Unser / West Central


This area includes Central Avenue from I-40 to the Rio Grande River. It includes the iconic western approach to Albuquerque, a dramatic hill that leads down into the Valley, and provides an incredible view of the Sandias. For much of its history, this area has been rural but as the Westside of the city has grown in population, this area has become one of the fastest growing portions of Albuquerque. Each of these areas are unique and come with their own challenges and opportunities.
