Inner-city tower to make its Mark
Mark on Tenth to contain 34 storeys
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.
