Central Business District (CBD) AKA Warehouse District
The Central Business District (often called the CBD) is located just outside of the French Quarter, between I-90 and Iberville Street. Many first time visitors will head straight to the French Quarter and infamous Bourbon Street; but a short walk to the CBD may have you second guessing where to spend your vacation time. Many buyers will also assume the CBD does not have suitable homes. On the contrary, many builders have realized the overwhelming number of professionals in need of housing near their offices and there are more and more homes for sale now in the Central Business District than ever before. The CBD features both of New Orleans’ major sports venues, The Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Smoothie King Center (originally named New Orleans Arena), 3 Theaters and many historic landmarks.
The Superdome was built in the early ‘70s and almost instantly became the pride and joy of New Orleans. It has played host to a number of Super Bowls, boxing matches, concerts and so much more. It is the most widely recognized stadium in the nation and the centerpiece of the New Orleans’ Skyline. The Arena was completed in 1999, and in 2013 the city was delighted for it to became home to The New Orleans Pelicans.
