This walk shuttles between the west end of downtown’s main drag and the south side of the Albuquerque Country Club. Though less than a mile apart, the two settings are nearly opposites in character. Along the way you’ll encounter more contrasts as you explore two distinct neighborhoods. Across the street to the west is a relatively new development of four-story buildings with a classic live-work design. The sidewalk level accommodates office and retail space, while the upper floors are residential apartments. Head north toward Central. Eller Apartments front the block north of Gold Ave. They were designed by Henry Trost for Dr. Charles Eller in 1922.
