Toll gets new permit for Jewelers Row residential tower

Quote:
Home builder Toll Bros. has received a permit to combine six parcels on the Jewelers Row shopping street into a single property and to build a 24-story residential tower at the site.

The Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections granted the zoning permit to Horsham-based Toll last week, about five months after the company let an earlier permit for a 29-story condo building lapse by failing to provide the city agency with requested details about its proposal.

The new permit involves the consolidation of the properties at 702, 704, 706-08, 710 and 712-14 Sansom St., and of 128 S. Seventh St. into a single parcel, according to details posted on L&I’s website. All but 712-14 Sansom St.would be demolished under the plan, according to the permit details.

The tower replacing the demolished buildings would house 85 residential units and a single commercial space facing Sansom Street.

Under the permitting process, Toll still must present its proposal to the Philadelphia Civic Design Review board, which offers nonbinding suggestions concerning the city’s biggest development projects.

regardless of all the issues surrounding this possible building, this is a good example of why demo should not be allowed until all permits for the build have been issued and Toll has somehow demonstrated that it is ready to build. The last thing this area needs is for Toll to quickly do the demo before any more legal issues are bought up, only to change their mind about the timing or the goodness of the build, and leave the area with an empty lot (can anybody say 1911 Walnut St.)

That proposed office tower on 1528 Cherry St definitely comes to mind.

Were 712-714 part of the initial purchase? For some reason, I'm thinking not. Anyway, that is this Sidney O Rosen store. It's not being demo'd. Since they've announced there is only one commercial, that indicates the actual tower would not have any and it will all be lobby for resident use.

This is just a guess, but because of some public alleyways, that haven't been open for along time, Toll was having issues claiming their old lot size was large enough to allow the tower they were proposing. Maybe with the inclusion of 712-714 to the size of the lot those issues have gone away.
