Gallup to Expand Downtown
The $13.1 million plan includes tearing down the Raasch building, directly north of the Gallup building at 11th and P streets.
The four-story building would then be rebuilt with five or six stories — with floorplates matching those in the Gallup building.
Will Scott, one of the owners of the two buildings, said in addition to extra space for Gallup, plans call for a mixture of retail, and other office space and possibly residential space.
“We’re thrilled to help with a project we think creates jobs,” said Urban Development Director David Landis.
The plan calls for recreating Gallup’s facade on the new building, as well as bringing back some of the original design elements from the building, which was built in 1912, Landis said.
“It will be a gorgeous new building,” he said.
