Cool. I agree that it would make a lot more sense for Barton Street improvement to march steadily east from James, but the market doesn’t always work that way. The one risk will be if one or more developers get really disheartened when a project doesn’t do as well as hoped because it was too far east. I’m sure these guys understand the scale of time it may take.

Re: pricing. What does a house cost near Barton and Wentworth? I know some people like condos because they’re not interested in doing yard work and all that, but if you want three bedrooms, I’m guessing you can do quite a bit with $250,000 or more in that area- aren’t people going to realize that they COULD live in Gibson School, or they could have their own detached, and get a General Contractor to do a whole whack of work on it for less money.

Likewise with a studio- pay $130,000, or rent a big apartment right around the corner for $700 or thereabouts.
