Welcome to Casitas de Colores Apartments in Albuquerque, NM

See why our residents call Casitas HOME


We are a premier family friendly apartment community with the best downtown location. In 2014 our community received a score of 94 through the popular online app, “Walk Score”. Casitas is walking distance from Albuquerque's Alvarado Transportation Center, so our residents appreciate the accessibility to work, schools, civic and health facilities. Our community is also near family-oriented establishments such as Century 14 Downtown Theater, Rio Grande Bio-Park, Main Library, and River Bike Trail. We are just minutes away from dozens of unique restaurants, downtown entertainment and shopping.

Our LEED Platinum Apartment Community is energy efficient which makes renting with us more comfortable and affordable. Our commitment to Green products, not only in the construction of the buildings but also in the daily upkeep, allows residents to enjoy living in an environmentally friendly community. Our uniquely designed apartments have windows that are strategically placed to allow for cross breezes, which help with natural cooling versus turning on your air conditioning, thus saving more energy. We pride ourselves on our Non-Smoking Policy throughout our buildings, as well as our use of Energy Star Appliances in each apartment. We have earned our outstanding reputation by offering our residents a commitment to service, beginning with our beautiful community and ending with a staff that is superior in Customer Service.

Thanks to the many partnerships that came together in Casitas de Colores creation, we are able to facilitate all phases of family life, including an on-site Social Services Coordinator provided by Youth Development Inc. (YDI). YDI offers connections to local child care, health care providers, bi-monthly health screenings and training.  This on site resident service center facilitates professional and personal development by offering credit and financial counseling, job training, job search assistance and computer training.

Our community also offers helpful amenities such as a 24 hour on site gym, two spacious laundry facilities, family oriented courtyards with playground equipment, and patio seating with barbeque areas that are landscaped with drought tolerant plants.  The buildings also boast high tech amenities such as 1 gig-a-bit of fiber, Cat 5 and data patch panels in each unit.  Our floor plans are sure to appeal with large open living areas that have plenty of natural light. Each upper level apartment has a private balcony. Our kitchens are completely furnished with Energy Star appliances, which feature a range, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher.

Our commitment in providing a beautiful family friendly community with green-features, outstanding resident services and great downtown location is why our residents choose to call Casitas de Colores HOME.
