New Orleans Warehouse District



Warehouse District Condos EB

 


Designed in 1904 by architects Favrot and Livaudals the Federal Fibre Mills warehouse was completed in 1907 and used for the production of rope, largely for ships in port. It was used as a pavilion for the 1984 New Orleans World´s Fair. The old rope factory, built of heavy timber, is an interesting study of conversion efficiency. Over one million dollars was spent on initial cleanup with a deep desire to preserve the character and flavor of both the New Orleans tan bricks and the first growth heart of Southern yellow pine. Because the building is listed on the National Register for Historic Places, strict guidelines for modification of the structure were followed. A fireplace which was part of the old office had each of its 1,000 bricks numbered so it could be assembled as it was. 

Degrading a dock-high floor allowed for apartments with loft bedrooms. Creating three levels out of two floors and adding a penthouse to the roof, generated substantial additional square footage and exceptionally nice spaces. The conversion led to 140 units all being different floorplans to take advantage of the historical nature of the structure. No 2 units are alike and are spread over the 5 floors. This was one of the first comversions so if updates have not been done in the kitchen and baths they will look old and be old as the conversion was done 15 years ago. The trend at the time was a lot of levels and lofts. It all depends on what has be done to the unit as to how nicely it has been updated. A lot of the units have been changed and upgraded.

Today the Federal Fibre Mills in the New Orleans Warehouse District is still a special conversion because of the amount of time, effort and detail put into the common areas such as the lobby, courtyard, and location within the area. You are across the street from a park and a block from the New Orleans Convention Center.
 
This is also a great condo complex in which a New Orleans Warehouse second home makes a lot of sense due the security and great common areas.
Update Fall 2007

The Federal Fibre Mills has become one of the most popular condos in the Warehouse District. Most of the people like them for their common ground grounds, courtyards and lobby. As time goes on this is a favorite of second homers and young doctors that work in the nearby Medical complexs of LSU and Tulane. many people have updated the units to give many of the units a great Warehouse feel.
