NewLife Homes, which brought new life (no pun intended) to two historic Route 66 motels in Albuquerque, wants to add a third the Duke City to its portfolio.
According to Albuquerque Business First:
Executive DirectorJohn Bloomfield said he’s exploring the acquisition of the Deluxe Inn & Suites at 12901 Central Ave. NE between Juan Tabo and Tramway boulevards. The project would become a 76-unit apartment complex that would be marketed primarily to veterans.
Here’s a Google Street View image of the hotel:
According to one online source, the Deluxe originally was built in 1960 as a Holiday Inn.
NewLife Homes also renovated the Sundowner Motel and the Luna Lodge — both on Route 66 in Albuquerque — into low-income housing.
