Located in the heart of Calgary’s Beltline, these eight street-level residences were designed with flexibility for use as a traditional home or combination home/office — anything from a small law or accounting firm to a studio or art gallery. Each Park Point townhome offers street-level frontage and signage opportunities that blend in seamlessly with the residential tower and neighbourhood.
“We’re confident that our live-work townhomes meet the needs of those who work from home,” said Qualex-Landmark president Mohammed Esfahani in a release. “We envision residents setting up a private office on the second floor of the live-work unit. These work spaces will look out onto Central Memorial Park and/or open onto a private patio and communal landscaped courtyard on the third floor.”
All live-work townhomes at Park Point feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious patio for outdoor living with spectacular views of the city. Spanning 12th Avenue SW and 2nd Street SW, the two-storey townhomes are available in six spacious floorplans ranging in size from 1,025 to 1,045 square feet. Suites are priced from the $680,000s.
The benefits of live-work townhomes can be enjoyed by those both self-employed and employed. Employers that recognize the advantages of their employees working from home may enjoy savings associated with a smaller head office. Residents may be entitled to claiming home office expenses, which may translate into tax savings. Appealing to parents with young children, living and working within a home environment reduces the need for daycare and also frees up time for recreational activities.
In cities like Calgary, where fluctuations in the economy are not uncommon, homebuyers will have the added piece of mind and security that a live-work home will provide more accessible employment options should the need arise. Live-work homes also offer a safe investment for homebuyers.
“Real estate properties in central locations that allow multiple uses command greater future resale potential and make for a very solid investment,” Esfahani said.
To further complement a work-life balance, Park Point residents will enjoy nearly 9,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, which include a furnished guest suite for out-of-town visitors, private social lounge with a kitchen and fireplace, fully-equipped fitness facility, park-facing yoga/Pilates studio, steam room, sauna, ‘his and hers’ change rooms and showers, Zen garden terrace with seating and a water feature, outdoor lounge with a fire pit and barbecue area, and an open-air yoga/Pilates deck. Park Point owners will also have access to a range of conveniences for their exclusive use, including: out-of-suite storage lockers; secured underground visitor parking garage; bike storage room and repair station; an area to wash cars, bikes and dogs; free WiFi in the amenity areas and lobby; and 24 hour concierge service.
