Federal Fibre Mills Condos
The Mills began operating in 1907 to manufacture ropes for ships at port and is on the National Register for Historic Places. Built of dark brick and heavy timber, the Federal Fibre Mills make a profound architectural statement. When they were converted to condominium space great care was taken to preserve the original brick and pine.
Living at the Federal Fibre Mills
This community enjoys not only the amenities that come with living in a condo, but also features that are unique to Federal Fibre Mills. Many of these units have multi-layer floor plans that add texture and variety to the living experience. There are spiral staircases and stacked loft bedrooms against the backdrop of high ceilings, exposed brickwork, and cypress beams. All 140 units of the Mills on five stories have a different floor plan. The lobby downstairs is graced with an atrium that spans all 5 levels. This is majesty. The pool at Federal Fibre Mills, as at Cotton Mill, features inlade brick. There is an abundance of trees and greenery, and an outdoor barbeque where one may relax with grilled cuisine in the evenings.
In addition to the outdoor space in the condominium, there is green space across the street where one many enjoy the sun and ambience of living in the Arts District. Life in an Arts District Condominium is full to overflowing with the good things of life: fine art, cuisine, and shopping are all a minute’s walk away. Some of the best restaurants, like Michaul’s on St. Charles, offer the best in New Orleans fair.
