Marina Bay

Marina Bay is a peninsula in North Quincy, Massachusetts right on the Boston line. It includes five condominium associations including detached single-family, townhouse mid-rise and high-rise apartment units, a rental apartment building, an assisted living complex and nursing home, office complexes, nine restaurants, a 685-slip marina and a seaside Boardwalk with broad views of the Boston Skyline and the Boston Harbor Islands. There are currently 731 Condominiums and 125 Apartments with 352 Apartments currently under construction.

Marina Bay is just 6 miles South of Boston with easy access to 93, the Mass Pike and Route 3. There is a complimentary shuttle that runs continuously every 15-20 minutes from 5am-11pm to North Quincy Station for Redline Subway and Bus services. Beginning August 1, Ferry service has returned to Marina Bay running to Rowe's Wharf in 20 minutes as well as to Winthrop and Spectacle Island.

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.

Harbourside Condominums

Harbourside Condominiums was the first condominium project completed in Marina Bay in 1984/1985. The 2-story and 3-story townhouses were built to resemble a Nantucket-style village creating a neighborhood of 6 cul-de-sacs with a Community Pool and a private path leading directly to the Marina. Many of these 101 town homes sit on the water or offer water views, some have unique architectural features such as cathedral ceilings and skylights and all feature 2-1/2 baths, fireplaces and 1- or 2-car garages. There is an on-site management office and the community is pet-friendly allowing 1 cat or 1 dog 30lbs or under per unit.
