BROOKLINE, MA–City Realty Group announced its acquisition of a 132,000-square-foot, Class A office building located at 1515 Hancock Street. in Quincy, Massachusetts, for $18 million.
Anchored by long term tenants such as Intellycare, Social Security Administration, and South Coast Career Development Administration, the building has been a fixture of Quincy’s bustling commercial district for decades.
This 4-story atrium building features street frontage on 3 sides; providing views, ample natural light throughout and outdoor patio space to select offices. The building is undergoing a rebranding and revitalization of the lobby area to provide more common areas and seating for tenants.

And located across from the newly completed Generals Bridge, the building is poised to enjoy the benefits of Quincy Center’s upcoming development, with hundreds of thousands of square feet of life science, residential, hotel and retail being built just steps away.
