New Orleans Warehouse District, Eric’s NOLA Walk About….

Cotton Mill Windows,Warehouse District

      The New Orleans Warehouse District always has a lot of things to do.  It is a great area to walk and leave the car at home. It has become a great place to live and have a second home.  There are many condo complexes to chose from but not many for sale this time of year.  Had to vist a listing this week at the Cotton Mills Condos so decided to take a walk around the area. I will share some of my stops with you.

Resource Center Warehouse District

Love the windows on this Building

Mississippi River Bridge, Warehouse DistrictThe Mississippi River is the Easter Edge of the Warehouse District. Always some nice shots of the Bridge
Outlet Collection Riverwalk,Warehouse District

      The Outlet Mall is a newer attraction that always is a nice walk if you need to stay cool. It’s on the Mississippi River starting out on Julia Street and ending up at the Spanish Plaza.

Fulton Street,New Orleans Warehouse District

Fulton Street is an entertainment zone near Harrah’s Parking and Casino. It is free to enjoy the plants, the eats and the music…

Poeyfarre Market, Warehouse District

The Poeyfarre Market across from the Cotton Mill Condos

Galvez Monument May 1977

     The Galvez Monument at the International Trade Mart. It was a gift from Spain in 1977. The 12′ high statue is Berardo de G’alvez who served as Govenor of Louisiana and Cuba in the 1700’s. Always enjoy finding out about this statues and why they were put here. They tell such a rich history.

The Cotton Mill Condos in the New Orleans Warehouse District, 920 Poeyfarre Street

289 Cotton Mill Condos,Front Door

     The Cotton Mill Condos were converted into condos in 2004-2005.  There are 288 units in the building that were apartments before that with several penthouse on the roof. The Building was once a Cotton Mill built 1882. It employed about a 1000 people at its peak. It covers an entire block in the New OrleansWarehouse District at 920 Poeyfarre Street between Constance and Annunciation Street.

 

      The units are of varying sizes and configurations. Some condos have exterior view and some have courtyard views. The common historic features that people love are the exposed brick, large warehouse windows, exposed beams, high ceilings ranging from 14′ to 20′, natural light, wood floors and all the common areas the Cotton Mill has to offer.

 

     The common areas include a large courtyard of 25,000 sq. ft. of space with trees, tables, a pool, walkways in the middle of the complex. There is a secure lobby that is manned 24 hours per day. An on site manager and staff that does a great job. There is a large gym, bike storage area, meeting room next to the pool.

 

     The large windows feature city views and views of the courtyard. Even number units have courtyard views while odd number units have city views. Most units have at least two large windows that are at least 6 ft. by 10  ft. on the exposed brick wall. This give the units what I call a true warehouse feel.

 

    The location in the New Orleans Warehouse District is a block from the World War II Museum, several blocks to the Convention Center, a longer walk to the Superdome, Smoothie King Arena and the French Quarter.

 

     Take a look at the photos below to get a feel for the complex.  There is no parking but there are several lots adjacent to the building where you can park on a month to month basis. I have had clients who parked on the street for years however. The condo fees are moderate and you get a lot of common area for the money. The building is well-kept up and you have had ongoing improvements over the last 10 years…

 

     I have sold over thirty condos in the building so could answer most questions that you may have. A Call away, Eric…

The “Bakery Condos” in the New Orleans Warehouse District, Yes it was once a Bakery…

1111 S. Peters, Bakery Condos Front

The Bakery Condos located at 1111 S. Peters in the Warehouse District of New Orleans was once a Holsum  Bakery.  It was turned into apartments and then into condos about 10 years ago.  You can still see the ovens in many of the units.

The roughly 65 units are generally smaller size units than many other complexes in the Warehouse District.  One thing that sets it apart is that almost all the units have parking in a garage or secure lot behind the building.

The units were converted into condos about 10-12 years ago.  recently it has been upgraded with painting of the atrium area and much more.  Condo Complexes all need a cosmetic face lift about every 10 years.  The condo association has become very active with various upgrades and have become self managed recently.  It has made a big difference in the appearance of the common areas.  Looks so clean and refreshing….

1111 S. Peters, Bakery Condos, Elevator

1111 S. Peters Bakery Condos, Atrium Courtyard

     The four-story building has elevators near the front gate and stairs as well.  There is a small gym on the first floor and a patio and pool on the third floor in the rear of the complex. It’s a great area to meet your neighbors and grill.  Plenty of tables and chairs by the pool for this.

      You are a few blocks from the interstate and Mississippi River Bridge.  You are across the street on S. Peters from a park.  Th Convention Center is across the park.  It’s an easy walk to the French Quarter, The Super Dome, Fulton Street, and all things in the Warehouse District.

New Orleans Warehouse District Condos on a Roll, Not Much Availiable and Prices are Way Up

In 2014 the prices of condos in the Warehouse District of New Orleans continue to climb.  Over the past 18 months we have seen increases of 20% with no signs of sales slowing down.  You have to wonder what is driving the prices and demand.  One reason is that  few developments have been built or new conversions have come to market.  The price range that is showing the most activity is from 200 k to 500 k.  I have had 3 listings in the Warehouse District and each has sold near full price within a week of listing.  All the deals were cash.

New Orleans Skyline Shot in Warehouse District

      The largest reason for the increase is that this has become a demand area for second homes.  A lot of these buyers are cash buyers.  Many are from Louisiana and want a place to come to so they can walk to shops, eats, drinks, The French Quarter and take the St. Charles Streetcar line to other points and leave the car behind.  Many of the buyers are empty nesters that have grown kids.  They all like to come and share.  Several years ago it was the two bedrooms that were in demand.  Now it is whatever is on the market.

The only area where sales tend to slow is above the 600 k level where demand drops off somewhat. This price range is still in demand but the increases have not been as great as the lower priced properties.  This price range has had competition of 427 Notre Dame which is brand new development that is almost sold out before it is complete.  All the units in this building are high end units.  I am sure if another complex was brought to market it would do just as well.

There has been plenty of new rental complexes come on line in the last several years.  Many of those  people have decided to buy and stay in the area but there is not much to purchase.

St. Charles Ave. Streetcar in Warehouse District...

    There also several game changing projects that have just been completed or in the process of creating even more demand.  The new River Walk Outlet Mall renovation with a cost of 80 million, The Saenger Theather and the South Market Project costing 200 million.  The New Orleans Arena Renovations and the granddaddy of all is the new VA and LSU Medical Center.  These projects are game changers for the area.  What will happen from a real estate perspective is the  area will spread to adjacent neighborhoods.

Outlet Mall on the Mississippi in New Orleans

      This is one of the units that sold within the first week that it was listed. Just to give you an idea of what you get for your money. In this market you can price your properties right on the money and expect to get close to the numbers.  This is happening over and over again.

The Condos at 700 S. Peters in the New Orleans Warehouse District, A Review!

700 S. Peters Condos, Building in Warehouse District

     I recently listed a two bedroom/two bath condo at 700 S. Peters in the Warehouse District.  I listed it at $499,512 and got a cash offer that was near the asking price within a week.  I thought this would be a good time to review the complex and give you some ideas of what to expect when buying a New Orleans Condo.  We will touch on amenties, condo fees, location and staff.

700 S. Peters Condos, Secure Lobby

     One of the first things you notice when you enter the building is 24 hour security guard at the front desk.  They will not let you in unless the owner has you on a list and they are super careful about who they let in.  The have an on site manager who has an office on the first floor. He knows the owners by name as he has been there several years.  The staff has little turnover as you have a maintaince crew that works at the complex daily doing different functions.

    The more qualified people you have on staff , the more it is going to raise the condo fees.  This is what the majority want so that is what makes the Condos at 700 S. Peters so easy to sell in this vibrant market that we are in.  You get what you pay for in condo association.

700 S. Peters Condos, Fulton Street

      You have heard that real estate is location, location and location.  The 700 S. Peters Condos do have that and has gotten better as the Warehouse Distirct is much more in demand as we move forward. You are between Fulton Street with Harrah’s Casino. The  New Orleans Convention Center, Canal Street, The Mississippi River, The French Quarter, The Streetcars on St. Charles Ave, The World War II Museum,  Many Galleries, Eating and Drinking Places, New Riverwalk Outlet Mall are all with 7-8 blocks away.

700 S. Peters, Rooftop Sitting, New Orleans Warrehouse District

    The complex has a great rooftop pool, courtyard athat is always well taken care of. Great views of the City’s skyline day and night.  All the units have windows facing the street.  The living rooms are large in all the one and two bedroom units.  All the units open up into an atrium that is like a tropical garden. Garage parking for all with valet parking during peak hours of the day. The 24 hour security makes this among the safest in New Olreans.

Julia Place Condos in the New Orleans Warehouse District, They are in the Center of the District, A Review…New Listing of Condo #226

    Julia Place Condos, 333 Julia Street, New Orleans

 The 333 Julia Street address is home to one of the more popular condo complexes in the New Orleans Warehouse District.  I call it the center of the Warehouse District.  The 101 condo units cover the entire block fronting Julia Street between Commerce and Tchoupitoulas Streets.  The two  buildings that make up the condo association are very different.  You are in the middle of the Arts District near the Childern’s Museum and s short walk to the Convention Center and the St. Charles Street Car line.

    The Bemis Building on the right was a bag factory around the 1890’s. Not sure what the building on the right is.  The Bemis building is most concrete beams and large floor to ceiling windows.  The building on the left is wood beams, old wood floors and it much smaller. It faces Tchoupitoulas Street.

     Most of the units come with parking in a lot and on the first floor of the Bemis Building.  The condo association has moderate condo fees.  Julia Places features a Gym that faces Julia Street.  The roof top pool, viewing areas, grilling, clubhouse are hard to beat for some great views day and night. The units are about evenly split between the one and two bedrooms units with most of the two bedroom units has exterior street views.

Julia Place Condo #226  $349,226

The 833 square condo is updated and gives one the true “feeling ” of an upscale New Orleans Warehouse District Condo.  It comes furnished and has a gated parking spot in the lot adjacent to the building.  The unit has an updated kitchen with new cabinets, new counters, some new appliances, breakfast bar, and has an open feel with a breakfast bar.  The unit has been recently painted that gives it a fresh light look and feel.

The condo features 2 bedrooms and a bath in the hallway. No walking through a bedroom to get there.  Washer and Dryer in closet.  Both bedrooms have warehouse windows and the living area has two.  The unique crown molding and exposed brick make an inviting picture.  The wood plank floors are probably original to the historic building.  The exposed beams have been exposed by recent sanding.  The 14 ft. ceilings give you a larger feel with lots of natural light.

This is one of the units where you just move right it and have almost nothing to do.  Most of the furniture is recent and has been rarely used.  It is currently a second home and most likely will be sold as a second home.  I am betting it will not stay on the market long as it have few competitors    on the market right now that has this feel of luxury in a great location.

The condo fees include water, exterior insurance, upkeep of the common areas, management fees, trash, sewerage, parking lots, pool, gym and reserves.  You will still need an HO6 policy for inside the walls and contents.
