Toll Brother Develops New Market Development

Toll Brothers hopes to replace the large hole at 410 S. Front Street in Society hill with a 69-untit, 68 foot-tall gated condominium with 108 underground parking spaces.  Many projects have been previously proposed over the past several decades for this location but none have succeeded, including the controversial Stamper square hotel/condo development.

The building will be made of brick, stone, concrete, glass and metal.  The colors, and most of the materials, are similar to those used in historic Society Hill.  The design however is a modern take on brick construction.

Civic support is now needed to help convince the Zoning Board of Adjustment to grant variances for height and the number of stories.  While Stamper Square had received a change in zoning classification to C4 commercial, the change has expired. Toll a publicly traded company, did not need financing to purchase the property, which it bought last year.  The developer hope to start construction in 2013 and finish about 18 months later.
