Adjacent to the Central Business District in downtown New Orleans, the Warehouse District is in the midst of major residential and commercial redevelopment.  Quickly becoming the place to be in New Orleans, the Warehouse District is a vibrant neighborhood characterized by historic architecture, large and open buildings, dozens of art galleries, world famous cuisine and high end condos, apartments and shopping.

True to its name, the Warehouse District served as an industrial area for most of its history.  With a great supply of wharves and direct access to the Mississippi River, the area had prosperous periods until demand for its infrastructure waned during and after the Great Depression.  Redevelopment efforts were begun for the World’s Fair, which was hosted by New Orleans in 1984, and they haven’t stopped since.
