Bob Toll Exports the Touraine

We're not saying the word "Touraine" belongs to any one city, but when it comes to real estate, the name Touraine is associated with Philadelphia—which is also Bob Toll's stomping grounds. The Touraine Apartments at 15th and Spruce have been around for half a century, so it's a good bet the locally based Toll Bros. are familiar with it. The company's newest Manhattan apartment building is also called the Touraine, which is because, according to the building's reps, "Bob Toll liked it." Shoot. Can't we just have one thing for ourselves? [Curbed NY]
