BIG MONEY

Big Money

Santa Fe Village and Springer Plaza, two properties adjoining each other on the northeast corner of Alameda and Don Gaspar are being sold to the same person. The two multi-multi million dollar lot sales would affect at least 20 mom-and-pop local businesses and no one seems to know where the BIG MONEY is coming from or who is involved.

The City has always wanted to build a monster parking structure next to Santa Fe Village. India Palace (the old Little Chief) and Keshi are part of the village and have always been sort of in the way from the City’s point of view.

The bridge over the Santa Fe River on Don Gaspar at Alameda is a “bridge” between the State building complex and the City’s small downtown. The bridge is not as historical as the Santa Fe bridge on which the Rosenbergs pasted nuke secrets in a Jell-o box but it is as symbolically important.

Most of the shops and retail in the area smell Gerald Peters, the reptillionaire developer friend of Fat Bill. There is so much BIG MONEY from Texas pouring into Santa Fe that the odds are that literally the new owner of the block is Oil.

Many of the shops (El Nicho, Crazy Fox, Guns For Hire, Keshi) in what used be called “the only affordable area downtown” have been there for 20 to 25 years. There are two hotels on that block already, The Inn of the Governor and Hotel St. Francis (Fat Bill's Sec. of Tourism Mike Cerletti’s former project).

There is a possibility that the State was interested in the two properties. The County bought the Paramount; the City own half the block and wants to built a six story parking tomb; and the State needs space.

So, bloggers does anyone know anything about this mega-deal?

Lovely photos, Dude. I hope some of my old favorite weavers from Coyote are showing, this weekend.

Hey Danny, it would be interesting to learn who has plans for the village and what they plan to build there. I have also heard rumors.

Not sure about your "vision" but I sure do love your images.

And I'm betting you're right that it's the "reptillionaire" GP.

You could always go down to the Rio Chama and wait for some drunk to start talking.

I mean, that palce is already five seconds away from being where the Senate meets when in session.
