Is Downtown Albuquerque On The Rise?
Play • 34 min

Downtown Albuquerque is the subject of a lot of hot takes. We're pretty sure every NMNP listener has one. Whether you love cruisin' Central or avoid it altogether, the government and private developers see downtown as an important part of Albuquerque. And with that in mind, plenty of groups are spending big money on projects there.

What are some of those projects, you ask? Glad you did, because this week's episode is all about what's going up in downtown and the greater downtown area. An expert on the subject matter, founder, writer, and editor of the Downtown Albuquerque News, Peter Rice joins the podcast this week for a frank discussion about the state of downtown ABQ. What's next for a possible soccer stadium? What's Space Valley all about? Could a new bike and pedestrian trail take shape soon? More apartments? A new hotel? And what would YOU do with 10 billion dollars for Albuquerque's downtown? We're talking about it all this week in what one could call a "Downtown Albuquerque nerdcast."
