‘The Grand’ Ward Place


Sri Lanka’s leading property developer Prime Group makes history with one of Sri Lanka’s most distinguishable architectural masterpieces – ‘The Grand’ Ward Place, a highly exclusive ultra-luxury residential project at the heart of Colombo’s most sought-after address – Ward Place. 

Rising spectacularly to a height of over 160 m as the tallest high-rise in Colombo-7, The Grand is an award-winning real estate project that was recognised as Sri Lanka’s most luxurious condominium at the latest prestigious PropertyGuru Asia Property awards. 

The Grand residences at No. 64, Ward Place are perfectly positioned in the most sophisticated neighbourhood in Colombo surrounded by modern day conveniences, including supermarkets, coffee shops, salons, spas, museums, and many of Sri Lanka’s best private and public schools, and hospitals. 

“Where you live defines who you are. In our relentless pursuit of excellence, we have been able to deliver an extraordinary, wholesome living experience at The Grand with its meticulously appointed interiors, unrivalled architecture, and ultimate levels of privacy and comfort. 

“The Grand joins the ranks of history as the tallest high-rise in Colombo-7 which makes living here an ultra-luxurious experience all on its own. We believe strongly that this presents investors with a once-in-a-life time opportunity to claim ownership of an extremely high-value, consistently appreciating asset at Colombo’s most sought-after address, which is a scarce commodity that can never be replicated,” Prime Group Chairman Premalal Brahmanage stated.

Bringing together the finest attributes of international architectural structure and design, the building draws inspiration from its natural surroundings using timeless, high-quality materials, captivating colour palettes and intentional sustainable design. 

It was designed by renowned architectural agency, The Design Group Five International, and constructed by one of South Asia’s largest and most credible contractors Maga Engineering, along with a host of other world-class interior designers, structural engineers, reviewers, testing consultants, and quantity surveyors. 

A prominent highlight of The Grand is its 71 m infinity pool at a height of over 125 m on the 32nd floor. This is the longest elevated infinity pool in Sri Lanka which affords expansive views of the breath-taking Colombo skyline, to be enjoyed alongside a Sky Bar and restaurant. Also unique to The Grand, all residences are complemented by four stories of double height parking, ensuring each residence is allocated a minimum of two parking spaces and charging bays for electric vehicles. 

With carefully crafted interiors, these residences will debut the finest designer flooring and kitchen finishes coupled with modern technology, to ensure comfort and security for its residents. A key defining feature of this monolithic structure is its availability of carefully designed privacy cavities, which are placed between every apartment to guarantee a high level of privacy for each resident and the welcome experience of living in a detached home – a first in Sri Lankan real estate design. 

The ultra-luxury tower offers three levels of curated indoor and outdoor amenities spread across 50,000 sq ft, on the fifth, 32nd and 37th floors which serve as primary leisure and recreational arenas. 

The Grand proudly incorporates world-class sustainable design features. All residences are encased with double glaze low emission glassing and fitted with numerous light wells running through the building which maximises the use of natural light and ventilation. Its VRV air conditioners are considered the most energy-efficient system in the world, while all bathrooms on the building are naturally ventilated.
