Alder, a 165-unit luxury multifamily community that represents the first residential phase of the Allston Yards mixed-use development in Boston, has begun welcoming its first residents. The property is built over a full-sized Stop & Shop supermarket.

Bozzuto, the developer and manager of the residential property at 301 Guest St. in the Allston-Brighton area, said 30 percent of the market-rate units had been pre-leased. Allston Yards is a partnership between Bozzuto, Ahold Delhaize, New England Development and Southside Investment Partners.

The 67,000-square-foot Stop & Shop is slated to open this summer and will replace the grocer’s former location at 60 Everett St. There will be additional ground-floor retail at the building.

Alder and Stop & Shop are part of the 10.6-acre Allston Yards mixed-use development, one of the largest projects in the Allston-Brighton neighborhood. The development is expected to be constructed over eight to 10 years and is slated to have 1,000 residential units, 117,000 square feet of retail space and 420,000 square feet of office and laboratories spread across four buildings. The development will also include a one-acre community green.

Details on when the other parts of the project will be developed could not immediately be learned.

The pet-friendly building includes a pet spa. The property has a Walk Score of 89 and BLUEbike station on site.
