The City of Mobile, Burton Property Group and Kessler Capital announced plans to develop Mobile’s only mixed-use waterfront entertainment and hospitality development, combining a hotel, residences, offices, retail, bars and restaurants. Visit Mobile is pleased to have worked alongside these organizations throughout years of development, ahead of this announcement. 

River Walk Plaza is to be located on City of Mobile property on the opposite side of Water Street from the end of Dauphin Street. The new development will sit adjacent to the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center — bookending the GulfQuest Maritime Museum and Cooper Riverside Park. This project will leverage the only available site in downtown Mobile that can truly connect the downtown entertainment district to the waterfront. 

River Walk Plaza is intended to be a destination venue to experience living, working, dining, meeting, interacting with the waterfront and entertainment in the rich historical and modern culture of downtown Mobile. The development will include a luxury hotel and condos, Class A office space, and multiple food and beverage, retail, and entertainment options. To allow for easier access, the project will be engineered to provide vehicular and pedestrian access over Water Street and the CSX train tracks.  

This project, which is in its early stages of development, is aiming for a groundbreaking in 2025. Design and conceptual elements will incorporate stakeholder feedback and are subject to change over time. Renderings for the project are available at
