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.
