Purchasing an apartment on payment in instalments is an ideal alternative especially to private sector executives who travel to Colombo daily with their whole family as most such children attend prestigious schools in Colombo. The Sky Residencies high-rise building project was planned to cater to this sector of population with availability of state of the art apartments priced reasonably leading to improvement of quality of life.

This is designed to facilitate 160 apartments with the choice of 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom apartment. Sky Residencies is designed according to the green concept to achieve sustainable development. It will become one of the most sustainable buildings in Sri Lanka and will be unique in its architecture and structural features.

According to the Sri Lanka real estate market brief, KPMG condominium property developments are having average pre construction sale ratio of around 50% while high more prestige development like empire emperor lumiere and trillium tend to have about 80% preconstruction sale ratio.
