New Orleans Warehouse District, The Stage Door Canteen at the World War II Museum

Warehouse District,Stage Door Canteen

    Last week I was invited to a treat at lunch time to visit the Stage Door Canteen for a show. Bob Hope’s daughter was the guest of honor along with all the Veterans that came.

    The World War II Museum has become a destination for many that visit New Orleans. I sell a lot of condos in the Warehouse District and walk by the Museum many times over the past 10 years. It is always bigger and better each and everytime. It’s a must see venue when in New Orleans….

 

     The Victory Belles put on a great show. My father was in the U.S. Army from 1941 unit 1963 when we moved to New Orleans. He never really talked much about the war. He did receive several bronze stars and a Purple Heart fighting in the Pacific conflict. He was also in the Korean War.  He would have been 100 years old this year. Hats off to all these guys who risked their lives for our Freedom and Safety….

Outlet Mall on the Mississippi in New Orleans

 

One of the more popular places in New Orleans for second homes is in the New Orleans Warehouse District.  One of the big reasons is that there is always a lot to do. There are more and more new things mixed in with the old. The new Outlet Mall is one of the newer attractions.

There are always the old standbys like Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar that everyone should at least try. Fulton Street is middle age but is getting better with age. Views of the Mississippi are among the most scenic in New Orleans. Here is just a touch of the Warehouse District.  Maybe you too will like a condo as a second home.

Warehouse District Church at Night

    Nights in the New Orleans Warehouse District.  The District can be very busy at times and then very busy.  These night shots just show it as a quiet but beautiful neighborhood. Its not all like that so I had to include one busy night spot on St. Charles Avenue.

The New Orleans Warehouse District is quiet and colorful on a Saturday Morning.  A few people walking about but its almost empty.  The streetcar was full with people going places.  This is a busy area at night during the weekend and on week days.

The Federal Fibre Mills Condos, A Warehouse District Condo Delight…..

1107 S. Peters Courtyard and Pool Area, Federal Fibre Mills Condos

 

The Federal Fibre Mills located in the New Orleans Warehouse District is one of my favorite condo associations and historic renovations in the area.  The exposed beams, exposed brick, high ceilings, large windows couple with an outstanding courtyard and lobby make this hard to beat.

It was built as a rope factory in 1896 as it was close to the river and the Cotton Mills that surrounded it.  It was later to become an ingradual part of the 1984 World’s Fair before being developed into condos.

World War II Museum, Boeing Exhibit Taking Shape….One going up and one came down…

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

 

 

      The World War II Museum is growing by leaps and bounds in popularity.  Its also growing with more exhabits such as the new Boeing Exhibit is beginning to take shape where there was once a parking lot.  A parking lot just went up where some old warehouse once stood until a month ago.  The Museum is a destination in itself and a great addition to the New Orleans Warehouse District.

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.

Leather Goods Factory to Condos at 404 Notre Dame in the New Orleans Warehouse District

Friday, March 9th, 2012

    The Whitney and Sloo Manufacturing Plant and Warehouse located at 404 Notre Dame was once a leather processing plant.  Many years later it is a condo complex in the New Orleans Warehouse District. 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. You can see more of this Condo #18 at 404 Notre Dame in New Orleans.
