BOSTON (PRWEB) June 10, 2021
Officials from Fenway Sports Group Real Estate (FSGRE), a subsidiary of Fenway Sports Group (FSG), and the City of Boston, joined representatives from Gilbane Building Company and D'Agostino, Izzo & Quirk Architects, Inc. on June 7, 2021 to celebrate the official topping out of the new 91,500-SF MGM Music Hall at Fenway.
Designed by D'Agostino, Izzo & Quirk Architects, Inc., the new, state-of-the-art performing arts center is being constructed in the triangular lot on the corner of Lansdowne and Ipswich Streets. Once complete, the four-story venue will accommodate 5,000 patrons and play host to musical acts from around the globe. In addition to hosting live shows and concerts, the new space will have a variety of uses and offer the opportunity to partner with local schools, colleges, and other neighborhood organizations to create an epicenter for the performing arts community.
“The MGM Music Hall at Fenway will be a stellar addition to the City of Boston’s legendary and vibrant performing arts scene,” said Mike O’Brien, senior vice president and Massachusetts business unit leader for Gilbane. “We’re inspired by Fenway Sports Group’s vision to deliver this venue to our city and feel honored to have played a part in its lasting legacy.”
During the ceremony, attended by members of FSG ownership and City Councilor Kenzie Bok, a gold steel beam representing the venue’s naming rights sponsor, MGM, was signed by all attendees, including over 100 members of the project’s construction team.
The new MGM Music Hall at Fenway is expected to be complete in the early fall of 2022.
