This has been a long time coming and now it’s here: The 742-foot Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences One Dalton Street—a.k.a. One Dalton—is scheduled to officially top off on August 7.

The 61-story spire is the tallest new tower in Boston since 200 Clarendon opened in 1976. It’s also the city’s third-tallest building.

And, due to myriad reasons that include construction costs, a dearth of sites, and shadows, One Dalton will likely be the last Boston tower—the last New England tower—of more than 700 feet for a long, long while.

One Dalton is due to include 215 Four Seasons hotel rooms that the international hospitality firm will manage and 160 luxury condos (which Four Seasons will also service).

The architect is a collaboration between Cambridge Seven Associates and Henry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed. Cobb, incidentally, designed 200 Clarendon (formerly known as the Hancock). Carpenter & Company is the developer and Suffolk Construction the contractor.
