There is no lack of "luxury apartments" in New Orleans’ downtown neighborhoods, especially in the CBD and Warehouse District. But one development is trying to lure renters who might want a CBD studio across the river.
At the end of August, high-end units at a renovated Masonic lodge at 620 Opelousas St. in Algiers Point began popping up on the market. Renting for $1,300, the loft-style one-bedrooms have concrete flooring, lots of windows, sleek kitchens with stainless steel appliances, and access to a roof deck with views of the river.
At the end, the ad proposes: "Why live in the CBD, when you can live just minutes away in the tranquil historic neighborhood of Algiers Point for near half the price!"
