Weekly Alibi Buys Building

Downtown building cost $600,000

The Weekly Alibi celebrates a decade in print by buying a building in downtown Albuquerque.

After years of expansion and working out of offices scattered in different buildings, the paper decided it was time for a move.

“Downtown is experiencing a revitalization, and we are huge backers and promoters of a strong downtown, so it made sense for us to make a real estate investment there,” says General Manager Dan Scott.

The Alibi bought the building from a local attorney for $600,000, and Scott says it immediately appraised for more than the purchase price.

Staff will be moving in early winter, Scott says.
