QUINCY – The developers proposing 60 luxury apartments on Bridge Street in Quincy said are keeping their options open after Wednesday’s planning board meeting ended in uncertainty, the developers’ lawyer said on Thursday.

After an hour-long public hearing during which residents voiced worries largely stemming from the number of apartments proposed by Boston Property Development, a call for a vote one way or another got no response.

Board chairman Richard Meade said this was the first time he’d seen that happen, and that the issue again will be before the board at the body’s next meeting on Feb. 8. The developers plan to be there.

“It was strange,” said Ed Fleming, the Quincy-based attorney representing Boston Property Development.

He said that the developers still have to go before the city’s historical commission, which they will do before that meeting. Fleming said that that body’s decision will be enough of a push to get movement from the planning board.

Quincy’s planning department already has recommended that the planning board approve it. The developers will work with that department and the planning board to try to allay any concerns.

“We’ll do what we can to address those,” he said.
