ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Mayor Tim Keller is looking to increase housing options in downtown. The city is taking proposals from developers interested in building in a vacant lot on the northwest corner of First and Silver.
They want to convert the property into affordable residential housing or a mixed-use project. The lot is right across from the Silver Garden Apartments and near the Silver Market, some of the first projects build as part of the revitalization effort.
