Description 

"The AT&SF Freight Office in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is significant at the local level under National Register Criterion C in the area of architecture because it an excellent example of the Mission Revival style of architecture that common on in the American Southwest and in New Mexico during the first half of the 20th century and because it was favored by the Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railway Company. The Mission Revival style promulgated by the railroad is a more simplified version of the style, without many of the ornate architectural details found on earlier Mission Revival-style railroad buildings. The Freight Office is significant at the local level under National Register Criterion A in the area of transportation because it served as an office building for a larger AT&SF warehouse complex, which was demolished in the 1980s. The nomination of the AT&SF Freight Office is supported by the Multiple Property Documentation Form, ""Historical and Architectural Resources of Central Albuquerque, 1880-1970,"" which was completed in 2012."
