ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Renovations are complete on a big part of the old Albuquerque Rail Yards.
The blacksmith shop has been cleaned up and new windows have been put in.
The old Rail Yards have been sitting vacant ever since the city bought the property in 2007.
A few years ago, Albuquerque voters approved money to fix up the yards.
Now, the city hopes the Rail Yards will get new life as a community center.
“The hope is when the public gets down here, they get excited about it,” said Deputy Chief Gilbert Montano. “The public will be able to rent this facility if they so like for weddings, receptions, graduation parties, car shows, art shows, you know, a whole plethora of A to Z opportunities.”
A public open house is Friday from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
