Apartments, Condos Proposed for Former Quinzani's Bakery Space in Boston's South End
Last summer, we reported that a century-old commercial bakery in the South End that supplied many local businesses was closing and its building was being demolished. Now we have learned that the developer that owns the property is planning to put up a residential building in its space.
Universal Hub mentions (via a project notification form within the Boston Redevelopment Authority site) that Boston-based Related Beal has submitted plans to build a 14-story structure on Harrison Avenue at the site of the former Quinzani's Bakery along with the now-closed Ho Kong Bean Sprout, with the building consisting of 280 condos and apartments as well as commercial/retail space on the ground floor and an underground garage. UH also says that a "mid-block connector" from Traveler Street to E. Berkeley Street is included in the plans.
Quinzani's Bakery, which shut its doors for good in August of 2015, supplied dinner rolls, sandwich rolls, French and Italian bread, and more to approximately 800 restaurants, caterers, and food service companies. It first started out as a pastry shop in 1919 in Boston's old Combat Zone.
The address for the proposed development in the Quinzani's Bakery and Ho Kong Bean Sprout space is 370-380 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118.
