The habitually growing Meow Wolf has announced plans to add on to its busy manufacturing facility in Santa Fe.
The company, which is based in the city, wants to build a new four-story, 75,000 square foot addition to the plant it operates at 2600 Camino Entrada on the southwest side of Santa Fe.
That current plant measures 52,000 square feet and was purchased two years ago by Meow Wolf. Before that, the building served as a manufacturing plant for the Caterpillar equipment company.
If approved, the new expansion would more than double the footprint of Meow Wolf’s manufacturing space.
The announcement of Meow Wolf’s facility expansion comes on the heels of the company’s current construction of a new 90,000 square foot location in Denver.
Additional Meow Wolf sites are planned for Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Washington.
The company has not yet submitted its plans for the plant expansion to the City of Santa Fe, but is expected to shortly.
Launched in 2008, Meow Wolf offers a series of interactive and immersive art exhibitions that have won the company worldwide acclaim.
Three years ago, a Los Angeles Times reporter provided a taste of what a Meow Wolf visit is like: “Step into the living room and you discover the fireplace is a portal leading to a cavern of glowing crystals. Climb through the refrigerator and you end up in a futuristic travel agency staffed by a holographic extraterrestrial.”
