A luxury condo high-rise being built in Boston is having Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) fiber-to-the-unit built in from the get-go to support multi-gigabit Internet, video and voice services.

The Four Seasons Private Residence One Dalton Street, in Boston's Back Bay, is partnering with Comcast's Xfinity Communities to offer its residents access to multi-gigabit-per-second Internet speeds through Xfinity's Advanced Communities Network (ACN). The 742-foot-tall building will feature 160 luxury condominiums and a 215-room five-star Four Seasons hotel upon completion in 2018.

"One Dalton represents the finest standard of living in Boston, from the unique design to the carefully planned residential services," said Richard Friedman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Carpenter & Co. "Technology is an integral part of everyday life and we chose Comcast as our solutions provider for its high-performance Internet services. We also want our residents to enjoy five-star amenities in the comfort of their home."

The condominiums at One Dalton will have fiber connections built into each unit, offering up to a 1 Gbps connection with the option to upgrade to 2 Gbps. It is the first such building in Boston to have Xfinity 2 Gbps fiber built into its infrastructure. Residents can customize their service packages by selecting Xfinity TV, Xfinity Voice, Xfinity WiFi and the X1 Platform.

"Located in Boston's prestigious Back Bay, One Dalton will redefine luxury living for the City with residents enjoying a service-rich lifestyle that was unheard of before," said Tracy Pitcher, senior vice president for Comcast's Greater Boston region. "Comcast is working closely with One Dalton to provide high-capacity technologies along with our exceptional customer service so residents can choose services for their units that are as remarkable as the building itself."
