The Ink Block is a mixed-use development at the former location of the Boston Herald headquarters. Ink Block Boston features 315 apartments for rent along with 160 condos available for purchase. A unique aspect of the development is the fact that it's divided into three distinct experiences. Ink 1 boasts a chic, modern design with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the Boston skyline. Ink 2 has an edgy, industrial design with loft-like space and open floor plans. Ink 3 offers a more elegant and traditional style with a warm color palette, high-end materials, and a range of modern amenities.
Floor plans vary by Ink building and floor, although the development offers many unit sizes, including studio apartments and 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom condominiums. The Ink Block was designed with green living in mind. Regionally sourced renewable finishes and materials were used in the design of this smoke-free development, which was built to LEED Gold standards. The Ink Block boasts an on-site Zipcar vehicle sharing center as well as on-site bike parking, an electric vehicle charging station, and a rainwater recharge station. The development supports recycling with a resident program, and it has a Walkable score of 92, which is among the highest in the area.
