Fenway Center

Though the Fenway Center project is not in an Urban Renewal area, it is an example of the power of the BRA’s blight finding ability. Projects are only eligible for city and state financial incentives if the local agency (in this case, the BRA) has made blight findings, and in this case the blight finds allowed the project to receive a special tax assessment, which mitigated some of the excessive costs of building on decking over the Mass Pike. The 1.3 million sq ft mixed-use project will contain about 550 apartments, retail, restaurants, offices and up to 1,290 parking spaces and will utilize cutting-edge green technologies. The Fenway Center Project also includes the construction of Yawkey station, which was completed in 2014.
