About Tierra Contenta
Located just off of the 599 by pass road and Airport Road, it is just a ten minute drive to downtown Santa Fe. General Conveniences such as shopping centers, services, and stores are just a few minutes by car or bicycle.
The non-profit Tierra Contenta Corporation was created by the City of Santa Fe in 1994 for the purpose of implementing the Tierra Contenta master plan, comprised of 4,000 housing units including single family homes, townhouses, apartments and commercial units. The master plan established the framework for a mixed-use, mixed-income community with homes, schools, offices, businesses, community services, parks and open space. At least 40 percent of the homes are affordable to those making 80 percent of the average monthly income or less.
Tierra Contenta is currently in its fifth phase (Phase 2C), representing approximately two-thirds of the planned development. More than 2,300 units have been completed and occupied, comprised of 1,900 fee simple and 400 rental units. Approximately 45 percent of the units are affordable to those earning less than 80 percent of the average monthly income.
