This is a good example of one of the historic condos in the coliseum area that I have recently sold. Its an historic building that has been totally redone, its basically new construction at this point. Surrounded by million dollar homes with green space in the form of an urban park called Coliseum Square.
There are several condo association within 3 blocks of the Square and park. Located in the Lower Garden District, its close to everything. This one is located 1446 Camp Street across the street from the Park and its many oak tress and fountian. Its only 4-5 blocks to the New Orleans Warehouse District which is still very much in demand. Walk to Magazine Street and watch the changes going on there.
As housing prices firm so do the prices and demand for condos that fit peoples needs. People are still picky and want the most for their money. The big difference in this area is the type of conversions that have taken place over the last ten years. Many conversions are turning small apartment complexes that were old homes into condos. This gives you the historic feel of a modern place with high ceilings, large windows, wood floors and some nice views that would be very expensive in other areas of town.
The unit we sold is the balcony unit overlooking Coliseum Square with with plenty of natural light. Each unit has gated parking. There are only 6 units within the renovated old home. The developer went over the top trying to keep the old features while at the same time making this almost new construction.
The prices in area make the neighborhood much more affordable the neighborhoods surrounding it. The historic condos fit nicely into the neighborhood and add life to the total neighborhood. The more owners you have in an area, the more they care about the quality of life and their investment. Just another area of New Orleans that gives you a taste of the Crescent city…..
