On these pages, you'll find scores of purchase and lease opportunities within the commercial marketplace of Santa Fe and neighboring communities. They often include beautiful bed & breakfast properties, historic houses remodeled for business uses, and Canyon Road gallery spaces, as well as a good variety of retail, hotel, and office spaces. During the past 25 years, Santa Fe's commercial scene has seen a dramatic expansion, with dozens of national firms responding to economic opportunities.
These were added to the many shops and restaurants in the downtown core; along St. Michael's Drive, Cerrillos Road, and Airport Road commercial strips; and in the two existing malls: Santa Fe Place and The DeVargas Center. The 1990 live/work business model at the innovative Second Street Studios was taken up by others — The Lofts, Twisted Cow Compound, Pacheco Street Lofts, and Lena Street Lofts — in the past two decades. These modern facilities are home to designers, photographers, accountants, fitness studios, leatherworkers, artists, nonprofits, and other uses. You may also discover intriguing purchase and lease options in the Santa Fe Railyard. REI and Violet Crown Cinema are two standout businesses resulting from the city's $144 million redevelopments of the railyard in 2007-2009.
