Owning an address in Ward Place now made a reality by Prime Group
Dec 09, 2016 – Construction on Prime Grand, an upmarket, 36 floor, 316 unit apartment complex by Prime Group got underway on 6 December at Ward Place. Currently the largest and tallest apartment project in the prestigious neighbourhood, built on a land over an acre in extent and fully owned by Prime Group, it will be ready for occupancy by 2020.
Envisioned as the grandest of apartment homes in the heart of Ward Place, the project will offer potential home owners the opportunity to invest in duplex penthouses, four bedroom Presidential Suites, two and three bedroom apartments, with the smallest units offering over 1,120 square feet of spacious living space.
Prime Group Chairman Brahmanage Premalal said: “We are no strangers to Colombo 7, with five projects underway in Barnes Place, Kynsey Road, Jawatte and two on Bauddhaloka Mawatha. We were fortunate to come across well over an acre of land in this prestigious location and we made a strategic decision to acquire it outright given the lack of large land blocks in key residential neighbourhoods in Colombo. We also had the backing of our most trusted clientele, some of whom had already reserved over 25% of the apartments even before the official launch of the project.”
Prime Grand will be a self-contained lifestyle complex, featuring a 71 meter infinity pool on the 31st floor boasting a pool bar, restaurant and an exclusive entertainment area. The design also incorporates an extensive recreational area on the 5th floor, complete with a state of the art gym, a 36 meter pool, a world class spa, badminton court, function rooms, coffee shops amongst many other facilities.
The design also incorporates natural ventilation within the apartment space to minimise heat built-up and also reduce energy consumption used in cooling the space. Even the smallest apartment will enjoy two parking spaces with a double height parking floor, in keeping with the needs of current households with two vehicles. Each apartment will also have a maid’s room with an attached bathroom for the convenience of the residents.
The unique design of ‘Prime Grand’ ensures absolute privacy of the residents in overcoming a common problem in most high-rise apartment complexes, which is the visibility between adjacent apartments, diminishing the concept of privacy.
Prime Group is working closely with renowned chartered architects and engineering company Design Group Five International for Prime Grand to ensure the project meets international standards from the design stage all the way through the final finishes. The structural engineering work will be undertaken by Civil & Structural Engineering Consultants Ltd. under the supervision of Design Group Five International, while Singapore-based IIDA International Design Ltd. will undertake the interior design. In order to ensure the highest standard with Prime Grand’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing requirements, Prime Group has appointed Meinhardt Ltd. (Singapore) for its MEP Peer review.
The exemplary track record with past projects has also enabled Prime Group to obtain all clearances and permits required for the project well in advance, ensuring a successful completion of this project and on time delivery of the new home to their customers.
