The 143 Town Homes in the Academy North Subdivision were designed by well-known Albuquerque architect Roger Smith, in 1983. Originally a community of rental homes, the houses were offered for sale around 1992.
All the homes have an open concept / mid-century feel; some floor plans have enclosed courtyards; all have fireplaces and two car garages.
Academy North with its Neighborhood Association is a jewel in the Albuquerque North East heights / Cherry Hills neighborhood.
