The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is currently being constructed at the 5000 m Chajnantor plateau in the Chilean Andes. ALMA has been designed and is being built to deliver transformational science in the millimeter and submillimeter regime for many years to come. We briefly describe the project status and timeline. The Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX), built at the same site, is already operational and proves to be an effective survey instrument. We discuss which niches in millimeter/submillimeter astronomy will remain open for a possible facility in Antarctica.
