Agreed. $2500 is WAAAAAY too expensive for their offering. Kind surprises me that they're almost all leased up, too.I should add that your reasoning as well as the noise is all why I'm surprised it's leased up decently. Their cheapest 2 bed 2 bath I've seen lately is basically $2500/month. That's big money for a relatively non-luxury rental in Edmonton.
The noise doesn't bother me either--I live off 109 and Jasper--but it's a pretty common complaint among some of the other residents of my building and other people I know who are turned off by it.
1 - We live really close to each other, haha.
2 - People need to have realistic expectations. If you don't want noise, living in a busier urban area is not of you. We have plenty of suburban, or even quieter urban areas (actually, more than I think we should).
