Connecting the dots between peace of mind, life in the city and liveable space, John Keells Properties announced the launch of ‘TRI-ZEN’, a new residential property on Union Place. These smart living spaces in the heart of Colombo are for women and men on the go in the city; a stone’s throw from its many business hubs, yet designed for comfort and style. The project is expected to be completed by 2023 and is currently open for sales.

John Keells Properties leads the charge on the property development and real estate sector in Sri Lanka, with a significant portfolio of real estate in Colombo and the suburbs. The company’s most recent acquisition is a property on Vauxhall Street valued at Rs 4.2 Billion.

It is also the property developer transforming Colombo’s cityscape with Cinnamon Life, the ongoing Integrated Resort bordering the Beira Lake.

TRI-ZEN is John Keells Properties’ newest project focusing on metropolitan spaces that cater to the needs of Colombo’s growing class of working elite. From Union Place, TRI-ZEN’s residents will have immediate access to the city’s best hospitals, restaurants, schools, hotels, shopping malls and more. Moreover, its central location takes hours spent in traffic out of the equation-which means residents can luxuriate in the extra time freed up every day to spend time with family and friends.

TRI-ZEN’s apartments are based on smart design principles to maximize space and comfort, and this efficient design allows these apartments to be affordably priced. Common open spaces are a key design feature throughout the property; the perfect spaces for conversation, relaxation and contemplation. This project is designed for both solitude and company- stay in on a Sunday and enjoy the city’s drowsy reverie, or go out on a Friday night to one of the many cafes, bistros and restaurants situated only minutes away.

“TRI-ZEN meets and exceeds the expectations on location, style and comfort. When we designed this complex, we dedicated a lot of resources to understanding the market – to analyse customer needs and wants,” noted Suresh Rajendra, President of the John Keells Property Group. He also added, “Colombo is changing, and with it our clients’ lifestyles and tastes are changing. We’re responding to this by really thinking about how we can redefine what it means to live well in Colombo. So this is an exciting project for us, as we strengthen our metropolitan property portfolio by creating eminently livable spaces for our clients.”

Innovative concept set to take off in new year

Landmark Developers, Sri Lanka’s new property developer with innovative concepts and ideas for modern homes, has launched “Comfort Dwellings”, a brand-new affordable housing concept for the new year.

“Comfort Dwellings”comprises affordable, high-quality homes with modern contemporary designs and architecture. All homes will be custom-built with an emphasis on promoting a sustainable lifestyle. Located in fast-developing suburban areas such as Thalahena, Malabe, Athurugiriya, Thalangama, Kaduwela, Kottawa, and Homagama,“Comfort Dwellings” homes will be in close proximity to all modern conveniences required for a family to live comfortably. All homes will be single or two-storied with a total area of 1,000 sq.ft. upwards with 2-3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 car parks as well as pantry, dining, kitchen and living room. Clients will be able to customise the homes as per their requirements in consultation with Landmark’s designing team while the latest technology will be utilised to provide a state-of-the-art home. The homes will be ideal for individuals in the middle-income bracket such as senior executives and managers who are looking to invest in their first home.

All “Comfort Dwellings” homes will include local authority approvals, land survey, access to loan facilities, tax benefits for the expatriate community, legal and financial consultations, water and electricity connections, fixed phone lines, cable TV connections and maintenance facilities. Landmark Developers sources most of the materials for the homes through local companies with all of them being reputed, high-quality brands of international standards.

Lead by a renowned businesswoman with over thirty years of experience in the design field and driven by a young, dedicated and enthusiastic team, Landmark Developers is a one-stop solution for innovative real estate solutions providing end-to-end services to clients in a collaborative environment to meet the varying requirements of every client. Along with their design and construction expertise, the company also offers legal, financial and banking consultancy services. Landmark currently has a partnership in the US with a focus on the states of California and Texas. In Australia, the company is operating in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane through their real estate partners.

Elaborating on the concept of “Comfort Dwellings”, Eksith Hapangama – Managing Director of Landmark Developers stated, “As a fast-growing urban housing provider, we commenced Comfort Dwellings primarily because we identified a need in the real estate market for individuals who are looking to purchase their first home at an affordable price of around Rs.8 million upwards in the immediate suburbs of Colombo such as Thalahena, Malabe, Athurugiriya, Thalangama, Kaduwela, Kottawa, and Homagama areas. This new concept is in line with our Vision to ‘be the leader in Sri Lankan sustainable real estate solutions with a global presence’. It provides the perfect opportunity for clients to custom-build a modern home for sustainable living. The new generation wants space to socialize, so it’s less about the square footage and more about its beauty and aesthetics.” He added that the company strongly believes in incorporating technology into their homes. “For instance, you should be able to control everything in your home from your smartphone or tab while on the move. Such smart technology is vital to take Sri Lankan homes to the next level in terms ofinnovation and convenience.Building sustainable, self-sufficient homes is also an important aspect of “Comfort Dwellings”. If a home can acquire water through tube wells and rainwater harvesting and use solar power to generate electricity, we are looking at a scenario where there is minimum or even zero dependency on an outside party for both water and electricity,” he added.

Landmark Developers also focuses on the construction of low, mid and high-rise buildings for residential and commercial purposes including the management of such properties and providing construction expertise and services to clients. Nano Homes, a first-of-its-kind concept pioneered by the company where the design is based on a combination of pre-engineered sections and sustainable construction, is another notable solution offered by them.
