About Boylston Place - 1252-1270 Boylston Street

FenwayBoston, MA

Updated Plans released in October 2019 call for around 226,700 square feet of mixed-use programming comprised of 477 rental units above a ground-floor retail podium designed for a broad range of neighborhood-oriented culinary, lifestyle, and experiential tenants. The rental units will range in size from studios through 3 bedrooms and all would be furnished.

In recognition of the Project Site’s important heritage and affiliation with the LGBTQ community, the Project also includes the Boylston Black Box, a 10,000-square-foot LGBTQ-centric venue for the performing arts. The Boylston Black Box will be anchored by a 156-seat theater and will also include dedicated flex and community areas to serve as safe spaces. The Boylston Black Box will be delivered and operated on a not-for-profit basis. 

The original proposal had called for a 205,500-square-foot, 15-story mixed-use building to include about 500 units aimed largely at graduate students. However, after engaging with the Fenway Community Scape has adjusted the proposal and also plans to develop The Beacon & The Ipswich in conjunction with this project. The Ipswich would include the affordable housing component for both projects, with 220 total residential affordable units.
