    OVERVIEW

    Granite Lofts

    Granite Lofts provides a unique open floor plan style of living in a small city setting conveniently located near the North Quincy Red Line "T" station, stores, restaurants, post office, banks, library and grocery store. Situated on a almost 2 acre site and encompassing an entire city block, Granite Lofts condominiums are comprised of two separate buildings on the east and west ends of the site separated by a landscaped courtyard. Off street parking is included and garage parking is available at an additional amount. Starting at $299,000... Styles available: 1 Bedroom, 2 Bedroom Stainless steel kitchen appliances, granite counters, bamboo or polish concrete flooring, in unit laundry hookups, central air, ceiling fans, large windows, and elevator.  Most units have 2 full baths A major supermarket, pharmacy, video store, banks, a classic diner and U.S. Post Office are all within sight of the development. In addition, the North Quincy Red-Line MBTA station, at the end of Holmes Street, is only a 3 minute walk. Additional stores and services such as restaurants, dry cleaners, a hardware store and coffee shops can be found within a short walk. Loft residences have long been known for their open floor plans and flexible spaces. However, many loft developments don’t deliver “completeness” of the homes when it comes to finishes – commonly offering only a one-room, multi-functioning living space, a single lavatory, little closet space and the most basic kitchen and bathroom finishes. Buyers of those type ‘lofts’ are often faced with the arduous and expensive task of upgrading the basic finishes and attempting to create some type of more private sleeping and living areas within one open space. From the early planning stages, the vision has been to bridge the gap between ‘open loft’ living and more complete, move-in ready residences. Granite Lofts delivers the best of both worlds. Each residence provides open, voluminous living space highlighted by dramatically high ceilings with exposed wood beams and wood decking. The expansive anodized, aluminum framed windows create stunning walls of glass. European-style kitchens are finished with both wood and metal-framed, frosted glass cabinet doors, granite counter tops, a free-standing island with overhang for seating, stainless appliances and low-voltage pendant lighting. Many of the bedrooms offer walk-in closets and bathrooms en-suite. The bathrooms feature a European-style vanity cabinet and sink on stainless steel legs, clean, white subway-style tile on shower/tub walls, low-voltage lighting and natural wood decking for a truly unique ceiling treatment. The sleek concrete floor system is stained and sealed in a warm ‘cola’ color, providing a smooth, continuous surface throughout. On-site parking for each residence offers yet another convenience, giving residents the ability to drive to their destination and arrive home to guaranteed parking.

    Quincy History
    Quincy, which is known as the "City of Presidents," is part of Norfolk County and contains 88,025 residents and a population density of 5,178 people per square mile (information from the 2002 U.S. Census). The City is the most populous of communities on
    what is commonly referred to in Massachusetts as the "South Shore," which extends along the coast down to Cape Cod. However, it is more frequently viewed as a medium-sized city within the Boston metropolitan region. Quincy has approximately 27 miles of coastline that is enveloped by two natural peninsulas that border Quincy Bay. The land area of the City is approximately 17 square miles.
    In 1789, Quincy's most famous citizens became nationally prominent, with the election of native son John Adams as vice president of the newly formed Union. Eight years later he became president of the United States. His son, John Quincy Adams, eventually
    followed in his footsteps and attained the presidency, and following his tenure he became regarded by many as the finest diplomat in the Foreign Service Corps. The Adams were but one of many prominent and influential families residing in Quincy during the colonial years and thereafter. During its early history Quincy was an agricultural community, similar to many of its neighboring towns. The early advent of industry in the area gave rise to some of the first grist mills and iron furnaces in the country. Despite its proximity to the ocean, early on Quincy's commerce was largely geared toward the exploitation of terrestrial resources.
    Granite quarrying, followed by shipbuilding, became the two most prominent industries within the Town. The construction of Kings Chapel and Bunker Hill Monument (in Boston) using Quincy granite was one of the primary reasons the demand for the area's
    beautiful granite began to exceed supply. The demand throughout the region for the cumbersome quarried granite led to the development of the first commercial common carrier rail-line in the country, which was operated by local industrialist Gridley
    Bryant and the Granite Railway Company. Their first contract was with the Bunker Hill Monument Association in 1827, and horses were initially used to haul the rail cars. Soon, however, the operation grew much more efficient. The early utilization of innovative
    transportation technologies, such as the rail track switch, the rail car turntable, and the swivel trucked rail car, led to Quincy's eventual development as a major industrial shipbuilding center engaged in global trade.
     
    Quincy Today
    Today Quincy continues to attract professionals from in and around Metro Boston

    industries, as well as a superior quality of life in close proximity to Boston. Recent
    development of Marina Bay is home to 685 boat slips and a fully equipped marina
    with complete showers and laundry. Other Marina Bay highlights include several
    fine restaurants with outdoor seating in addition to gift shops and boutiques. Daily
    cruises to Provincetown depart from the marina as well as private cruises around Boston Harbor. Quincy also continues to attract urban professionals
    and corporate offices from Boston, who continue to relish the City's convenient
    location, excellent transportation facilities and numerous amenities.
    Quincy expects to account for a significant proportion of the South Shore's future
    commercial, residential, and retail growth.
