The countdown is on, as MARK on 10th is down to its last few homes
If there ever was a time for urgency when looking for your new Beltline home, then that time is now, as MARK on 10th is already more than 96 per cent sold and going fast.
It’s a pretty impressive success rate for the 274-unit, 35-storey mixed-use tower with a retail and office podium by Qualex-Landmark, considering that sales only started about 15 months ago.
“We’re standing at 96 per cent of homes sold already, and that number changes almost every day,” says Parham Mahboubi, vice-president of marketing and new developments at Qualex-Landmark. “People will soon be able to see the building rise up out of the ground further raising the excitement level for this development.”
He quickly adds that all the remaining units have the qualities that have made MARK on 10th the success it has been, including unobstructed views at accessible starting prices. Height-wise, the lowest remaining unit, as of this writing, is a one-bedroom that sits on the 18th floor. “This north-facing unit has a spectacular panoramic city view.”
Speaking of views, MARK’s outstanding 6,000-square-foot fitness club and lounge on the top floor, coined Altitude 330’, is the perfect spot to catch the Stampede fireworks in the summer, or to just enjoy the sunset with wine and friends. The landscaped open-air urban garden on the third floor is one of the largest in the city and is yet another spectacular amenity that makes MARK one of the best urban condos around.
When 25-year-old, up-and-coming real estate investor, Imad Saleem first checked out MARK’s show suite he was instantly impressed — so impressed in fact that he bought two units in the building.
“I was planning on just investing, but I really fell in love with the building and I wanted to live there myself,” he explains. “The amenities are phenomenal, I don’t think any other developer is doing anything like it.”
He is just one of the multitude of young professionals working in Calgary’s booming downtown who have taken a shine to MARK’s complete urban living package.
The shared indoor rooftop amenities include a fitness centre with state-of-the-art cardio equipment, free weights and universal gym, Yoga / Pilates studio, infrared sauna, steam room, men’s and women’s private change rooms, bathrooms and shower facilities. While the lounge has a wet bar and media centre, billiards table and seating to accommodate small or large gatherings, and of course, Wi-Fi connectivity.
The hip, modern finish of each suite is also appealing to this demographic. Dreamt up by renowned interior design firm, Trepp Design Inc., MARK’s interiors offer a fresh modern look that utilizes every inch of livable space.
Standard finishes and furnishing in each MARK suite is already top-of-the-line and infused with a distinct European feel. “The materials themselves are not only of unusual quality but the attention to detail and care in their articulation within the suites is undeniable,” says designer, Scott Trepp.
The kitchens are unlike anything else in the city, he says, featuring the upscale German-made Nobilia kitchen cabinetry, which is being introduced to Calgary for the first time, a first in North America. The kitchen also has stainless steel Liebherr and AEG appliance package, all of them are standard in every home. It delivers German ingenuity, matchless in quality, offering MARK residents an inspiring European cooking experience. Buyers can still check out MARK’s show rooms at its sales centre on 10th Avenue S.W. to see how brilliantly each aspect is brought together.
MARK started with nine floor plans ranging from 450 to 980 square-feet. Among those still available is the 646-square-foot Plan B with a southeast exposure on the 18th floor and is offered at $392,800. A five per cent down equates to $19,640. “It’s a very attainable home, offering fantastic value with a very low deposit,” Mahboubi says.
But it is MARK’s location that is its crowning glory, and is the key to a carefree, convenient lifestyle. It’s at the very heart of the Beltline on the corner of 8th Street and 10th Avenue S.W., within walking distance to the downtown core, the surrounding entertainment districts, groceries and close to a few colleges and universities.
“Our residents will have all the benefits of downtown living — walking to work, to shop, close to all essential services or to enjoy the multitude of open spaces, restaurants and diners just outside our doors,” Mahboubi says.
“MARK is all about worry-free comfort and convenience. At MARK, homeowners can focus on their careers, appreciation of the arts, entertainment, socializing, outings and the comforts of living in an upscale and sophisticated building close to absolutely everything instead of maintenance of a single family suburban home,” he adds.
