Just under 160 multifamily units within a four-story building could soon see construction inside the Journal Center business park, around 9 miles to northeast of downtown Albuquerque.
That park is distinguished for its neighborhood-like setting, with hundreds of trees lining a series of streets and trails.
The project, which belongs to the Albuquerque-based Titan Development, will go up on a currently vacant 6.5-acre site at 7800 Headline Boulevard NE, and will also include a fitness center, swimming pool, and spa.
A recent staff report for the Albuquerque Development Review Board noted that “due to the site’s location within a major employment center with no surrounding residential uses, the proposed development will have little impact to the surrounding area.”
The Board subsequently gave its approval to the project.
The roughly 300-acre Journal Center was created in 1979 by the Albuquerque Journal, and continues to serve as the home for that paper, as well as a number of other office and retail interests.
According to reports, Titan’s Journal Center Lofts will be the first multifamily project in the business park.
In a statement, Josh Rogers, director of development for Titan, said of the project: “Bringing urban housing to a suburban office park is incredibly exciting for the Journal Center and the City of Albuquerque.”
