One Canal is located in the Bulfinch Triangle neighborhood, near Boston Harbor, where The Middlesex Canal once bisected the town. The 12-story mixed-use building houses 320 luxury apartments, a 159-space above ground parking garage and 21,000 square feet of retail space. One Canal’s lobby water feature is a tribute to the building’s historic ties to the Harbor.

One Canal Lobby Water Feature

The water feature is a self-contained Linear Basin Kit by Delta Fountains. The 18-foot stainless steel Linear Basin holds nine Foam Jet Nozzles; four Nominal Linear White LED Submersible Lights; a distribution manifold; an automatic water make-up assembly; and submersible pumps. The basin was shipped to the site plumbed and ready to be clad by granite.

Once the granite was in place, a plaque depicting the site’s historical reference was placed along the outside, and a painting of the original Canal was hung above the feature. Geometric stone benches allow visitors to rest near the feature.
