Project update!



Dr Sarath Amunugama, Minister of Enterprise Development and Investment Promotion inspects the construction site of Havelock City. He is accompanied by Prof. Lakshman R.Watawala, Chairman/ Director General of the BOI and a number of senior officials of the BOI. The Havelock City is the single largest mixed use estate development project to be undertaken in South Asia. It is developed on a 19 acre site in Colombo. The development cost of the project is over US$ 250 million. The complex would comprise of 1,080 apartment units. The first phase which is already under construction will consist of 226 apartments. When completed there will be 8 towers of which the tallest will have 29 floors.

Can we start a thread for project updates, coz that would bring all the updated in to one point! by the way Amunugama is a great man!

Havelock City seems to be going at a snail's pace.. Still, its encouraging to see there is at least some work going on.

About the thread, may be it would be better if a mod could make a sticky and add the links to all the project update topics in the forum and then regularly update the status (percentages ?, newest pictures ?) in the thread when the original topic gets updated.

Well, actually like I said, this is nowhere near Colombo 1 or 2, so it would look rather scattered.

Colombo 6 this is in Colombo 5 and would certainly be an iconic part of that area, largescale projects like these can uplift the entire area around it...

Hotness ! The Render in the first page Flash is awesome ! But it seems like Phase 1 doesn't include the Commercial area which is the part I'm most looking forward to.

This is a common strategy use by real state developers, they usually start from residential segment N make $ out of it and continue the rest by looking for other investment as well.
