Blue Mountain Apartments set to commence the construction of Achilleion
Blue Mountain Apartments yesterday broke ground on its most iconic development
project and one of the biggest such projects to date, Achilleion, Colombo’s first seven star luxury
apartment complex, the company said in a statement.
Scheduled for completion in 2020, the mega project is valued at Rs. 30 billion and will usher in
unmatched levels of innovation and opulence to the heart of Sri Lanka’s capital.
Commenting on the successful groundbreaking ceremony of Achilleon, Blue Mountain Group
Chairman Dr. Hiran Hettiarachchi 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 the 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.”
For this project, Blue Mountain Apartments partnered 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 homeowners 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
residents. A fleet of five Mercedes Benz luxury cars will also be available for residents to use at
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 breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean
and the vibrant Marine Drive stretch.
Other facilities include a 24-hour medical centre – the first of its kind to operate in a private
residential complex, a comprehensive library and a private theatre.
The 50-storey twin tower apartment complex will consist of 584 luxury units of one, two or three
bedroom apartments, duplexes and two penthouses with more than 85% of the apartments
enjoying the glorious view of the Indian Ocean.
No expense has been spared to enhance every aspect of the complex to ensure that the project
value remains high. The apartment units (with one, two and three bedrooms) will feature smart
technology, chic and lavish interiors and the finest fittings.
Given the massive response from interested investors since it was unveiled, Blue Mountain
advises interested parties to reserve personalised tours on 0714260260 prior to visiting the site,
so that the company’s executives can ensure prospective buyers truly experience the grandeur of
Achilleion. Earlier this year, Achilleion’s show apartment was unveiled. Rising 100 ft above sea
level, it is believed to be the tallest standalone show apartment in the world.
