“With over a quarter of a century of experience in B.C. and Alberta, I can confidently say that Park Point represents Qualex-Landmark’s finest work, inside and out,” says, Qualex-Landmark™ President Mohammed Esfahani. “We owe a tremendous gratitude to Axiom Builders, IBI Group, Trepp Design, and Durante Kreuk for their dedication and patience over the last three years.”
The iconic Park Point residential tower marks a new architectural masterpiece in Calgary at its prominent location on the corner of 2nd Street and 12 Avenue S.W. which is a hotspot for exciting urban living right on the historic Central Memorial Park and overlooking Memorial Park Library.
Construction began in the fall of 2015 and the development has progressed on schedule, hitting every milestone in its advancement into the Calgary skyline. To achieve this, there were up to 170-200 workers on-site over a certain course of the project and during peak times and an average of 135 people working every day to ensure the project’s success.
Designed by the global architectural firm IBI Group, Park Point features 289, one, two, and three bedroom homes including live/work townhomes. With its black and white façade, as cited from the park and downtown, Park Point has a strong and unique vertical architecture which resembles an exclamation point with the podium at its base as the dot.
As the building rises, the floorplate grows to create a stepped effect with a color enhancing pattern. From street level, an elegant double-height lobby with a natural stone floor and wall tile surrounds the interior and a distinctive and inviting exterior canopy further adds to the prestige nature of the address.
Located atop the tower podium on the third floor, Park Point hosts an expansive list of sophisticated indoor and outdoor amenities within a 9,000 sq. ft. amenities area.
The outdoor amenity space includes:
- a Zen Terrace with seating and water feature
- social air lounge seating with fire-pit, bbq area with a large harvest table
- a sundeck overlooking Central Memorial Park
Indoor amenities include:
- a fully equipped fitness facility with state-of-the-art exercise equipment,
- park facing yoga / Pilates Studio
- steam room
- infrared sauna and his/hers change rooms with showers.
Park Point is nestled amongst some of Calgary’s most popular and trendy venues. This is just one of many reasons why the neighbourhood has ranked the best place to live in 2018 over 185 other suburbs in the surrounding areas. Residents are within walking distance to a variety of trendy restaurants and bars, such as; Native Tongue Taqueria (2-minute walk), Hop in Brew Pub (2-minute walk), Ten Foot Henry (4-minute walk), Vine Arts Wine Spirits (5 minutes) and Vintage Chophouse and Tavern (3-minute walk) just to name a few.
It is then, no surprise that according to Walk Score, the Beltline received a commendable 90 out of a possible 100 points. Park Point residents are sure to appreciate this as they have the ability to live within walking distance to some of the city’s best locations, such as:
