The developer of the former Boston Herald site on Harrison Avenue said Wednesday that Whole Foods Market plans to open a 50,000-square-foot supermarket there.
National Development, the project’s Newton-based developer, added that when Whole Foods opens in 2014, it will be the first full-size grocery store in Boston’s South End neighborhood.
National Development is calling its six-acre project “Ink Block South End,” and besides a Whole Foods, it will feature retail and restaurant space on the ground floor and 471 luxury apartments.
In a statement, National Development managing partner Ted Tye said, “Whole Foods’ flagship store will help set the tone for the vibrant, 18 hour neighborhood that we are creating at Ink Block.”
