Mortgage lending is already pretty anemic IIRC. It's definitely too cautious to fuel a true condo boom around the city. Banks are already extending mortgages to the most credit-worthy folks only, so I'm not sure they have much room to pull back in the event of a recession.

In other words, the folks buying high-end downtown condos right now would probably be doing that anyway, recession or not.
