Our Full Count of Construction Around Fenway

View as Map

Today is Opening Day as our beloved Red Sox play some assholes from down the coast. Let's take a look, then, at all the new construction planned or under way just beyond Fenway Park's environs, construction that includes downtown Boston's first Target (and maybe its first Wegmans, too!) as well as the area's first new hotel in decades, a retail strip dubbed "mini-Newbury," and hundreds of apartments.

UPDATE: We revamped this map in October 2013, with fresh points and fresh info.
