Boston Red Sox Eye Development Opportunities

Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox are reportedly considering opportunities to redevelop parcels near Fenway Park and land surrounding their spring training home, JetBlue Park.

None of the plans have been finalized to this point, but Fenway Sports Group  is said to be mulling options for the organization to complete redevelopment projects in both Boston and Fort Myers, FL. When it comes to Fenway Park, the Red Sox are reportedly considering their options for six parcels around the ballpark.

To this point, the organization is indicating that any new development would be intended to compliment Fenway Park and tie into the gameday experience. More from The Boston Herald:

FSG Real Estate is evaluating “myriad” uses for the sites, including expanding the Fenway Park and game-day “experience,” according to Jonathan Gilula, the team’s executive vice president of business affairs, who said the goal is to complement the ballpark and be consistent with development around it that’s boomed over the past decade.

“We’re encouraged by the opportunity here, and we’re very focused on dedicating more time and resources to fully understand what is possible,” Gilula said.

Parcels in play are the 73 Brookline Ave. parking lot next to Boston Beer Works, the 55 Yawkey Way parking lot, the 49 Lansdowne St. garage next to the Cask’n Flagon, the 160 Ipswich St. garage next to Boston Arts Academy, the 189 Ipswich St. garage on the Fenway Park side of the street and the 1265 Boylston St. building that houses Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill.

Hotel/retail opportunities are among the uses under consideration for the Brookline Avenue lot, though Gilula said “nothing is concrete at this point.”

As for JetBlue Park, the Herald reports that the development could take place over 20 acres in front of the facility. The Red Sox have called it their spring training home since its opening in 2012.
