The 625 St. Charles Ave Condos are Luxury Units in the New Orleans Warehouse District. The condos are 7 years old and were built as condos. The 11 story building is in a fantastic location on St. Charles Ave across from Lafayette Square in downtown New Orleans. The 39 units are at least all two bed room plus and two bath starting at about 1300 sq. ft going up to about 3000 sq. ft. units for the four Pent House Condos.
The building on the far right is Gallier Hall and the bleachers in the foreground were getting ready for the Mardi Gras parades to roll this past season. The streetcars roll by your front door and you can walk to many a high class meal from this location. Its an easy walk to the Louisiana Super Dome, New Orleans Arena, Federal Courts and the French Quarter.
The 625 St. Charles Ave. Condos features include 2 parking spots in the garage for each unit. The security is 24 hours and very secure. There is an indoor lap pool and fitness room. There is a common area conference room, catering kitchen and reception area on the second floor. Most of the units are custom built outs by the owners so very few or none are going to look the same.
There are currently 5 units for sale ranging in price from $635,000 to 1.9 million. All the units have been listed in the last 60 days. The complex has have 6 sales since 2006 as the condos tend to have long term owners and some been forced to move due to Katrina. The views are going to vary by the story and the direction of the units.
The units generally start in the upper five hundred range up to million plus for the large pent house units. I have seen a couple that I have really liked and some that had no appeal at all. It all depends upon how the units were finished off by the original owners.
The location on St. Charles Ave provides for some great scenery. Lafayette Square is directly across the street. The streetcar line is right out the front door. Its easy access to I-10 several blocks away. The area is busy but not crowded yet you are close to most things that happen in town.
The Federal Courthouses are across Lafayette Park which is a large well kept park in the middle of town. The statue is that of John Mcdonough who was an early benefactor of the New Orleans Public Schools leaving his fortune to be split between New Orleans and Baltimore once he died. There are several schools named after him that survive till today.
