CBD / Warehouse District Real Estate
Bounded by Canal Street to the south and the Pontchartrain expressway (US90B) to the south, the Central Business District and Warehouse District have both been home to explosive growth in residences over the last few years.
The Warehouse District was, as the name implies, home to the various cotton, rice and sugar warehouses that served the port of New Orleans. After the 1984 World’s Fair, the Warehouse District began taking shape as condos were developed along the river. Throw in the convention center, the Arts District, multiple museums (WWII, Southern Art, Contemporary Art and more) and art galleries, fantastic dining options and annual events such as White Linen Night and it all combines into one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in New Orleans.
The Central Business District is home to not just high rise offices, but also to some reinvented spaces that have most recently been transformed into apartments and condos. Luxury living is the standard for most options in the CBD and this area is most comparable to other urban choices such as those in New York. Parking can be at a premium, but public transportation is always nearby, so having a vehicle isn’t a necessity unless you want it to be. With Canal Street dividing the CBD from the French Quarter, you’ll be just minutes away from everything you need for a staycation.
