Ink Block Development: Adaptive Reuse of Industrial Building into a Vibrant, Mixed Use Community

​National Development
Boston, MA

We’re making new history in one of America’s most historic cities. Ink Block, previously home to the Boston Herald print and office facility, has been reimagined as a vibrant live, work, play, and shop neighborhood with the help of VHB. National Development relied on us to lead the City of Boston Article 80 and Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act reviews, which required knowing the regulators, rules, and what questions to ask to get the results the community deserves. We helped to shape the master development plan, including the challenging adaptive reuse of industrial building foundations. This development connects Boston’s South End neighborhood to downtown Boston. The reimagined area, in particular Harrison Avenue, with its wide sidewalks and great restaurants, is appealing to an active, dynamic culture writing the next pages of our history.​
