CBD & Warehouse District

Highlights

19th century brick buildings and warehouses once made up the industrial hub of New Orleans. Commerce, trade and industry thrived in the area flanked by the historic Canal Street and the Mississippi River. Today, the Warehouse District (also known as The Arts District) is a historic neighborhood filled with art galleries, museums, restaurants, shopping, and much more. Many of the warehouses have been converted into luxury condominiums

The Central Business District (CBD) was New Orleans' cultural and financial center in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Smoothie King center, countless high-rise and boutique hotels, and the recent South Market District add to the vibrant, active cultural and professional heart of the city. The historic, renovated theaters - Saenger, Orpheum and Joy - along with numerous restaurants ranging in cuisine and price, young professionals love calling the CBD and Warehouse District home.
