Chatter about the proposed “Fenway Theater” began back in September when Fenway Sports Group announced its plans to build a new entertainment venue at the intersection of Lansdowne and Ipswich streets. Here’s what we know about the proposed theater, gleaned from planning documents Fenway Sports Group submitted to the Boston Planning and Development Agency on Feb. 22. ‘The Triangle Lot’ The new theater is slated to stand on a 1.5-acre piece of land referred to as “The Triangle Lot,” according to the plans, plus a portion of where the Fenway Garage currently is.
