Meriel Marina Bay
Ribbon cut on newly completed Meriel Marina Bay luxury apartments, and Marina Bay boardwalk expansion, on Quincy waterfront
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Saturday, August 12th for the newly completed Meriel Marina Bay luxury apartments on the Quincy waterfront, and the associated expansion of the Marina Bay boardwalk. The boardwalk’s size has been nearly doubled as part of Meriel Marina Bay’s development, creating new publicly-accessibly waterfront space and retail. Meriel Marina Bay features two five-story buildings featuring 352 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences and 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, with resident amenities including a fitness center, three elevated courtyards, a swimming pool and on-site garage parking. Breathtaking views of Boston Harbor and the Boston skyline are visible throughout Meriel Marina Bay. Over 25% of apartments at Meriel Marina Bay are leased following the launch of leasing last Spring; apartments are now available for lease.
Meriel Marina Bay is the latest addition to Quincy’s thriving Marina Bay neighborhood, located a short drive, transit trip or boat ride to Downtown Boston. “The expansion of the Marina Bay boardwalk is a truly meaningful milestone in our work to complete the Meriel Marina Bay community and further enhance the many wonderful aspects of this neighborhood,” said Hines Managing Director Michael Francis in a prepared statement. “The new boardwalk and new retail spaces will provide additional opportunities to complement the already thriving mix of retail offerings along the waterfront and provide both locals and visitors with added space to enjoy the unique benefits of this waterfront neighborhood.”
Meriel Marina Bay complements Quincy’s recent resurgence, with hundreds of thousands of square feet of new housing and commercial space currently under development and recently completed. “Our city has experienced an ongoing positive evolution across all neighborhoods over the last number of years with the steady addition of new businesses and residents proud to call Quincy home,” said Quincy Mayor Thomas P. Koch in a prepared statement. “Marina Bay has particularly continued to thrive as a destination where residents and visitors alike come to live, work and play, and I’m thrilled to see the continued growth of this community with the expansion of the boardwalk through the construction of Meriel Marina Bay.”
