Boston’s Tallest Residential Tower Reaches Full Height
- Aug 08, 2018
Carpenter & Co. has topped off One Dalton, the Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences apartment tower in Boston. The property has reached its full height at 742 feet, making One Dalton the tallest residential building in Boston and New England.
The 61-story One Dalton comprises 160 private units atop the 215-key Four Seasons hotel. First move-ins are scheduled for early 2019. Pei Cobb Freed & Partners served as the head architecture team along with Cambridge Seven Associates. Thierry Despont spearheaded the Private Residences lobby and the 50th floor club lounge and Michael Van Valkenburgh served as the landscape architect and created a 5,000-square-foot public park that connects the building to the surrounding neighborhood. Suffolk Construction built the tower. The skyscraper was inspired by Boston’s history, offering a soft triangle form, a sleek facade and architectural bay windows.
Shared amenity spaces
Interior apartment features include 11-foot cover ceilings, state-of-the-art fully equipped kitchens, indoor fireplaces and outdoor fireplaces and private balconies in select residences. Residents of One Dalton will have full access to the services and amenities at the hotel, such as laundry, housekeeping, turndown and catering services. In addition to the private lobby and 50th floor club lounge, residents will have access to more than 20,000 square feet of amenity space managed by Four Seasons, including:
- an indoor 65-foot lap pool
- a fitness center designed by The Wright Fit
- a signature spa with massage and treatment rooms
- yoga and Pilates studios
- a golf simulator room with wet bar
- a theater and performance room
- meeting facilities
- a Zuma Japanese restaurant
“One Dalton is the finest and most architecturally-significant skyscraper ever built in Boston, ushering in a new era of modern development and elevating the standard of luxury living in this city,” said Richard Friedman, president & CEO of Carpenter & Co., in a prepared statement. “Watching this unprecedented, architectural landmark soar into the sky has been especially thrilling, and we are pleased to have such a meaningful impact on the city and its skyline.”

These include Copley Mall, Newbury Street, the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum and Symphony Hall, the Prudential Center, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, the Charles River Esplanade and the Back Bay Fens.
