The last Henry Cobb-designed building completed during his lifetime, One Dalton is the tallest residential building in Boston. Home to an award-winning, AAA Diamond-designated Four Seasons hotel and luxury residential condominiums, the tower was named as the best tall building worldwide in its height category by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), the world’s leading nonprofit organization that explores how increased urban density and vertical growth can support more sustainable cities. The 61-story One Dalton is the first and only building in Boston to be named a global winner by CTBUH.
The 742 feet One Dalton was designed by the architect Henry N. Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and Gary Johnson of CambridgeSeven. It’s the first Boston building to exceed a height of 700 feet in nearly 50 years since the John Hancock Tower (200 Clarendon Street). Four Seasons hotel is located on its lower floors and luxury residential condominiums are on the floors above. One Dalton has a private arrival and lobby and 20,000 square feet of amenities, including an exclusive 50th private residents lounge, 50/50, designed by the internationally acclaimed Thierry Despont.
When we won the competition to build One Dalton, I knew it would be an incredible opportunity to add something spectacular to Boston’s skyline. I set out to assemble the dream team, led by Harry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and Gary Johnson of CambridgeSeven. It was a challenging site, and their combined creativity led to a unique triangular facade that seamlessly blends into the context of its historic surroundings. This magnificent award is a much-appreciated confirmation by their peers of the singular beauty of One Dalton’s design. – Richard Friedman, CEO and President of Carpenter & Company, the developer of One Dalton
The building’s shape resembles soft triangle and its floor-to-ceiling windows boast views of the Charles River, Cambridge, Boston Harbor, Kenmore Square, Fenway, and the scenic landscape of western Massachusetts.
This award is, indeed, a celebration of the original design premise to create a landmark building that would not only complement the Boston skyline, but also provide a welcoming pedestrian experience at street level. On behalf of the entire design team, we’re honored that One Dalton has been recognized for its contribution to the urban environment. – Gary Johnson, President & CEO of CambridgeSeven.
