Construction of the super structure of Marina Square Project commenced last week, with the selection of China Harbour Engineering Company as the main contractor of the project. CHEC has been actively involved in the development of Sri Lanka since 1998, executing massive construction projects such as the Southern Highway, Outer Circular Highway, Hambantota Port, Mattala International Airport, Colombo South Container Terminal, Port City, Shangri-La, Havelock City and many other major infrastructure projects.
Addressing the gathering at the inauguration ceremony, Access Engineering PLC Chairman Sumal Perera said, 'I would also like to thank our two multinational partners for their confidence in Sri Lanka and their trust to partner with Access Engineering in the Marina Square project. It's very seldom that part of a Fortune 500 enterprise such as China Harbour Engineering would partner a local company for a project of such magnitude. In this aspect we believe we have set the benchmark for other local companies whatever the industry they maybe to encourage their foreign partners to invest with them in Sri Lanka.'
'We will do everything in our purview to ensure that Marina Square achieves an unprecedented level of success and assure potential customers a rewarding return on their investments,' he added.
The Marina Square Project is a multinational real estate investment, three industry giants from three countries having come together for the first time in Sri Lanka to jointly develop this unique project. Access Engineering of Sri Lanka, China Harbour Engineering Company of China and Mustafa of Singapore will be partnering to deliver this harbour front, ocean view residential development.
China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd. (Sri Lanka) Managing Director Zang Xiaoqiang said, 'We are very happy to be selected as the main contractor of the Marina Square Project. We believe that our vast experience in successfully completing many of Sri Lanka's mega projects helped us to be selected as the main contractor of the Marina Square project. Most importantly it was CHEC's successful completion of Shangri-La Residencies and our involvement in the development of Havelock City that gave us an edge over the competition. We have agreed to retain and assign the construction team that successfully completed the Shangri-La Residencies to build Marina Square.'
The Marina Square Uptown Colombo development embraces and amplifies the concept of 'urban luxury' throughout the residential units and common facilities made available to homeowners. The expansive two plus acres of landscaped walking/jogging tracks, garden spaces, nooks and corners to hang out with friends and family adds to the experience of Urban Luxury. The infinity pool, the club house, game room, unprecedented kids play area and indoor and outdoor gyms are all designed with discerning city dwellers in mind. Even the commercial element situated within the complex is designed for the convenience of the residents of Marina Square, epitomising the concept of urban luxury. The commercial area consisting of a food court, retail outlets, wellness services and selected office spaces all supplement and complement the needs of the Marina Square Uptown Colombo residents.
The ocean front location of Marina Square offers magnificent and breathtakingly captivating views of the ocean, city and mountains from within most of the condos in the complex. It is undoubtedly the best location to watch the future of Colombo unfolding, with the Port City development taking shape over the next few decades. With the Port City close at hand and access to the inner-city elevated expressway just a mere kilometre away, Marina Square is truly at the heart of tomorrow's Colombo.
The construction of the project commenced in 2018 and is expected to be completed by 2022. The project is expected to start handing over the apartments to homeowners from the fourth quarter of 2022 through to the second quarter of 2023.
