Boston—Skanska USA recently announced the topping out of 1350 Boylston St., a 17-story, 212-unit multifamily property in Boston’s Fenway/Kenmore area. The developer broke ground on the property in late-2015, and is partnering with Prudential Real Estate Investors.

Within a short walk from both Fenway Park and the Fenway MBTA Station for the Green Line, the property is also located just feet away from the iconic Landmark Center and across the street from mixed-use development The Van Ness.

It’s all about location, and Skanska knows it: “1350 Boylston is the perfect opportunity to live in one of Boston’s most unique and energetic neighborhoods, steps from an outstanding mix of retail and restaurants that continue to evolve,” said Charley Leatherbee, head of the company’s Boston real estate development operations, in prepared remarks.

The 183,000-square-foot residential tower will also bring 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. According to the expanded project notification form submitted to the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the team involved in the project also includes ADD Inc. as architect, Cosentini Associates as building engineer, Bohler Engineering as civil engineer and Epsilon Associates as permitting consultants. According to Yardi Matrix, the building is slated for completion in mid-2017, and will include 25 affordable units as well as a 105-spot underground parking garage.
