Blue Mountain Achilleion continues winning streak at ‘Asia Property Awards’ in Singapore
November 14, 2017 –
- Chairman Dr. Hiran Hettiarachchi addresses the Asia Real Estate Summit representing Sri Lanka’s property sector
Blue Mountain Achillieon won the ‘Best Condo Architectural Design’ at a gala event at the ‘Asia Property Awards’ held on 8 November at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. This will be the 24th accolade that Achillieon has won internationally.
Blue Mountain Group Chairman Dr. Hiran Hettiarachchi also represented Sri Lanka’s property sector at the prestigious regional summit, where he delivered a speech at the summit and took part in a panel discussion on ‘Digging deeper into the project of the century: One Belt One Road.’
Achilleion’s iconic design and structure of the development is being supported by the global real estate titan, Palmer & Turner (P&T) Group Singapore, heralded as the No. 2 ranked residential developer in the world. P&T is reputed for only working in high value projects around the world, being extremely selective about the credentials of the property and its potential in becoming a landmark project. Enhancing the property’s value even further, the complex’s plush interiors are being curated by Index Design, a leading interior design practise also based in Singapore, which reflects the ultra-modern and latest international style that the apartments will deflect.
Commenting on the win at the prestigious Asia Real Estate Summit, Dr. Hettiarachchi said: “I am truly honoured with our win and am pleased that our company was able to bring glory to Sri Lanka yet again. I am proud to showcase the strength and quality of our growing real estate industry. I was privileged to speak before leaders from Asia’s property markets and to be part of the distinguished panel of judges. China’s ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative has repercussions for the region and I am pleased to be able to share my views at the panel discussion, as it is important for Sri Lanka too, to realise how it will be impacted. This opportunity extended to me is a triumph for Sri Lanka’s property market and I am hopeful that it will help position the country as an attractive destination for real estate investments. The Blue Mountain Group has charted a bold and ambitious vision through its projects, especially Achilleion, which will herald Sri Lanka’s first seven-star luxury apartment.”
Achilleion was recently recognised as one of the top three apartments in the Asia-Pacific region, at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2017. The iconic real estate development received a record number of eight awards including two 5-Star awards and emerged as the only Sri Lankan real estate development to be honoured at the event. This recognition enabled Blue Mountain’s Achilleion to compete against global real estate titans for the title of ‘Best Apartment in the World’ at the ‘World Property Awards 2017’, in November later this year.
