Toll Brothers Inc Research Report

Despite being widely known as a luxury residential home builder in suburban communities, Toll Brothers is going with the trend and is now starting to develop condominiums in big cities. One of its recent projects include a 40-story glass skyscraper located in lower Manhattan.

Going forward, Toll Brothers expects to continue constructing homes in prime locations to take advantage of the housing demand and high prices.
