Proposal to Add "Alvarado Square" to the Bernalillo County Government Center

3:47 PM

Bernalillo County is seeking public input on a proposal to add “Alvarado Square” to the newly-named future home for Bernalillo County government.

In about two years, Bernalillo County will begin its move to new administrative headquarters at Bernalillo County Government Center, also commonly referred to as Alvarado Square.

The proposal for consideration is this: Should “Alvarado Square” become part of the building’s name? The amended name would become Bernalillo County Government Center @ Alvarado Square.

Bernalillo County government’s future home is located at 415 Silver SW, the former Public Service Company of New Mexico building, which used “Alvarado Square” as a location identifier for many years.

The Alvarado name has historical significance that’s tied to the old landmark Alvarado Hotel. Even though the historic hotel was closed down and eventually demolished, it continues to geographically and architecturally define part of Downtown Albuquerque.

The county manager’s office appreciates and thanks the community for its input.
