Albuquerque Deserves Great Streets!

Posted on May 6, 2008 at 4:21pm 31 Comments

If you think like I do then you'll want to come out and support the passage of the Great Streets Facility Plan. A hearing with the EPC is scheduled for this Thursday, May 8th from 3:30pm to 6:30 in the Plaza del Sol building at 2nd and Roma downtown.

The Great Streets Facility Plan would help guide the design of future as well as existing streets around Albuquerque. Keeping more than just cars in mind, the plan calls for wider sidewalks, slightly narrower car lanes, more trees, more… Continue

With the news that Trader Joe's is opening their second Albuquerque location in the Uptown mall, I thought it was time to really visualize a grocery downtown. Now I could go for a TJ's, a Sunflower Market (love that place), or a locally owned store like the Co-op, just as long as we get some healthy food DOWNTOWN. And I thought the empty lot on Central between 6th and 7th would be a great location. There is plenty of space, enough for parking and some residential units (gotta love the… Continue

The Possibilities 7*

The lively discussion a couple of weeks ago concerning the re-striping of Lead and Coal was great. It seems most people supported the idea of a dedicated bike lane, but some were unconvinced that turning these streets into two-lanes (with a lane for parking) was a good one. The bottom line for me is this: we all pay taxes for roads, so why not make these streets more pedestrian friendly? If you need to zip around town in your car, use the freeway. These streets are in a residential area, and… Continue

The Possibilities 6.5

With the news that the city council approved the funds to start work on Lead and Coal avenues, I decided to focus the next few weeks to those two thoroughfares. In case you haven't heard, Lead and Coal will be re-striped to hold two traffic lanes, a dedicated bike lane (yay!) and a parking lane. They will both stay one way streets, but hopefully with one less travel lane, cars will travel a bit slower. I also think they could use a stoplight at Edith and a few more crosswalks. Lead and Coal… Continue

This site, just south of Central on Broadway, is actually two buildings. The Storehouse next door is part of the lot, but this amazing brick building is where I focused my attention. I envision some sort of art center like Harwood. It would be big enough to have art studios, a gallery, a performing arts space and maybe even a cafe. The windows are huge and would let lot's of light in. There is a parking lot across the street for visitors. The back portion of the roof is flat and could house a… Continue

Hey Brenden,

I just meet up with Rhys in DC and he mentioned your photoshop work. I wanted to see if your interested in helping me do one for turning the down's race track at the fairgrounds into an urban farm and market with a transportation depot. I'll be working with a local urban design firm and would like to submit more than just a description of it. I can help you get source photography. I was thinking about a mashup between the Co-op, Los Pablanos, and the Alvarado depot at the corner of Central and Louisiana. I can get a vantage point from within the stands or Tingley to get a southern view and a street level can be taken from Talins.

Hey Brendisimo,

ABQ Dwell here. I have a good photo for a possible "Possibilities" piece.

This is up by the Tram, near the County Line Restaurant, and right in front of the Outpost Ice Arena. It's also just steps from the popular bike trail that parallels Tramway. My wife had the great suggestion of a combined coffee shop/bike shop. Any interest in creating?

Hello, yeah I was thinking about blogging about it. I also want to take a video camera with me and make some sort of documentary (something I've never done before) about my experience an I also wanted to interview people along the way and ask them what they thing about how things are going in this country.

Keep on creating!
Love, sile
