Nitsch Engineering is providing civil engineering and site permitting services for a new mixed-use development at the intersection of Dalton and Belvidere Streets, adjacent to the Christian Science Plaza. The project includes a new 61-story high-rise tower that will house a Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences at One Dalton Street; a 26-story residential tower with below-grade parking; and a new urban park. All together, the project will include 215 hotel rooms, 398 residences, and ground-floor retail.
We designed the site utilities (water, sewer, and drainage) and provided the curb and site layout design. We worked closely with the landscape architect to create the site layout and grading plans. Because the project falls within the Groundwater Overlay District, Nitsch Engineering worked closely with the plumbing engineer and geotechnical engineer to design complex groundwater recharge systems on all three sites. Nitsch Engineering provided permitting assistance for the Boston Redevelopment Authority process, including preparing the utility section of the Project Notification Form (PNF), Environmental Notification Form (ENF), Draft Project Impact Report (DPIR), and Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for Article 80 Large Project Review. We provided lead permitting coordination the Public Improvement Commission, Boston Water and Sewer Commission, Department of Environmental Protection, and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits.
Nitsch Engineering is currently providing construction administration services; construction on the residential tower at 30 Dalton is underway, while the new park and Four Seasons Hotel/residences at One Dalton are just entering construction.
