Quincy moving fast to replace Marina Bay nightclub with apartments

It’s pretty obvious the city of Quincy is no big fan of the Ocean Club at Marina Bay.

So that may partially explain the fast-track schedule for building a new 352-unit luxury apartment complex by developers Hines, of Houston, and Metlife Inc., of New York.

The developers only bought the prime ocean-front property 10 days ago, after the property got necessary zoning approvals from the city earlier this spring. Construction is scheduled to start next spring, which has to be an all-time zoning-to-groundbreaking record for a town or city in Massachusetts.

The new apartments spell the end to the Ocean Club at Marina Bay, hugely popular with young nightclub goers but, well, not so popular with nearby non-nightclub-goer residents.
