This one is being sold furnished for $320,413. Over time many of the owners have upgraded their units to look much like this one.

Lobby at the Federal Fibre Mills Condos is a work of art….New Orleans Warehouse District

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012



       The Federal Fibre Mills Condos Lobby has to rank at the top of all lobbies in the New Orleans Warehouse District. Origionaly built as a rope factory in 1900 it later served as part of the Worlds Fair in 1984.  This building housed the German Beer Garden during that time period.  The monorail also came through the building an was most likely a popular stop and stop in those days.



Federal Fibre Mills in the New Orleans Warehouse District, Warehouse to Condo in a Historic Style

Friday, March 30th, 2012


             The Federal Fibre Mills in the New Orleans Warehouse District was one of the first Warehouse Conversions in the Warehouse District.  It was once a rope factory built in about 1900 near the commerce on the Mississippi River in an industrial section of town.  It was also converted into apartments for the 1984 Worlds Fair.  It served as a German Beer Garden and the Monorail actually ran through the building.

          The developer maintained all the exposed brick and beams into  the many floor plans of the current condos.  Lots of different floor plans in the condos today.  Located a block from the New Orleans Convention Center.

The Cotton Mills Condos, An historic Warehouse Turned into Condos…..

Friday, November 18th, 2011

    The  Cotton Mills dates back to about 1900 when it was a mill turning cotton to to all kinds of fibers.  The Mississippi River was several blocks away.  Most of the Cotton was shipped down the Mississippi River to New Orleans for transport and fabrication to ship to ports all over the world.

    In the late 1980’s HRI developed the building into apartments that were rented as demand for housing picked up in the Warehouse District.  Then in 2004 they started selling the 288 units as condos in four phases.  At this time many of the units were upgraded to reflect the times.

    Located at 920 Poeyfarre, its a block from Magazine Street and the World War II Museum.  Hard to believe the amount of changes in the last 5-6 years.  Love the building and think that has helped me sell over 30 condos in the building.  I am even losing count. Check my last listing #221 Cotton Mill Condos.




Bemis Bag Company, From Bags to Condos on Julia Street…..

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

      The Bemis Bag Company moved to New Orleans in 1891 to set up shop making bags of all kinds.  Being a port city it was big business for a port city.  These were all cloth bags for shipping bulk cargo.  I doubt that this was the origional building but it could be next door.  I am guessing this is much younger than the origional building.  The building is now home to Julia Place Condos at 333 Julia in the New Orleans Warehouse District.

Warehouse District Nite 2005

      In October of 2005 after Katrina things were really quite all over New Orleans.  The Warehouse District got no flooding and very little damage over all.  There were just not many people around and not that many lights on at night.  It was an feeling almost being too calm.  This was taken from the deck and pool area of the Gallery Row condos located at 448 Julia Street during that period.

Cotton Mills Condos Smoke Stack in the New Orleans Warehouse District

        Many of the old factories make up the historic feel of the New Orleans Warehouse District have been converted to other uses.  This is the Cotton Mills Condos which around 1900 was a Cotton Gin and storage area.  The port of New Orleans was an ideal place as shipping down the Mississippi River was very efficient form of transportation.   This is the old smoke stack left in tack that enhances that feel.  The windows in this unit are at least 9 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
