When local developer Tony Gelderman and his wife Katherine dropped $1.8-million on this Warehouse District corner building at Julia and Magazine Streets in 2010, it was in a serious state of disrepair. A coffee factory from the 1840s, it was also once an undertaker's office (Jefferson Davis was embalmed here!), and after a hardcore renovation/restoration project, it's 450 Julia, high dollar luxury apartments. Of the nine units in the building, there are five left and the most expensive one ($5,775 per month) was already scooped up. The rental above, apartment 3E, is going for $4,920. The 1,702-square foot space has two bedrooms, two fulls baths and one half, and a 242-square foot terrace.
↑ Unit 3F is a tad cheaper than its almost-twin seen above, asking $4,750 per month. It also has two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and it's 1,960-square feet. These rentals are in the "reverse duplex" style. The kitchen and living areas are on the third floor and bedrooms on the second. The ground floor is home to Peche, Donald Link's latest restaurant, and Octavia Art Gallery.
↑ Here's apartment 2B, going for $4,375 a month. It has a loft-style floor plan, 17-foot ceilings and the one-bedroom, two-bath rental is 1,702-square feet.
↑ The cheapest option available in 450 Julia right now? Unit 3D, another reverse duplex plan apartment that's two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, 1,172-square feet, and $4,275 a month.
