Skanska USA Commercial Development and Prudential Real Estate Investors announced today the formation of a joint venture to develop a 17-story, 183,000-square-foot residential tower at 1350 Boylston Street. The distinctive residential building will include 212 apartments and 7,008-square-feet of ground-floor retail and target LEED® Gold certification.

The project is located in the heart of The Fenway, walking distance to some of Boston’s most iconic entertainment and sporting venues, cultural destinations, and healthcare and educational institutions. Situated at the intersection of Boylston and Kilmarnock Streets, 1350 Boylston will benefit from its proximity to the MBTA’s Green Line and the Yawkey commuter rail station, and is well-situated for residents to take advantage of the neighborhood’s convenient amenities, shops, restaurants and open space.

“The Fenway is one of Boston’s most dynamic and rapidly growing neighborhoods, so we knew we had to deliver something unique to compliment the tremendous vitality of this community. 1350 Boylston will offer its future residents the perfect combination of local culture, entertainment and urban living, with modern apartments and a suite of amenities,” said Shawn Hurley, executive vice president of Skanska USA Commercial Development in Boston.

“Prudential Real Estate Investors is pleased to continue its partnership with Skanska to deliver to our investors and the community a high quality, energy-efficient apartment building in Boston’s vibrant, transit-oriented and amenity-rich Fenway neighborhood,” said Kevin R. Smith, head of Americas for PREI.

1350 Boylston will feature a tower design with an inspired and unique façade, and sweeping views over the Back Bay Fens, toward the Blue Hills beyond. The tower's layout will allow for a more personal living experience, while the mix of building amenities will complement the growing vibrancy of The Fenway. Residents will enjoy engaging spaces throughout the building’s common areas, with a dynamic flow between indoor and outdoor space.

Add Inc., now with Stantec, is the architect.  Construction will begin this month.
