Steeg Law is pleased to announce that the firm is handling the condominium conversion for the new 731 St. Charles Condominiums. The project, which is currently under construction, is located on the site of the Washington Artillery Hall in the Lafayette Square Historic District near some of New Orleans’ best restaurants.
731 St Charles will be part new construction and a complete transformation and expansion of a masonry and steel office building into 67 luxury residences that will be offered in a variety of one- and two-bedroom floor plans. A pool, deck, two landscaped courtyards, rooftop amenity with dog walk and a state-of-the-art fitness room will be among the upscale amenities in the 5-story mixed-use building.
731 St. Charles Condominiums has a colorful history. The original building on the site was the Exposition Hall, built in 1865 and used for the 1872 Grand Industrial Exposition. In 1873, the site’s rich Carnival history began as its grand hall hosted the King of Carnival’s first Reception Ball. In 1878, the Washington Artillery bought the building for its new arsenal and renamed it the “Washington Artillery Hall.” This armory housed everything from cannons, rifles, sabers, uniforms and ammunition while boasting its own shooting range. From 1879-1906, the Washington Artillery Hall served as the Carnival Palace of Rex and his royal consort, and here, Mardi Gras royalty would gather here to eat, drink and dance the night away.
