    The topping off of the tallest new building in Boston in 40 years started out 742 feet below, at ground level. There construction workers, members of the development team, and local officials gathered to celebrate a milestone in the construction of the Four Seasons One Dalton in the Back Bay Tuesday. They then rode up construction elevators for a look around.

    When the 61-story hotel-and-condominium building is finished next year, the penthouses — with stratospheric prices of $40 million — will be the highest place you can live in all of Boston.

    If that’s your bag, and your price range, move fast, though. A spokeswoman for developer Carpenter & Co. said a number of units are already under contract, and the company expects all 160 condos to be sold by the time the building opens.
