Commenting on the successful ground-breaking ceremony of Achilleon, Dr.Hiran Hettiarachchi (MBBS-Colombo & MBA-Australia), Group Chairman of Blue Mountain said, “It gives me great pride to commence construction on Achilleion, such a definitive and iconic project that will herald a new chapter in the industry and crown the city’s skyline. The exciting appeal of the project is evident by the fact that over 50% of apartments, were sold before construction began. Apart from the high return on investment of this project, Achilleion will set the stage for new high value properties in Sri Lanka, while boosting our appeal to attract foreign investors. We are a proud Sri Lankan company and look forward to delivering the spectacular project in 2020.”

In this project, Blue Mountain Apartments partnered with the renowned Singapore-based Palmer and Turner Group and interior design firm Index. Achilleion was recognised at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2016/2017, one of the region’s top awards shows that is dedicated to acknowledging exceptional real-estate projects across the region.

The complex will be built on a land which is valued at Rs. 2.34 billion, which is one of the biggest land acquisitions in Sri Lanka in recent history. The project site is located in Bambalapitiya, Colombo 4 in close proximity to Colombo’s main shopping centres, schools, restaurants and supermarkets. Its proximity to the Indian Ocean and the stunning vistas it will offer residents makes it a compelling investment.

Achilleion will deliver discerning home-owners cutting-edge facilities, which have been incorporated into the property’s iconic design. In order to ensure that residents always travel in style, the complex will offer access to a rooftop helipad and a private helicopter for the use of the residents. A fleet of 5 Mercedes Benz luxury cars will also be available for residents to use at their leisure.

This state-of-the-art complex will also feature Sri Lanka’s first-ever sky bridge, the tallest sky restaurant by sea and an infinity pool, which will offer breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean and the vibrant Marine Drive stretch.
