Well, not likely.
South Creek Landing will probably appreciate a lot before those parking lots get redeveloped. So even if this property sells less than an equivalent spot a few blocks over, it will still (probably) sell for more than what it's worth today.
I would be OK with buying in that building and enjoying the location and the view for the next few years, then selling at a future date for MORE money than today. I don't have to get greedy and worry about what I *could have* got if the other property hadn't gone and ruined my view.
