In case you missed it, the Albuquerque Journal had an excellent piece on the revitalization of the Central Avenue corridor. Downtown is being revitalized. And Symphony Tower could easily become a part of that revitalization.

Sharing this vision of resuscitating the corridor, other development teams are thinking big, with hotels, apartments, eateries and breweries, and retail spaces.
