Edge, The | Place | No, not the guitarist for U2, but rather a condo. Built in 1999, it was a vanguard of gentrification in an area that would soon become known as Railtown. It was probably named The Edge because it was built on the northern edge of the Downtown Eastside. So edgy!

Usage: “The Edge is a stupid name for a stupid condo.”explore-the-lexicon
