About Crossroads at Kenmore
560 Commonwealth Avenue, Kenmore Square, Fenway, Boston, MA
This redevelopment project is a collaboration of Mark Kenmore, LLC and Buckminster Annex Corporation proposing two new, distinct hotels on adjacent redevelopment sites in Kenmore Square.
Two proposed hotel towers in the heart of Kenmore Square featuring 763 hotel rooms and 375,000 square feet of space.
On property owned by Mark Development at 560-574 Commonwealth Avenue, at the intersection of Beacon Street and Commonwealth Avenue, a 28-story, 300-foot-tall, 221,000-square-foot tower would be built featuring 389 rooms. The Mark Development tower would also include ground-floor retail and a roof deck restaurant. Across Beacon Street, on property owned by Buckminister Annex Corporation at 655-665 Beacon Street adjacent to the existing Hotel Buckminster, a 19-story, 210-foot-tall, 211,000-square-foot tower would be built featuring 390 hotel rooms.
Both buildings would feature active ground floors; parking garages would be built underneath both buildings. Existing improvements, including a single-story Citizens Bank building on the Mark site and a single-story parking garage and four-story office building on the Buckminster site, would be demolished. The proposed towers would be located steps to multiple rapid transit lines, Boston University, and Fenway Park. As part of the project, the developers would make pedestrian-friendly streetscape improvements.
