PHOTOS: Ink Block Demolition Continues on Harrison Ave

The "Ink Block Boston" logo hangs around the site of the demolished former Boston Herald building. Construction for the new Whole Foods supermarket and 475 apartments began after a groundbreaking ceremony on April 11, 2013.

The former Boston Herald building is officially no more.

Demolition has been underway for the last several weeks at the Harrison Ave site of the future Ink Block Developement, a $ 200 million mixed-use project that will feature hundreds of apartments and a Whole Foods supermarket.

At the demolition site this week, construction crews used a crane and a wrecking ball to tear down the small portion remained standing of the Herald building.

Construction began on the six-acre site in 2013 with a ceremonial ground-breaking. The project is scheduled to be fully completed in 2016. The Whole Foods supermarket is expected to open in late 2014

Dic Donohue Continues Recovery After Firefight with Bombing Suspects

Richard "Dic" Donohue.

The MBTA officer seriously hurt in a gunfight with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects continues to recover from life-threatening injuries.

Richard “Dic” Donohue, 33, was hit in the leg April 19 in Watertown, Mass., authorities said.

Donohue is a police officer with the Massachusetts Bay Tranportation Authority. His wife, Kim, is from Exeter and graduated from Exeter High School in 2000.

“Right now Dic is making amazing strides,” Kim wrote in a post on a Facebook page that Donohue’s family is using to give updates on his recovery.

Authorities said Donohue lost a massive amount of blood. At one point, he went into cardiac arrest, according to Dr. Russell Nauta, a doctor at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Mass. where Donohue is being treated.

A pair of Watertown firefighters were instrumental in getting Donohue to a hospital after he was shot.

The MBTA Transit Police Benevolent Fund Inc. created a website to collect donations for Donohue’s recovery. read more

Faneuil Hall around noon on Friday, April 19, 2013.

 

 

 

Images of downtown Boston Friday morning are hard to believe, as streets and areas that should be bustling with people are shown empty and deserted—”like a ghost town,” as many have said on social media. Police were still in the middle of a hunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing by around noon.

Wait Continues for ‘Severely Late’ Commuter Rail Cars

MBTA commuter rail.

In 2008, the MBTA bought 75 new commuter rail cars from Korean-based Hyundai Rotem, in 2013, the MBTA is still waiting for the cars to be delivered.

Massachusetts Department of Transportation Secretary and CEO Richard Davey said at a statehouse oversight committee hearing Tuesday the state is still waiting on 75 double-decker coaches for the commuter rail. The MBTA bought the coaches in 2008 from Korean company Hyundai Rotem.

“They are late, severely late,” Davey said.

He added, however, that MBTA engineers are satisfied with the quality of the cars.

Philadelphia and Los Angeles are in front of Boston in terms of waiting for the cars, but transit engineers in both cities are satisfied with the cars as well, Davey said.

“At this point while we’re very concerned about the delay,” he said. “The good news is these are not going to be lemons. If we were unhappy with the quality, we would not have tolerated the type of delay we’ve been watching. These types of cars don’t grow on trees.” read more
