Boylston-Area Business Owners Eager to Reopen

Keith Shirley, owner of Meridian Realty Group on Gloucester Street said he has had "logistical issues" since the area was closed down Monday, April 15.

The area surrounding the site of the Boston Marathon bombings is not quite back to normal, but it’s starting to get close.

City officials and inspectors have been leading business owners through their businesses within the still-closed-off section of Boylston Street Tuesday.

The FBI handed the crime scene off to the city of Boston Monday, but Boylston Street between Hereford and Berekley streets is still closed to the public.

Keith Shirley, owner of Meridian Realty Group at 46 Gloucester St. between Newbury and Boylston streets, said the lack of access to his business for the past eight days has made things difficult. 

“We’ve had logistical issues,” he said from behind the blocked off gate on Gloucester Street. “We haven’t been able to write checks or process paperwork.”

He said he registered with the city’s database and has been told he could things could be back to normal in the area by Wednesday night. read more

Back Bay Businesses to Reopen, Others in the Dark

FBI investigators make another sweep of Boylston Street on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, as they search for evidence in the bombing of the Boston Marathon.

While most of the Back Bay remains a crime scene following the bombing at the Boston Marathon, some businesses have been given the green light to reopen this week, according to the Boston Business Journal.

While officials have told some businesses on Boylston Street when they can reopen, others still have no idea when they can reopen their doors.

The Lenox Hotel, at the corner of Exeter Street and Boylston Street has been cleared to open at 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

Aquent at 711 Boylston Street have been told that they can reenter their office at some point in the next 48 hours, the BBJ reported.

When asked, Tarek Hassan president of The Tannery said that “we have no idea,” when they will be able to reopen.

“It’s not that we’re being vague,” John Guilfoil, a spokesman for Mayor Thomas Menino told the BBJ. “It’s that the FBI is in charge of the crime scene.

Business owners and inspectors will be allowed back inside the blast zone on a “staggered scheduled for limited access.” read more

Hubway System to Reopen in April

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
