New Orleans rent comparison: What $1,700 gets you

Luxury apartments in the French Quarter

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a semi-regular column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today, we're looking at apartments renting around $1,700 in the French Quarter.

↑ For $1,625/month, you can rent this second-floor unit that is located at the corner of Royal and Governor Nicholls streets. Measuring at 850 square feet, this home has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Undergoing renovations in 2012, it has exposed-brick walls and vaulted ceilings. It comes with an in-unit, stacked washer and dryer. A shared courtyard sits at its rear. Both cats and dogs are allowed under the rental agreement.

This 19th-century loft on Ursulines Avenue asks $1,650/month. At 695 square feet, this home keeps it simple with one bedroom and one bathroom. Highlights include its reclaimed floors, 12-foot ceilings, exposed beams, and French doors. Its renovated kitchen has stainless steel appliances, pendant lighting, and granite countertops. A large brick courtyard sits at this home’s rear. The owner mentions that off-street parking is optional. Both cats and dogs are allowed in this unit.

This luxury unit located at 221 Chartres Street, asks $1,650/month. Considerably roomier at 700 square feet, this home has one bedroom and one bathroom. It has an open living space that blends into its simple kitchen, complete with an attractive wooden beam that separates the two. Formerly a warehouse, this complex boasts a sizable rooftop terrace. The owner allows both cats and dogs under the rental agreement.

↑ You can rent this first-floor apartment at the Historic Madame X Mansion for $1,650/month. Ranking as the largest on this list at 950 square feet, this home has one bedroom and one bathroom. Check out this unit’s hardwood flooring, soaring ceilings, pocket doors, and fanlight transom. Its kitchen lacks space, but that’s made up for this home’s open-floor living room. On-site laundry is available. The renter can bring both cats and dogs into the unit.

↑ The most expensive unit on this list is this fully-furnished luxury condo for rent on Royal Street that asks $1,800/month. This 710-square-foot unit has one bedroom and one bathroom.
