I expect this would be the same...
If you're choosing to live in downtown New West, you're gonna hear the trains. I live on Royal Avenue and it's the trucks roaring up and down for 16 hours a day that is far, far more annoying. I find the train horns relaxing and part of the charm of living next to the Fraser. I know not everyone shares my views though. The Quay residents are always up in arms about the train noise but to be honest, the trains were there long before any apartment buildings and it was their choice to buy there.
As for T+H, most of the units are pretty small with many skinny one bedrooms, but they are priced right and they will attract lots of young singles and couples. A couple of the two bedroom plans are nice. Downtown and Columbia is on the cusp of a renaissance and many young people are moving there.
