As promised, here’s some more photo from our recent visit to the booming Harrison Avenue area of the South End. Yesterday it was the Ink Block.
Today it’s photos of the new $185 million Troy Boston mixed-used project (378 apartment units, retail and parking) on Traveler Street, right across the road from Ink Block. Troy Boston is being built by Normandy Real Estate Partners.
Above, is a photo taken from Albany Street. Notice the Planet Storage’s soon-to-be obscured Killer Whale Mural.
Below, a close-up of the construction site and mural:
Fyi: The name ‘Troy’ comes from the district’s past history as an area used by the Boston & Albany Railroad. Most of the streets in the area were once named after upper-state New York towns and cities, before urban renewal in the 1950s.
