If you’ve ever wanted to embrace luxury living in the heart of New Orleans, The Residences at 917 Conti are the ideal opportunity.

Located in a historic, century-old building that has been outfitted with modern amenities, The Residences at 917 Conti has features not often found in the French Quarter, such as garage parking availability, elevator access to all floors, private patios, a 50-foot tall water feature in the central courtyard, fire pits, hot tubs, swimming pools, a fitness center, and more.

“This is the best of the best. You just don’t find what we have in these residences anywhere else in the French Quarter,” said developer Jonathan Weber. “You have so many features on site and at the same time, the views are pretty spectacular. It really is unlike anything else on the residential market.”

The Residences at 917 Conti feature 16 units in a mixture of one, two, and three bedroom floorplans ranging from 722 to 2,102 living square feet. Each unit features elegant finishes such as Italian porcelain floors, quartz and marble countertops, sleek European-style cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances. The floorplans include three penthouses, which have additional features such as window walls, premium appliance packages from Subzero, Wolf, and Asko, Wolf gas cooktops, tray ceilings, and LED recessed lighting.

“Everything inside each unit is state-of-the-art, and the outdoor features are just as wonderful,” Weber said. “Everybody wants to have a patio or balcony if they can, so that was important to us to incorporate. It’s not always August in New Orleans. We have plenty of times in the year when the weather is gorgeous and people want to be outside, so we made sure to make that happen.”

Other features inside each condo include spa-like bathrooms with glass showers, programmable comfort settings, and soaking tubs, walk-in closets, low voltage wiring for high-speed internet connectivity, and on-demand hot water access via energy-saving tankless water heaters.

As for the building itself, Weber said the original exterior walls and warehouse metal windows were kept intact, giving it an authenticity that cannot be replicated. However, it has been updated with new plumbing, electrical, and air conditioning systems to ensure each resident and their guests have maximum comfort. Other new upgrades to the building include steel stud and concrete floor and ceiling construction for soundproofing, as well as energy-efficient hurricane glass and doors.

“When people typically buy in a historic building in the French Quarter, it comes with the 100-year-old infrastructure inside,” Weber said. “We wanted to make sure we had the best of the best so that our residents can enjoy maintenance-free living for years to come.”

Weber said the prime location of The Residences at 917 Conti makes it desirable for those from other parts of the world who want a second home in New Orleans, as well as locals who want to make one of the units their permanent home. Condo owners operate a sophisticated latch system connected to a mobile app, so they can remotely lock and unlock their doors while away if they want to let friends or relatives use their unit for a New Orleans getaway.

Weber added that many people are drawn to the unique combination of being close to the liveliness and entertainment of the French Quarter, but far enough away to enjoy privacy and quiet when the time comes to unwind.

“We are two blocks from Bourbon Street, but you don’t hear any of the noise at night,” Weber said. “When you want to be in the middle of the action, it’s right there. Then, when you want to relax, you can just walk home.”
