The glassy tower currently taking shape at 1 Dalton Street is said to be a structure that redefines urban living in the Boston area. The folks from hospitality giant Four Seasons are responsible for the half-hotel, half-luxury condominium building that will eventually soar at 742 feet, making it the tallest residential tower in New England, and the third tallest building in Boston overall. The thoughtful design of these Boston condos for sale can be attributed to the renowned Henry Cobb of The Hancock’s fame. His new design touts sleek, modern interiors and 11-foot ceilings. Perhaps most impressive are the floor-to-ceiling windows which make way for sweeping views of the surrounding Boston area and nearby waterways.
The surrounding Back Bay and nearby Columbus neighborhoods are another reason so many Boston homebuyers are turning their eyes toward One Dalton. This diverse Boston area is close to Downtown, easily accessible by public transit and offers a spectacular variety of local and international restaurants to appease even the most adventurous foodies. Summer Shack is a hotspot for locals who frequent the raw bar for the city’s freshest seafood in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. International eateries like Pho Basil and Lucy’s Ethiopian Café are great options for those who want to sample the best in Southeast Asian and African cuisines. Lucy’s is also known for it’s bold coffee selection. For special occasions, try The Capital Grille, a spot offering succulent filet minions and specialty items like the decadent lobster mac and cheese.
For those who prefer an All-American snack, there’s no better place to enjoy lunch than at the legendary Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. The ballpark is located just a short distance from home, making it a perfect venue to spend a sunny springtime or summer afternoon at a game.
Fashionistas and architecture enthusiasts will love the stretch of boutique shops and vintage homes on Newbury Street, Boylston Street and Commonwealth Avenue. Other historic buildings include the Boston Public Library and the Trinity Church, both of which are considered to be among Boston’s most eye-catching pieces of architecture. Art fans will also find Boston to be a veritable feast for the eyes, with its numerous curated murals and sculptures covering the city’s streets and public parks such as the Oneida Football Tablet commemorating the country’s first organized football games, which took place on the Boston Common.
