ALBUQUERQUE, NM, March 8, 2019 – On Tuesday, March 12 at 10:00am MDT, Jim Rich, vice president of Mick Rich Contractors, will join City of Albuquerque officials to break ground for construction of a new gym at the city’s NorthDomingo Baca Multigenerational Center, located at 7521 Carmel Ave NE at Wyoming Blvd.
Following an open bidding process, the city last month awarded Mick Rich the contract to build the gym. Project cost is $5.23 million.
“This will be a showcase gym for the city,” Rich said. “We’re excited to build it, and we thank City Counselor Brad Winter, who was instrumental in getting this project going.”
The gym will be 19,293 square feet, and include a multipurpose court, an elevated indoor running track, an indoor climbing gym with several climbing walls of different heights, an outdoor playground, and an exterior amphitheater.
North Domingo Baca center provides breakfast and lunch for all ages five days a week. It is the most used community center in the city of Albuquerque.
