  • Toll Brothers City Living is Becoming Formidable By Justin Spees | December 13, 2011

    If you live in the low-rise at 303 East 33rd St., or a handful of other luxury condo buildings in the city, you might have heard of Toll Brothers. Toll Brothers is a high-end building construction company based in Pennsylvania. It opened a New York office in Brooklyn seven years ago, and has spent that time in steady expansion.  So far it’s developed 8 residential projects in the city.

Unsurprisingly, Toll Brothers City Living got off to a rough start with Northside Piers, and later that year Robert I.
