Carriage House Condos in the New Orleans Central Business District…

    The Carriage House Condos located at 821 Perido are almost unknown as it is a small complex with only 14 condos.  It is also in the the Central Business District where there are not a lot of condo complexes at this point in time.  The building was totally redone in 2005-2006.  The exterior was refurbished but the inside is completely new in 2006.  Its right around the corner from the Le Pavillon Hotel.  

    The 14 units are spread over the four floors with parking and a lobby on the first floor along with a commercial space.  Each condo has garage parking.  The units are larger than average. The extra large windows, high ceilings and exposed brick merge nicely with the new finishes.  Its all much newer inside than one would think.  The interiors are quite impressive.

    The turnover since the initial selling has been very small as tends to be the case with larger units that are used primarily for residences.  There is a shortage of these type of units as development has been concentrated on rental units of late.  The Go Zone tax credits after Hurricane was for rental units to be built.  The 2008 financial issues prevented much lending on any new condo project.  The Central Business District is now getting ready for several new projects.

    I would predict this area to be a hot bed of activity going forward since it is so close to the new VA hosipital and the LSU Medical Center just blocks away.  Add in the new streetcar line that will run from Loyola to Elysian Fields.  The improvements around the Superdome and New Orleans Arena will also help add to the area.  Add in the Joy and Saenger theater revivals and the area is going to do well. You are going to see more activity in the area as this is a natural expansion  for the New Orleans Warehouse District.
