Located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, the 317K square foot building is an iconic structure for the southwestern United States. At one time the largest building in the State of New Mexico, it has an interesting architectural heritage. It was designed by Chicago-based architect Harry Weese, best known for his work on the DC metro stations, as a favor to his Navy-buddy, the head of the NM bank who commissioned the work originally.
The 7-story building features abundant concrete work for which Weese was known, in addition to a distinctively Scandinavian color palate, fixtures and unique woodwork. Even with all of this, the building maintains a strong New Mexican feel.
One very unique feature of the building is the subterranean shopping area, known as the Galleria. At one time this was Albuquerque's see and be seen location, featuring multiple restaurants, a movie theatre and musical venues. The most prominent feature of the building is its namesake, a large urban plaza that offers serenity to the workers of downtown.
Current Tenant roster includes multiple galleries, massage (yoga coming soon), homeopathic medicine, printing services Downtown Sports and Wellness, and La Esquina.
The Galleria can be accessed via subterranean tunnels to City Hall and the Convention Center, both of which offer covered parking.
The building is directly across the street from the newly remodeled Andaluz hotel, restaurant and bar. It is a block away from Albuquerque Plaza, New Mexico's dominate skyscraper, which features a Hyatt Hotel. It is also a block away from the ABQ Convention center, which begins its own remodel in March and welcomes conventioneers monthly. It is also a block away from the Federal, County and City Courthouses and Administrative buildings. It is two blocks away from Alvarado Square, NM's main rail and bus terminal, which also acts a station for the Railrunner.
