More than a year ago, the city began seeking a private sector development partner to help transform a 212-space parking lot next to Civic Plaza into an “urban destination for residents and visitors of Albuquerque” complete with a public amenity like a museum or park.
Three groups answered the city’s request for proposals by the April deadline, and the Albuquerque Development Commission was expected to hear a presentation June 20 en route to making a selection. That would then trigger the negotiation of a development agreement.
But the ADC has held no such meeting, and made no such decision.
In fact, the proposals, which have not been made public, are still in the review process.
