Writing on Boston's unprecedented real estate boom, Amy Gamerman in the Wall Street Journal on June 24 recognized Troy Boston, developed by Gerding Edlen:

"Troy Boston, which opened last year in the South End, has its own Instagram page; residents use an app for valet dry-cleaning, park their bikes in a ground floor commuter lot, and hang out in several indoor and outdoor loungers. Recent events include a cooking demonstration by chef Ming Tsai, a hip-hop pool party, and catered "Yappy Hours" at the dog run. Rents range from $2,395 to $4,613.

'I work in a very social up-and-coming company, and I got the same vibe from the Troy--you want to be an active part of it,' said Chris Gannon, a 31-year-old director of talent for a tech company, who moved into a one-bedroom there in January, paying $3,250."
