Our coveted Stone Place address is steps away from the best dining, shopping, and entertainment venues, while our modern studios, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments will meet all your needs and desires for the perfect home.

We have a heated, resort-inspired saltwater pool with plush seating, gas grilling stations, outdoor dining area, fire pit, state-of-the-art strength and cardio club that is open 24-hours, and a cozy resident club suite and café featuring a double exposed gas fireplace, work from home space, complimentary Wi-Fi service, billiards table and cozy seating.

Among our favorite details, we count the oversized windows, the 2-inch faux-wood blinds, plank flooring, granite countertops, fully equipped kitchens, and vaulted ceilings.

However, it turns out, this historic landmark has plenty of stories to tell. After doing some digging, it was discovered that National Badminton Champion, Jack Purcell designed his signature Converse when the factory was still making the soles for the popular sneakers. Now this story lends itself to a blend of contemporary architecture and design combined with a flair of historic and rustic charm.
