Orleans Properties


NEW ORLEANS — Orleans Property, a local real estate development company, that expanded one of its French Quarter condo developments into the adjourning building last year, is placing more units for sale this week in light of a brisk first quarter.

220 Decatur, an abandoned French Quarter building, was developed in 2012 into 16 luxury residences on the upper floors and the ground floor was put back into commerce utilizing one space as Dollz & Dames , which is nationally recognized for its female retro and vintage clothing accessories and shoes. City Segway Tours, which has operations in Washington DC, San Francisco, Chicago Berlin and Munich, moved into the other commercial space in July of 2012 and continues to do great showcasing the city of New Orleans to thousands of tourists a year.

In 2016, Orleans Properties acquired the adjoining building and started developing 6 additional luxury condominium units and an additional ground floor commercial space which has recently been leased  by the New Orleans Steamboat Company/Grayline Tours and used as a ticketing office for tours and excursions.

With 3 units closing within 2 weeks, the owner, Christian Cancienne, is placing additional units on the market this week due to increased interest and offers on the currently listed units. “After a weak 4th Quarter and a sluggish January, we have really seen an uptick in showings and requests for information on these units so we think the time is right to add more inventory. The French Quarter market is definitely gaining traction.” says Cancienne.  “This area of Decatur Street is very popular with tourists and locals alike, thanks to recent renovations and newly opened retail shops, tour shops  and restaurants and, of course, the always popular House of Blues right across the street.”

These units will be premiered this week, with an open house for the public to view the new listings during French Quarter Fest on Thursday and Friday  April 12 and 13 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. 

“Opening these units to the public during an event where both locals and visitors gather to experience the best of the French Quarter allows one to see how exciting the French Quarter lifestyle can be” says Cancienne.

“Each unit has been customized with its own unique features, so everyone can find a place that matches their style” says Christian Cancienne, owner of Orleans Properties. “The units are equipped with upscale finishes, stainless steel appliances, oversized windows, custom cabinets and closets, hand selected marble baths and much more.”

220 Decatur was developed with modern conveniences in mind. The property offers secured access with video entry systems, approved housekeeping service, room service from local restaurants and full service maintenance.

The building has rich history dating back to the 1800s when it was constructed for the Southern Shoe Company. 220 Decatur is located in the most desirable area of the French Quarter, with several restaurants, shops, House of Blues, and entertainment venues all on one block. Within two blocks, you’ll find Canal Place Mall, Aquarium, IMAX Theater, Harrah’s Casino, spas, art & antique galleries, the Mississippi River, as well as the world famous Bourbon street.
