The Federal Fibre Mills Condos 1107 South Peters New Orleans Warehouse District  A Little Bit of History about the Federal Fibre Mills         Designed in 1904 by architects Favrot and Livaudals the Federal Fibre Mills warehouse was completed in 1907 and used for the production of rope, largely for ships in port. It was used as a pavilion for the 1984 New Orleans World´s Fair. The old rope factory, built of heavy timber, is an interesting study of conversion efficiency.         Over one million dollars was spent on initial cleanup with a deep desire to preserve the character and flavor of both the New Orleans tan bricks and the first growth heart of Southern yellow pine. Because the building is listed on the National Register for Historic Places, strict guidelines for modification of th...

Showing the NeighborhoodsHelps in Selling CondosWarehouse District Neighborhood     Knowing the Neighborhoods when you list real estate helps buyers see the neighborhood. Many buyers in the Warehouse District and the French Quarter are going to buying for a second home. The MLS now allows agents to add up to 40 photos. After putting in about 25-30 photos for each listing all is taken care of. Lately I take photos of the many places where you can easily walk to so buyers can get a great feel for the neighborhood.      Seeing all the historic features of the Neighborhood is a big Plus. Seeing Parks,Shops, Eats and Drinks is also a great idea. These are photos I took that are near the Gallery Row Condos at 448 Julia near Magazine Street. Photos easily show the fun....
