A spokesman for Quincy’s mayor said talks to restart the stalled $1.6 billion renovation of Quincy Center would begin Monday, after a contract with the project’s developer officially expired Friday. Spokesman Christopher Walker said Mayor Thomas Koch’s previous notice that the developer, Street-Works Development LLC, was in default of its contract, required a 30-day waiting period, which has now ended.

Walker did not say what options for getting work underway were available to the mayor.

Street-Works could not be reached for comment.
