Built in 1926 for the J. S. Brown & Bro. Mercantile Company of Denver, Colorado, the building was constructed as a warehouse for the distribution of goods. The building was connected to the world via a rail spur — the rail network was the driving force of Albuquerque commerce in the mid-1920s.
Today, it’s known as the Verge Building and is connected to the world via state-of-the-art fiber optics. Now, the Internet is the new driving force of Albuquerque’s economy.
Renovated to meet the unique needs of those early-stage tech companies — flexible, constantly changing — the Verge Building is New Mexico’s hub for innovative companies and entrepreneurs. The building is headquarters for the Verge Fund and a number of great startups.
In East Downtown (“EDo”) at the heart of Innovation Central, the Verge Building has all the benefits of being downtown with none of the challenges. Quick on and off from I-25 is combined with on-site parking. Downtown is one block away, and some of Albuquerque’s best local restaurants are a short lunch walk away.
The Verge Building is next door to Innovate ABQ and the Lobo Rainforest Building, across the street from FatPipe, and in different directions, just two blocks from WESST and The STEMulus Center.
If you want to be surrounded by people building the future of New Mexico, this is the place to be.
