Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

The shorter portion looks just about topped out, the taller has another floor or two to go:

This building is steel and concrete. No way you'll hear a toddler running above you.

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Steel on this is up about two stories above grade on the Ortiz side, one story on the Beacon St side. If everything keeps going at this rate it'll be topped out before spring, especially now that...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

This phase is the two buildings south of the Pike and none of the decking over the Pike.

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

In the grand scheme of construction interruptions this is minuscule. And when it's done, there will be accessible access from Beacon to Yawkey (which doesn't exist now).

I'm with you that the...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Ah, this could clear up what exactly is going on with the deck over the CR platform as it reaches Beacon.

If you're coming from anywhere west of Yawkey and south of the Pike, Maitland to Ortiz is...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Right, the renders definitely show some sort of permanent plaza here over the platform:

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

This (even phase 1) is one of the sleeper projects I'm most excited about. The area around the corner of Maitland and Beacon is the worst part of the Fenway (my neighborhood), and this is going to...

Re: Fenway Center Phase I | ~775 Beacon St | Fenway

Re: Fenway Center Phase I | ~775 Beacon St | Fenway

I did read the article. The "more than 1,200 spaces" referenced therein come in Phase II, not Phase I. Their only connection to Phase I is that Phase I will contain a "pedestrian connection" to...

Re: Fenway Center (One Kenmore) | Turnpike PARCEL 7, Beacon Street | Fenway

Put me in the camp that will be happy with this project even if only Phase I gets completed. It'll still add two buildings' worth of housing and activate that wind-swept lot on Beacon.

Yeah, these plans look about 10-15 years out of date to me, both in scale and in style.
