AS Realty Investors is working on a relocation and expansion for its Central Desert Behavioral Health Center in Albuquerque, NM. To that end, the California healthcare real estate company is building a 38,000-square-foot facility at 1525 Renaissance Blvd. N.E. Once completed, the new center will double in size from 28 to 64 beds. The behavioral health center is currently at 239 Elm St., a 112-year-old facility.
Central Desert Behavioral Health Center is targeted to primarily older adults receiving treatment for behavioral illnesses. AS Realty’s Avi Schlesinger told Albuquerque Business First that the upgraded center was needed, because the current facility is always full. Schlesinger also said that, once the new building opens, more staff will also be hired.
Jaynes Corp. of Albuquerque is the general contractor on the project. Mark Bixler is the architect of record on the $9.6-million facility.
