Quincy Business Council
The Quincy Business Council is playing an important role in connecting Quincy's business community with the much-anticipated revitalization of the downtown Quincy business district lead by master developer Street-Works, LLC. The massive $1.6 billion dollar project will include major infrastructure upgrades, reconfigured roadways, retail, office, residential space including the construction of 20 story office/residential condominiums.
The vision of a renewed Quincy Center has only become possible because of the construction of a project long championed by the Quincy Business Council - the Quincy Center Concourse. The Concourse now directly connects the Bergin parkway at Granite Street to Route 3A near Stop & Shop and Roxy’s.
Aside from supporting commercial development and infrastructure projects that enhance Quincy’s ability to attract business to the area, the business council will continue to speak up on behalf of business at City Hall whether opposing the unfair tax classification system now being used by the City to raise revenue or speaking on behalf of the right of all qualified businesses, both non union and union shops, to bid for taxpayer funded projects based on merit and fair competition.
