500 Marquette is a 15-story, 71.7 m (235 ft) office skyscraper in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States. The building was designed by Dwayne Lewis Architects and opened in 1986. It is the fourth tallest building in the city.

The top floor of the building was home to the Albuquerque Petroleum Club, a members-only dining club which closed in 2007.[4] During the 1990s, 500 Marquette was owned and managed by the Chicago-based Equity Office Properties Trust. Bernalillo County was in negotiations to purchase the building in 2008 but backed off from the deal due to the worsening financial crisis.[5]
