Best Advice for Expanding a Condo in a STACK

Realtor Advice----Live in a 20-story stack (nearly new)---Strongly believe building is great investment (great HOA/etc).

If/when given the opportunity (assuming all HOA-Code/Covs/Rules/etc.met)-- would it be better to expand, "UP"--Sideways---or Down? Pretty sure, as long as I go "up/down"----floor plan will remain same (ie. same size)----Have largest floor plan.

You probably only have four choices, so you might have your architect work out possible layouts for the three possible floor plans (we assume the stack above and below you is the same) and if they make sense, then perhaps take them to bid so that when a neighboring unit comes up, you'll be ready to go.

All the best,

Hmmm, I guess it depends on what is offered for sale, and at what cost. The ability to create a grand entry way or high ceilings in some areas would be a benefit of up/down. But for those that enjoy single level living, the right/left option might be nice.

All and all, my personal first option would be up/down.
