The Avanyu Plaza, on 12th Street just north of I-40, is destined to be a business & cultural Corridor like no other, right in the heart of Albuquerque. The property is owned by the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico and located across the street from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. In 1976, the Pueblo communities came together with the vision of providing economic and employment opportunities for Pueblo and local community members.
Now, we are transforming this area into a vibrant new neighborhood, hosting dozens of enterprises including office and commercial tenants, lodging, retail operations, food service, and security operations. There is also a beautiful outdoor area which will host cultural gatherings and outdoor markets designed to attract both locals and visitors to Albuquerque.
The project will have far-reaching benefits for Albuquerque and will set a new standard for collaboration between local and tribal governments working toward mutually beneficial development.
