  • That’s about the going rate in this condo complex. You’re not going to get a better price per square foot (considering mortgage + condo fees) in Southwest. Some of the furnishings are dated, but taking down the window dressings and mirrored walls and repainting would go a long way.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I love the blue countertops. The kitchen tile isn’t exactly my taste. But it’s certainly livable and could be modernized over time.

    It’s worth noting that the pool shown is not part of the condo complex, and it costs a little extra to swim there. But DPR has Randall pool right down the street and it’s free. And the pool shown is very quiet, so I wouldn’t hesitate to live near it.

  • Considering the massive construction scheduled to start this fall directly behind this unit (330 unit apartment building), not a good deal.

    • construction is temporary, and only the first couple months (pile driving) are particularly annoying. I might take it into consideration if I were renting somewhere short-term, but if I wanted to live in SW i wouldn’t delay just because of this. if you wait til there’s no construction, it’s going to be a lot more expensive.

      • It’s not just the noise of construction (that is just a few years of annoyance), it’s that there will be a big 8 or 9 story building right behind this unit blocking a lot of the natural light and the pool that they’re highlighting in the listing will be unusable for at least a few years. I wouldn’t be comfortable buying this unit without knowing what my back yard/natural lighting will be like after all the construction is over. If I wanted to live in this condo complex, I would wait for basically any other unit to become available – they come up quite often and most have small courtyards and other town homes behind them, not towers.

  • Seems misleading to not mention that the pool is not part of the complex. But as to finding out about new construction coming nearby, that’s always advisable to do on your own – it isn’t in the real estate agent’s interest to mention it. I’ve actually seen real estate agents lie to potential buyers faces about knowing anything about it when asked directly.
