Mapping the Construction Around Fenway Park on Opening Day

View as Map

As the World's Drunkest Baseball FansTM stumble toward urban-farming pioneer Fenway Park for the Red Sox's season opener against the Nationals today, they may notice some of the construction going on around the tiny big-time ballpark. Yes, Fenway (the neighborhood) has seen a lot of development in recent years and is slated to see a lot more. Projects such as the Landmark Center expansion and 1350 Boylston Street are getting underway. Ones such as the Viridian and the Van Ness are finishing up and readying for move-ins. All totaled, these projects will add around 2,200 new condos and apartments to the area and our map covers all of 'em: developments under way, or close to it, as well as those just recently finished.

1. Van Ness

1325 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02215

The 172-unit complex started pre-leasing earlier this year and is set to open to tenants starting next month. The two-tiered Van Ness also includes several floors of office space. Plus! The LEED Gold-certified development, with fitness center and 24-hour concierge, will house downtown Boston's first Target (in fact, it's being called the company's Boston flagship or "City Target").

2. 1350 Boylston Street

Boston, MA 02215

Long controversial because of its height, the 17-story, 240-unit apartment tower is in the early stages of construction, with the Burger King on the site only recently shuttered.

3. Fenway Point

1395 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02215

The city O.K.'d the 31-story tower earlier this year (it was originally called, simply, the Point). It will have 15 floors of 240 apartments and then 11 floors of 50 condos; there will also be a lot of retail space. And! A roof-top pool is due to top the whole shebang.

4. The Viridian

1282 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02215

The 342-unit, 18-story tower started leasing in January and opens to tenants this spring. It is LEED Gold-certified and comes with 10,000 square feet of retail.

5. Fenway Center

Commonwealth Avenue & Brookline Avenue
Boston, MA 02215

The oft-delayed five-building, 4.5-acre mega-project could very well get going in earnest this year (the Yawkey Way commuter rail station there opened in 2014). Stay tuned.

6. Landmark Center

401 Park Drive
Boston, MA 02215

The expansion of this mixed-use hub, which the city O.K.'d in January 2014, is slated to include up to 600 new apartments as well as 15,000 square feet of office space and a slew of new retail, too, including Boston's first Wegmans grocery store in a 75,000-square-foot space. The new parts of the Landmark Center would rise from 10 to 12 stories; and there would be an underground garage with 1,500 spaces as well.
