The plans include developing The Forsyth Institute property, adjacent to the Museum, situated along Boston's historic Fenway.

ABA is set to complete a comprehensive assessment of the Forsyth property to assess the best methods to integrate it into the MFA.

Completed in 1914, The Forsyth Institute comprises approximately 115,000ft² on 1.6 acres of land bordering Forsyth Way and the Fenway. The newly expanded MFA campus represents the largest frontage along the Fens.

ABA says it will address the relationship between the Fens and the Forsyth property, recognising the importance of the landscape to the Fenway neighbourhood.
