Many of these are built with the cheapest materials possible. The only exceptions are the extremely custom homes on Eastern Walnut st and a few other CC locations. (they also look better too). Almost everything going up in Fishtown right now total crap regardless of how expensive it is. If people can afford it, buy a loft in a converted factory over a stickbuilt rowhome.
Some of the best looking new townhouses I've seen go up in the last couple of years are those associated with the Museum Towers expansion on N. 19th St. Right across the street is the Hamilton Townhouses complex made of brick...still looks nice after about 30 years.
