Located at 201 Magazine St, Merchant Lofts is situated at the heart of the Central Business District (CBD). Originally known as the "Faubourg St. Marie", the CBD was the site of the city's first expansion outside of its original French Quarter boundaries in 1803.
Merchant Lofts sits within one block of both the Canal Street and St. Charles Street Car Lines. Residents can step out the door and ride North through Mid-City to City Park or West through the CBD uptown to the Garden District, the Universities, and the Carrollton neighborhood. The entire city is virtually 1 block away.
New Orleans prides itself on being a bicycle friendly city and sports a League of American Bicyclist Bronze level ranking. Located on the Common St. bike lane, 1 block off Canal Street, Merchant Lofts is connected to a network of over 40 miles of bicycle lanes-with 30 more miles currently under construction-giving residents safe and hassle-free access to the city.
From the rooftop veranda residents can survey the bustle of Canal Street and decide whether to shop at Saks and the Shops at Canal Place or get lost in the wonders of the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.
Merchant Lofts residents are always a short walk from the world famous French Quarter and one-of-a-kind music, entertainment, dining, and architecture. Should you choose to take-in the sounds of Bourbon Street or enjoy an unforgettable meal and a quiet, evening stroll by the cathedral, the unmistakable heart of our city is at your doorstep.
