Across the country, urban living has become the hottest real estate trend, driven in part by the rising price of gas, boredom with the "car dependent" suburbs and a desire for young professionals to be in the center of things. Downtown Mobile also offers the greatest variety of housing options in a single neighborhood... from chic lofts to luxurious townhouses to historic single-family homes.
The commercial real estate sector has also proven to be solidly resilient. Even in the depths of the recession, top tier commercial space was more than 90 percent occupied in our city center. With more than 3 million square feet of office and retail space, configured in a great variety of choices, and with equally great access to the bedroom communities to the east and west, Downtown Mobile is uniquely prepared to welcome your business.
