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. Toll Brothers CEO Douglas Yearly describes New York City as its "best market by far," due to high demand and customers who are willing to pay a premium for a tiny condo unit. Earlier this year, Toll Brothers City Living bought two new prime sites in Manhattan and another in Downtown Bethesda, Maryland. Going forward, Toll Brothers expects to continue constructing homes in prime locations to take advantage of the housing demand and high prices. With this strategy, Toll Brothers may be on the way to another year of strong results.
