Welcome to Ardsley

A gracious reminder of a privileged past


Set above trendy downtown Troy in a relaxed, walkable suburban area near RPI, Ardsley is a striking example of the city’s rebirth. It originally was an opulent private estate. Historic Ardsley Apartment Residence Boutique is celebrated as a welcome alternative to cookie-cutter apartments where spaces are often the very same-absent prewar charm, elegance and character.  

With unique contours and touches, Ardsley’s award-winning suites are a distinctive showcase in Capital Region apartment living. Their sturdy construction provides a substantial buffer from ambient sound-largely missing in new apt design today. Its developer pioneered in the regional creation of the Ultra-efficient Micro Suite and Junior Suite and continues to develop select spaces to provide the discerning renter with excellent situations when available. Square feet (SF) was never a consideration in Ardsley’s calculus.  The prime driver was aesthetics only. Therefore, the developer in almost all cases created the living spaces from the original contours and touches rather than a wholesale tear-out and rebuild. What may have been sacrificed in room size has been artfully made up in quality; Ignoring contractors’ wishes to tear out the vintage wooden windows and replace them with vinyl, the developer insisted they be saved and restored. The average resident stay at this venerable landmark property is 3-5 years. It is a model of residential stability. “It’s like living in a big house,” said one resident.

Its central location affords an especially favorable apartment option for those with interests in Albany and other key regional destinations. We invite you to explore the myriad benefits of residency. Pressed for time? Begin here.
