Overview

The purpose of this project is to utilize a collaborative, interactive process in the design and development of 3521 4th Street NW, known as the “Brown Property”. The goal of the process is to develop an economically feasible, high-quality project that is responsive to the neighborhood context and market trends. The strategy is to conduct a design process that actively engages stakeholders to identify desirable and feasible site concepts. A market study for this site has already been completed (below). This process aims to build on that existing information during a charrette-style event that will help determine appropriate building location, height and massing; drive aisle and parking locations, etc., or the built form of the development. 

The results of this public meeting will influence the Request for Proposals (RFP) that the City of Albuquerque will send to potential developers of the site. The RFP is intended to contain requirements and guidelines based on the results of the participatory design process.
