If you talk to the developers of these projects you'll find out that the people buying these are either those who live in other urban neighborhoods of the city (Shadyside, Friendship, etc...) who think nothing of spending $400k on a place to live, and transplants from other cities who see $400k for a downtown condo and think "Wow, what a deal!" These new downtown residents are not Pittsburgh area suburbanites who have rediscovered the city as hoped.
