 The Henderson was origionally a sugar warehouse in New Orleans for the Godchaux Sugar Refinery.The building is constructed of heavy timber and brick. The units were converted into apartments in 1987. The apartments were converted into condos about 10 years later. There were few updates done when they were sold as condos.

     The Henderson Condos on Commerce was one of the first conversions of apartments into condos in 1996. The 60 units vary greatly in floor plan and size. Most of the units are one bedroom units with some tow bedroom units. The sizes range from 550 sq. ft. to about 1200 Sq. ft.  

    The condo fees are moderate as the only include a rooftop area and party room. There is very limited parking for the units in the building. Most units will not have parking but contract parking can be had within 2-3 blocks.

     One style of unit open onto the street from the first floor. These are loft style units with the double doors opening onto the street and with a rear door opening into the garage.  

    My favorite units are the opens that have windows overlooking Commerce and Notre Dame. They have street views and most are one level units with exposed brick, exposed beams and get outside light. Many of these will have an extra room but no closet so it will not be classified as a two bedroom. However it makes an excellent guest bedroom.

    There are many units that open to an atrium without street views.  Most of these are loft style units with windows to the atrium. You have units that have the bedrooms down and some have the bedrooms up. 

    Over the past almost 20 years many of these condos have been upgraded and look much different from the early days. The Henderson Condo Association has done a great job over the past 5-6 years of doing a lot of updates of the commmon areas.  It looks so much better than when I first started selling units in the 2004 time frame.

The Henderson Condos at 700 Commerce were one of the first apartments in the modern Warehouse District. Converted in 1996 from apartments. The units vary in size from 550sq. ft. units to 1200 sq. ft. units. A lot of the units do not have parking. Some have garage parking but that is limited. Parking is available on a contract basis for around $100 per month at several places. There are going to be one and two bedroom units. The units vary greatly on condition and style depending on what is owner has done. Many of the units are loft style units that were the thing to do when these were converted into apartments. Some look like regular apartments and some have the warehouse feeling and views. It varies greatly from unit to unit. The units should be among the least expensive in the New Orleans Warehouse District due to parking and the floor plans. Some however are great units while some are not.   The location has gotten better and better as the area has really into inot an upscale area. Harrahs is an easy walk.

There is a roof top area and a nice common room on the roof for all to use. Elevators are inside the front door. Keypad entry. These are some of the older condos in the area. If you are looking for something to update the Henderson may be for you. I think the lack of parking and updates of the common areas has hurt these units. Just an opinion!
