Development—Albuquerque, New Mexico

Elements Townhomes

Elements, a for-sale green townhome development, will provide residential stability for Albuquerque's emerging downtown. The development will bring to the neighborhood a permanent homeowner community and regular pedestrian traffic as well as an on-site café, serving as a model for both entry-level and upscale green living in Albuquerque's rejuvenated downtown. Elements is a key ingredient of the master plan created by Romero Rose, LLC, Jonathan Rose Companies' southwest affiliate, for the redevelopment of two and one-half vacant city blocks across from Albuquerque's newly renovated Alvarado Transportation Center.

Romero Rose, LLC conceived of Elements as a complement to two of our other developments in the area: Silver Gardens, a mixed-income affordable housing rental project and Green Commons, a green commercial development.

Elements will consist of 72 owner-occupied, multi-story town homes, each of which will be environmentally responsible, energy efficient single family homes, designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.

Elements will be built in phases, to allow the development/ownership team to respond with agility to market demand. Features include balconies and rooftop decks with views of the Sandia Mountains, solar hot water systems, solar photo-voltaic capability, and individual garages.
