SanBuSCo Market Center

In 1983, the Santa Fe City Fire Department put SanBuSCo on a list of properties to condemn as fire hazards. The following year, the new owner, Schepps New Mexico Development Corporation, began a bold renovation of the jumble of buildings on the three-plus acre site adjacent to the Santa Fe Railyard property along Guadalupe Street. What emerged was a new historic district with a style distinct from all the others in Santa Fe, dubbed Warehouse Aesthetic.

SanBuSCo Market Center incorporates more than twenty different structural systems, spanning more than 100 years, covering 80,000 square feet of interior space. The renovation was conceived of as a mixed use project for retail stores, restaurants, entertainment, and offices. The central hall inside the main entrance has displays of historic photographs and plaques which tell the story of this unique railroad development in terms of the building trades and the people who came to Santa Fe.

In the years since SanBuSCo’s grand opening, the buildings along Guadalupe Street and the Railyard have been renovated as well – Brown Pipe and Supply was replaced by retail stores; B & M Auto Upholstery was replaced by Zia Diner. Nearly every building in the neighborhood displays elements of the Warehouse Aesthetic.
