He lauded GVR Lanka for taking on an ambitious project which offers those who wish to make Kandy their home, a living space that reflects Kandy’s future promise. He stressed it was only a matter of time before the modern infrastructure of the proposed highway and faster trains, will make Kandy the headquarters of choice for many companies that wish to have a practical outreach to all provinces. He drew the attention of the crowd to what really dictates cost which is the quality of the building material and the quality of the architects, engineers and contractors and not the land value which is thinly distributed. He emphasized that the value of the cost today can only be cheaper than tomorrow.
Mr. Rajendra Theagarajah – Chief Executive Officer NDB Bank speaking at the event said, “NDB is truly delighted to be part of this project in Kandy. We have always strived to give the word ‘development’ a new meaning, and our aim is to provide total Banking solutions that strengthen one’s capacity to do better, which in turn makes your community do better; if this aggregation is fulfilled, the whole country will subsequently prosper. Dynasty Residence fits well into our definition of development, as it encompasses a vision to offer superior living accommodation in Kandy. It has therefore proven to be worthy of our support and association.”
