What neighborhood is that looking out on to? It looks very European, 5 to 6 floor buildings and very dense. Doesn't seem to have any condo towers in it except the one obviously u/c. Looks like a fabulous nabe.

It's no more expensive than other neighbourhoods in the core. Condos are your only option though. Prices for condos seem to be pretty uniform throughout the central city. $300,000 for 500 square feet?

That's a great photo. Like mello said I wouldn't mind seeing what the area looks like on the ground.

Wow, great work on the video. I really liked the stadium roof moving towards the end. Rain drops on the lens were cool too.
