QUINCY – Six dozen more high-end apartments are coming to North Quincy right near the Neponset Bridge.

A six-story building will hold 72 apartments and 106 parking spots will replace the Industrial Heat Treating plant at 31-39 Newbury St., said Arthur Choo, the project’s Quincy-based architect.

Twelve more parking spots are available outside the building, Choo said on Thursday.

The project received the unanimous blessing of Quincy’s planning board Wednesday night. No one from the audience spoke either for or against the project.

This development originally was proposed in October as 84 apartments with one floor of parking in the basement. But after neighbors worried about the number of apartments and the possibility of flooding discouraged the existence of the basement parking, the
developers have agreed to undertake some street improvements such as widening the narrow street and extending a sidewalk up the the property from Hancock Street a block away.

This project along with another developer’s previously approved building of a 16-unit housing complex at 60 Newbury St. will result in the full construction of Newbury Street, which currently is partly a dirt road.
