Albuquerque Fire station 9

On November 10th, the Albuquerque Fire Rescue hosted an open house for the recently completed Fire Station 9 located on Menaul just west of Eubank in ABQ.

Mayor Tim Keller was present along with Paul Dow, ABQ fire chief as well as city councilor Diane Gibson and several distinguished guests from the AFR, the city and the Neighborhood Association. In lieu of a ribbon cutting, a hose ”decoupling” was performed with a fire hose stretched across a bay door, in which Mayor Keller and Chief Dow opened together. The AFR hosted an interview session with various stakeholders, including our own Ray Vigil, to discuss the project and features.

This documentary will be produced in house with AFR and released as a press release to the public shortly. The facility was open to view the recently moved in firefighters, and the apparatus vehicles were on full display in the Apparatus Bay.

Vigil & Associates received an award of Excellence in Planning and Design, for Exemplary Service to the Community

North Domingo Baca Amphitheater

The North Domingo Baca Multigenerational center addition was completed by Vigil & Associates, May of 2020. The facility fills the heart of the far Northeast Heights of Albuquerque gracing the community with a variety of recreational activities.

The addition of over 19,000 square feet includes an outdoor amphitheater, two-story gymnasium boasting NCAA regulation sized basketball and volleyball courts with spectator seating. Both the amphitheater and gym also include a state-of-the-art Audio/Visual display for movie screening and presentations. The gymnasium houses an indoor track on the second floor, offices for gym staff, a rock climbing gym and an outdoor playground to the building’s west end, where exterior rooftop balconies provide a segue from the building to the green landscape and picturesque views of the park to the west.

This addition expands the offerings and capacity to the neighborhood and its visitors for gatherings, performances and regulation sporting events, as it is an amazing facility where virtually every generation will benefit from its existence.

The opening date is to be determined due to the city’s current Covid-19 regulations.
