One Dalton Place, the latest skyscraper sprouting in Back Bay, promises to “stand 61 stories high in the Boston skyline” and will be “New England’s tallest and most luxurious residential building.”

The bottom 24 floors of One Dalton will be a 215-room Four Seasons hotel. Rising from the 25th floor will be 160 luxury condominiums, with an average cost per unit of $6 million. The penthouse will go on the market for a Boston record-breaking $40 million.

The future inhabitants of One Dalton will, Boston Magazine gushes, “enjoy a slew of ultra-luxe building amenities, too. The golf simulation room may come in handy on rainy days, not to mention the private theater, salon, health club, and spa.”

One Dalton is only the latest “swanktuary” constructed over the last decade. It joins Millennium Place and Millennium Tower, the two Ritz Carlton residences on Avery Street, and Twenty-Two Liberty place, together adding over 1,100 units of housing for the global 1 percent.
