Federal Fibre Mill Condos, Common Areas grade an A Plus! Common Areas are part of your values!

    The Federal Fibre Mills Condos is one of the oldest downtown condos but has one of the best common areas in the New Orleans Warehouse District at any price point.  The Federal Fibre Mills is located at 1107 S. Peters is a block from the New Orleans Convention Center.  The block across the street is a green space park to be enjoyed by all.  The key point is that common areas done nicely help make up the value of your condo, it is not just all about size.  The value grows over time as its harder and harder to match. 

Federal Fibre Mills Condos

     One of the most important factors in valuing your condo is the appeal of the common areas that you are going to see day and nite while you are living or visiting your condo.  The Federal Fibre Mills Condos were built as housing for the 1984 Worlds Fair and was actually the site of the German Beer Garden for that period.

     The original developer was giving people an idea of downtown living which was foreign in New Orleans at that time.  What it was like to live in an urban environment.  To accomplish this he left the exposed beams, larger windows, higher ceilings, exposed brick and the large open spaces in each of the units even though they are small.  New Orleans always had the French Quarter but it had no large condo complexes.

    The lobby with the exposed beams going the top floors and open spaces make this more like a hotel lobby.  The Fibre Mills pool and courtyards are one of the best in town with the tropical foliage and walking paths.  The interior units have the courtyard views that over look the tropical courtyards.  Alot of effort was given to quality of life issues which still mean a lot 25 years later.

      An exercise room which is very common today but virtually unknown in its day was added above a dressing room that serves the pool.  There is a huge party room that is used for parties and meetings in the courtyard.  All these add value to the owner and the units.  The demand for these items goes up and keeps the values steady

    The Federal Fibre Mills has parking half a block away.  The security get high grades for watching the front and know all the owners.  There is a manager on site with a couple of people that maintain the common areas.  See more photos below.
