Gem Condo, Soul of the Arts District New Orleans, Louisiana
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
A village of trendy warehouse-turned-condos captures those wanting to live in the downtown area but not in The Quarter. The bells from the Old St. Patrick's Church, the warmth of it's residents, the charming farmer's market, fine eateries and shops are just a few of the treasures to enjoy.
The warehouse arts district was originally established as an active industrial area in the 1800's that fed the important Port of New Orleans. After decay and abandon of near a century the art community and then hip residents started renovating, restoring and reinventing lofts and condos in 19 century buildings and lined them up with a wealth of museums, art galleries, restaurants and shops. Now is called “the SoHo of the South”. The Central Business District originally referred to as the American Sector (in juxtaposition to the French Quarter after the Louisiana Purchase) was developed within the same square mile of the Warehouse Arts District. Office and professional buildings for the old and new city defined the skyline of New Orleans then and now. A walk thru the CBD and Warehouse Arts District is a cultural travel experience that includes trade history.
Our condo is located on the third floor of a historic warehouse of the turn of the 20 century.
It is nestled among the finest restaurants, bars and live music venues of the city. The bright immense windows gaze to the famous galleries exhibits at Julia Street Art District from the living room.
