A rendering of an aerial view from the south.

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.

Street Cleaning Begins Bostonwide on April 1st

Check your signs in March.

Street sweeping in Boston is back Bostonwide starting as of April 1st.

This year, many Boston neighborhoods will see a different daily schedule to better align with trash and recycling days, a pilot program that started in the South End last year. Street sweeping in the South End officially began on March 1st, although winter weather kept the program from starting until the end of the month. 

“Keeping Boston’s neighborhoods clean is a top priority of mine, as well as our residents,” Mayor Menino said. “These schedule changes will allow us to clean streets in a way that improves our operations and maximizes the benefits of sweeping. I look forward to seeing our neighborhoods shine once again this spring.”

The neighborhoods most affected by the new street sweeping schedule will be Jamaica Plain and most of Dorchester and Mission Hill.  The city says aligning street sweeping with trash days will will provide cleaner streets and a reduction in rodent food sources. There are 6,500 new signs posted in those neighborhoods.  read more

Hubway Bike Share bikes near Copley Square in Boston. The system will be back online in April.

There’s still snow on the ground and it still feels like the dead of winter, but a staple of summer in Boston will be back online before you know it.

Bicycles will be available throughout the Hubway bike sharing system the first or second week of April, according to Nicole Freedman, director of bicycle programs for the city of Boston.

In the South End, three stations from previous years will be back, including the Tremont Street station in front of the South End Library, one at Tremont and Berkeley Streets, and Columbus Avenue at Mass. Ave. 

Three new stations are planned for the South End, including Washington Street at Rutland Street, Boston Medical Center and Washington Street at Waltham Street. 

Freedman also said that Hubway officials still have their sights set on setting up a network of stations in Jamaica Plain.

“We’re very optimistic,” she said of a JP expansion. She said the JP stations would be opened in late summer. read more
