I agree on purchase of a new construction house, it will be just as expensive in the city. However OP was looking at apartment complex to rent. City side is less expensive in that catagory.

Franks right in regards to those homes off of Southampton Rd. When I first saw them I thought "why on earth is this not 5 miles down the road in Bensalem?" ... I can't fathom why someone would want to pay that much for new construction right outside of the suburbs.

The ONLY reason is because they work for city gov't or such and they have to live within city boundaries. Otherwise why would anyone hay city wage and be subjected to less then average schools in the city

There is a development like that off Grant Ave in Torrsdale right beside I-95 and the Torrsdale train station and surrounded by a park. You may have seen them being built in the last several years although they now have a noise barrier so they are no longer seen from 95.
It is called Eden Hall Estates and is one deadend road of mac-mansions, each one more exquisite and beautifully manicured then it's neighbor. They are all sold and occupied and none seems to be for sale so I don't know what they are worth. It is a nice enough neighborhood but still you have to wonder what the attraction is other than being super convenient to CC.
