The "L’Oregon - Colorado" residence is located in Nice, avenue des Baumettes, number 9 and 11.
The building permit was deposited in December 1956 and delivered on January 28, 1957, on behalf of the real estate company “Immobiliere des 9 and 11 avenue des Baumettes”.
The building was completed in 1958 by the architect Roger Verge. With its 5 floors, it is built on a plot of 1064sqm. Originally, it included 27 housing lots and offices (tax center). Today, 31 units are served by 2 entrances, each with an elevator, one in the south called "Oregon", the other in the north called "Colorado". To the east, the facade overlooks avenue des Baumettes; to the south, it is bordered by the public passage “Montee du Musee”.
In Nice, famous names are often found in the history of properties. This is also the case here, where the origin of the property leads us to Count Alexandre de Toulouse Lautrec, exactly to his widow Dominique Babanine called "Dina", herself a cousin of Marie Bashkirtseff. Guy de Maupassant, whose mother lived in the Baumettes district, visited him when he came to Nice.
Nowadays, the location in the residential Baumettes area, close to the seaside, shops and the tram, make the “Oregon & Colorado” building a privileged place of life or vacation.
