and be a catalyst for further development in a still affordable commutable city next to Boston. Veitas Engineer's relentless attention to costs and detailing was one of the keys to unlocking this site's potential.
