30 Dalton is a 26-story apartment community located at the corner of Dalton and Belvidere Streets in Boston. Just minutes away from Fenway Park and the city’s premier shopping destinations, this thoughtfully designed space featuring open floor plans and incredible Boston skyline views is where creativity meets luxury.
The collaborating architects, Cambridge Seven Associates and Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, worked with Pritzker Realty Group to design 30 Dalton with a modern twist. The building boasts 218 luxury rental units with amenities that will satisfy any resident’s lifestyle. With its unique prismatic form and shallow curve, the innovative building needed a window treatment design to match its high-end feel in both style and function. In 2016, 30 Dalton selected Ver-Tex Shading Solutions as its preferred shade solutions provider.
Ver-Tex worked with Suffolk Construction to install more than 1,700 manual shades in the 30 Dalton’s apartment units. In addition to those manual shades, Ver-Tex installed 50 motorized shades and 10 motorized drapery tracks throughout the two 26th floor penthouse units, the resident community space, the library, and the leasing area. The large floor-to-ceiling windows in each unit called for a window treatment that would provide multiple benefits. The shades installed by Ver-Tex enhance privacy, filter light, and regulate temperature. The ability to adjust the motorized shades via remote control or smartphone app fits in with the modern luxurious atmosphere the building exudes.
By partnering with Ver-Tex to provide the latest in manual and motorized shading technology, 30 Dalton has ensured that each resident will enjoy a sophisticated, green design that is beautiful, practical, and convenient.
The greater Boston area is home to some of the highest ranking universities in the country, world-class hospitals, and cutting-edge tech companies, such as Microsoft. Since 1975, Microsoft has become a recognized brand name and industry leader in software services, devices, and solutions for people and businesses across the globe.
With 12 corporate and retail locations in the Boston area, Microsoft landed on building its newest technology center in Burlington, MA. This location will serve as a regional hub for approximately 300 of Microsoft’s New England sales, marketing, and services group to reach customers, partners, and developers throughout Northeast territory. The new Burlington office “places us in a centralized location close to Boston, but with easier access to all the surrounding states in our sales region,” said Microsoft General Manager, Robert Davy in a blog post about the move. When Microsoft made the move to its new Burlington office, the overall goal was to create a state-of-the-art facility with open working space for its sales and marketing team. Architects of Sasaki Associates designed a large open concept space encompassing 55,000 square feet. The building accommodates corporate offices, training rooms, and includes a cutting edge technology viewing experience.
