"Construction for a proposed 580-unit apartment complex in the Fenway is expected to begin next spring after Harvard University agreed to buy some of the housing for its students and staff who work in the nearby Longwood medical area....'The project will begin to 'transform Boylston Street into the urban village everyone's been talking about'....Harvard's commitment to buy some of the apartments not only means the project moves forward sooner but also satisfies city officials, who have asked educational institutions like Harvard to create housing for their students and employees, reducing the pressure on the rest of the residential market....The project has been long-awaited by Fenway residents, tired of the rundown buildings on the site and the scruffiness near Fenway Park."
