The Third & Central Redevelopment Project is located at a prominent intersection in downtown Albuquerque. The Owner had purchased 3 connected buildings with the intent to reinforce the ongoing effort to revitalize the downtown. The adaptive reuse completed by DWL/NM purposefully sought to interact with the street scene with large windows that encouraged visual and physical engagement with views from the inside out and vision into the building from the street and sidewalk. A small pocket courtyard and second story outside dining balcony overlooking the street below provides another layer of opportunity to connect and invigorate the downtown.
