Best Place to Buy a Condo

When the District at Green Valley Ranch opened in 2004, it offered the promise of living in the only true mixed-used development in the Valley, with 88 condos above retail, dining and office space. But at $500 per square foot, they weren’t for everybody. Now condos are available for nearly one-fifth that price, with amenities such as marble floors, granite countertops and maple cabinetry, plus access to a full gym and to the nearby Green Valley Ranch Resort swimming pool. The association fee is steep (nearly $700 per month), but all things considered, these condos are a relative bargain.
