flipping-la-luzWelcome to world-renowned Architect Antoine Predock’s New Urbanist-inspired La Luz del Oeste, a wonderful and uniquely walkable community built amid five acres of gardens and greenspaces, sitting upon 40 acres ofForever Open Space along the Rio Grande Bosque.

     Architect Predock–also known for local projects like the Rio Grande Nature Center, the Aperture Center at Mesa del Sol and George Pearl Hall School of Architecture on the University of NM Campus (pictured Below)–designed La Luz del Oeste early in his 50+-year career, between 1968-1972.

      Folks have lived in and loved their La Luz homes for decades, enjoying the stunning Sandia Mountain, Bosque and MetroABQ City views from all over the community. The cherished townhomes don’t often come up for sale. Read about what one couple did with an available unit, remodeling it from top to bottom, preparing it for comfortable living for the next 45 years.

    I love the MetroABQ area! Extraordinary architects live and create here; beautiful and profound art installations abound; Greenspaces and Parklands define whole areas of the city; extras like Farmers' Markets and cultural events add to our quality of life. I write about it all in the MetroABQ Newsletter.
