Former Herald Building Demolition, Ink Block Construction to Start

Rep. Aaron Michlewitz grabs a brick from a pile of bricks from the former Boston Herald building.

In a ceremony filled with memories from Boston Herald employees and hope for the future development of the neighborhood, Mayor Menino, state reps and city officials gathered in the South End on Thursday to say goodbye to the old building and welcome the new Ink Block development. 

Menino said he was happy to see a bridge built between the South End, Chinatown and South Boston with the new development, and the first full-sized grocery store come to the South End.

“The South End deserves this type of development,” he said. “As part of the ongoing transformation of the South End, this project will grow the neighborhood’s vitality with its diverse housing mix, new pedestrian activity and retail energy.”

The new development, situated at the corner of Harrison Ave and Traveler Street, will feature 475 units of housing in five buildings and 85,000 square feet of  retail space, including a  50,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market, which will be the chain’s largest location in Boston. read more
