The vision for the West Central MRA draws on the rich history of the Atrisco Land Grant and its dramatic location along the Rio Grande to provide one-of-a-kind opportunities for shopping, entertainment, high-quality owner-occupied housing, and industrial development.  It is a principal location in the Albuquerque metro area for warehousing/distribution, light assembly operations, and high-tech businesses. It is a vibrant center for ethnic specialty retail items. It also contains one of the city’s premier walkable mixed-use activity centers, which opens onto the Rio Grande Bosque.

The goals in the MRA Plan are to:

  • Increase the economic vitality of the MRA.
  • Improve the overall appearance of the MRA.
  • Make design improvements to accentuate the distinctive identity of the opportunity sites and their surroundings.

The vision for the Atrisco Business Park is as a principal location in the Albuquerque metro area for warehousing/distribution, light assembly and other types of industry and an employment center.

The vision for the Atrisco Town Center is as a healthy community shopping area serving surrounding neighborhoods and a vibrant center in the Albuquerque metro area for ethnic specialty items.

The vision for the Atrisco Plaza Area is as one of the city’s premier walkable mixed-use activity centers, which takes full advantage of its location adjacent to the Rio Grande Bosque.
