Future Of Boston: Real Estate, Transportation Development Projects
Tuesday, February 18, 2014
Right now there is more than $5 billion worth of real estate under construction in Boston including brand new buildings in the Seaport district, Downtown Crossing, Boston Landing at the New Balance Headquarters, and now Fenway. Developer John Rosenthal wants to build right over the Mass Turnpike between the bridges at Beacon Street and Brookline Avenue. “This is by far one of the biggest projects in the city of Boston,” says an enthusiastic Rosenthal. If Rosenthal and the city can iron out an agreement on tax breaks the new “Fenway Center” will go up. It includes three apartment buildings, a new parking garage, and a 27-story high rise towering over the historic ball park.
