Ade­vel­oper has marked its re­turn to the Cal­gary condo mar­ket with plans for a new tower in the city’s down­town.

Van­cou­ver-based Qualex-Land­mark lat­est project is called Mark on Tenth, which is planned for a site at 10th Av­enue and 8th Street S.W. that once be­longed to West Cana­dian Graph­ics.

The project fea­tures 270 units in a 34-storey sky­scraper. The mixed-use res­i­den­tial high­rise will be “sleek and so­phis­ti­cated,” says vice-pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing Parham Mah­boubi.

Part of its ap­peal will be its lo­ca­tion, he says.

“We’re ex­cited about the lo­ca­tion and its prox­im­ity to ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing,” says Mah­boubi. “If some­one is seek­ing the life­style and con­ve­nience as­soci- ated with down­town liv­ing, this is among the best lo­ca­tions you can find.”

The tower’s lo­ca­tion comes with “amaz­ing views” of down­town Cal­gary, the Bow River and the Rocky Moun­tains, he says.

He ex­pects the project will ap­peal to young pro­fes­sion­als, first­time home buy­ers and in­vestors.

Units will come in one bed­room and two-bed­room floor plans. Res­i­dents of Mark on Tenth will have ac­cess to a 0.2-hectare podium deck with roof gar­den.

In ad­di­tion to res­i­den­tial units, the condo project will in­clude a spe­cialty re­tail com­po­nent in its podium, with of­fice space on the sec­ond floor. A launch of the Mark on Tenth sales cen­tre is ten­ta­tively sched­uled for Jan­uary.

It fol­lows the success of QualexLand­mark’s other condo de­vel­op­ments, most re­cently Luna and Calla.

Calla is a 12-storey glass and steel res­i­den­tial tower that over­looks the his­toric Lougheed House and Beaulieu Gar­dens.

Af­ter opening for sales in Oc­to­ber, Calla is now 80 per cent sold.

While Qualex-Land­mark ex­pected a strong re­sponse for Calla, Mah­boubi says its sales pace ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions.

Calla has 168 units in one- and two-bed­room lay­outs. It also in­cludes town­houses and sin­gle­storey gar­den homes.

Luna is a high­rise condo de­vel­op­ment in the southwest Cal­gary com­mu­nity of Con­naught that is 98 per cent sold.
