Later on, high-rise condominiums emerged as a solution for quality living style of high-income segment of the country as a high-quality residential solution, convenient living style and as an investment option. This concept has become a long-term business model along with the investment solution which incorporated with it. Therefore, couples of local and foreign developers started high-rise condominium projects mostly in central Colombo area in last few years because of steady demand. Apart from the demand, developers have to concentrate on other factors which influence customers to purchase high-rise condominium units in order to sustain in the business.
