QUINCY – The developers looking to put around 610 high-end apartments and 50,000 square feet of retail space on the site of the North Quincy MBTA station will publicly present the project to city officials for the first time Wednesday night.

Representatives from North Quincy Partners, a limited-liability corporation formed to oversee this project by Atlantic Development of Hingham and Bozzuto Group of Washington, D.C., will present at the city’s planning board meeting on Wednesday night.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in the old city hall building.

D.J. MacKinnon, the president of Atlantic Development, said that they will start from the bottom up, presenting about utilities and the like first. Future meetings – the planning board meets once a month – will get to the more visible elements of the project.

“We look forward to working with the city,” he said.

The state-owned seven-acre North Quincy parking lot would have the hundreds of apartments, thousands of square feet of retail space and roughly 1,600 parking spaces. The T has proposed signing a 99-year lease with North Quincy Partners that would generate about $230 million in rent for the cash-strapped state agency.
