Effective 1 January 2013, Dilshan Kodituwakku will oversee the Marketing and Sales functions for The Destiny Mall & Residency, a luxury 280 unit twin tower 44 storey apartment complex and two-storey shopping promenade on the corner of Justice Akbar Mawatha and R.A. De Mel Mawatha Colombo 2.

The Destiny Mall & Residency is the first of many projects to come in Sri Lanka that Imperial Builders, a BOI-approved company and subsidiary company of the Lakhani Group based in Karachi, Pakistan, has embarked on.

Imperial Builders, which started its journey in 1979, has over three decades of experience in the construction industry in Pakistan, having developed multiple mega development projects, residential units, condominiums, resorts, hotels, commercial office projects, and shopping malls, and has

delivered 65,000 houses and 4.5 million sqft of commercial space across Pakistan.

In addition to Imperial Builders, the Lakhani Group has 15 other companies under its umbrella, serving in different fields such as education, textile manufacturing, hospitality, trading, IT, fashion, health and finance.  

Kodituwakku brings with him most recently almost six years of product and marketing experience, managing American Express Platinum Cards and other products, and the Loyalty program and Strategic Relationships for Nations Trust Bank American Express.

Dilshan holds a Degree in Management and Marketing from Deakin University Melbourne Australia.

Commenting on his recent appointment, he said: “We aim to repeatedly offer buyers both local and overseas an opportunity to invest in a luxury apartment or retail space in the heart of Colombo at prices which are value for money. At a time when tourism is exponentially booming and the hub of activity is in central Colombo, we wish to make investment sense and provide ROI for our forward-thinking clientele who choose to invest with us in terms of retail space and/or residential living.

“Destiny Mall & Residency is located conveniently in the CBD and is in walking distance from Galle Face Green, Nawam Mawatha Business District, all Colombo-based five-star hotels, two schools and the Beira Lake. Imperial Builders plans to commence construction in March/April 2013 and finish construction before June 2017. The Destiny apartment sizes ranges from one bed 667 sqft to 5,500 sqft sky villas which are equipped with a pool. I am indeed privileged to be a part of Imperial Builders and the rapid development currently taking place in Sri Lanka to which we at Imperial Builders plan on significantly contributing to in the long term.”
