Four Seasons Private Residences One Dalton Street, Boston will be a 61-story residential tower that will house a hotel and luxury condominiums in Boston’s historic Back Bay. The building, known as Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences One Dalton Street, is being designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners (Henry N. Cobb and Roy Barris, lead designers) and Cambridge Seven Associates (Gary Johnson, lead designer), collaborating architects. It will be the tallest building to rise in Boston since the John Hancock Tower, also designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and completed in 1976.
The new $700 million tower is a project of Carpenter & Company, Inc., whose proposal was selected following a national competition to develop the site, which lies between Christian Science Plaza and the Prudential Center.
The development will consists of a 211-room hotel occupying the tower’s lower eighteen floors and 188 residential condominiums on thirty-six floors above. Shaped as a soft triangle in plan and sheathed in low-reflectance high-performance insulating glass, the building rises from a granite-and-glass podium containing the condominium lobby and the public rooms of the hotel. Glass-screened incisions in the tower’s surface animate the building volume while accommodating operable windows on the condominium floors, whose upper levels feature balconies.
