I believe the new increased property taxes are in line with others of the same value in the City. Also when you buy a condo, if it is assessed at a higher value then you pay for it, you can appeal the assessment next year to try to reduce the tax bill.
My view of the building is that it can be a great place for some and okay for others. You have your own priorities, needs and requirements. What amenities are absolutely necessary for you? Where do you work - what is your comfortable for you as far as mode of transportation, commute time, parking arrangements? Are you a runner or biker? It may be important to be by the River Track/Path and Fairmount Park. I'm very familiar with the building and many others in the area too. We can talk more about our views of buildings and what is most important to you when we speak.
Have you been through any of the condos at River's Edge or elsewhere yet? Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. If you haven't chosen a Realtor yet, I'd be honored to be considered to represent you as your Buyer's Agent and help you find and negotiate a good deal on your next home. Looking forward to speaking with you soon. Stay warm.
All the best,
