Sales of condominiums in the French Quarter are at an all-time high. The chart and table below shows average condominium pricing on a price per square foot basis from 2000 to 2015. After rising rapidly from 2000 thru 2005, the market saw a downturn during the Post-Katrina era followed by the economic downturn.
