Toll Brothers is Looking for Land in all the Right Places

Last updated on August 24th, 2022

When it comes to real estate, there is no more sound advice than “it’s all about location, location, location.” Community by community, Toll Brothers has established a reputation for building in some of the most sought-after locations in the country. From Orange County, CA, to New York City, buyers seek out our homes because they are built right where they want to be.

To find the quality land in the right location, we are always on the lookout for great land where we can develop our next luxury home community.

Often we are asked what we look for in a prospective land purchase. According to our land acquisition managers, it’s important to take the following considerations into account during the process:



It’s important to know how land can and cannot be used based on zoning approvals by the local municipality. Toll Brothers is looking to acquire land that is zoned for single-family (20+ lots), townhomes/carriage homes (30+ townhome/carriage home units), condo flats (50+ units), and active-adult communities, as well as rental housing or student housing in areas that accommodate luxury developments.


Acquisition of Existing Projects

Sometimes circumstances change for builders and developers, and there is a need for another to take the reins. Toll Brothers will buy approved projects, projects currently in the approvals process, and properties which require planning board approvals. With rare exception, Toll Brothers is not looking for properties which require a zone change to residential.



It helps to know how we purchase the properties on which we build. Toll Brothers purchases properties on a per lot or per unit basis (as opposed to per acre) and only closes after subdivision or site plan approvals have been obtained.


“Out-of-the-box” opportunities

Sometimes it takes a keen eye or creative thinking to see the potential in available land, but that can lead to some interesting and exciting projects. If you know of a golf course, gardening center, beach or yacht club that is going out of business, or a corporate headquarters or office complex that has closed down, Toll Brothers may be interested.

If you or someone you know owns a property that has the potential to be a Toll Brothers community, reach out to our land acquisition team for evaluation. We may just be the buyer you’ve been looking for. Email with your contact information and the region where the property is located and the appropriate regional land acquisition manager will contact you to discuss.

      Any chance the toll brothers has any plans on building communities in Tallahassee FL? There is no quality luxury homes in this area at the price the toll brothers homes go for. Please respond because I am looking to purchase a home within next year or 2. Possibly longer if toll brothers start building!!!

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hello Nikki, thank you for reading our Build Beautiful blog, we do not currently have plans to build in Tallahassee, but we do have some great communities in the Jacksonville area. To learn more, please visit our website.

      Hello TB Content Team,
      My wife and I presently own a TB home for 14 years (Golf Edge Estates) and truly love our home, however all of our kids have left the nest and we would like to downsize to an active Adult community. We have traveled to many TB adult communities throughout NJ and PA and we would like to stay in western Monmouth County where the commute to Newark or Philadelphia airports is only an hour, the Jersey Shore is 30 minutes away on I195 and with the NJTPK expansion of 6 lanes north and southbound western Monmouth County is a commuters delight. There is only 1 adult community in the area built by Hovanian and we would like to know if TB has any plans to build an adult community.
      Thank you,
      Matt and Debbie

      • Peter P says:

        Hi Matt, thanks for reaching out! We would love to help you downsize to a home that better fits your current lifestyle. Feel free to take a look at our current Active Living communities in Monmouth County:

        Regency at Allaire, in the Farmingdale/Howell area, is our next addition and will be selling soon. If you would like, we would be happy to reach out with additional information.

    3. Anitha says:

      Could you please share if you have any acquisitions or new constructions coming up in East Frisco. I would love to see an exclusive Toll Brothers neighborhood.

    4. Nino says:

      Does Toll Brothers still build “On your lot”?

      • Sam M says:

        Hello Nino, unfortunately, we do not currently offer a program where we build on land already purchased. We do, however, build luxury homes in communities nationwide that you can personalize. To see a list of communities we are currently building in, please visit our website.

    5. Violet M says:

      Hi we live in the Houston area and are interested in more modern/contemporary home plans like what you build in Arizona and Nevada. Could you build homes such as the Cascade or North in the Houston Area? We also own a 2.5 acrea lot in a residential community that we would be interested in building on but I see your response to another question that you do not build already purchased land.

    6. Yaya huang says:

      Hi, I love tb homes. Wonder if you have any plan to build near Denton, Texas? All tb communities are simply too far away from Denton.


    7. Tariq Atari says:


      My request is a bit different. Is there any land that Toll Brothers owns and not planning on developing but would like to sell in Virginia?

      • Andrew Espinoza says:

        Hello Tariq, we appreciate your question. I have reached out to our Virginia team and will get back to you when I have more information. Thanks!

    8. Justin K says:

      Hello, do you have any plans to build in Tracy, California anytime soon? Thanks!

    9. Albina Mascetta says:

      Does Toll Brothers have plans to build in Yonkers, NY?

    10. Shery says:


      We love TB homes and wondering if TB is planning to build luxury houses (~1 acer) in Bucks county (Doylestown, Furlong, Ivyland) Pennsylvania anytime soon? I can see there are couple communities in Chalfont, Warrington, Doylestown, and Warminster now but there are smaller houses. They built a community few years ago in Ivyland, PA (Reserve at Northampton) which was absolutely beautiful. There are many free lands in that area. Having said that, is TB planning to build similar communities in Pennsylvania, Bucks county? Thanks.

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hi Shery, we currently do not have any communities in Bucks County in our pipeline that feature 1-acre homesites. We hope this helps answer your question, thanks!

    11. Sophia gg says:

      Amazing homes!
      Wondering if you buy an individual land and build it in OC ca?
      Any new projects in OC ?

    12. Mohan says:

      I am a former TB homeowner. Would buy TB again, but your single family homes are out of my price range in the San Francisco Bay area. Your current starting price of about $1.5 Million for a single family home is not affordable for many families who need to live and work near San Francisco & Silicon Valley. Please consider building in the outer Bay area suburbs like Tracy, Antioch, Brentwood and Vacaville. These locations are within commuting distance to the Bay Area but could enable you to sell at a more affordable price point to younger families & those looking to downsize. Please forward this to your land development & Northern California team. Thanks!

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hi Mohan, we will forward this along to the appropriate team members. As a former Toll homeowner, we value your input greatly. We are always looking for new places to build are award-winning designs. Thank you!

    13. Levi says:

      Hi, do you have any other ‘coming soon’ plans for howard county MD other than willowcreek?
      Also, any future plans to reinstate your ‘on your lot’ programs?

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hi Levi, as of now, Willow Creek is our only upcoming community in Howard County. As for the “on your lot” program, can you please elaborate on what you are asking for? Thanks!

        • Levi says:

          Hi, you used to have an ‘on your lot’ program where you build on customer’s provided lot/land. It has since been discontinued. Am asking if Toll Brothers have any plans of re-instating the program.

        • Pranav M says:


          Do you have any plans for upcoming communities in Sugar Land, TX?

          • Toll Brothers says:

      Thank you in advance.

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hi Drina, we appreciate your interest in our homes! Unfortunately, the Stelvio model is not available in any of our Frisco communities. We hope this helps answer your question. Thanks!
