I don't think that the quality is any different than it was before... obviously there are some builders who did a better job such as Royal Palm Communities in Esplanade Grande.
All condos are challenging right now as they have mortgage financing limitations and several thousand units of inventory to compete with.
Flagler Pointe is a nice property - the benefit of it that adds value is its proximity to the intracoastal...the views enhance the value and help maintain it down the road.
Other properties to consider right there are The Slade and Villa Lofts.
Safety - if you're talking about crime, you'll have to check with the Police department as Realtors are not allowed to comment on that issue - if you're talking about the safety of the building in a hurricane, all of the newer construction units have been built to modern hurricane codes
I would just find a good Buyer's Agent (like me!) and have them (ME!) do a search based on what's available in your configuration and price range....then we can get out in the car and SEE them so you can make a real judgement.
I would also consider Delray Beach downtown area - great and thriving Atlantic Avenue is a fun place to live
Alternatively, if you're worried about the market, you may want to check out some properties that are over-55 and newer construction - those with high concentrations of cash buyers seem to be fairing better right now.
