Quincy $1.2B Mega Project
Quincy signd $1.2b deal to rebuild Quincy Center
In January, Quincy Mayor Tom Koch started ?11 with a bang when he signed a land disposition agreement for the $1.2B makeoverof the city center with the NY-based Street-Works' partners Ken Narva and Richard Heapes. The plan calls for 1M SF of new offices, 700 housing units, two hotels, a cinema/entertainment complex, and 575k SF of new retail/restaurants. The massive overhaul—projected to create 4,100 construction jobs and 5,700 permanent jobs—also requires the private developer to build$227M of public infrastructure. Once the buildings are occupied and producing revenue, the city will purchase the infrastructure, including parking garages, from Street-Works, which hopes for a '13 construction start.
