The City of Santa Fe purchased the 50-acre Railyard project in 1995.  Between 1995 and 2002, a Master Plan was prepared and approved that designated 37 acres for commercial development.

The Santa Fe Railyard Community Corporation master leases from the City of Santa Fe the portions of the Santa Fe Railyard designated for commercial development by the Railyard Master Plan and Design Guidelines.  Development will total 500,000 SF upon project completion.

Development of individual land parcels generally takes two forms.  The first is development by a business for its own use (“Owner Occupied”).  Examples of this strategy include Santa Fe Clay, Molecule, The Raven and Violet Crown Cinemas.

The second strategy is to develop a property for the purpose of leasing speculative space or selling condominiums (residential or commercial) to others.  Examples include the Market Station building, Welders Supply and the 1219 Cerrillos Road buildings.

The Farmers Market building is a hybrid of both strategies.  The Farmers Market Institute occupies a portion of the building but also leases space to others including Second Street Brewery.
