I would recommend the reserve at cedar lodge. Beautiful place pretty close to lsu. Located in a great area too, walking distance to shopping centers, whole foods, and restaurants. If you need help, just let me know.

The condos near the lakefront are fetching great rents and the prices are reasonable to buy a condo there.

The folks who are suggesting downtown, CBD, wharehouse didstrict, etc - apparently think the dental school is downtown, which it is not.

Not sure if you are from this area, so let's just start with your definition of 'safe.' Living in this city you have to be on your guard regardless of where you live. And the dental school is not in the best area, being near gentilly.

If I were you, i would try to rent in Lakeview. As safe as they come around here, one exit removed formthe dental school in I-610, and they have plenty of 'doubles'.

Good luck.

The MidCity/Bayou St John neighborhood is close to the LSU Dental School with a high demand for rental property however there's not a high concentration of condos in this neighborhood. You might want to also consider the Warehouse District/CBD. I'd be happy to help you if you would like to contact me at 504.251.0385 or

Warehouse District. Call me at your convenience and we can discuss resale/rental rates. This area is the best investment area and hot spot for high end rentals. 504-617-0517
