Former Herald Building Demolition, Ink Block Construction to Start

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. “We are thrilled to officially begin construction on what we are proud to say will become the new center of gravity for life in the South End,” said Ted Tye, managing partner of the development firm on the project, National Development. “Ink Block will transform this currently underutilized block by adding stylish neighborhood-focused, trend-setting housing, restaurants, exciting shops and entertainment options, making this the newest location for 18-hour living in Boston.” But not everyone at the ceremony was excited to see the building be torn down. Joe Fitzgerald, a 43-year veteran of the Boston Herald, reminisced about the days and long hours spent at the building, the time in 1982 when the paper was almost shut down, and the daily rumbling of the newspaper presses doing their work late into the night. “From all of us at the Boston Herald, I hope you’ll be as happy living here as we were working here,” he said.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Former Brown Aide Chosen to Head State GOP

Kristen Hughes, the former deputy finance chairman for the Sen. Scott Brown campaign, won a narrow vote Thursday night to become the new chairwoman of the Massachusetts Republican Party, according to Boston.com.  Hughes, 35, will replace outgoing chairman Robert A. Maginn, Jr. Before joining Brown’s campaign – and becoming his choice to lead the GOP through the upcoming election cycle – Hughes worked as a Quincy city councilor. As Brown’s aide, she helped raise $ 42 million. Her win Thursday was seen by some as a important to avoid Brown from looking weak in the face of another possible run for the U.S. Senate, the Globe reported.  “I am ready to head to [the GOP headquarters] tomorrow morning to get to work without delay,” Hughes said, according to Boston.com. “How we do in these special elections will have a direct impact on our ability to motivate the grassroots and raise funds for the 2014 cycle and beyond.” SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch
