Whoa: Here’s what that huge Jewelers Row condo tower will look like

The Toll Bros. designs were first seen Tuesday night.

After months of controversy and an ongoing preservation battle, we finally have a sense of what the Jewelers Row condo tower will look like.

Yesterday, Toll Brothers dropped renderings of their proposed 29-story condo project. As you may recall, they initially proposed a 16-story tower, but later requested the added height.

Mayor Jim Kenney had urged the developers to preserve the façades, and but the firm ultimately will not be.

“At the end of the day keeping the current facades just isn’t possible because they just aren’t appropriate for the tower,” Brian Emmons, VP of Toll Brothers’ City Living Division, told PlanPhilly. “They have different heights, different window elevations, and those two things combined really make problems for handicapped accessibility and for elevators.”

This is what the tower would look like, from varying angles.
