Luxe French Quarter condo in a former shoe factory hits the market

Who doesn’t want a bedroom with a mirrored wall?

A one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom condo at 220 Decatur Street is up for grabs. Bright, airy, and modern, it betrays little of the circa-1868 building’s history as a hub for the Southern Shoe Company.

The upper floors of the mixed-use building had been abandoned prior to their $7.3 million renovation in 2017, which was funded in part by federal and state historic tax credits. Now, the only remnants of the condo’s past are its brick walls, wide plank hardwood floors, and casement windows, which lend it an industrial edge—as do the 10-foot ceilings.

The rest of the finishes are luxe to the max. Stainless-steel Bosch appliances, quartz countertops, and hand-blown pendant lights bring gloss to the kitchen.

The bedroom is equally sleek, boasting a modern light fixture and selfie-ready mirrored walls. It doesn’t have any windows, making it a good choice for graveyard shift workers and other night owls.

Highlights of the bathroom include a frameless glass shower with a rainfall shower head and Italian marble surfaces. There’s also a nice-sized tub.

But some of the dwellings’s best amenities can’t be photographed. They include a level of service beyond what you’ll find in most condo buildings: housekeeping, room service, free Wi-Fi, dry-cleaning, and grocery delivery.

This pinnacle of French Quarter luxury will set you back $479,000, plus monthly HOA fees ($316/month).
