508 First Street NW
Albuquerque, NM, 87102



Warehouse 508 by NMX Sports is a youth-focused, youth-driven avenue to introduce, develop and professionally implement skills in the arts, music, outdoor recreation and non-traditional sports through mentorships, lifestyle events and entrepreneurial opportunities to enhance New Mexico youth’s quality of life and community involvement in a safe, structured and supervised environment.

The City of Albuquerque bought the 27,000 square foot Ice House property in 2006 with the intention of creating the Albuquerque Teen Arts and Entertainment Center which would provide a safe venue for entertainment and educational opportunities for young people in Albuquerque. The purchase and subsequent renovation of the property by Greer Stafford SJCF Architecture has provided an opportunity for the City to establish its commitment to provide a safe, creative center, where young people can spend their time developing artistic talents and unique skill sets in the performing arts. The center is modeled after Santa Fe’s Warehouse 21.
