Bozzuto welcomes residents at Alder -
community within Allston Yards

June 07, 2024 - Owners Developers & Managers

Boston, MA According to Bozzuto, the first residents have moved into Alder, a new residential community atop a full-sized Stop & Shop delivering this summer. The preliminary residential phase of the Allston Yards mixed-use development, Alder includes 165 apartment homes and ground floor retail, in addition to the Stop & Shop. Thus far, nearly 30% of the available market-rate apartments have been leased at the time of initial move-ins. Developed and managed by Bozzuto, Alder is located near the Boston Landing commuter rail station, one stop away from downtown, within the dynamic Guest St. corridor. 

Further enhancing the evolving Allston-Brighton area, Alder and the forthcoming phases of Allston Yards will complement the streetscape with retail and entertainment destinations along with an influx of residences. Opening this summer, the new flagship 67,000 s/f Stop & Shop will replace the grocer’s former location at 60 Everett St., offering a fresh look and feel and a wide assortment for customers with a focus on healthy options at a great value. The Stantec-designed community’s upscale residences, convenient access to downtown, and status as an up and coming live-work-play destination has drawn interest from those attracted to the top-of-the line design and simplified living experience. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome our first residents to Alder and are excited to help them get settled in this new community to experience all the neighborhood has to offer,” said Kimberly Eley, general manager of Alder at Allston Yards. “We have seen a lot of interest around the building’s abundance of amenities, the uniqueness of the on-site Stop & Shop, and the immediate adjacency of the Boston Landing station. Now that baseball season’s underway, it’s particularly awesome to be one stop away from the ballpark.”

Apartment homes at Alder feature open-concept floor plans and high-end appliances and finishes, including woodgrain flooring, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, walk-in showers, smart thermostats, stainless-steel appliances, electric ranges and ovens, in-unit washers and dryers, and LED under cabinet and accent lighting. 

Alder offers a full-service concierge, secured package room, and bike and private storage. Additional amenities include a landscaped courtyard, fitness center and barre studio, billiards and game tables, a lounge and outdoor deck with a firepit, and a library and workstations. The building is pet-friendly, offering a luxurious interior pet spa. Alder will be situated facing a one-acre community green, expected to deliver in 2025. With a Walk Score of 89 and a BLUEbike station on site, Alder offers access to the best of Allston-Brighton and beyond.

Alder consists of 165 units, including 21 permanently affordable units. 

Alder is the first building in the transformative mixed-use Allston Yards development, which will include 1,000 residential units, 117,000 s/f of retail, and 420,000 s/f of office and lab space, complemented by a one-acre community green. Allston Yards is a partnership between Bozzuto, Ahold Delhaize, New England Development, and Southside Investment Partners.
