The Orpheum Community Hub
Homewise recently purchased the historic Orpheum Building at 2nd Street and Coal Avenue to serve as our Albuquerque Homeownership Center and Community Hub. We are currently renovating the building so that it can reach its full potential as a community development hub as part of the exciting revitalization underway in downtown Albuquerque and the Barelas neighborhood. The design includes a community classroom/performance space, artist studios, apartments, gallery space and offices for the Homewise Albuquerque Homeownership Center.
