Albany, New York was founded in the early 1600s after being discovered by Henry Hudson. Then known as Fort Orange, Albany served Hudson and his subsequent Dutch settlers as a trading hub for importing and exporting goods at the crossroads of the Hudson River; cleverly named in honor of its founding father, Henry Hudson. More than half a century later, the Fort was captured by the English and renamed in honor of the Duke of Albany. In January 1797, Albany became the official capital of New York State.
Nestled among the beautiful historic sites of Downtown Albany, Steuben Place Apartments has a unique history of its own. The building was originally the D&H office space for the exponentially growing and thriving railroad business before they chose to relocate closer to the Hudson River, Steuben Place Apartments sits right in the center of it all. Over time, the building was home to various state agencies before beginning its multi-family transition to Steuben Place Apartments.
A major goal of the Steuben Place Apartments project was to keep the integrity and historical architecture that stood at the corner of Pearl Street and Steuben Place for nearly 200 years. Now, every apartment home boasts the craftsmanship of the original architecture, making Steuben Place Apartments one of a kind in Downtown Albany and the surrounding metropolis.
