05 Jul Under Construction: The Watson
Located at 116 East Howard Street in the historic shipyard area of Quincy Point, The Watson brings a mix of affordable, middle-income, and market-rate multifamily housing to a neighborhood just eight miles south of Boston. Developed by WinnCompanies and NeighborWorks Southern MA, the project seeks to stimulate the local community and take aim at the need for “workforce housing”, as identified in a speech delivered by Governor Baker at the project site last year. The Watson includes 140 units, consisting of a mix of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom leasable apartments. Residents will have access to featured amenities such as fitness center, lounge, club room, outdoor patio and courtyard, and structured garage parking. Drawing inspiration from its surroundings, the project combines Quincy’s historic seafaring environment with contemporary modern designs in both the interior and exterior finishes. Construction of The Watson is well underway with a projected completion of September 2018.
