Former Quincy Hospital site redevelopment into huge housing project approved.
As was only to be expected in spite of considerable and sound arguments against approving the plan as presented, the Quincy Mayor Thomas P. Koch-appointee rich Quincy Planning Board approved the plan of yet another connected real estate speculator to redevelop the former Quincy Medical Center property into one of largest multiple unit residential projects in the city’s history.
About the only thing unexpected was just how transparent was this particular as well as latest bag job, especially how quickly the application was decided all but without any of the expected due deliberation following warranted critical public comment of the application.
While the local prolific gadfly has already posted his usual comprehensive, erudite and insightful recap of events to the South Shore broadsheet’s coverage, Quincy Quarry would like to add that one should expect that aggrieved abuttors will be filing an appeal against the Planning Board’s approval.
That and how it would appear that the game plan looks to be a good one to see a de facto instant replay overturning of the approval and then a replay ordered.
As always, Quincy Quarry readers count on it to provide updates if and as they hit the fan.
