    Meriel Marina Bay has doubled the size of the public boardwalk at Marina Bay.

    Developers of a Quincy apartment complex affected by fire earlier this year celebrated its opening of a bigger public boardwalk at Marina Bay recently.

    Hines, the real estate developer behind the complex, has expanded the boardwalk and brought two five-story buildings containing 352 luxury units, as well as a parking garage and 20,000 square feet of retail space, to Marina Bay, the multi-use waterfront development adjacent to Squantum Point Park.

    The boardwalk has nearly doubled in size with the development of Meriel Marina Bay, the latest in a series of large apartment complexes to open in Quincy.


    The complex caught fire on June 4, but a project official said that the small portion of the property affected by the fire was repaired immediately and that the damage was minimal.

    Mayor Thomas Koch, officials from Callahan Construction Managers, and others were on hand Aug. 12 to cut the ribbon on the new boardwalk.
