A big fear I have is that most people who will buy a condo there won't live in it. Not sure what kind of neighbors I would end up with.
Even if the condos are half vacant - you have to have be willing to accept lack of privacy and small living accommodations in respect to the investment.

Personally I rather invest 300K a bit outside of the city and have a yard, a home, and nobody telling me how loud I can listen to music, movies etc..

I also believe more people over emphasize the need to live downtown. For most it's a temporary lifestyle, either for school and a few years after that.

For me at least, living downtown got old fast.
