New Bedford police responded to reports of smashed window at Waterfront Historic Area League, or WHALE’s future co-creative center on Acushnet Ave and Union St at 3:49 a.m. Upon arrival two large commercial windows were broken on the Acushnet Ave. side of 141 Union Street. It does not appear that entry was gained.
Per WHALE’s website: “the Co-Creative Center will be a 10,000 square-foot development that will foster New Bedford’s creative economy. Located on 139/141 Union St, this abandoned block will be transformed into a collaborative retail, living and arts space that includes a gallery, education and maker space in the heart of downtown’s historic district. The initiative began construction in Spring 2016 with the full restoration expected to open October 2017.
