Since purchasing 17 Chapel in 2008, we’ve been looking forward to the moment when the finished building would change this downtown property from a warehouse to the finest luxury condos in the region.

The common areas, include a furnished lobby, on-site fitness center, indoor garage, and roof deck are complete. And now, the first homeowners are moving in to their custom-built condos.

What are some of the benefits of living at 17 Chapel?

1) Maintenance-free living: No more raking leaves, shoveling snow, or waiting around for the repairman.  Your low Homeowners Association fee covers the cost of maintaining the property and common areas.

2) Downtown Convenience: Live only a few minutes’ walk from first-class dining, arts, and entertainment.

3) Tax Savings: Thanks to a tax abatement program from the City of Albany, owners of the new condos at 17 Chapel get a 12-year tax break, making luxury living even more affordable. Taxes are as low as $672 per year, or $56 per month.
