But many of the units priced for upper middle class and higher-end buyers have gone vacant this year, with some developers launching agressive marketing campaigns to try to attract new customers. In the second part of Jim Letizia's annual end-of-the-year interview with the mayor, Coleman talks about the latest on his two-year-old proposal to build streetcars downtown and why he thinks the downtown housing market is the strongest in the area.
