The Bozzuto Development Co. on Monday held a groundbreaking ceremony for The Abby, a 610-unit apartment complex with 45,000 square feet of retail — including a Target retail store — on a 7-acre parking lot adjacent to the MBTA Red Line North Quincy station.


Greenbelt, Maryland-based Bozzuto Development manages apartments and retail across the U.S., including 30 Dalton in Boston’s Back Bay, the Flats on D in South Boston and One Greenway in Chinatown. The Abby — a complex named for former First Lady Abigail Adams — is Bozzuto’s first development in North Quincy.


“We are excited to have reached this key milestone on The Abby and to be providing the North Quincy community with high-quality residential and retail opportunities that make great use of the adjacent Red Line station,” said Toby Bozzuto, president and CEO of The Bozzuto Group, in a statement.


The phased project is scheduled to deliver one 218-unit apartment building by spring 2021, another 137-unit apartment building by summer 2021 and a third 255-unit apartment building by spring 2022. 


The project will also feature 1,519 parking spaces, including some 852 that are reserved for MBTA commuters. Callahan Construction Managers is building the project, which ICON Architecture designed. 


Buidling amenities will include a mail room, fitness center with group fitness and studio areas, a solarium, a club lounge, an entertainment kitchen, billiards, a dog spa, a bike fix-it shop, an outdoor pool with grills, an outdoor dog run and two landscaped courtyards, according to a press release. 


Atlantic Development and Northwestern Mutual are partnering with Bozzuto to finance the project. The MBTA first put out its bid for the 7-acre parking lot in July 2015.
