Today, the City of Albuquerque held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new multigenerational center to be built in northwest Albuquerque near Cibola Loop and Cuba Rd NW. The multigenerational center will serve as an access point for City services and programs aimed at residents of all ages, including youth, seniors, and families, and will be the first of multiple amenities planned at the site.

The nearly 15,000 square foot building will be constructed in phases, with the first phase to include a 2,701 sq. ft. multipurpose room, meeting room, and classroom and allow for future developments.

"We know it’s important for seniors and youth to have access to amenities and programs that are convenient and close to home,” said Mayor Tim Keller. "As the Westside is continues to grow, with new development and quality of life enhancements underway in the area, and this new multigenerational center will serve as a bustling community hub for folks of all ages.”

This will be the fourth multigenerational center operated by the Department of Senior Affairs. It will join Manzano Mesa, North Domingo Baca, and the newly constructed Santa Barbara Martineztown Multigenerational Center, which is slated to open in the coming months.

“The purpose of our multigenerational centers is to bring generations of Albuquerque residents together,” said Anna Sanchez, Director of Senior Affairs. “We are excited for this opportunity to bring our services to northwest Albuquerque, including our senior meals, recreational activities, and youth programs.”

The multigenerational center is expected to open in 2025.
