About Gold Building
The Gold Building (also known as the New Mexico Bank & Trust Building) is a 14-story office building located at 320 Gold Avenue SW in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. When the building was completed in 1968 it was one of the tallest in the city at 62 m (203 ft). It now ranks sixth. The building is rectangular in plan and sits on a larger one-story base. The east and west walls of the Gold Building are windowless expanses of reddish brick, much like the neighboring Simms Building. The north facade is clad in dark glass that neatly reflects the image of the Bank of Albuquerque Tower a few blocks away. The south elevation, also glass, is punctuated by a protruding brick-faced elevator shaft. The architects were W.C. Kruger & Associates.
