Property Description

TENTH STREET, Alamogordo’s primary east-west arterial thoroughfare, starts at its signalized intersection with the Alamogordo Relief Route - US Highways 54 and 70 - and continues east, through the city, for three miles to the base of the Sacramento Mountains, the easterly boundary of the city. Tenth Street serves most of the residential neighborhoods of the city, and includes the Downtown district, Lowes and Albertsons supermarkets, the Public Library, most of the city’s banks and a variety of the other primary businesses serving Alamogordo’s residents. It also is the “going home” route five days a week for many of Holloman Air Force Base’s civilian and military personnel. So a location on Tenth Street assures businesses of good exposure to customers. This app. 1.5 acre location, with 318 feet of frontage on the south side of Tenth Street, is near Tenth Street’s entrance and would give your business first exposure to traffic entering Alamogordo from the Relief, before those customers saw your competition.
