I think that many people who buy condominiums are worried about whether they are new or second-hand.
Newly built condominiums are attractive because of their brand new atmosphere, state-of-the-art facilities, and well-equipped common areas.
On the other hand, the appeal of vintage condominiums is that they generally have excellent locations, good old dignity and quality, and a spacious site environment.

But that's not the only big difference.

In newly built apartments, it becomes difficult to stick to materials and fittings. Recently, vinyl and sheet-based fake materials are used not only for wallpaper and fittings, but also for flooring in some cases. Even if they could be upgraded, it would be impossible to pay attention to the details of the frame of the fittings and the fine details.
In comparison, vintage condominiums have already deteriorated equipment and finishes, so it is realistic to purchase the property before renovation and create everything from the floor plan to the materials and fittings as you wish.
In other words, with a vintage mansion, you can create a space with the same attention to detail as a custom-built house. (Of course, if you have the financial means, you can tear down everything and rebuild a new building, but I think it's a waste to tear down things that aren't being used in the first place.)

Here comes an opportunity for architects to demonstrate their abilities.
