Samuels details plans for Boston’s Fenway Triangle

Samuels & Associates announced this week its plans for the 2.2 acre parcel known as the Fenway Triangle, unveiling a blueprint for 290 residential units, 225,000 square feet of office space and a smattering of retail and parking facilities.

The plan, filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority Monday, is the first step in the BRA’s so-called Article 80 review process for major development projects in the city. The filing comes roughly a month after news that Samuels & Associates, run by real estate developer and film producer Steve Samuels, was closing in on deal to acquire the 950,000-square-foot Landmark Center across the street from the Fenway Triangle.

Indeed, Samuels’ development track record is largely rooted in the Fenway area, with the Trilogy apartment tower — situated across the street from the Landmark — among his more prominent projects.

Monday’s filing would further Samuels’ ongoing redevelopment of the Fenway neighborhood, which encompasses Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox. According to the BRA filing, the development would add two new buildings to the existing structures at 132 Brookline Avenue and 1325 Boylston St. The Brookline Ave. site, comprising 0.3 acres, would be home to a new 17-story building replete with 150 residential units and 5,000 square feet of retail space. The proposal would convert around 14,000 square feet of existing office space to accommodate the plan.

At the 2-acre parcel at 1325 Boylston St., Samuels has proposed a new structure to house 225,000 square feet of office space, 140 residential units and 160,000 square feet of retail space. It also hopes to include underground parking to accommodate 575 vehicles.
