All manner of housing types can be found in the side streets around the Ivory Triangle.

The gray stone rowhouses at 200-204 Steins Street exemplify a phenomena particular to Carondelet. Built of locally quarried limestone, usually by German immigrants, at least half a dozen similar houses survive in the southern sections of Carondelet. They typically date as far back as the 1840s. This group, known simply as the Steins Row or Stone Row, is from 1851, built by a local brewer. Long neglected, they were saved from demolition by a determined local group and renovated after a fire in the late 1990s.
