Fortress, Ethul Kotte which secured another highly commended award for the ‘Best Affordable Condo Development (Colombo)’ is a luxury apartment complex centrally located in Kotte Road which offers a panoramic view of the Diyawanna Lake and the historical and lushly picturesque city of Kotte.

This proves that Capital Trust Residencies has established itself as the undisputed Best Mid End-Developer in Colombo.”
