Nowhere in Canada are things booming like they are in Calgary (the city had the country’s highest home sales growth and it’s poised to become the country’s economic leader in 2013) – and all that growth means new developments. Among Cowtown’s most exciting and anticipated projects is Qualex-Landmark‘s 34-storey Mark on 10th.
Conceived by award-winning designers Rafii Architect in partnership with BKDI Architects Inc., Mark on 10th will be built on the corner of 8th Street and 10th Avenue S.W., the site of the old Western Canadian Graphics building in Calgary’s bustling Betline neighbourhood.
“We love the mix of old and new, big and tall buildings,” said Parham Mahboubi, Qualex-Landmark‘s vice-president of marketing and new developments, of the surrounding area to the Calgary Herald. “It is an established neighbourhood. You don’t have to wait a decade for the community to mature.”
You certainly don’t. The neighbourhood is already packed with all the amenities and conveniences you could want. In fact, Mark on 10th has received a Walk Score rating of 97 per cent, which means the location is as a “walker’s paradise” where most daily errands do not require a car.
But as impressive as the neighbourhood is, so too are the amenities that the tower itself boasts. Each home in the secure building will feature over-height doors and ceilings, expansive energy-efficient window-walls, wood-laminate flooring, broadloom carpet, porcelain tiles, upscale German-made Nobilia cabinetry (a first in North America), stainless steel German-made Liebherr and AEG appliances, quartz countertops and luxury bathrooms.
Mark on 10th is currently in the preconstruction phase, but demolition of the old Western Canadian Graphics building is nearly complete – as you’ll see in the photos below. Savvy real estate hunters will want to register as soon as possible, because with homes starting in the low $200,000s, you know the 270 units won’t last long once they hit the market.
