ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A ne[auth] arly $22 million renovation of the Albuquerque Convention Center is heading toward completion.
Workers are beginning the project’s $13 million final phase, which includes the addition of a deck off the center’s renovated ballroom. The project also includes a new gas fire place, new floors, and wall and ceiling finishes.
Mayor Richard Berry said Monday that the latest construction is what people will notice most.
The work is scheduled to be finished next summer. It’s being done by Bradbury Stamm, an Albuquerque-based contractor.
The first phase was completed in July. That included renovations of the ballroom and kitchen.
Money for the project came from refinancing of the convention center debt at lower interest rates.
