ANOTHER BALLPARK IDEA FLOATED FOR THE RED SOX
Published November 21, 1995
Developer Stephen Karp said yesterday he has had "preliminary" talks with both Red Sox and Boston city officials about building a new ballpark for the team at the site of the Sears building near Fenway Park, according to the BOSTON HERALD. Phil Primack notes Karp is motivated by "flat retail prospects" associated with his development of the Sears building. Karp said he is only pursuing a "concept" at this point, but added, "The city and the Red Sox both appear to be open-minded." Karp said a facility would fit on the Sears site, but he "may need some additional land." He also added that the Fenway area is already associated with baseball which would help neighborhood support of the project (BOSTON HERALD, 11/21).
