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.Read More
Our Full Count of Construction Around Fenway
Construction could start this year on this ginormous, five-building, solar-powered development over the Mass. Pike. It would drop at least 550 apartments, plus retail and office space, at Brookline and Commonwealth avenues.
The building will plunk 320 residential units, ranging from studios to three-bedroom units, atop a two-story retail base with restaurants.
1282 Boylston Street
The 322-unit tower will have rentals all the way up to three-bedrooms. Renderings were unveiled in September.
1085 Boylston Street
This new building in the Fenway would not only have 30 apartments (all one-bedrooms) and underground parking, but a green roof accessible to tenants. Moreover! The developer wants to use the revenue from the building to fund its charity work.
Wegmans at Landmark Center
The chi-chi grocer has thrown down the gantlet against Whole Foods with its plans to open at a redeveloped Landmark Center.
In a bid to keep most of its students on-campus, the Wentworth Institute of Technology plans a 110,760 square-foot dorm to house 305 students.
Demolition work wrapped just after the new year on a complex (once dubbed Fenway Triangle) that will not only drop 300 apartments but also downtown Boston's first Target!
More than 100 residential units and 40,000 square feet of retail space is planned on Mass. Ave. between Boylston and Newbury streets.
The same development team behind Parcel 12 would plunk 111 residential units, 270 hotel rooms, and nearly 10K square feet of retail on Boylston, between Dalton and Scotia streets.
Marriott Residence Inn
The 175-room inn, slated to open this summer, is the first new hotel in the area in decades.
The retail spawned by Boylston West will create, in the words of The Boston Globe, a "mini-Newbury" along a formerly gritty passageway.
