Quincy, MA – (July 07, 2016) – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan), a Bridgewater-based full-service construction management firm, recently participated in the topping-off ceremony for Meriel Marina Bay, a 352-unit luxury oceanfront apartment community in Quincy’s Marina Bay neighborhood. Initial occupancy is expected in Spring 2017 and the overall construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
Callahan was selected as the project’s construction management firm, following recent successful multifamily projects with Hines, including Fuse Cambridge and Currents on the Charles. Working in collaboration with the architectural team of Elkus Manfredi and Cube 3 Studio, the pair of apartment buildings began construction in July of 2015. During the ceremony, the last piece of steel was raised and placed by Iron Workers Local 7, signifying the completion of the structural steel portion on the second of the two buildings. A major milestone, the finalization of the structural steel will allow for construction of the 163 wood framed apartment units in the South Building above the parking garage to commence.
Conveniently located seven miles south of Boston and accessible to major highways as well as the Red Line via shuttle bus, Meriel Marina Bay marries views of the marina and downtown Boston skyline. Meriel Marina Bay will extend the existing boardwalk by providing approximately 20,000 square feet of retail space including several new restaurants and shops that will complement the existing retail in Marina Bay, as well as offer an improved pedestrian connection to Squantum Point Park. Only minutes from the Quincy River Walk, the property will evoke a peaceful escape from the buzz of the City of Boston without the hassle of a long commute.
“The timely completion of the structural steel portion of the second and final building is a tribute to the team’s work ethic and passion for providing consistent quality service and an understanding of client goals,” says Patrick Callahan, President at Callahan Construction. “We appreciate the opportunity to be involved in the growth of Quincy and look forward to bringing another Hines property to life with Meriel Marina Bay.”
Meriel Marina Bay resident amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a cardio studio, a yoga/group studio, as well as three expansive elevated courtyards – one of which has a resort- style pool.
