After years of plans, Quincy Center remodeling begins

Heavy equipment will start tearing up parts of Quincy Center next month, launching a $1.6 billion revitalization of the city’s downtown that has been in the works for years.

The first phase of the project, to be called Merchants Row, will include a complex of new and restored buildings that will contain 306 loft-style apartments, 24,000 square feet of office space, and several shops and restaurants along Hancock and Cottage streets.
