Residents invited to check out county complex project
Santa Fe County residents on Wednesday can review “project concepts” for a new $27.9 million county administration complex in the downtown area.
The county has invited residents to an open house and presentation from 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the current county administration headquarters, 102 Grant Ave.
The complex, expected to be a 62,000-square-foot facility allowing the consolidation of several county offices, will replace an old judicial building at the corner of Catron Street and Griffin Street.
It will sit only a short walk from the current county administration building and will include on-site public parking, according to a county news release.
The complex is tentatively scheduled to be complete in fall 2019. A renovation of the current administration building will follow and should be complete by early 2020.
County commissioners awarded the nearly $28 million design-build contract to a team of Jaynes Corp. and Studio Southwest Architects.
