Residence Josephine: 2100 St. Thomas St. in the Irish Channel

Residence Josephine is in the heart of the Lower Garden District, with all of the convenience of quick access to other parts of the city combined with the ease of walkability to Magazine Street's vibrant shopping, dining and entertainment. The 28-unit building, starting at $279,000, features lifestyle amenities like sweeping views of downtown New Orleans, the Mississippi River, neighborhood parks and on-site gardens, pool and covered entertaining area, constantly accessible video security system and professional condominium management. Units will be available for viewing by appointment with brokers at McEnery & Company.

“In developing Residence Josephine, we saw that the market was demanding housing that was turnkey and convenient for those who commute to jobs around New Orleans or travel in for visits from out of town,” said Chris Bellone, lead developer of Residence Josephine. “This development is an opportunity for people to live in a central location while enjoying desirable lifestyle amenities, all with the ease of a fully managed condominium atmosphere.”

Residence Josephine offers a professional condo management company with online portal for accessing information and making dues payments. While on property, owners will enjoy lifestyle amenities like on-site green space, an outdoor living room with pool and grilling area perfect for hosting parties and secure gated parking with assigned spaces for each unit. Owners are also just a few blocks away from the central artery of Tchoupitoulas Street for quick access to the French Quarter, Warehouse District, downtown, Uptown, Jefferson and surrounding parishes. 

The building was developed by Spartan Construction, Melancon Ortega Design, Steve Finegan Architects and Fathom 4.

Low condominium dues ($265.51 monthly) include interior and exterior property maintenance and upkeep, hazard and liability insurance, professional management, pool and outdoor living area maintenance, regular landscaping service, property insurance, common area electricity and water costs. Reserve funds generated from the dues ensure that there are adequate reserve funds for gate maintenance, elevator maintenance and structural components.

There are two dedicated-ADA units with accessible entrances, wide doorways and hallways, accessible kitchens and bathrooms. There is an on-site gated parking lot, wireless video security system and state-of-the art fire alarm and sprinkler system and all-new efficient construction including a sustainable storm water drainage system designed in accordance with New Orleans comprehensive zoning ordinance (CZO)

Residence Josephine includes finishes sourced and designed by Monica Melancon of Melancon Ortega Designs. Design elements in every unit at Residence Josephine include modern walls and flooring, quartz countertops, modern appliances, LED lighting and high-end bathroom finishes.

With each unit sold, Residence Josephine will make a donation of $175 to St. Michael’s Special School and $175 to Kingsley House.

The Irish Channel neighborhood was originally settled largely by immigrants from Ireland in the early 19th century. These Irish immigrants arrived primarily to dig the New Basin Canal. New Orleans subsequently had the largest Irish population in the American South and these Irish immigrants were predominantly Roman Catholic.

St. Alphonsus Church, constructed in 1855 by the Redemptorist Fathers, served the religious and cultural needs of this Irish immigrant population. In 1874, a painting of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was brought to St. Alphonsus and a National Shrine established. For generations, Irish parishioners would participate in novenas. These services were so well attended that the city placed additional street cars in service to carry the large number of attendees.

Parades and parties are held on and around St. Patrick's Day, which are enjoyed by many locals whether they are of Irish ancestry or not. Built on the city's old high ground, the neighborhood escaped the catastrophic flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
