“Henry Cobb’s Last Tower Is Completed, in Boston”

Legendary architect the late Henry Cobb, of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, made a lasting impact on Boston’s skyline, designing some of its tallest architectural marvels. Rising 724 feet, One Dalton is the tallest residential building in Boston, just 48 feet shy of the city’s tallest structure, 200 Clarendon. In his memoir, Cobb wrote about the need to “give voice in architecture to the rich diversities of occupancy, activity, and culture that bring a city to life–diversities that ought to be celebrated in our buildings, not suppressed behind masks of uniformity.” Rather than standing apart, One Dalton participates in the city as its slender form takes its place within the urban ensemble of Boston’s public life.
