The Mark, a 33-story residential high-rise building going up in the East Village neighborhood of downtown San Diego, is preparing for the final release of over 50 residences.

The final unit release isn't the only milestone The Mark is celebrating. In late September Mayor Jerry Sanders, local dignitaries, construction crews and local business owners, along with Douglas Wilson Cos., celebrated the topping out of The Mark. The construction milestone, when construction crews completed the frame for the sleek 33-story steel-and-glass tower now reaching 380 feet, officially makes The Mark the tallest building in the booming East Village.

Sales of luxury condominium homes at the $155 million, mixed-use project at Market Street and Eighth Avenue are at the 70 percent point, said Peggy O'Connell, vice president of sales and marketing for The Mark.

O'Connell reports that 140 of the 200 released residential units are now reserved at The Mark, which is comprised of 220 one- and two-bedroom condominiums, 13 penthouse suites and 11 walk-up brick townhomes. Ranging in size from approximately 744 to 1,950 square feet, prices start from the high $400,000s and go upwards of $2 million.

"These chic and urbane dwellings -- especially the stunningly sophisticated one-bedroom units -- are proving ideal as primary residences for single professionals and empty-nesters who want to experience dynamic downtown living," she said.

In addition to its prime location in the heart of vibrant East Village, buyers are impressed with the casual urban elegance of the building's architecture and the airy and spacious floor plan designs.

The distinctive development boasts a broad selection of floor plans, each featuring the finest appointments, designer materials and the latest appliances presented in exciting custom-like packages. European cabinetry, imported marble and limestone, oversized open-air balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows are just a few of the many elegant design features available to residents of The Mark.

The project is on schedule for completion in April 2007 and all townhomes are expected to be complete in late January.

Dynamic downtown living

The Mark represents an "architectural breakthrough and will leave a lasting impression on the downtown skyline," explained developer Doug Wilson.

"The Mark's contemporary design will be expressed in the sleek glass and steel tower soaring close to 400 feet above the residential community's street-level townhomes and retail shops," said Wilson, chairman and CEO of San Diego-based Douglas Wilson Cos.

With construction moving quickly, buyers should hurry to the Sales Studio at Eighth and Island streets, which showcases a contemporary and fully functioning kitchen and lavish bathroom, as well as elaborate displays of the many innovative design elements and chic styling points of The Mark.

Located just blocks from Petco Park, The Mark's residential tower offers some of the most fashionable and contemporary crafted condominium homes in Southern California. Adding to the allure of this upscale lifestyle are the stunning ocean and city views, abundance of underground parking and the ease of walking from the front door to neighborhood restaurants, waterfront attractions, shopping destinations and trendy art galleries.

The Mark is really about lifestyle, said O'Connell. "Every exciting cultural and recreational attraction that downtown has to offer is just steps away, yet buyers who love the urban lifestyle don't have to sacrifice generous space for family members, furniture and activities."
