Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

From tonight. This is clearly growing again and will soon eclipse most of its neighbors.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

^The mechanical floor visible in BeeLine's pics (windows openings filled in with concrete just below the yellow barriers) is the 24th floor. Below that is the hotel portion and above it is the residential portion.

From there on up there will be a different structural cross-section and facade pattern from below.

It's only the 21st floor if you are actually counting floor plates and not skipping anything. By counting windows this will be 58 windows high, which includes the 2 at the very top where the Four Seasons logo is.

Yup, and on that floor there are going to be mech screens as well between each pillar. Then it has the slices that continue up to the roof. Gonna be cool to see how those cuts look once the cladding reaches that point. Also hopefully the screens aren't too noticeable or the color at least matches up well.

Looking at this render and then the construction pics it almost seems like the concrete pillars are going to be shaped different to allow these cuts in the facade. In the first half of the tower the glass is right on top of the pillars and will be on the top portion as well so it seems these cuts will be in the concrete. Another thing to notice in the render is the first mech floor is just covered with glass you can see the concrete behind the glass and then the vents are the next floor up which is just starting to be revealed in the pics above. It also appears that you can see a diagonal part of the structure through one of the windows under the first vent on the left.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Today coming down the pike for all intents and purposes its broken the plateau. I saw this for much longer and from farther and closer distances much more than I have yet. It only disappears right before you get into the tunnel. Its much more visible and prominent now and from this point out is where the fun begins. Its finally on boys.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Thanks for the nice pics!

Interestingly, I actually think this one is currently a bit under the radar as most of us have suffered from "truss belt fatigue" while this seemingly stood still for a couple of months. However, it's clearly picking up steam again. Soon, there will be another crane jump and the tower will bust through the surrounding plateau. Even Odurandina will be excited about this one by February! It's still disappointing that it took 3 whole years to get to this point since they started working on it, but the wait will definitely be worth it.

This has now started its emergence:
- from about South Bay, the concrete pumping equipment has eclipsed the roof line of 177 Huntington (Christian Science Tower).
- from Memorial Drive in the stretch east of the Harvard Bridge, the core is visible above the roof line of the Sheraton.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Better to take the time to do the job right, I think.

I'm really pleased with how this is coming together. Also of note- the row of columns between the forms and the truss floors are the first with the diagonal chamfer. It's rather subtle, but absolutely noticeable from up close.

!!!

I was looking at the photo below when it dawned on me that the chamfered columns may be a reference to the colonnade building. If that's the case... hats off.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

The first mech floor is all glass, the second has the exhaust vents between each column, then above that is where the facade changes to fit the chamfered columns adding the cuts rising up the facade at each column. You can see the newly exposed columns have this chamfering.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Are they able to keep pouring floors in the extreme cold temperatures we are currently experiencing? If not there won't be much, if any, visible progress on many of these projects over the next couple of weeks.
