Fenway Center to move forward

Fourteen years after he began planning a major development in the air over the Massachusetts Turnpike at Kenmore Square, developer John Rosenthal says he is finally ready to start work. Construction would commence with the part of the project that would sit on firm ground. On Wednesday, Rosenthal and his development partners said that they have raised $230 million in financing and expect to soon begin construction of two apartment buildings on parking lots near Fenway Park. That would be the first phase of the long-delayed Fenway Center, a nearly $600 million complex that will include three other structures over the turnpike between Beacon Street and Brookline Avenue, including a 27-story tower. The project has long promised to accelerate the transformation of Kenmore Square.


A Look at Boston’s First Sky Cabanas

A good view of the Boston skyline is priceless, right?

In Pierce Boston‘s case, it’s a mere $300,000 or so. The luxury apartment complex that’s slated to be completed in 2018 just began marketing a new feature to its future residents—sky cabanas.

The precious rooftop space of the 30-story tower is being divvied up: one side will offer an outdoor pool and lounge, and the other will contain 12 glass-enclosed spaces. While these spaces are called sky cabanas, they’re not actually huts with roofs. Instead, the 150- to 250-square foot cubes offer open-air, sweeping views of the city.
