Marina Bay is a luxury waterfront community in the Squantum neighborhood of Quincy. The 400-acre former naval base is now a mixed-use complex home to approximately 2,000 residents. The complex spans five housing developments including detached, townhouse, and low-rise apartment units, numerous restaurants and a 765 boat-slip marina and boardwalk. After the airstrips closed, the property was originally slated as a nuclear power station. After these plans were scrapped for safety reasons, construction began in the early 1980s. Today the neighborhood is recognized as a prime example of “New Urbanism” in successfully mixing commercial and residential living and has been home to a number of local Boston celebrities and sports stars, including Tom Brady, Congressman William Delahunt, Red Sox broadcaster Sean McDonough, and news anchor Chet Curtis.
Marina Bay is situated on the northwestern part of Squantum Peninsula at the mouth of the Neponset River where it meets Dorchester Bay in Boston Harbor.
