Ink Underground, eight-acre cultural playground, opening at Ink Block in South End this June
National Development, developer of Ink Block in the South End, will open Ink Underground, an 8-acre urban park and cultural playground, in a currently underutilized space underneath the Southeast Expressway (I-93) adjacent to Ink Block. Ink Underground will extend east from Albany Street to Fort Point Channel under I-93 and will also feature pedestrian boardwalks and bicycle paths along Fort Point Channel, creating a new, active connection between the rapidly-developing South End and South Boston neighborhoods.
Amenities at Ink Underground will include 24-hour security, a dog park, a curated series of pop-up food and beverage experiences, public art walls, sculpture exhibitions and a diverse program of special events including a graffiti art festival, an artisan night market and fitness classes. Additionally, a bike storage facility and 175 parking spaces will be located at Ink Underground. National Development has entered into a long-term lease as Ink Underground's operator in a public-private partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT).
