BUILDING: Four Seasons Hotel & Residences – Boston (One Dalton Street)
There has been a flurry of excitement this year surrounding the residential towers that broke ground across Boston. Whether it’s the recently topped-out AVA Theater District, or the widely-celebrated rise of Millennium Tower downtown, the pace of new construction continues to elevate Boston to dizzying heights. However, there is still one more condominium building set to literally rise above them all: One Dalton.
Carpenter & Co.’s One Dalton will tower 60 floors and reach more than 700 feet in height following completion. This will be Boston’s first tower in more than 40 years to eclipse the 700-foot mark and will make it one of the city’s three tallest towers upon completion. And with the announcement that Four Seasons Hotel & Residences will occupy the Henry Cobb-designed One Dalton, Boston will join the ranks of an incredibly short list of world-class cities that feature two Four Seasons hotels. This announcement not only reaffirms the forward momentum of Boston’s real estate market, but also cements Back Bay as Boston’s true center of gravity.
One Dalton is officially part of the Christian Science Center property and will rise on its northern end across the street from the Sheraton Back Bay. Across the street Pritzker Realty Group recently broke ground on 30 Dalton Street Residences, a rental building set to rise 26 stories and add several hundred luxury apartments to the neighborhood. Between these two towers and 888 Boylston breaking ground around the corner, there will be plenty of activity on the horizon in Boston’s Back Bay the next couple years.
