Red Sox owners partner with developer to revitalize Fenway Park area

You won’t get a Mookie Betts, but do you want a Dunkin Donuts?

The Fenway Sports Group Real Estate, a division of the Fenway Sports Group which owns the Sox, are joining with the D’Angelo Family to take land they own outside the stadium to give the neighborhood a freshened look featuring stores, offices, apartment buildings, public art and green space, the Boston Globe reported Monday.

The Fenway Sports Group, which also owns a NASCAR team, Liverpool FC soccer club and the New England Sports Network, the D’Angelo family which owns the sports apparel company ’47 Brand and WS Development which has had a hand in developing several projects in Boston, including the Boston Seaport and Downtown Crossing have been eyeing such a project for years. The Globe, however, reported that discussions have picked up over the last year and a half.

“For 20 years, our goal has been to preserve, protect, and enhance the local and national treasure that is Fenway Park,” Red Sox principal owner John Henry said in a statement. “We are excited to now fully expand our focus through a partnership with WS and the D’Angelo family as we further contribute to a neighborhood that has transformed over the past two decades.”

A detailed layout of the group’s plans is expected to be filed in 2021, the Globe reported.
