The Vista Larga Residential Historic District is significant at the local level under National Register Criterion C in the area of architecture because the neighborhood includes excellent examples of mid-20th-century house types and styles of architecture, including Ranch Houses designed in Pueblo-Spanish Revival and Territorial Revivals, Contemporary style, and the International Style. The Vista Larga Residential Historic District is significant at the local level under National Register Criterion A in the area of community planning and development because the plan, with curvilinear streets, circles, and cul-de-sacs, is an excellent example of residential subdivision design from the late 1940s through the 1960s. Its location two miles east of the downtown reflects the changing socio-economic patterns unfolding in Albuquerque in the mid- 20th century.
