ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— The Carlisle condominiums have captured the imagination of the widely circulated Engineering News Report.
"We were awarded the No. 1 residential project for 2018 for the southwest region," said developer, Kenny Hinkes.
Hinkes said the award is an honor, considering they beat out developments in New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada.
"This humble little property competed against mega-condos in Phoenix and Las Vegas and Reno," said Hinkes.
Hinkes believes it's the soul of the community that helped propel The Carlisle to the honor.
The building was destroyed in a fire that was later determined to be arson.
"When a building is completely destroyed and the neighborhood and the community reaches together and says no - we won't let this go away - it's really quite remarkable," said Hinkes.
He says he hopes this award attracts and inspires builders from around the country.
