New Orleans Uptown Condos
Some Ideas of smaller units
The condos in Uptown New Orleans come in all shapes and sizes in a variety of locations. I have given a larger review of the larger complexes but this is some ideas of the types of units that are available in the uptown market. You will find old homes, apartment complexes, 4-plexes, doubles, stores, schools, hotels, and more that have been converted. Many will be historic buildings and many will look just like a 1960's apartment complex. Some of the nicer things are the historic homes on St. Charles Ave. and some of the more historic areas of uptown.
The condos will have a varying types of amenities. The condo fees still cover insurance and upkeep in all cases. Most will furnish water and common area upkeep. Some units will have parking and others will not. I will give you a
variety of examples of what you may expect to find.
Turn of the Century Apartment turned into historic condos.
4900 St. Charles Ave. , Casa Grande Condos
Casa Grande Condos at 4900 St. Charles Ave. One of the first conversions of an old apt house converted into condos about 20 years ago. Great location but many of the units are dated and do not have washer and dryer in the units.Parking and storage.
3308 Pytania, 12 Unit complex near Touro Infirmry
Small but spacious, every unit is on a corner and its been redone.
Surprised that you get a brand new pool, not that common for a developer
The condos at 3308 Pytania in Uptown New Orleans is a 12 unit 3 story 12 unit complex in a great location not far from St. Charles Ave. You are near the Touro Hospital and Superior Grill. The units are all corner units with plenty of windows and light. The secure units are off a rather large hallway. There are completely redone with wood floors, new kitchens, washer and dryer, decent closets, and updated bathrooms. This looks like a 1920's apartment complex that is turned into modern condos. The have a brand new pool in the rear with area for Bar-B-Que. The one downside is that there is only street parking. The area is fine so parking is not a problem.
These are currently being marketed by Latter & Blum but are of my best picks in the area for this price range and neighborhood.
Conversion of Mansion into condos plus the building below.
St. Charles Ave near Napoleon Ave. where a developer took two large homes and converted them not condos of varying sizes and values. There is parking along with several townhome styles. This is rare and unusual on St. Charles Ave. You coould never tell driving by that these were condos.
These are condos on Napolean Ave. where the developer that was able to buy 3-4 doubles and turn them into a condo complex . This preserved the historic nature of the homes. He added an iron gate for privacy and has angle parking off the street. They still look like homes but are condos that look like New Orleans.
Large uptown double that was converted into 2 condos that was a shotgun double. These were large units that had the feel of a pair of town homes.
Ambrose Condos on Magazine Street , Two Historic buildings w/parking
The developer of Ambrose Condos at 2415 magazine Street took two building and converted them into 19 condos with charm. There are 7 on the corner of Second and Magazine and 12 in the 2415 Magazine. Parking is behind the 2514 buildings. Some have balconies, patios, and the old historic pluses of large windows and high ceilings. It is in a great neighborhood.
In the New Orleans market you have a lot of historic Uptown New Orleans homes and apartment complexes that have been turned into condos. This historic type of condo is much more like living in an old home with the high ceilings, large porches, common yards, plenty of light and large spaces. You just pay a lot less! The unit I just sold with Lana Sackett to a new medical student attending Tulane University this fall was located at 2512 Magazine Street in the Garden District.
The Livaudais House features 8 condos of varying sizes and types are located among single family homes worth millions and a block or two from the local coffee shops. its also with walking distance for grocery shopping and much more. You can walk to the St. Charles Ave. Street cars and are about 25 blocks from the French Quarter. You can be at Tulane the Med. School which is downtown in 15 minutes tops.
The 2512 Magazine condo has one very large master and a smaller bedroom on the other side of the condo which would be perfect for a room mate. The kitchen was updated, the hardwood floors and old fireplaces really brought that historic condo to life. The secure entrance and parking spot on the side of the unit was a big plus. Jogging and pets are allowed. Everything is within walking distance and viewing the nearby homes and gardens is free. Read the rest of this entry »
