It looks like the five-building, $450 million Fenway Center project is a go. The Globe's Casey Ross brings breaking word that a legal challenge to the mega-development (we're talking at least 550 apartments, plus commercial and retail space) has exhausted its last state appeal: "The appeals court found that there was no legal basis for HRPT Medical Buildings Realty Trust to block the $450 million project. HRPT had sued, claiming Fenway Center would improperly infringe on property it owns on Brookline Avenue."
This is Boston, where legal battles over development are never dead, they're not even past. But, barring further challenges, construction on Fenway Center, including its solar panels, could get under way this coming spring.
