I'll take El Paso over ABQ or Tucson any day.

Crime rate in Albuquerque is one of the reasons not to move to this city.

Facebook recently opened the first of six buildings of its $1.5 billion data center in Los Lunas. The facility also opened with 150 of its eventual 300 permanent employees. Over 1,000 construction workers are being employed to build the facility that will be completed by 2023.



Facebook also announced that it will be investing $800 million into the renewable energy infrastructure of the state to be able to power the facility.


Facebook also recently bought an additional 465 acres of land around the facility, but it has not said what its plans are for the land.


Netflix has moved into its new production hub at Albuquerque Studios, which is now being called Netflix Studios North America. Netflix has committed to spend at least $1 billion on productions and employ over 1,000 people for the next ten years at the facility.


Facebook and Netflix together mean a total of $3.3 billion in private investment into the economies of Albuquerque and New Mexico.

Intel in Rio Rancho is growing again after years of decline, due mainly to the company's decision to base its new 3D Xpoint technology development at the plant. The company recently filed reports with the state that show employment is up by 168 people in the last year, with plans to hire 68 more, for a total of about 1,300 employees at the site.


Homegrown Albuquerque tech company Lavu has announced the acquisition of the MenuDrive online ordering platform in a bid to diversify the company from its point-of-sale software roots. Lavu recently completed moving its headquarters to the city's tallest building, Albuquerque Plaza, spending $1.5 million to renovate the 17,700 sq ft space. The company is also in the process of adding 45 employees to its current Albuquerque workforce.

The rendering below was released in February showing the new chambers structure that will be constructed.

Albuquerque's Pace bike share system will be expanding and doubling in size from its current 250 bikes in 54 stations to 500 bikes in over 100 stations.


Pace is Zagster's dockless bike share system.

Zagster recently announced that it will be partnering with Albuquerque on a pilot dockless e-scooter program for the city after several false starts over the last year by other companies to begin e-scooter programs in the city. Albuquerque's tough regulations have so far prohibited other companies like Bird and Razor from operating systems in the city. Lime has not said if it could operate under the current rules.

The Zagster Spin dockless scooter system in Albuquerque will have 750 e-scooters available.
