The Albert Pope Building
The Albert Pope Building | 221 Columbus Avenue
The Albert Pope Building, located on the border of Back Bay and the South End, is full of historic value. Built in 1880, the building originally served as Albert Pope’s factory. Albert Pope, considered the father of the American bicycle, manufactured nearly a quarter million Columbia bicycles annually. The building later became home to Cahners Publishing Company, and was eventually developed and converted into loft-style condos in 1998 by Heath Properties. The luxury building offers full-service concierge and security.
The 25 residences in the building perfectly balance traditional and modern design. Condos all boast open floor plans, extremely high ceilings, and the upper-level units have unique Palladium windows. Hardwood floors and a magnificent fireplace warm up the large and open space. The traditional design of the living area is balanced with the modern design of the spa-like bathroom and gourmet kitchen. The bathroom is outfitted with a glass shower and separate soaking tub to provide a clean-cut feel and add to the open space theme of the home. The kitchen is completed with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.
While you have a chef-grade kitchen available, if you do not feel like cooking, you can order in from Mistral, the Best of Boston French Restaurant that is located on the first floor. The central location of the building gives residents easy access not only to Mistral, but also other 5-star restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues in the area. To explore other Boston neighborhoods or leave the city, Back Bay Station T, bus stop, and commuter rail lines are conveniently located nearby. Garage parking provides easy access to your car. For a quieter atmosphere and to admire the city from afar, you can relax on the common roof terrace with magnificent views.
