Developers Aim To Add 2 Residential Buildings Next To Fenway Church

The site of the proposed two-building development on Park Drive.

A development team is proposing a two-building multifamily project on the same property as a church in the Fenway.

Transom Real Estate and Harbor Run Development filed plans Thursday with the Boston Planning & Development Agency for the redevelopment of the 61K SF parcel at 165 Park Drive. The lot is adjacent to the Holy Trinity Orthodox Church on Park Drive.

The plans call for two seven-story buildings totaling 108K SF. The buildings would include 111 apartments with an undisclosed number of them being rent-restricted. The development will also include up to four parking spaces and a car-share service for residents. 

In a partnership with the developers, the church would continue to operate, according to the plans. The developers have agreed to help with repairs and landscaping improvements at the church, which was built in 1960, according to Universal Hub.

The Fenway area has been booming with real estate activity over the past decade, and a host of additional development is planned. WS Development and the Fenway Sports Group are seeking BPDA approval for the Fenway Corners project, a 2.1M SF mixed-use development. The development is composed of eight buildings on 13 parcels surrounding Fenway Park.

Samuels & Associates in December proposed a 553K SF redevelopment of the lot including the Star Market grocery store on Boylston Street. The developer plans to turn the lot into a mixed-use development consisting of office, research and development, retail and cultural spaces.
