Downtown everything’s waiting for you
The CBD and Warehouse District neighborhoods of New Orleans were an actual place for manufacturing and warehousing. After many years of suppliers moving to other parishes, buildings were sitting empty. That is until the 1984 World’s Fair came along. That fair changed the landscape for the Warehouse District forever. Developers came in and began renovating these former industrious buildings into commercial units, restaurants, and condos.
The great thing about living in the CBD or the Warehouse District is that you probably don’t have to travel far for work. Wine bars, high-end eateries, art galleries, and tons of festivals are within your reach.
Condos will likely have to be your residence of choice, as it is extremely rare to find a single-family home here. More and more condo buildings, with extravagant amenities to boot, are popping up every day. They can cover many types of budgets and lifestyles.
Lagniappe: Now a mixed-use neighborhood, the CBD was originally developed as the largely-residential Faubourg Ste. Marie.
