Developer Joe Rosenthal has won a major land-court ruling that should allow him to proceed with plans to build a massive $450 million mixed-used project near Fenway Park and partly over the Mass Turnpike.
The Fenway Center project has been held up by a dispute with a nearby landowner who has argued the development will interfere with its operations. The complaint was effectively dismissed. No decisions have been announced yet whether the case might now proceed to trial court.
Rosenthal said his project, which he hopes to start next year, will include hundreds of new apartments, shops, offices and other amenities.
Ah, just another development day in Boston, which seems to be experiencing a mini-commercial construction boom these days, despite the weak economy.
