Hi,
Can anyone give me advice about living in downtown West Palm Beach.
My boyfriend and I are looking at condos there and wondering if the area
is safe and nice. We are in our 40's no children.

Yes, the downtown core is a good place to live. There are condos from several million $, to the 100s. In the past five years it has really come along. However, immediately north of downtown is a run down area, so be aware.

A lot of people have a bad image of downtown WPB, but I work with lots of people who currently live there, and once lived there myself, and really enjoyed it.

Downtown is great, but if you want a newer building be prepared to pay $500+ a month for condo dues. Granted you will have nicer amenities like a concierge, fitness center, pool, etc but the dues can get pretty pricey. Some of the higher floor units have some very nice views as well.

Some of the surrounding communities will have complexes with dues in the $300's for similar amenities and units sizes.

If you are looking at places near the water on the East end of Clematis Street, be aware that it can get noisy.

It can be a plus if you have the right place as you can see concerts from your balcony and watch the crowds during the boat show and Sunfest, along with having a great water view,but again, it can be noisy.

Good luck!

thanks everyone for the replies.
We are also looking at Flagler area buildings on the intercoastal.
does anyone know of this area.. the Rapallo condos and the Lofts?
Not sure we want that much noise at night.

Rapallo will be a quieter location, the Lofts (I'm assuming the ones on Clematis) will have nightlife noise, but it's closer to the action.
