Quintessential Warehouse Living at its finest. The large spaces, over-sized windows, polished concrete floors, lots of light, plenty of storage space, with large bedrooms make these a nice choice if you need space . The 825 Lafayette Condos are located on a quiet street in the New Orleans Warehouse District. The complex is half a block from Barone near the old Civic Theater which is now apartments.
The 12 unit 5 story building was an early conversion in this area. The first floor is all garage parking with secure entrance on Lafayette Street. The condos in this area tend to be larger units with fewer units as the type of buildings change from those nearer the Mississippi River. More storage and office warehouses and less manufacturing such as the Cotton Mills, Fibre Mills, and the Bakery.
The units are very large for the Warehouse District and are a true warehouse look with concrete floors, exposed beams, brick walls giving you that rustic warehouse look. The units range in size form 1500-2000 sq. ft. of living with each unit having at least one parking spot in the garage. Each has at least 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The bedrooms are large with plenty of storage with large closets.
The last couple of sales have gone from 400k to 480k or about $230-$250 per square foot. There are currently no units for sale in the complex. The condo fees are reasonable for such large units. There is a roof top area that could be further developed.
The entrance and drive way is right here. There is a parking lot next door and on street parking is easy in this area of town but there are a lot of meters. You will love the meter maids as that is one part of city government that is always at work.
