Thanks in part to inflation, the predicted decline in prices has not happened. In fact, I see prices higher than ever in the most desirable areas.
ghost said:" This is for the best buildings of Argentina that are in most cases superior to any others in the world ."
I was nodding my head "yes" until I got to this line. Sorry, when one looks at infrastructure and building codes. The terms "superior" and Argentina do not go hand in hand.
Yes I fully agree with you Ghost on this comment . Most buildings constructed today are shoddy with little attention to details . My post was referring to the golden age of Buenos Aires Architecture . The best examples of these buildings can be found on Avenida De Mayo, Alvear Avenue, Rodriguez Pena, Ayacucho, Riobamba, Avenida Rivadavia and others. Many buildings from that age have very solid construction with intricacy of details that is rarely seen anywhere. I can mention many famous apartment buildings with important entrances and doors that historians believe to be the best examples worldwide. One of my favourite streches of buildings is along Avenida de Mayo from Nueve de Julio to Plaza Congreso passing the Palacio Barolo. Here you will see domes of all shapes and sizes and marble staircases that were shipped at great cost from Europe. Apartments to purchase in this neighbourhood are between 1500 to 2000 dollars a square metre . For what you pay for there you cannot get anywhere else worldwide now and more so if you look at the location a 5 min walk to the Centre Of Buenos Aires.
Recoleta of course is dearer but even the best old world buildings are around US $ 2500 to US $ 3500 per square metre. As you cannot replicate these buildings and details ever again of course they will go up in price.
