Following three years of construction work, the 61-story, 740-foot One Dalton tower has officially topped off. Formally known as The Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences, One Dalton Street, the tower is officially the tallest residential building in New England. When compared to other Boston towers, only the Prudential and Hancock buildings have surpassed its height.
The skyscraper will include 211 hotel rooms on the first 23 floors, and 180 luxury condos on floors 25 through 61. The hotel rooms and luxury residences will share a private health club, spa, and 70-foot-long swimming pool. Condo owners will have access to a private restaurant and club on the 50th floor.
A number of units have already gone under contract, with Michael Dell reported to have purchased one of the three penthouses for a record-breaking $40 million. A similar penthouse is currently on the market for the same price.
Mayor Walsh has touted the new high-rise building as a job creator and funder of affordable housing. "Often times, people talk about luxury buildings, saying that we're not building for the poor," Walsh contends during the topping off ceremony. "But what this building actually does it create opportunities and revenue for middle-class and low-income housing." One Dalton's developers are building a total of 28 affordable housing units in Roxbury to satisfy the city's Inclusionary Development Policy.
One Dalton will open in early 2019 as the tallest residential building in New England.
