It's generally an expensive and busy area, but if you can afford it, it's probably the all-around best area in Taipei for dining and shopping. It's also a key MRT transportation hub, so very convenient.
Edit: Those are the pros. It just occurred to me that many years ago I lived in a room in a rented apartment on Fuxing, near Heping -- so quite a bit south of where you are looking -- and it was one of the noisiest apartments I've ever lived in (because of construction projects going on in multiple adjacent apartments). No matter where you are moving in Taipei, it's always a good idea to look/ask around for signs or hints of possible construction nearby.
