Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are generally known as casitas in New Mexico. Albuquerque has abundance of casitas in the old town, downtown, north valley and university neighborhoods. These units were developed organically to respond to the housing shortages (1880s, 1940s, 1970s, and 1980s) of those times.

Today's housing shortage is acute and the largest Albuquerque has experienced with the need for an additional 13,000 rental units. If 5% of Albuquerque home owners built a casita on their lot, the housing crisis could be solved today.
