The Maison du Parc condo development takes over sites at 822 Barracks St. and 1220 Dauphine St. that once housed the La Socíeté Hospitaliere des Dames Louisianaises, a home providing for elderly women after the Civil War that eventually became a skilled nursing facility. The Dauphine Street property was demolished to make way for some of the units, and the 1830-era Barracks Street property is being restored. A kitchen house on the property is being converted into the condo’s "entertainment center" with a wet bar and other amenities.
Units have been on the market for awhile, but they won’t be officially complete until mid-September.
The complex has 10 units, ranging from 1,700 square feet to 4,400 square feet and with prices ranging from $1.1 million-$3.25 million, ranking them among the most expensive homes for sale in New Orleans. Each unit has a balcony, private courtyard, and granite cobblestone driveway; three of the condos have private pools, but there is also a main courtyard with a pool.
