The 12 unit condo association at 8416 Oak Street is unique in a number of ways. There are not many other complexes in the area. The complex was new construction in 2005, few new complexes over 4 units have been built in Uptown New Orleans. The Uptown New Orleans condos have two parking spots for each unit and one is in the garage. The large porches, swimming pool, and courtyard are unusual for a 12 unit complex. All the units are two bedroom units. Many of the smaller two bedroom units are town-homes with one bedroom up and one down. Real Estate prices are generally cheaper in the area so this is possible.
The condos are all two bedroom units and origionally sold in the 249k range for the smaller two bedroom units of 1100sq. ft. There were several larger units in the 320′s range. There is currently one listing for sale on the first floor off the pool and courtyard. Its a very nice unit and was used as the developers model in 2005 so it has some extras.
The designer kitchens featured granite coountertops, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and even a wine cooler to top it off. The high ceilings, wood floors, plenty of light and crown molding give you a look above the norm in all of the units. The area remained hihg and dry during Katrina.
The large porches are very unique and a very nice touch. The pool and courtyard are in great condition and very private as there are only 12 units using the common areas. There is a secure entrance on Maple Street with the parking entrance on a side street. The porches are really great and offer plenty of room to visit and just enjoy the outside views and great wheather we will have in a couple of months. There is an elevator and stairs to the upper units.
