The Boston skyline has evolved dramatically since 2010, and as this decade comes to a close, one of Knightsbridge Park’s projects is making its mark. Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences, One Dalton Street (or “One Dalton” for short) opened in May and offers a mix of 160 ultraluxury residences and 215 hotel rooms. This kind of hybrid hospitality residence is increasingly popular and allows developers to cater to travelers as well as city dwellers who seek five-star service in a permanent residence. Perched in the city’s historic Back Bay neighborhood, One Dalton provides the best of both worlds. And the sleek glass tower adds a dose of contemporary style to the area, which is known for its charming red-brick row houses.
According to Curbed Boston, it’s one of the top five new buildings of 2019 and one of the “most impactful” projects of the 2010s. What makes it so special? After topping out in 2018, it became the tallest primarily residential tower in New England, at 61 stories and 742 feet. Developed by Carpenter & Company, it was designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners in collaboration with Cambridge Seven Associates. It might also shatter a local record. Speaking with Bloomberg News, Carpenter & Company chief executive Richard Friedman indicated that condo sales at One Dalton ranged from “$2.5 million to $40 million.” If that’s the case, it will exceed the record for a Boston condo sale by $5 million. The hotel’s restaurant, which is part of the Zuma brand, features 70 different kinds of sake and sounds like the perfect place to cheer a record-breaking sale with a toast.
