 St. Charles Ave. Streetcar Line



 Uptown New Orleans

 Uptown New Orleans is up the Mississippi River from the Original center of town which was the French Quarter. It follows the Mississippi River on what is the higher ground as we saw from Katrina. The major streets along the river are Tchoupitoulas Street, Magazine Street, Prytania, and St. Charles Ave. For real estate purposes the area from the Mississippi River bridge comprise the Gardner District and the uptown area. The Gardner District being older has different styles of homes

 

Colleges and Universities







 






 

The uptown area has a lot of brains at Tulane University, Loyola, and the law schools of both schools. It is an easy commute to the LSU and Tulane medical schools from this area. The housing prices get  high quickly which has made condos a more popular choice especially in this area. You will have many choices because the street car is a easy ride along St. Charles Ave. to both schools. Many of the condos are centered on St. Charles Ave and along the Magazine Street corridor. These areas will give you a great New Orleans experience and you can leave your car parked if you wish.

New Orleans Uptown Condos


 

   Many of your uptown Condos are those that have taken old homes that have been split up into condos. This area does not have a lot of old historic buildings that can be turned into condos. Many of the complexes are the  the more recent buildings of the 1950's and 1960's that were apartments. These old homes offer the high ceilings and large windows that people like. You can expect to find wood floors, balconies, porches and that historic feel. Parking gets harder to find as many of these old homes had no cars because they were not yet invented when many of these areas were developed. As real estate and the price of a single home has gotten more expensive these units have become more popular than ever especially where the locations are superior.
   You will have to choose between a smaller complex of an old home or two put togeather and larger units that were apartments dating from the 1920's to the 1960's. Both the choices will have their pluses and minuses. Its all up to what you want in a lifestyle. If you want a turnkey style then a complex may be the better choice for you. They will come in all varieties and price ranges.
