Meriel Marina Bay, Quincy
We pride ourselves on delivering projects that strengthen the communities in which they’re located. Meriel Marina Bay is an example of such a project, transforming the formerly noise-laden nightclub destination into an exclusive waterfront community overlooking Dorchester Bay. The two-building apartment complex includes residential units, retail space, restaurants, and a parking garage. In support of the development, HSH prepared a Traffic Impact and Access Study (TIAS) to analyze and present traffic impacts of the proposed development, and to develop transportation improvements and management measures to mitigate projects impacts. HSH was lead engineer on the project, providing roadway, utilities, and stormwater management design.
Additionally, HSH evaluated the existing shuttle system serving area activity nodes, including Boston Scientific, a nursing home, points along Marina Drive, and the North Quincy Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Station. HSH developed a new service plan that would expand the number of stops, increase shuttle frequency, and result in a reduction of personal vehicle trips.
