Overview

SCADpro’s collaboration with Downtown Mobile Alliance researched and reimagined ten different architectural sites around the Downtown Mobile area, ranging from abandoned historic theaters to run-down auto shops to beloved homes in need of a bit of love. The team was able to breathe life back into the future of these buildings over ten weeks of intensive research, design, and passion. Each reimagination stays true to Mobile’s historical French influence and regional gulf coast styles while creating new purposes for each building that will further enhance Mobile’s strong sense of community. 

Challenges

One

No particular target market or markets, but mixed-use is good and residential is of particular interest for upper floors.

Two

Three

As close to code compliant as possible and respecting nearby sensitive historic, low-density neighborhoods.

Create revitalization plans that are Downtown Development District (Form-based zoning code) compliant, inspirational, and achievable design concepts for the sites.

Our Goal

Revitalizing the built environment in Downtown Mobile through design and planning in order to achieve a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for all user demographics.
