I encourage my friend Julie to not walk to Edgewood Retail District along LaFrance for 1.5 miles. It's not a pedestrian thoroughfare. An APS school bus, or an Edward's Bakery truck might hit you. Maybe a MARTA bus.
Maybe, some thug off of Mayson Street just might think you're pretty enough to be in his stable of ladies, so the risk is all yours...
Hank's right about condos, lofts and townhomes.
There is a bar opening on Rogers Street, the street with the soccer fields and the street that separates Arizona 1 and 2 - great idea, but not a high traffic street - I wish the risk takers on this venture good luck.
I will drink there, but I won't walk home to my house in Kirkwood,, even though it's only 1 mile away.
AZ 1&2 both have lots of positives, and the grand negative is location at the rail line, but you get a pretty good value, especially when paying under $200,000.
I think that AZ2 interior finishes are sexy - some of the absolute best in the price range.
Don't spend too much - it's condo ownership, and it will not appreciate
