Sandia Heights is a unique residential development covering 1,600 acres in the foothills of the Sandia
Mountains. The community was started in 1965 by the Sandia Peak tram company under the guidance
of Robert Nordhaus. The land was purchased “piecemeal” over a long period of time, explaining the
many subdivisions and numerous versions of the Declarations of Restrictions controlling the Sandia
Heights area. When the property was developed it was far removed from the services of the “city”. In
1972 a small group of residents formed SHHA and its purpose was to preserve this unique character and
quality of life in the area.
