WELCOME TO THE NEW FENWAY.A metamorphosis is underway. Farm-to-table restaurants sprout up like beanstalks. Life revolves around the seasons. Days start in cafés with a morning coffee and end in the Fens with an evening run. Music venues and art exhibits beckon spontaneity. There are many great neighborhoods — but there is only one Fenway.
Eat. Drink. Repeat.Down the street, a celebrity chef churns barbecue magic out of a 4,700-pound smoker. Across the way, one restaurant harvests its own oysters, another brews its own beer. In this neighborhood, you can sit down at a white tablecloth one night, and a classic diner booth the next. Wash it all down under the soft light of the hottest new cocktail lounge or up at the bar of your trusty old watering hole.

Say Yes to Everything.Worlds collide in this mecca of art, live music, and sports. Getting to the MFA or the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is a walk in the park (literally), while nightly shows at the House of Blues and Church form the hub of Boston’s burgeoning music scene. The Fenway enjoys an abundance of culture, and The Viridian is right in the middle of it all.

Have It All.From Whole Foods and Bed Bath & Beyond, to the coming Target and Wegmans, our neighborhood is anything but short on conveniences. The Viridian is also a short walk from the boutiques of Newbury Street, the Shops at Prudential Center, and big box stores at Landmark Center—and it’s all framed by lush expanses of the Back Bay Fens.

Be Educated.Refreshingly removed yet walking distance from many campuses, The Viridian strikes the perfect balance for educators, researchers and graduate students. Harvard’s Medical, Dental, and Public Health schools are all close by, along with the BU School of Management and several others.

Live Well.A jaunt across the Fens brings residents to Boston’s Longwood Medical Area, a collection of world-class hospitals and research institutions. Its proximity makes health and wellness easy for our residents, whether they have an MD or not.

Get There.Conveniently, The Viridian is steps away from the Green Line, Commuter Rail, major MBTA bus routes, Kenmore Square, Back Bay, and Longwood Medical Area. Nearby Hubway and Zipcar stations make it a breeze to get in, around, and out of town.
