Food Hall Coming to Best Buy Space at Landmark Center in Boston's Fenway

A complex in Boston's Fenway neighborhood that is being redeveloped will include a food emporium in the space where an electronics chain had been.

According to an article from Bisnow, Samuels & Associates is planning to turn the former Best Buy store at the Landmark Center into a food hall which would spill into an open park area. Few details have been given as of yet on the food hall or other aspects of the development, as this is part of a "sneak preview" of plans for the site; the master plan is expected to be disclosed in about 60 days.

Earlier reports had a Wegmans market going into the Landmark Center, though Samuels & Associates is modifying the expansion plans for the development and it is not known if the grocery store is still part of the plans.

The Landmark Center is located where Brookline Avenue and Park Drive meet.

[October 3 update: Eater Boston states that the food hall coming to the Landmark Center will be a location of Lisbon's Time Out Market, which the Time Out media company first opened in Lisbon in 2014. The article says that a location of the food hall will open in Miami in 2018, while the Boston location is expected to open in 2019--and it will include 16 restaurants, 2 bars, a retail shop, a cooking academy, and outdoor patios.]

[October 18, 2018 update: A licensing board hearing page within the City of Boston website gives more information on the upcoming Time Out Market, mentioning that it plans to have a market/dining area and bar areas with a total seating capacity of approximately 492 indoors and 136 outdoors. The hearing notice also indicates that the market is expected to have 27,421 square feet of space in total.]
