The accomplishment of this milestone, along with other ongoing work in MEP and finishing, now positions the project well on track for overall completion by end 2025.”
Attended by representatives of both shareholders, project consultants, regulatory authorities and other dignitaries, and hosted on the rooftop of the rear towers, the occasion afforded invitees a taste of the panoramic views of the Colombo Harbour, Colombo City, Port City and Indian Ocean, that discerning homeowners will get to call their own.
The Project Director and Marina Square Board Member, Mr. Kosala Wickramasinghe, sharing his thoughts at the event attributed the vast resources, strength and experience of Access Engineering and CHEC for sustained construction activities through challenging periods and noted, “The development will surely revolutionise the urban luxury living experience in the country, with our curated spaces and range of amenities that have been thoughtfully designed to suit the requirements of every modern homeowner. It is the perfect place in Colombo to witness the city’s transformation while experiencing the comfort of convenience in every aspect.”
Mr. Wang Gang, Joint Managing Director of Chine Harbour Engineering Company, further commented on the importance of this achievement to the industry as a whole; “This structural completion is not just a milestone for Marina Square, but also for the entire construction industry in our country. It sends a strong message that even in difficult times, we can persevere and emerge stronger”
Marina Square is located on a five-acre expanse and boasts 1088 condominiums across five towers of 36 floors, as well as two acres of open to sky gardens and recreational areas.
