The Vision

Midtown Santa Fe will be a thriving new center of activity for Santa Feans. This mixed-use development will build a community and cultivate an environment of innovation and creativity.

The City is committed to implementing the best practices of public-private partnerships of similar large-scale development projects, and sophisticated developers with a track record of successfully implementing complex mixed-use districts will work with us to create the right mix of land uses:

  • Mixed Use & Residential
  • Technology & Innovation
  • Higher Education
  • Film & Multimedia
  • Public Open Space
  • Arts & Culture

Midtown will become an essential and memorable hub in Santa Fe, reflecting the City’s heritage and culture where all residents are invited to live, work, play, and learn. The site shall become the most creative location in the U.S. — a place where a wide variety of people interact and collaborate to find their passions, build their skills, live in a thriving, vibrant neighborhood, and create a great future for our community, region and beyond.
