The Boston Red Sox ownership group has proposed adding an area behind Fenway Park’s legendary bleachers section for concessions, restrooms, and “other elements designed to enhance the fan experience,” according to a filing in late December with the Boston Planning & Development Agency.

The franchise also wants to create a room with “sweeping views” of America’s oldest ballpark for hosting large groups for private events.

And the renovations would include modifying existing space to connect some of the ballpark with a proposed 5,000-seat performance space called Fenway Theater—which would be Boston’s largest indoor music venue. That project is proposed for a triangular site behind the bleachers section between Lansdowne and Ipswich streets.

Everything is tentative at this point, with the city intending in early 2019 to review the latest proposal, per the Globe’s Travis Andersen. Stay tuned.
