If these types of proposals continue to pop up and Camden gets more businesses moving in, then yes I 100% agree...but residents will need to have that convenience of being close to work, otherwise you can't compete with the proximity to CC and other mass transit that 'up and coming' (and equally dangerous) parts of Philly have. 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.
