Value-wise, it's in a minor neighbourhood near the Granville shops and Shaughnessy . Likely to see more development in the future.
It's a recent building which is nice. The footage is typical for townhouses, i.e. compact. The main plus is the substantial private patio. Is that important to you? How much does the patio add to the price?
Price-wise, it depends on the price history of the building. The neighbourhood's older walk-ups are $500 psf (?).
No choice is perfect. Your decision must be made on the basis of the choices before you.
In my case, the condo I chose was far from perfect. But, the market turned so fast that what i bought was the best available.
So, you're doing the right thing. Shop long and hard before you make the buy decision.
Have a look at this renovated townhouse in an older estate. No private patio, but lots of elbow room. Good hunting.

Or, a townhouse on the waterfront. #102 and #105 are relatively cheap because they are in the shadow of the next building. But, the townhouses face a small semi-private park. See for yourself. Transit station nearby in Yaletown.
