Many food halls are under construction throughout Albuquerque, NM. One of them, 505 Central Market in the downtown corridor, is approximately 25% completed, according to Mark Baker, the developer. Baker told Albuquerque Business First that he has secured four of nine tenants at the 13,000-square-foot development, which is scheduled to open in spring 2020. One of the tenants is Humble Coffee Co., of which Baker is a co-owner. Baker is principal of architect firm Baker Architecture + Design, which is the architect of 505 Central Market.
When Baker first acquired the property in 2016, the focus was to have been mixed-use, including apartments, office and retail space. After seeing the food hall concept in other cities, he decided to build one in Albuquerque.
Other food halls under construction are the 34,000-square-foot Sawmill Market, scheduled to open in February 2020, and Highlands Central Market Food Hall, which will be open by mid-2020.
