It will be built on a 1.27 acre site in Boston's booming South End. There will be 6,000 square feet of retail will be added. 180 above-ground parking spaces will be available upon completion. Within blocks are some of Boston's finest South End restaurants and cafes. Also close to public transportation with easy access to the MBTA's red line subway and silver line bus. This project is set to complete in early 2015.
In recent months, construction cranes have appeared in areas where they have not been spotted in a very long time. In the South End, for example, crews are busy putting the finishing touches on Troy Boston, a new, luxurious apartment complex at 275 Albany Street.
The Troy Boston consists of two connected towers, one that is 11 stories and another that rises 19 stories. The towers contain 378 apartments with 6,000 square feet on the ground floor reserved for shops and restaurants. Ten percent (38) of the units will be classified as affordable housing.
Troy Boston residents will enjoy a number of amenities in both the community areas and the apartments. An outdoor pool, complete with chic cabanas and a poolside deck, provides an ideal spot for relaxing and beating the summer heat. On the rooftop, a terrace featuring barbecues and fire pits offers residents the opportunity to mingle or entertain guests. There is also a rooftop kitchen and large dining area. Other amenities include a billiard room and exercise area featuring equipment for resistance and cardio training as well as a private yoga area.
The apartments include all of the design elements that should be found in a project that has been labeled a "modern classic." Wood floors add an elegant, warm touch that is further enhanced by the custom cabinetry in the bathrooms and kitchens as well as stone backsplashes and countertops. Custom closets provide both space and organization. Pet owners are sure to appreciate the pet-washing stations and dog-walking facilities.
All apartments feature a Nest Learning Thermostat, a wi-fi enabled, programmable, self-learning thermostat that conserves energy by optimizing the heating and cooling. Energy-efficient washers and dryers are also standard in each unit. In fact, the commitment to energy efficiency is apparent throughout the buildings. Troy Boston is expected to earn the coveted "Gold" rating from the LEED and save more than 1,379,700 kilowatt hours of electricity and more than 3,810,000 gallons of water. The Troy Boston features an electricity co-generator to produce 54 percent of its heat and 100 percent of its hot water.
Troy Boston offers convenient access to some of the finest restaurants in the city as well as some of Boston's best entertainment venues. The location is in the northeastern corner of the South End, very close to where the South End, Chinatown and South Boston meet.

The first residents of Troy Boston are expected to move in during January 2015. The project is currently in the pre-leasing stage for both one- and two-bedroom apartments. As part of the pre-leasing promotion, tenants may be eligible to receive up to two months of free rent over the lease term.
Those who think the address of Troy Boston sounds familiar may be remembering that 275 Albany Street has been in the news several times since 2008. Originally, developers presented a plan for two hotels at that address to the Boston Redevelopment Authority. This project was shelved, but in 2012, developers proposed building one residential building and one hotel. After further consideration, the developers decided to make both buildings residential, and the concept for the new Troy Boston was born.
The South End has always been a vibrant part of Boston, and the Troy Boston is certain to enhance the area's appeal even more. It is an excellent example of how sustainable development can be combined with esthetics to achieve remarkable results.
