Albuquerque Plaza also known as the Bank of Albuquerque Tower is a 107 m (351 ft) high-rise on the south side of Civic Plaza 201 Third Street NW, in Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is the taller of a two tower complex that contains class-A office space connected at ground level by a two-story promenade containing retail space connecting to the shorter Hyatt Regency Albuquerque hotel tower. At 22 stories it is the tallest building in New Mexico. The hotel tower, with 21 stories, is the state's second tallest building at 78.03 m (256.0 ft). Their similar height, color, and pyramidal roofs make them the focal point of the Albuquerque skyline.

Albuquerque Plaza complex was designed by Hellmuth, Obata, & Kassabaum and built in 1990.

Major tenants

With its central location in the downtown Albuquerque business district, and proximity to federal and state courthouses, the building is home to several major local law firms and GSA offices,[5] and serves as headquarters for the Bank of Albuquerque, National Association.

Environmental impact

In addition to providing downtown Albuquerque with 357,000 sq ft (33,200 m2). of commercial office space, the second tallest building in New Mexico is also one of the state’s most sustainable structures. Albuquerque Plaza, utilizes a hybrid thermal energy storage system from CALMAC. The system helps alleviate the building’s dependence on the electric grid, cut carbon emissions and reduces the energy required to cool its occupants.[6] For over 20 years, shifting the electric demand used to cool the building from on-peak to off-peak hours has saved the property over US$1.2 million on electric utility bills. In 2002, the Bank of Albuquerque Tower was awarded BOMA’s “Office Building of the Year” award, which considers energy conservation as part of its judging criteria.[7]
