Michael Dell Buys One Dalton Penthouse in Boston’s Most Expensive Condo Sale

 

Dell

Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell Technologies, is currently in contract for one of the three penthouse residences in Back Bay’s One Dalton residential tower.

One Dalton, which is expected to wrap up construction by the final quarter of 2018, has already sold several of its luxury condos. At a height of 742 feet, One Dalton will be the third largest tower to pierce the Boston skyline; with only the Prudential and John Hancock Towers soaring above at heights of 750 feet and 790 feet, respectively.

While it is not yet known how much Dell is expected to pay for the penthouse, there is currently another for sale at $40 million. The three penthouses will occupy the 60th and 61st floors of the building. In June of 2016, investment fund manager John Grayken shattered records with the most expensive condominium sale in Boston history at $35 million in Millennium Tower. The penthouse won’t be Dell’s first big purchase in the city. He bought his 4,110 square-foot Millennium Tower penthouse for $10.9 million in the last quarter of 2016, following a $60 billion deal by Dell Technologies acquiring Hopkinton’s EMC Corp.

Dell’s penthouse will be approximately 7,300 square-feet in size across two stories, in addition to a 570 square-foot outdoor terrace. One Dalton residents will also have access to a private residents’ club on the 50th floor, a state-of-the-art spa, restaurant, golf simulator and indoor lap pool. As of November 2017, the building has reached nearly half of its full height and is expected to top off in early 2018. Keep up to date on One Dalton’s construction via Bushari’s Crane Watch.

If you’d like to take a peak inside some of these residences, we have mapped out the most expensive Boston homes sold in 2015.

Copley Place Tower Given the Go-Ahead

The Boston Redevelopment Authority last night approved several projects with the aim of fulfilling Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s plan to greatly expand the city’s housing inventory by 2030. Among the projects approved by the BRA’s Board of Directors was a revised plan for the expansion of Copley Place, which includes a new skyscraper that will deliver 542 new residential units to the heart of the city.

The residential and retail expansion of Copley has been on the table since 2006, but the project has been held back due to various issues, most recently that overhangs from the building were encroaching into “non-approved spaces.” With last night’s approval, however, those issues have been resolved and Simon Property Group, the project’s developer, can move forward with their $500 million construction.

According to the project summary, the forthcoming Copley Place Tower will rise to heights of 569 feet and plans to “successfully meet the needs of Boston and its residents.” Simon Property Group and their development advisers have carefully studied Boston’s evolving housing market.

The developers want to ensure that their project will improve the lives of all Bostonians and not just residents of the tower. Plans call for “carefully executed design strategies” with the goal of improving the location’s overall pedestrian experience and aesthetic. Some of the expected benefits include improved public transit and a reduction in the number of commuters in single-use vehicles, as well as the creation of 1,477 construction jobs and approximately 250 permanent jobs.

The residential tower at Copley Place will follow the likes of the Millennium Tower and One Dalton as the most recent additions to Boston’s quickly transforming skyline.
