A media gathering and a website launch of ‘The One’ was held at the site recently. The ultra-luxury three towers will comprise two luxury hotels, a luxury retail mall, a commercial office complex which will be the last word in corporate ambience and style and 638 beautifully-crafted apartments, located on 4.3 acres of prime real estate, which will undoubtedly position ‘The One’ as one of the most sought after and ambitious mixed use development projects not just in Sri Lanka but in the region. Construction of ‘The One’ commenced in September 2017 and Phase 1 is due to be completed in December 2021. The apartments will range from 1,700 square feet to 4,000 square feet, comprising two to four bedrooms, with a square foot being priced at $ 450 upwards. With the largest banquet hall at the highest location in Sri Lanka, exquisite restaurants, concierge services which range from airline and private air reservations to personal shopping, housekeeping services, a vacant home care program, a heated swimming pool, a state-of-the-art movie theatre, well-stocked library, high speed elevators that travel at six metres per second, life is made simpler for residents at ‘The One’.  A biometric residential access system and central air conditioning as well as home automation and vehicle identification systems provide avant-garde living at its best!
