Point Breeze, Brewerytown, and the lower part of Kensington are well on their way and for the most part extremely affordable. I can also see Mantua and other parts of West Philly changing way before Camden does.
If camden is going to attract a critical mass of new residents... it will have less to do with proximity to CC and more to do with proximity to jobs in Camden itself. I can see people moving there to be walking distance to their jobs in Camden. We'll see how things are looking in 2020 or so when all these new jobs from NJ EDA are up and running.
