Beau Rivage and High Pointe Place are two that come to mind. I'd go for the latter because they are directly across the street from the new Publix and First Watch.

You could check by street. Look for an condo on West First Street. It runs right along the river between the Edison Home and Centennial Park. It's close enough to walk to the downtown area but you get to avoid the noise and traffic.

BTW, it's Miss and you're welcome! If you need any more help looking in this area, just let know!

Hi,
Sounds like you know the area. I'm looking at a condo at St. Tropez...I'm a single woman. Can I safely walk around daytime or early evening?

I think it is very difficult to recommend a condo in the River District/Downtown area since there are so many factors involved. If you have a dog this will limit your choice. As I have mentioned before Oasis and Beau Rivage do allow them.
After living at Oasis for nearly six months I think if I could do it all again I would seriously consider High Point Place but who knows, the problems I have found at Oasis may be even worse there. You can live in development that looks great but have a bad neighbor (Oasis has their fair share of these) and be unhappy. From what I have seen Beau Rivage has an older audience. Oasis much younger especially in Tower 2.
I agree with Whippersnapper, convenience counts for a lot and just being able to walk to Starbucks, shop in Publix or sit in the park without driving or walking a mile along First Street in the summer heat counts for a lot.
At Oasis there are no gates, just barriers, so anyone can walk in and out. In some of the older condo developments they are much more secure. I don't think from memory that Beau Rivage even has barriers.
I would not recommend that you take a walk after dusk if you live the Oasis side of town. During the day a small canister of pepper spray on your belt (similar to the ones the mail men have) is a good idea. I don't think it is a good idea for a woman alone to walk along Palm Beach Blvd even during the day. There is not much to see there anyway.
Another poster said that one should be aware of one's surroundings. This is so true. If you see someone that that looks suspicious walking towards you don't be proud, just cross the street or enter a shop.
I like the downtown area but to really enjoy it I think that one should live very close to the center and not on the edge of town.
If you have any specific questions I will do my best to answer them.
