Four Seasons Tower Breaks Ground Tonight In Back Bay

Courtesy of the Banker & Trademan

A groundbreaking ceremony for the 61-story Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences, which would become Boston's tallest residential building, is scheduled for Wednesday night in Back Bay.

Cambridge-based Carpenter & Co. is building the mixed-use project between Christian Science Plaza and the Prudential Center. The company received final approval from the Boston Redevelopment Authority in September 2013 for the project, which will include 211 hotel rooms on the lower floors, 180 high-rise condos, retail shops, restaurants and a 26-story apartment tower developed by Pritzker Realty Group of Chicago. Carpenter & Co. bought the hotel and condo development site at 1 Dalton St. in December for $65.6 million.

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, Four Seasons Hotels CEO Allen Smith and Carpenter & Co. CEO Richard Friedman are scheduled to attend the 6 p.m. ceremony. High-intensity lights will be beamed into the sky to simulate the height of the tower, the tallest building constructed in New England since the John Hancock Tower.

The project is being designed by Harry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed, along with Gary Johnson of Cambridge 7 Assoc.
