Second Phase of The Highlands Receives Green Light

The Highlands was the original name of the Albuquerque neighborhood in 1886.

Albuquerque, N.M.—Titan Development and Maestas Development Group received approval from the city’s Planning Commission for phase two of The Highlands project, a mixed-use development encompassing a multifamily component with ground-floor retail, a Marriott Springhill Suites Highlands hotel and restaurant establishments.

The 10-acre project will be located across the street from Presbyterian Hospital, bordering Interstate 25 to the west, Central to the South, Sycamore Street to the east and Copper Avenue to the north. Recently, the developer released an animated rendering of the project, depicting a new ART bus driving on Central by the hospital and past the seven-story building.

Developers received the green light to proceed with the 228-unit multifamily community and groundbreaking is expected in the fourth quarter of this year. The first phase of the project, which includes the 74-unit apartment community Broadstone Highlands, was already approved in December 2016 and will offer a unit mix consisting of studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans. The developers will focus next on the retail and restaurant areas, which will be located on the two blocks between the hotel and the east block.
