New England's tallest tower in forty years has now topped off in Boston, the 61-storey, 226-metre One Dalton having become a signature piece of the downtown skyline. Located in Boston's Back Bay, the Carpenter & Company-built residential tower designed jointly by Cambridge Seven Associates and Harry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, has brought a touch of glass to the historic core of the New England capital.

Soon to be home to Boston's second Four Seasons Hotel, the mixed-use tower will place guests within the bottom half of the tower, a 24th-storey amenities level to serve as a natural divide between the hotel below and the residential suites above. The upper floor residential suites will be Four Seasons branded, with distinct additional amenity spaces for residents located on both the 7th and 50th floors - for a grand total of 20,000 square feet, including a 65-ft lap pool, kitchen, and outdoor terrace.

In total, the tower will be have space for 160 residential suites and 215 hotel rooms, the structure to meet the street with a large, multi-storey podium base. The bottom levels of the tower will thereby house the main entries for both the hotel and residence portions of the development, along with an array of other related services, including a concierge and valet.

Once complete, One Dalton will provide guests and residents alike with panoramic views of the Boston skyline, Atlantic Ocean, and nearby Cape Cod. The tallest tower of its kind to be built in the region for more than a generation, One Dalton represents a positive development for Boston and New England as a whole.
