Cathedral Place History

Cathedral Place Apartments were established in 1970 as a housing ministry for the Catholic Diocese of Mobile. This non-profit, high-rise apartment community now serves as housing for senior citizens, and tenants do not have to be Catholic to move in. With more than 190 apartments units, Cathedral Place is well-known in the Downtown Mobile area as an integral part of the local community.

Royal Management Company, Inc. began managing the property in 2002, and began heavy investment into building improvements. Once planning and the on-site management team from Royal Management were put in place, ground floor improvements began immediately. The Cathedral Place Apartment tower’s considerable renovations program was kicked started with landscape beautification projects and public area interior design updates. The result, an increase in the property’s value and an increase in tenant applications.

Royal Management’s strategy included applying for grants to help the property to take on a new image (through property updates and “extra touches” programs which are important to the residents and help build community). The management team also brought in a service coordinator and sales team to assist with this mission. In 2006, Royal Management entered Cathedral Place into, and was awarded, the “Emergency Capital Grant” from HUD. With this grant, elevators and emergency call systems were installed for the safety of occupants throughout the building. The grant was especially instrumental to (and well-received by) the elderly tenants with mobility challenges and disabilities.

The same year saw the Cathedral Place’s amazing achievement of receiving a superior score on their facilities audit. The on-site property management team also received high ratings for their work.

April 2010, Cathedral Place Apartments began extensive renovations and detailed improvements. In addition, funds have also been put into a reserve account for the property’s ongoing upkeep and maintenance.
