As cooler weather hits, Calgarians who work downtown are going to be looking for ways to stay warm, but also maintain the amenity packed lifestyle they enjoyed when the weather was warmer.
“In the winter months especially, downtown living provides an unparalleled accessibility to workplaces and many outstanding amenities for professionals who work downtown,” says Parham Mahboubi, vice-president of planning and marketing for Qualex-Landmark™, developer of the recently launched Park Point residential community.
The new collection of homes, located in the heart of Calgary’s Beltline, will be a 34-storey, mixed-use residential tower of 289 residences — one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment-style condos and penthouses, seamlessly partnered with eight street-level, live-work townhomes.
Accessibility is an important factor for Park Point buyers, Mahboubi says.
“When it’s cold outside especially, you want to minimize your commute,” he says, pointing out that Park Point provides immediate access to Calgary’s +15 network of raised, covered and heated walkways through the city. The closest entrance to the +15 SkyWalk is just two and a half blocks from your front door at Park Point.
The walkability of Park Point is exceptional. So much so that the development recently received a walk score that classifies it as a “walker’s paradise.”
As Calgarians spend more time indoors during the winter months, they will find lots to do in the neighbourhood around Park Point. Spend the day at the Core Shopping Centre in Calgary’s city centre, stroll down the National Historic Stephen’s Walk four blocks away, or check out the range of eclectic shops in Calgary’s Design District along 10th and 11th Avenue, just a couple blocks walk away.
After work, if you are looking to warm up and treat yourself to a drink or dinner on the town, Park Point’s Beltline neighbourhood is a hub for some of Calgary’s best restaurants and bars.
How about some hearty house-made sausage from Taste Kitchen and Lounge? Taiko Taco food truck delivers a mean pork belly taco, infused with Asian flavours like spicy Korean gochujang, fermented kimchi and nutty black sesame. Boxwood Café offers Sunday suppers, a dinner made with seasonal ingredients that’s ready for you to take home on a chilly Sunday evening this fall. For those who commute everyday and need a filling and delicious option for the way home, these are some of Calgary’s best.
The winter months aren’t just for cosying up with a cup of hot cocoa. They are also your opportunity to buckle down and be your best self.
“At Park Point, we give our residents the resources they need to get fit and get some rest and relaxation, all without having to leave the building,” says Parham Mahboubi, vice-president of planning and marketing for Qualex-Landmark™, developer of the up-and-coming Park Point residential community.
Park Point’s fully equipped gym is perfect for professionals seeking a fit and healthy lifestyle and is conveniently located within the tower podium so residents don’t need to exit the building. The Park Point fitness facility, exclusive to residents and their guests, offers state-of-the-art equipment, a yoga studio, and a steam room and infrared sauna with showers. “We designed our amenities to help residents streamline and simplify their lives,” Mahboubi says.
When you buy a home, you need to make sure it will stand the test of time. Innovative and thoughtful design coupled with a long history of land development expertise will live up to that. Qualex-Landmark™ keeps its promise to completing the projects that it starts irrespective of market conditions, while placing high emphasis on customer service.
“According to a recent third-party survey by Avid Survey, Park Point is well above the Canada-wide average of 82 per cent with 94 per cent in overall homebuyer satisfaction,” says Jordan Beach, vice-president of sales and service for Qualex-Landmark™.
Having a reputable developer with a solid and extensive track record for building your home is key, says Parham Mahboubi, vice-president of planning and marketing for Qualex-Landmark™.
“Qualex-Landmark™ has built its brand with many solid successes. The company has performed again and again to design and build outstanding homes for Calgarians.” The quality and craftsmanship at Park Point will be obvious the moment you walk in the door — and the quality finishes are evident in the Park Point discovery centre, too.
Kitchens include a fully integrated upscale AEG and Liebherr appliance package with a gas cooktop from Germany, delivering European ingenuity and quality for anyone who is inspired to create their own culinary masterpiece.
The value is also apparent in the spa-like bathrooms. They feature Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry with marble countertops, porcelain tile backsplash and flooring accented by polished-chrome tap fixtures and accessories.
The floor plans were designed to use space intelligently and maximize natural light, Mahboubi says. Living areas are open concept to let in the sunshine, a quality that is enhanced further by the over-height, seven-foot suite entry and interior doors, expansive windows, and approximately nine-foot ceilings in living areas.
The quality of a Park Point home doesn’t just make it a great place to live, it makes Park Point a great investment.
