$600 million, 1.1-million-square-foot mixed-use air rights development project in Kenmore Square that will consist of five new buildings, including a 27-story tower, above the Massachusetts Turnpike and on existing surface parking lots. A total of approximately 550 residential units, 160,000 square feet of office space and over 50,000 square feet of retail will be built at Fenway Center, in addition to over 30,000 square feet of park and green space. A seven-story parking garage at Fenway Center will include 1,290 parking spaces. As part of the project, the Yawkey MBTA commuter rail station was recently overhauled, and new public access roads were constructed throughout the existing parking lots.
Fenway Center will be constructed in two phases. The $240 million Phase 1 will entail two residential buildings (Buildings 1 and 2) of 7 and 13 stories, respectively, containing a total of approximately 339,000 square feet that will be built on existing surface parking lots. Phase I, known as The Bower, will construct 312 apartments, 37,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and 200 underground parking spaces. A 12,000-square-foot air rights deck and landscaped pedestrian walkway will be constructed over Yawkey Station as part of Phase I. Construction of Phase I is now underway, with completion expected in early 2020.
Phase 2 of Fenway Center will include a 27-story, 375,000-square-foot mixed-use office and residential tower (Building 3) and a 7-story, 111,000-square-foot residential building (Building 4) that will be built on an air rights deck above the Massachusetts Turnpike. All four main buildings at Fenway Center will have ground-floor retail space. Phase 2 will also entail the construction of a 7-story, 274,000-square-foot parking garage (Building 5) on the air rights deck.
