Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences One Dalton Street, Boston, a new five-star hotel and luxury condominium in the city’s historic Back Bay neighborhood, is now complete and stands as the tallest residential building in New England, and the tallest building constructed in Boston in over 40 years.
Open to hotel guests and residents, One Dalton has become a transformative presence on the Boston skyline, and the preeminent address in the city – a lasting legacy of the late architect Henry N. Cobb, a Boston native and founding partner with of the distinguished Pei Cobb Freed architecture firm, who designed the building before passing away last spring at the age of 93.
The 160 private residences, occupying the top floors of the 61-story tower, have resonated deeply with buyers, breaking numerous records for Boston residential real estate. In 2020 alone, 7 of Boston’s top 10 most expensive sold homes were located at One Dalton, and 14 of the top 25. The private residences atop the 215-room five-star Four Seasons Hotel enjoy the full services and amenities of this new Boston flagship from the world’s leading hospitality brand.
Residents enjoy a private porte-cochere entrance and staffed lobby designed by Thierry Despont, the French-born, Harvard-educated architect and interior designer known for his work on iconic landmarks including the Ritz Paris, Woolworth Building and Statue of Liberty. Despont also designed a private residents’ club on the building’s 50th floor, known as 50/50, commanding unobstructed views of the city, Charles River, Boston Harbor and out to the Berkshire Mountains and shores of Cape Cod.
Additionally, more than 20,000 square feet of amenities space managed by Four Seasons include an indoor 65-foot lap pool, fitness center designed by The Wright Fit, signature spa with massage and treatment rooms, yoga and Pilates studios, golf simulator room with wet bar, theater and performance room, meeting facilities and a pet washing and grooming station.
