"Dellionaires" (although they don't have to work at Dell to be one). Celebrities, CEO's....

Those condos aren't as expensive as they might first appear. Lots of downtown lawyers, a few doctors, I personally know one Freescale employee.....

I know that sometimes the Real Estate Section of the paper will run an article about high rise residents. Seems like a number of them are also empty nesters who want to be closer to the action now that the kids are out of the house

You can get a high-rise condo for under $300k. It'll probably be a 1/1 - but most of them aren't that big anyway besides the penthouses.

Lots of people living down town are people who bought homes 20-30 years ago close to downtown and sold them recently for a bazillion dollars more than they paid for them - thus, money for the DT condo.
