Neighborhood Snapshot: Fenway

No longer just a place to catch a game and grab a burger, Fenway-Kenmore is now home to a number of new residential developments,  big retail names like Target and Sephora, the funky Verb hotel, and some truly fantastic restaurants. Before we get into the market stats, here are some fun facts about the neighborhood:

  • While it’s considered one neighborhood, there are four distinct pockets (East Fenway, West Fenway, Kenmore Square, and Audubon Circle)
  • The first game at Fenway Park was played against the Yankees (with a Boston victory) the week the Titanic sank in 1912
  • Time Out Market, a first-of-its kind food hall in America modeled after a concept started in Portugal, just opened in 401 Park Dr. (formerly the Landmark Center) housing 15 restaurants, 2 bars, and a demo kitchen

Fenway’s proximity to the Longwood Medical Area makes it a desirable choice for medical professionals looking to live close to work. From Fenway, you can easily walk to Newbury Street or hop on the green line to downtown in minutes.

What type of properties are available in Fenway? There’s something for every lifestyle. New construction includes Pierce Boston, a 378 feet tall tower with full-service amenities right on Brookline Ave. in the heart of all the action. For those  looking for more charm and quiet, there are rowhouses turned condos tucked away on quaint side streets.
