Another Albuquerque historic landmark gone…


Almost a year ago, I wrote about the devastating fire at the Castle apartments. Located on Central Avenue at about 15th street, the apartments were incredibly well built, had an appealing interior design and finish and were well loved by anyone who has ever lived there.

Although several local developers looked at ways to save the structure and renovate the building, it was demolished this week. The following photos are pictures I took when I toured the property with the owners a few years ago and/or recent photos of the demolition.

KRQE website has coverage of the fire and the demolition.-

All that remains today are the original carriage houses, now car garages to the south of the original structures.

As one of Albuquerque’s finest apartment structures, you will be missed.
