One Kenmore project announced

The Boston Globe reports today that residential developer John Rosenthal has proposed a 1.3 million square foot project in the Kenmore/Fenway area.

The new project will include 668 residential units (most likely as apartments), 57,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and parking for more than 1,200 vehicles. 500 feet of the eastbound side of the Mass Pike would be covered by the development.

Other area improvements benefiting from One Kenmore will be improved access to Fenway Park from the MBTA Commuter Rail's Yawkey Station and pedestrian access between Beacon St and Brookline Ave.

Rosenthal had tried previously to develop the Lansdowne St. parking garage into a similar project, but the Red Sox opposed it. With the development now on the other side of Brookline Ave, the Red Sox are not only supportive, they're minority partners in the deal.
