There's a lot going on downtown now... lots of loft condos being built, sale and rentals. Also an active arts scene in the Downtown Arts District. I lived downtown near Old Salem before I moved a couple of months ago (hubby's job transfer), so I'm not as familiar with condos in the Country Club Road area. If I'm not mistaken, the ones you mention are older apt. conversions... maybe explaining their pricing?

In terms of general growth patterns, Hanes Mall area, Clemmons, Lewisville, Pfafftown seem to be areas seeing the most growth. Also Robin Hood Road, at and beyond Peacehaven. I rarely went out Country Club beyond Gordon Manor, but there was a lot of new stuff going up between Jonestown Rd and Peacehaven.

Default condos

I think you might be right about the apartment-to-condo conversions. I actually prefer older construction (pre-1980), less likely to fall apart and you can't hear through the walls.
I was looking at some condo listings closer to the Hanes Mall area (Miller Park), but am concerned about things I've been hearing about crime and a downward spiral in and around the mall itself. When I lived there in the 90s it was considered an upscale mall but from what I've heard it's attracted a bit of a "ghetto element"....true?

I've noticed a little more "ghetto" element there in the mall since we moved here 6 years ago. It's not bad but I imagine down the road it may get worse. If I were you I would probably look elsewhere.
