Pier Eight Condos, New Orleans Lakefront
318 Lake Marina Drive, New Orleans 70124
The Pier Eight Condos are 77 condos over three floors across the street from the Marina in Lakeview Neighborhood of New Orleans. There are 6-7 larger associations within 3-4 blocks but Pier Eight is the least expensive of the entire group. Completed about 40 years ago. There is an even split between the two bedroom units and the one bedroom units.
There are 10 units with courtyards on the bottom floor. A number of units have balconies. All the units have designated parking that is secure and gated. There is also ample guest parking out side the gates. A few of the units will have covered parking. There are several elevators and multiple stairs. Very few units have washer and dryers inside the units but there is an on site laundry for all to use.
The condo fees are moderate for New Orleans. They cover water, insurance, flood insurance, upkeep of the grounds and buildings, termite contracts and cleaning the common areas. The condo association has done a good job with the upkeep of the common areas. Many of the units have see updating in the last 5 years and that will be the biggest differences in the pricing.
The amenities include a really nice tropical courtyard around the pool and a Barbeque area near the pool. Many of the condos look out over the pool. There is also a roof top deck above the third floor overlooking the marina. All the front doors are covered so the rain will not get on you as you come and go.
The lakefront location makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors. You can walk to the marina, West End Park, Cycle around the area. The lake breezes make being outside a lot of fun. You can walk to eats, drinks, groceries and various stores. Lakeview is a much shorter ride to downtown than many think. Easy 12-15 minutes. It’s 6-8 minutes to I-10.
The Lake View housing market have been doing extremely well over the past two years. The upscale condos in the area have also been doing very well over the past year as well. That is why I think Pier Eight has a good future. Enjoy the area and have some appreciation over the years.
