IBI Group designs new luxury condo for Calgary’s downtown
DateDecember 11, 2014
CALGARY – The Calgary skyline is getting a bold addition courtesy of Park Point, a new luxury-class condo designed by IBI Group.
Plans for the 34-storey Park Point were unveiled this week by the developers, Qualex-Landmark. The new condo will look over Central Memorial Park at 12 Ave. and 2 St. S.W. in south-central Calgary. In its final form the mixed-use project will have two towers, and include many luxurious amenities.
Tony Wai, the IBI project architect, said the park-side location of the condo offers unique advantages.
“Park Point’s towers are designed as one complete architectural expression,” he said. “This means its location overlooking Central Memorial Park offers viewers the opportunity to admire Calgary’s most modern urban residence as a whole, without other buildings obstructing the view. This isn’t possible in denser parts of downtown.”
Park Point’s third floor will have an outdoor yoga/pilates sundeck, a Zen terrace, and an open-air lounge with a firepit, barbecues, and seating. Inside, residents will have access to a steam room with sauna and change room facilities, a private owner’s lounge, and a guest suite available in each tower for out-of-town visitors.
Condo units go on sale in early 2015 with construction to start later that year. Phase one is expected to be completed in 2017.
