It looks as though the Fenway / Kenmore area is the next hot neighborhood, if recent announcements are any indication.
The latest project has been floated by Children’s Hospital to build a mixed-use housing and parking project on land they currently own in the Fenway.
The article doesn’t discuss the specific location of the land, but I think it’s back behind where the Boston Beerworks building is, near the Harvard Pilgrim building. Could be wrong.

One of Boston’s most powerful hospitals is quietly laying plans for a large housing and parking complex a short walk from Fenway Park, according to executives familiar with the planning.
