$2.2M Condo for Sale at Former Scheinuk Florists Site

If you've got $2.2M dollars and a need to tap into some fond Easter memories, then has Coldwell Banker TEC Realtors got a place for you. Those of you who knew 2600 St Charles Ave before its early- to mid-aught demolition and overhaul remember Scheinuk Florists, the namesake shop of prominent florist Arthur Scheinuk. Scheinuk first opened his own floral shop in 1909 on the corner of Broadway and Panola. Within a decade he had moved shop and Broadway Florist soon became Scheinuk Florists.

What set Scheinuk apart, aside from his meticulous horticulture methods, was an Easter display chock full of bunnies. Year in and year out, tens of white, fluffy bunnies graced the Scheinuk storefront to welcome the spring holiday. Though the original building was torn down to make room for condos, the current owners of 2600 St Charles took extra care in crafting their development, earning them a New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission Merit Award in 2009. Now, one such condo is on the market. 2600 St Charles Ave #4A features regal crown molding and plenty of wooden accents to thrill, along with hardwood floors. Two balconies overlook St Charles and add a bit of peace to this top floor unit. Those worried about safety need not fret — this 3,000 square foot Garden District condo also comes with two secure parking spots, a home management system, and a fire alarm system.
