The Old Audubon Building on Canal Street in New Orleans, Over 100 years Old…

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

 

 

       The Audubon Building in New Orleans at 931 Canal Street is now the Saints Hotel.  It just became a hotel in the last couple of years.  It was finished in about 1909 and was primarily offices for business, doctors and dentist.  In those days people went downtown for a lot of things.

       The  nine story building was tall in its day.  The builders did spend a lot of time on the details such as the roof.  These are now like works of art. Audubon Building See More

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.

Its a five story building which is normal for the time.  This was an area of New Orleans where manufacturing was concentrated along the Mississippi River.  You can see more Warehouse District condos at www.neworleanscondos.net to get a better idea of the transformation of the area.

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.
