Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union – Paseo/Ventura

Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union – Paseo/Ventura

The Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union (SLFCU) Paseo/Ventura branch is part of the Ventura Place Center.  Each building, while unique, must follow general requirements for the Center such as colors, stone accents and window treatments.  This branch was designed to take advantage of the Paseo Del Norte frontage and views of the Sandia Mountains.

This branch is Rio Grande Credit Union’s first facility on the West Side of Albuquerque.  This branch offers safe deposit boxes, drive thru teller services and a drive thru ATM.
