Tramway has long had a cultural and logistical importance to the Albuquerque Metro area. Not only is Tramway an important commuter byway to the NE Heights, it is also the gateway to the Sandia Mountains and all the recreation it has to offer. Nestled between the iconic Bridges on Tramway lies a property located on the NW corner of Candelaria and Tramway that has long been underutilized. The property is walking distance from recreation trails, bike paths, open space and iconic neighborhoods. Residents, tourists and enthusiasts agree that this area is long overdue for a locale where the community can gather.

The Bridges

Four cantilever footbridges cross Tramway from Copper to Montgomery. More than aesthetic, these bridges provide connectivity between NE Heights Neighborhoods and the recreational amenities found in the Sandia Mountains, an 8.5 mile protected path along Tramway. The bridges are a draw to runners, bicyclists, tourists and the surrounding community. Bridges on Tramway draws inspiration from these historic bridges and aims to provide connectivity and community to the NE Heights and Albuquerque.

The Peak

A five minute walk from the Bridges on Tramway lies the Piedra Lisa trailhead, better known as "White Wash". This trailhead is one of thirty trails accessible from the 8.5 mile bike path along Tramway. The 10,679 foot high mountain is home to the second longest aerial tramway. The tram takes 10,500 trips every year to the Sandia Ski Area and popular recreation trails. More than recreation, the Sandia Mountains provide an unbelievable scenic backdrop to the City of Albuquerque and the view is even more incredible from the Bridges on Tramway.

The Facts


Hastings Entertainment vacated this 20,000 SF Tramway property in 2017 due to their Chapter 7 bankruptcy and resulting closure. The property that sits on 2.1 acres of land will be redeveloped into a multi-tenant retail center and aims to bring the entertainment just as Hastings one did. Construction on this project will begin on Feb. 14, 2019. Delivery of the exterior renovations and finishes will be completed 60-90 days after commencement. Landlord aims to deliver all suites in a similar condition and will provide a State of Landlord Work to interested tenants that will detail delivery conditions. Utilities will be sub-metered but tenants will all pay a flat rate for gas, electric and water.
