Final Sections of Glass Facade Install Underway on Penthouse Levels of One Dalton
With a spring opening fast approaching, the final pieces of One Dalton's glass facade are being put in place. These last sections will enclose the duplex penthouse homes on the building's 60 & 61st floors. One Dalton will be the tallest residential tower in New England at 740 feet with the upper floors containing 180 private luxury condos. Underneath will be a Four Seasons luxury hotel with 215 rooms.
At the base of the tower, work is also being completed on the building's grand entrances, one for the hotel and one for residences.
Both residents and guests of the hotel will have access to numerous amenities including a fitness center, spa, and indoor pool. Construction is set to be complete in April.
One Dalton has been rising to its full height for the past several years, changing the face of the Boston skyline. Now BLDUP has been given a sneak peek inside the luxurious $750 million project and we were not disappointed.
First stop the construction elevator to the 61st floor. At 740 feet, One Dalton will be the tallest residential tower in New England. The top floor along with the 60th below will be home to three ultra-luxurious Penthouse Estates. The 360-degree views, even on a cloudy day are nothing short of amazing. You’ve got Fenway Park, The Charles River, Cambridge, Downtown, and you could practically reach out and touch the Prudential Center. On a clear day, I’m told you can see the Berkshires.

Along with the views, the Penthouse Estates will each feature Blue de Savoie polished marble countertops and backsplashes paired with SieMatic cabinets, bathrooms featuring heated glazed marble floors and Dornbracht fixtures and a double-height terrace complete with outdoor fireplaces. There is also a service corridor neatly tucked into the back of each unit that will allow the hotel staff to deliver packages, dry cleaning, or room service unnoticed. Two of these homes are already sold, with the third remaining available at $40 million. Debbie Collins, Director of Sales for Carpenter & Company tells BLDUP the residences at One Dalton are the fastest selling residential development in Four Seasons history. And this is without advertising or marketing. The developers at Carpenter and Company, have run a whisper campaign to date. This word of mouth coupled with the Four Seasons brand has brought in buyers from throughout Boston and beyond.
Floors 26 to 61 of the tower are residential space with no more than 6 units on a given floor. There will be 6 elevators total allowing for easy access to these sky-high condos. The residents will have access to all the hotel amenities below along with the 50/50 Club, a private residents only space on the 50th floor. The development team is converting what would have been a $12 million condo into additional amenity space for the elite homeowners.
After taking in the views, we venture down to the lower floors to check in on the hotel portion of the building. Here finishes are being installed and a sophisticated blend of textiles and textures gives the hotel the opulent feel you would expect from a five-star resort. Every attention has been paid to detail from the millwork on the closets to the door handles that are shaped to look like the building.

There will be 215 hotel rooms in total in this prime location between Back Bay and the South End.
A corner suite featuring floor to ceiling windows
A spacious custom millwork closet
A stylish black vanity featured in the hotel bathrooms.
Next, we make a stop on the 7th floor, the entire space dedicated to Health and Wellness. There will be a spa, fitness center, and 65 ft curved lap pool. Unfortunately, the pool was covered during our visit but you could still see the beautifully tiled walls and comfortable design of the space. We also saw what will be the fitness space, as with the rest of the building it features numerous large windows for an airy, open feel. We were then able to see what will be one of the luxurious ballroom spaces. Even through the construction, you can see how impressive these spaces will be when complete.
The 65-foot curved lap pool will offer guests and homeowners a year-round retreat.
A pre-function space leading to an opulent ballroom.
Heading downstairs again, we hit the 2nd floor, food, and beverage, which will feature Zuma, Izakaya-style Japanese dining. Zuma’s culinary concept features a main kitchen, sushi counter and robata grill offering modern, sophisticated Japanese cuisine.
As we exit past the site of the upcoming 5,000sf park, I learn what might be my favorite little gem of information about the property, all the sidewalks surrounding the project will be heated. It seems the development and design teams really have thought of everything. With an expected opening in just several months, April 2019, we can’t wait to see One Dalton complete.
One of what will be two grand entrances to One Dalton (separate for the hotel & residences).
Install of the glass facade for the 61 story, 740-foot tower is nearing its apex at One Dalton. The massive new Four Seasons Hotel and Residences will include 180 luxury condominiums and a 215 room hotel. Building amenities will include a lap pool, fitness center, salon, and 50th-floor residents lounge. There will also be a new 5,000 square foot park built at the tower's base.

Michael Dell scoops up second Boston penthouse at 61-story One Dalton tower
Dell Technologies Chairman & CEO Michael Dell has reportedly entered a contract to acquire one of three $40 million penthouse residences atop the 61-story One Dalton tower under construction in the Back Bay, which, following Dell’s acquisition of a Millennium Tower penthouse residence last year, would make Dell the owner of penthouses at both of Boston’s, and New England’s, tallest residential towers. Per a Wall Street Journal report, Dell’s penthouse will be approximately 7,300 square feet in size across two stories, with a 570-square-foot outdoor terrace.
Listed for sale at $40 million each, One Dalton’s penthouses are expected to be Boston’s most expensive ever sold, nearly 15% higher than the $35 million, 13,000-square-foot Millennium Tower penthouse acquired by billionaire John Grayken in 2016. Sales of condominiums at One Dalton have not yet closed. Dell purchased his 4,110-square-foot Millennium Tower penthouse for $10.9 million, closing on the residence in December 2016. Dell Technologies acquired Hopkinton, MA-based EMC Corporation for $60 billion in Fall 2016.
One Dalton will be Boston’s third-tallest building at 740 feet and 61 stories tall, featuring 180 private luxury condominium residences above a 215-room Four Seasons luxury hotel.

Treviicos constructs slurry wall foundation of The Benjamin & VIA, newly opened Seaport District landmark development
Locally-based ground improvement expert Treviicos played an instrumental part in the recent completion of The Benjamin & VIA, two exclusive mixed-use towers in Boston's Seaport District featuring 832 modern apartment residences and 250,000 square feet of retail, constructing the building’s below-grade slurry wall foundation. Treviicos constructed a 1,552-foot-long, 86,500-square-foot reinforced concrete slurry wall along The Benjamin & VIA’s perimeter, which serves as the development’s foundation wall. The Benjamin & VIA’s location just steps from Boston Harbor presented significant geotechnical challenges, including persistent groundwater presence and unstable soil conditions, that Treviicos was able to expertly navigate, constructing a strong, 30-foot-thick wall using over 800 tons of steel, 8,800 cubic yards of concrete and 1,000 embedded steel plates connected with beams and girders in order to provide structural support.
The Benjamin & VIA’s slurry wall consists of 72 concrete panels and has an average depth of 55 feet, enclosing three below-grade parking levels containing 775 vehicle spaces that are now open to both building residents and the public. Apartment move-ins at The Benjamin & VIA began this summer, and multiple retailers will open this Fall, starting with an Equinox fitness center due to open October 17th. The latest information about The Benjamin & VIA apartments and retail is posted above. The following are photographs of Treviicos at work at The Benjamin & VIA:

The Benjamin apartment tower at One Seaport Square topped off last week on Wednesday, March 23rd. A ceremony was held Wednesday in which the frame’s final beam, adorned with a pine tree, was lifted to the very top of the 22-story building:
Glass is being installed along The Benjamin’s facade fronting Northern Avenue. Glass installation has reached the building’s fourth story:
Accordingly, fireproofing and moisture/mold-resistant sheathing are actively being installed along The Benjamin’s lower floors:
Installation of balconies along The Benjamin’s facade has progressed significantly. Residents will enjoy sweeping views of the Boston skyline and Boston Harbor:
The tower crane is down at 30 Dalton as the start of leasing nears. The building's facade is nearly complete; work continues on interior spaces. Leasing at 30 Dalton, coordinated by Bozzuto, will commence in summer 2016.
30 Dalton promises to be a great place to live. The building will feature distinctive views of the Boston skyline and is located convenient to the Back Bay's many dining and entertainment options. 30 Dalton is also located a short walk to office space at 888 Boylston Street and other office towers. 30 Dalton is perfectly positioned for a walkable urban lifestyle!
600 Harrison Avenue is topped off, and windows are installed along much of the building’s frame. Exterior finishes will follow shortly; the frame is being coated with Carlisle 705FR-A fire proofing (silver) over National Gypsum moisture and mold-resistant sheathing (purple). Sheathing has been nearly fully installed. It appears exterior finishes are about to be installed at the Albany Street end of the building, where installation of the cladding fastening system (brown panels and red-topped fasteners) over the fire proofing has begun!
600 Harrison Avenue’s distinctive frame is becoming a significant feature along rapidly-developing Harrison Avenue in Boston’s South End. We are looking forward to watching installation of exterior finishes! 600 Harrison Avenue will contain 160 apartments and approximately 3,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

600 Harrison nears top-off, installation of fire proofing and windows begins
600 Harrison Avenue is nearly topped off. Installation of fire proofing is beginning at the Albany Street end of the building as moisture and mold-resistant sheathing is installed along the sides; sheathing has been installed underneath all fire proofing. Installation of windows is beginning along the bottom of the building following installation of fire proofing.
One Seaport Square's frame is well on its way to completion. Per a recent update by John Hynes, Boston Global Investors' Managing Director, The Benjamin will top off within the next three weeks. VIA will follow shortly afterwards, topping off within the next seven weeks.
Installation of sheathing begins at 600 Harrison Avenue
600 Harrison Avenue's frame has risen significantly. The final building will be six stories tall. The building’s distinctive architecture is taking shape. Installation of moisture and mold-resistant sheathing has begun along the bottom of the building.

Initial foundation work is underway at One Dalton. Construction fencing has been installed, and slurry wall pre-trenching is underway. Foundation excavation and slurry wall construction will soon commence.
Significant progress has been made on 600 Harrison Avenue by Consigli Construction! The building continues to rise; Utile’s design calls for 600 Harrison Avenue to be six stories tall. On our recent site visit, we were thoroughly impressed by the hard work and attention to detail actively being put into 600 Harrison Avenue’s construction by the Consigli team. Keep up the great work! We look forward to continuing to watch Consigli build what is sure to be a transformative development project for the SoWA District.
