Quincy, MA According to Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan), construction remains on schedule at The Abby, a transit-oriented development at the MBTA’s North Quincy Red Line stop. The project is approaching construction milestones including the completion of exterior finishes and façade work. The project is designed by ICON Architecture and developed in partnership by Bozzuto and Atlantic.
The new, mixed-use development will include three apartment buildings with 610 units, 45,000 s/f of retail space anchored by a Target store, a 1,314-space parking garage, including 852 parking spots for MBTA commuters. Phase one of construction remains on-time, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Callahan has continued to work diligently on Building A, with the team finalizing the property’s exterior, and installing and painting windows and cabinets in the first block of units. The Abby’s garage also nears completion, with continued work on elevator installations. Foundations at the post-tension section of the amenity area of Building B are also underway.
“Callahan is proud of our safety team, which has overseen numerous job site changes, and has still maintained project schedules at the North Quincy site,” said Patrick Callahan, president of Callahan. “We have enjoyed a very successful partnership with Bozzuto and ICON Architecture, working in close collaboration during a difficult construction climate, and look forward to completing this transit-oriented community.”
The Abby aims to redevelop North Quincy Station by transforming a former bus depot and parking lot into a vibrant community that pays homage to the area’s rich history. Residents at The Abby at North Quincy Station will have access to amenities including two outdoor courtyards, pool deck, club lounge, entertainment kitchen, dog spa, bike fix-it shop, and a fitness center with active group fitness and studio areas.
“We appreciate Callahan’s attention to safety during this challenging time. Callahan has been able to maintain a safe work environment while keeping the job operational allowing us to protect our workers and deliver the new project as planned,” said Mike Henehan, president of Bozzuto.
The residential portion of the project will be delivered over two phases, with the first units available for occupancy in May of 2021 and the second phase in January 2022. The entire North Quincy Station Redevelopment project is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2022.
