Albuquerque Apartments for Rent
Albuquerque, New MexicoAlbuquerque is New Mexico's largest city and is located on the Rio Grande. Albuquerque is home to the University of New Mexico (UNM) and Kirtland Air Force Base as well as Sandia National Laboratories and Petroglyph National Monument. The Sandia Mountains run along the eastern side of Albuquerque and the Rio Grande flows through the city north to south.
Albuquerque ApartmentsAlbuquerque is geographically divided into four quadrants which offer various types of housing and apartment rental options.
Be prepared to spend more money per month on an apartment located in the Northeast Quadrant, which lies at the base of the Sandia Mountains and contains portions of the Sandia Heights neighborhoods. The University of New Mexico, the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, the Uptown area which includes Coronado and Winrock malls, Journal Center, Balloon Fiesta Park, and Albuquerque Academy are all located in this quadrant.
The Northwest Quadrant contains historic Old Town Albuquerque and has a mixture of commercial, low-income, middle-income, and some of the most expensive homes in the city. This makes for a myriad of apartment choices in this area, depending on taste and budget. Northwest Albuquerque includes the largest section of downtown, the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park and the Bosque, the Petroglyph National Monument, the historic Martineztown neighborhood, and Cottonwood Mall.
Eclipse Aviation, Kirtland Air Force Base, Sandia National Laboratories, the University of New Mexico, Central New Mexico Community College, the Albuquerque International Sunport, University Stadium, Isotopes Park, and University Arena ("The Pit") are located in the Southeast quadrant.
The Nob Hill and East Downtown (EDo) neighborhoods lie along Central Avenue, the border between the Southeast and Northeast quadrants. The expensive residential developments of Four Hills, Willow Wood, and Ridgecrest are also located in this quadrant. Recent developments in the poorer neighborhoods of East Downtown such as the Cesar Chavez Community Center, Veterans Memorial, and the World Market are helping to turn this area into a thriving community with affordable apartments for rent.
Traditionally consisting of agricultural and rural areas, the Southwest quadrant is often referred to as the "South Valley".
