A new de­sign is start­ing to make its “mark” on the land that once held the home of West Cana­dian Graph­ics.

De­vel­oper Qualex Land­mark broke ground re­cently on its $100-mil­lion condo project, Mark on 10th, in the heart of Cal­gary’s De­sign district.

The 35-storey tower will hold 274 homes and will fea­ture a rooftop res­i­dents’ lounge and fit­ness cen­tre, as well as art de­signed by world-renowned artist/au­thor Dou­glas Cou­p­land.

“We are very pleased to start con­struc­tion on our fifth condo tower in Cal­gary,” says Mo­hammed Es­fa­hani, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Qualex-Land­mark.

He em­pha­sized Mark on 10th’s qual­ity Belt­line lo­ca­tion at 10th Av­enue and 8th Street S.W. and the ex­ten­sive ameni­ties as main at­trac­tions.

Mark on 10th is a mixed-use high­rise tower de­signed by Rafii Ar­chi­tect in part­ner­ship with BKDI Ar­chi­tects Inc. and Du­rante-Kreuk Land­scape Ar­chi­tects.

The street level will of­fer a se­lec­tion of spe­cialty re­tail ser­vices.

The en­try lobby will fea­ture large-scale art­work by Cou­p­land called In­ter­pre­ta­tion of Cal­gary, Al­berta in the 21st Cen­tury. His vi­sion of the city will be 4.9-me­tres tall by 4.1-me­tres wide.

The condo ameni­ties in­clude the rooftop lounge with wet bar, a can­tilevered en­closed glass mez­za­nine with a down­town view, a fully equipped fit­ness cen­tre, hot tub and sun­bathing pa­tio with out­door bar­be­cue and raised fire pit.

Res­i­dents will also have ac­cess to an out­door garden lo­cated over the third-floor re­tail podium, with open lawns, over­head shade trees and a path­way net­work with lounge seat­ing.

“(The) ground break­ing cer­e­mony sig­ni­fies a ma­jor mile­stone,” says Roger Nav­abi, pres­i­dent of Qualex Land­mark. “The project is ex­pected to make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the De­sign District neigh­bour­hood by adding an out­stand­ing devel­op­ment that is in many ways it­self and art form — orig­i­nal and unique.”

One- and two-bed­room units are avail­able and are priced from the low $200,000s. Two colour pal­ettes (Dawn and Dusk) pro­vide the back­drop to liv­ing.

In­te­ri­ors fea­ture over­height doors and ceil­ings, quartz coun­ter­tops, wide plank wood lam­i­nate floor­ing, porce­lain tiles and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.
