Marina Bay is the former site of the Victory Destroyer Plant and Naval Air Station Squantum, a naval airfield that was closed in 1954. The surplus base was sold at auction in 1956 by the U.S. Government's General Services Administration to Boston Edison. The land was then used to develop the Marina Bay project using the main hangar of the old naval air base as the main marina building. Boston Harbor Marina Inc. became interested in development of the land as a mixed-used complex in the 1980s and a group driven by Quincy developers William and Peter O'Connell was able to gain approval from the city of Quincy for the project in 1985.
