Boston regulators on Tuesday approved construction of more than 1,100 new homes from East Boston to the Fenway, adding to a residential building boom that is already transforming large swaths of the city.

The new homes, mostly upscale apartments, will be spread among four different neighborhoods in Boston, where a combination of high rents and low vacancy has led to an increase in building activity.

The projects approved include 414 apartments in a 22-story tower at 399 Congress St. across from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center; a 320-unit residential tower at Brookline Avenue and Boylston Street in the Fenway; 184 apartments at 140-150 Mt. Vernon St. near the University of Massachusetts Boston in Dorchester; and 196 residences at 122-148 Border St. on the East Boston waterfront.
