A Request for Proposals has been issued by the City of Albuquerque, along with the city’s Department of Family and Community Services, for the construction of new a mixed-use, mixed-income housing development.
Project site is 5 acres located at 3524 4th Street NW, bordering what is known as the North Corridor Metropolitan Redevelopment Area.
That area, some 2 miles to the north of downtown Albuquerque, with a large number of garages and warehouses, has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years with infill development and new apartment projects.
The L-shaped property, formerly containing facilities for the Brown Construction Company, was purchased through the city’s Workforce Housing Trust Funds in 2015 for $1.1 million, with subsequent city documents saying that the site “will be developed as a high-quality, mixed-use site.”
A small number of existing buildings on the site have since been demolished.
As planned, at least 30% of the units in the complex will be designated as affordable housing.
The Request for Proposals has a submission deadline of February 2, 2021.
