When we think of Toll Bros., we think of condos. Projects from this developer in Philadelphia have included Naval Square, Stamper Square, 2400 South, and a now under construction tower on Jewelers’ Row.

“I’ve wrestled a lot with whether what we’re doing is enough,” writes Tess Hart, cofounder of the Callowhill-based social enterprise that employs fair chance hiring practices.

Back then, we told you that developers were planning six triplexes and a duplex for a total of 17 units, but the project was still awaiting ZBA approval so it wasn’t a guarantee that it would be happening. As you can see, they got their variance and construction has finally progressed over the course of this year.
