Study shows concept drawings, proposed locations for new arena

Video Link

A study is revealing what a new arena at the state fairgrounds could look like and where it could go.

Expo New Mexico General Manager Dan Mourning said Tingley Coliseum at the fairgrounds is too small and outdated to bring the big-name acts to Albuquerque. The thought here is that a more inviting arena that seats more people will draw more big-time events year-round.

“Obviously, we already have an arena here, but is that the best? That remains to be seen,” Mourning said. “All these big acts — they’re actually coming to Albuquerque — they’re just stopping at Love’s and grabbing a burrito and moving on through.”

A couple of years ago, the State Fair hired Populous, an internationally known arena designer, to study the idea of building a 15,000 seat arena at the fairgrounds.

UNM plans to build new hospital next to existing one

The University of New Mexico is planning to build a new hospital next to the existing facility.

If the current plans are approved by committees and officials, construction can start next August.

UNM Hopital’s Chief Operating Officer Dr. Mike Chicarelli said the hospital needs some serious change.

"We've talked about the crowded and outdated operating suites built in 1954 and we know those spaces are very, very small,” Dr. Chicarelli said.

Chicarelli gave the hospital’s finance committee an update on plans to build a $400 million modern medical tower.

"So the design of the new tower, we would definitely want to create a space where we have backstage activity such as moving supplies, etc. and of course front stage activity which is patient flow, provider flow, etc.," he said.

The new tower will have 96 inpatient beds and 18 operating rooms.

A look at the future ‘Arrive Albuquerque,’ currently Hotel Blue

California group recently announced that the historic Hotel Blue on the edge of downtown will be getting millions of dollars in renovations. Now the public is getting a first glance at what that will look like.

“It’s a federal historic tax credit project to renovate the facade of the hotel to bring it back to that historic character. Most recently, it was Hotel Blue, but we’re bringing it back to the mid-century modern style,” said Ryan Mcculloch.

The bottom level will have a coffee shop and bar for guests when they check-in. Outside there will be a pool and a lawn area for games like bocce ball.

Ryan Mcculloch with Neighborhood Establishment says the hotel’s name will change to ‘Arrive Albuquerque.’ Their group is hoping this will bring even more change and development to the area.

Committee in talks about new Albuquerque soccer stadium
Video Link

KRQE 13

Plans for a new soccer stadium in Albuquerque could be moving forward.

Sellouts were common for the New Mexico United at Isotopes Park for the professional soccer team’s inaugural season. The city and the team have said all along that Albuquerque could use a real soccer stadium, and now, the state could be getting behind the idea, too.

United is contracted to spend at least one more year sharing a home field with the Isotopes. The team has said it’s been looking at other options for a future stadium of its own.

“It’s within our scope, it’s within our plans, we’re looking into it now and we definitely hope to have it in the next five years,” NM United Marketing Director Elizabeth Davis has told KRQE News 13.

Next week, the Economic and Rural Development Committee will look into the idea of pitching in to build a new soccer stadium.
