I saw both your posts. A friend lived in 1205 St. Charles while doing her residency and said she could hear her neighbors through the walls. Otherwise, It is a great location-- convenient to many things locals love about the City. There are a couple of condo buildings with fewer units close by that may be a good fit for you. For example, 1115 Prytania Street is a historic building around the corner from 1205 St. Charles that is solid brick -- I lived there for 8 years and really enjoyed the convenience of the location coupled with the smaller 12-unit community.
