Shipping Container Development Breaks Ground in NE Heights
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – November 13, 2018 – Mayor Tim Keller, other elected officials, dignitaries and the development team were on hand today to break ground on Tin Can Alley – the newest shipping container development in Albuquerque at San Pedro and Alameda. In addition to the Tin Can Alley restaurant tenants, on adjacent properties will be Stoneage Climbing Gym and Vinaigrette. The projected opening date is August 2019. The architect is Joe Slagle, and the contractor is Snyder Construction.
Tin Can Alley will be 11,000 square feet and house Santa Fe Brewing, Amore Pizzeria, Rustic Star Burgers, Nitro Fog Creamery, Pho Cup, Guava Tree Café, a 505 Southwestern Restaurant Kiosk and Epiphany Espresso. Stoneage Climbing Gym is planning a 26,500 square-foot facility, and Vinaigrette will open a 3,500 square-foot restaurant.
“The need for local businesses in this portion of the northeast height is huge,” explained Roy Solomon, Tin Can Alley’s developer. “There are literally no options on this section of Alameda, so it makes sense from all levels.”
The announcement of the 505 Southwestern Restaurant Kiosk by Rob Holland of Flagship Food Group was especially moving for Solomon. Flagship Foods bought the 505 Southwestern Restaurant brand from Solomon several years ago. Holland announced his decision to license the name back to Solomon so that Solomon can create the restaurant concepts that will be unveiled at both Tin Can Alley and Solomon’s other shipping container development Green Jeans Farmery.
“This is going to be one of the best places to hang out in the city when it opens next fall,” stated Mayor Tim Keller. “Lifting up small businesses in our community is important to our economic development plans and we are looking forward to helping them grow right here in Albuquerque,” said Mayor Tim Keller.
