Construction at the Ink Block apartment complex site on Harrison Avenue is slated to start in April, but not before a special ground-breaking ceremony is held on April 11. 

Called the “Ink Block Party,” the event will feature Mayor Menino, Boston Redevelopment Authority Director Peter Meade, Ted Tye, managing partner with National Development, the project’s developer, and Joe Fitzgerald, a columnist from the Boston Herald. 

Menino will be removing a symbolic brick from the old Boston Herald building, and Fitzgerald will share memories from the paper’s 54-year history in the building. The Herald re-located to the Seaport District in 2011. 

The finished $ 200 million development will include 471 apartments, a Whole Foods supermarket, and other shops and restaurants on the 6-acre site.
