Toll Bros. plans to nearly double the height of its planned Jewelers Row condo tower project that entails the demolition of five buildings on the storied Center City shopping street.
Toll has filed an amendment to its zoning application that would allow construction of a 29-story tower with 109 condo units, Tim Spreitzer, a spokesman for the Horsham-based developer's 's City Living division, said in an e-mail on Monday.
Previous plans called for a 16-story tower with 80 units.
The revised plan's denser development "is permitted within the current zoning for the site, as well as it being in character for other developments within the Washington Square area," Spreitzer said. The plan for the larger tower was first reported by the Philadelphia Business Journal
