801 St. Joesph Condos
New Orleans, La. 70130
New Orleans Warehouse District

       The 801 St. Joesph Street condos are upscale condos on the corner of Carondelet and St. Joesph.  The complex of 23 units encompasses a large garage and several large town homes on the street and the courtyard.  Its basically 4 separate buildings.

      The upscale condos are large. Many have exposed brick, crown molding, floor molding, high ceilings, and wood floors. The open floor plans make the condos very livable. All the units I have seen have some very nice views of the street or courtyard.

     The condos have a beautiful tropical courtyard, in ground pool, garage parking, secure entrance, and an exercise room.

     The location is getting better all the time. When I started selling condos in 2004 this location was on the outskirts of the warehouse district. It is no more. An easy walk to Lee Circle, Superdome, Rouses and the train station.

     The town homes are at either end of the courtyard and are much larger than most of the condos. They are part of the association. A few of the pictures were taken before Hurricane Katrina.  The building next door collapsed and the brick wall fell down. It was repaired years ago. 

     This is one of the first condos I remember showing years ago. It had everything one would want. Not a lot of turnover in this building now.

THE PLAN: Originally townhouses, then an auto dealership, then an office building, the 29,122-square-foot building saw both renovation and new construction. Four historic townhouses in the rear were preserved, while 16 apartments and a copper-clad two-unit penthouse were added in front of the main building. A look at two of the spaces -- a rear townhouse and a second-floor apartment in the front -- demonstrates the versatility and creativity that come with condo renovation in the Warehouse District. No two units are ever quite alike.

The townhouse is one of four that were retained intact and that flank the swimming pool at the rear of the complex. A bonus is the small private patio, a rarity for urban dwellers. The two-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot, two-story condo has an open floor plan, light bamboo floors and a straight staircase that allows light to wash through the space, from street-side to courtyard. Brick walls were Sheetrocked and painted a smooth cream.

The single-story condo was created by combining adjacent units on the main building's second floor to create a three-bedroom, 2,747-square-foot apartment. Guest rooms and the kitchen lie to one side of the entryway, the master suite, library and living room to the other. Thirteen windows line the two exterior walls of the corner space, and central and outer walls are stripped to the original brick where possible. The grand-piano shaped granite island in the kitchen had to be brought in through the windows. The high ceilings, wood floors and exposed brick make a fine palette for almost any color scheme or style of decor.

"I can do either traditional or contemporary, mix it up," said Jan Dressel, who lives in the condo with her husband, Leo. The couple chose a soft cream tone called "ivoire" for the walls, and a darker bamboo for the floor.

One design shared by these mostly one-of-a-kind condos is their sleek, stainless and granite walk-through kitchens, which invariably open onto community space such as a den or living room.

"It provides more light and space, plus people like to be in the kitchen, to cook in company," said Irene Keil of Wayne Troyer Architects.

THE CONCEPT: The St. Joseph Condominiums respect historic context while embracing contemporary innovation. Thus, the architects strove for interpretive use of materials, forms and proportions in both interiors and exteriors. The new pool pavilion was made of translucent polycarbonate, allowing for transmission of light while preserving privacy; the room seems to glow at night. The copper-clad penthouses will develop a patina over time, combining of-the-moment material with a time-worn look. Overall, the complex demonstrates how adaptive use of existing buildings can create a new identity through contemporary design.
