Project Description

The Marke Apartments

Designed by COE Architecture International, this prestigious project is located on 4.15 acres within the MacArthur Place Master Plan. “Welcome to Everything” is the tagline of The Marke, a new upscale 300-unit apartment development, offered by Lyon Communities. This exclusive community is the ideal destination for those who crave upper crust living. The Marke’s signature “Experience 360”, an all-encompassing lifestyle and amenity concept designed to enhance every aspect of residential life, is sure to please the most discriminating clientele. From customized fitness programs, concierge, housekeeping and food/beverage services, to a pet spa, complimentary bike rentals and on-call massage therapist, the range of services at The Marke is well beyond the norm. An expansive rooftop resort features a saltwater pool and spa, fitness and business centers, private cabanas, firepits, outdoor theater, two bowling lanes, billiards and table tennis.

Fuscoe provided full civil engineering services for the project, including innovative drainage design for stormwater runoff. The Marke’s landscaped areas became the ideal space for stormwater capture. Sustainable stormwater planters for bioretention were integrated along the perimeter of the apartment complex, acting as a hydrologic source control as well as a Low Impact Development (LID) BMP. Stormwater runoff from the building’s exterior is intercepted by these stormwater planters and cleansed by filtration through vegetation and an engineered soil mix. The treated runoff is then discharged through an underdrain system to the project’s main stormwater treatment facility, a storm filter within the building’s subterranean garage, before being discharged into the city’s storm drain system.
