PROPOSED PLAN CALLS FOR NEW FENWAY OVER MASS TURNPIKE
Published January 9, 1995
A proposal for a replacement for Fenway Park was unveiled by MA-based architects Eduardo Lozano and Michael Baskin last week in Boston. The plan calls for a new park to be built next to the current location on a deck over the Mass Turnpike, linking it with the Hynes Veterans Convention Center, via a half-mile pedestrian walkway (Richard Kindleberger, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/6). Red Sox VP John Buckley denies any claims that the two parties have met, but another source insists that meetings have been held without Buckley's knowledge (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 1/6).
