The Coral Properties biggest development of ‘Coral Plus’ is now been constructed at Marine Drive Colombo which is a 20 floor, 60 unit apartment project. The total investment for this project is Rs. 1.6 billion and would be completed in 2019 December.

He said that two of their projects Coral X and Coral Lake Minerva in Rajagiriya both offing 24 luxury units each are now in the piling stage and would be ready by end of 2019. He said that the total cost for this project is Rs. 2 billion.

“We have also invested Rs.1 billion in Coral Saffron in Mount Lavinia which is a 15 storied project offering 77 apartments to be completed by 2019.”

Dr. Praba said that though there is a slight drop in demand for up market luxury condominiums there is an increase requirement for mix-market housing unit due to the migration to Colombo. “Due to the government’s scheme to allow foreigners to buy properties in Sri Lanka we also see a demand especially from Chinese for the apartment sector. This will increase with the commencement of the Port City Project in Colombo.”
