Six different businesses are slated to move into the Ink Block neighborhood of the South End later this year, the developer announced last week.
National Development, developer and owner of Ink Block, announced late last month that a yoga studio, Spin studio and four different restaurants have finalized their plans to occupy space within the mixed-use development along Harrison Avenue and Traveler Street.
“We are so thrilled to open our first downtown Boston studio,” said Tess Roering, chief marketing officer at CorePower Yoga, a workout company based in Colorado and coming to Ink Block in September.
Turnstyle Cycle, a Spin studio based out of Cambridge, will open its Ink Block location in the spring, according to a press release.
In addition to fitness businesses, food retailers will be joining the Ink Block community, including brand new Italian restaurant Bar Mezzana and a sushi place by JP Fuji Group to be known as Fuji at Ink Block.
“Ink Block is a very exciting project,” said Fuji Group President, CEO and Chef Jimmy Liang. “We are proud to be part of this amazing development and we look forward to serving everyone in the neighborhood the best sushi they’ve ever had.”
Locally-sourced and organic restaurant chain Sweetgreen and a “craft cocktail club” yet to be named will be moving in as well, the press release said, which means that all retail space has been fully leased at Ink Block.
Ted Tye, managing partner of National Development, said construction on the fourth luxury apartment building, Siena, and AC Hotel by Marriot at Ink Block will begin this spring as some of the new restaurants and workout studios move in for business.
