Redevelopment is happening even faster than city officials and residents have hoped for in the South End as Harrison and Albany National Development has officially made the announcement that it will at demolish the old Boston Herald headquarters. In its place will be four new buildings with 475 one-to three-bedroom apartments plus 85,000 square feet of retail space which will include small shops, restaurants and a grocery store. All this is being designed by the architectural firm of Elkus Manfredi.
This is only the beginning of what is promised to be a revival of the entire area between Chinatown and South end proper. This entire area will eventually be comprised of more than 1,000 new units of housing and dozens of new storefronts and be called “Ink Block”
