From studio apartments to luxury condominiums, downtown New Orleans offers a variety of contemporary residences, including renovated warehouses and other commercial buildings. In most cases, these units, have been redeveloped in the past decade and are located in four historic districts: Canal Street, Lafayette Square, Picayune Place and the Warehouse District.
The Warehouse District is defined by Convention Center Boulevard, Howard Avenue, Magazine and Poydras Streets. Since the early 1800’s it has been a part of the Central Business District dealing with trade and commerce on the Mississippi River ports. Industries that once found homes here include cotton, sugar, iron, manufacturing, and retail stores. Today, many of the old factories and warehouses have been renovated into luxury condominiums and apartments, and the old Warehouse District still thrives as both a neighborhood and business center.
The architecture of this area is a combination of residential and commercial buildings, including many beautiful Greek Revival style warehouses, which predominate the district. Buildings share common walls and are of masonry construction. There has been very little demolition or new construction in the 20th century in this area, so the exteriors remain as beautiful reminders of the past. Nonetheless, interior renovations have made luxury condominiums a popular way to experience the best of both worlds, with modern, convenient living amidst old-world charm.
