Apparently I’m an IG stalker. I’m not even sure how I started following @jabella36, but his sense of humor, great body and a disregard for clothing probably all contributed to my following his account. The photo shared above was posted on January 1 which leads me to believe this must’ve been his New Year’s Eve outfit. I hope I get an invitation to next year’s party. It looks like fun.

The Girard at 600 Harrison Avenue recently opened in the South End
There has been a lot of construction in Boston’s South End lately with much of the development taking place in a section of the neighborhood referred to as SoWa (South of Washington Street).
Below is a roundup of much of the development activity in the neighborhood.
AC Hotel South End – 273 Albany Street Construction on this 200-room AC Hotel by Marriott started in February 2016 next to the Ink Block Development. The hotel’s ground floor will host a number of amenities including a bar and lounge area, a fitness center, an indoor pool, conference rooms and more. The six story building is expected (but we will see) to complete construction by the end of this year.
The Factory at 46 Wareham – 46 Wareham Street Construction started on this mixed use building in November 2015. The project will restore the facade of an existing historic industrial building and construct a new addition to create condominiums as well as 30,000+ square feet of office space. Originally scheduled to open in the summer of 2017 the timeline seems ambitious but progress has clearly been made.
345 Harrison Avenue Construction on the two 14-story residential buildings that comprise this new development in the South End started in March 2016. The development is expected to include 585 residential units, 275 parking spaces, 325 bicycle spaces as well as 40,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. Located across from the Ink Block Development this is one of several new construction projects that is transforming the neighborhood by converting under-used or vacant space into vibrant residential complexes. 345 Harrison is expected to complete construction by the end of 2018.
The Lucas – 136 Shawmut Avenue Construction on this unique 33-unit residential building repurposes what was a vacant German Catholic church into a modern luxury condominium. While construction started in October of 2015, no date of completion has been provided, but word on the street is that this will not be finished before the end of this year – possibly early 2018.
370-380 Harrison Avenue Construction has yet to begin on this project as plans await approval after some positive initial feedback. It was last January that plans were initially shared which would demolish the Quinzani Bakery and Ho Kong Bean Sprout Co. on the corner of Harrison Avenue and East Berkeley Streets to create a 300,000 square-foot housing and retail project with 180 parking spaces.

I’m busy juggling two roles as I transition positions at my company so I’ve not been able to spend the amount of time I need to write all the posts I normally do each week. I didn’t think anyone would mind me inserting this photograph as a “filler” post in the interim.
