Shangri-La Increases Investment to US$ 450 Million

The Shangri-La hotel chain, which will be initiating Sri Lanka’s first seven star hotel, has revised its plan of construction and has decided to increase their investment to US $450 million, excluding the cost of the land and along with an increase of rooms from the initial 500 to 625. The hotel is to be built on 10 acres of land overlooking the Galle Face Green.

The land was initially bought in 2010 with a price tag of US $ 125 million and the approval for the construction was received in the same year. With the increase of rooms and a newer plan already paving the way for the new building, the deadline has also gone up, with hopes for the project to see completion in 2017, though the preliminary plan was to finish the project in 2015.

The proposal for the new project has already been approved and the tax concessions will remain the same. With the project seeing fruition, the Electricity Board (CEB) will also have to shift one of their high-tension cables which is getting in the way of the construction and therefore, there are discussions underway between the relevant authorities with regard to this.

Shangri-Ia Colombo will comprise of a sushi bar, steakhouse, seafood market and Irish pub, specialty restaurants with Indian, Islamic, Szechuan and Macanese cuisines, a Sky lounge, meeting facilities, a swimming pool, spa and tennis courts.

In addition to this, Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort and Spa, which is also in the pipeline, is set to include an 18-hole golf course and is set to offer 315 rooms, including 24 suites. Hambantota Resort and Spa will also comprise of a Sanctuary.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is a Hong Kong based company and five star properties are located across Asia, the Middle East, North America, Oceania and Europe. The first hotel of the group was the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore and this opened in 1971.

The chain is the largest Asian-based luxury hotel group in the region and is regarded as one of the world’s finest hotel management companies.

Cable car and Ice Skating rink in Mahagastota by 2015

For the first time in Sri Lanka, MLM Associates will be designing and constructing an ice skating rink in conjunction with the cable car project which was set to be erected in Nuwara Eliya between Lake Gregory and Mahagastota. The entire project will be – completed at a total investment of US $25 million.

The cable car project was due to be completed in April this year but due to difficulties and a lack of support from the Forest Department in the clearing of lands for the construction of permanent structures, the project had to go through a complete redesign.

Due to the redesign of the project and plans to introduce the ice rink along with a gym and a hot water swimming pool, the company was able to bring down the return ticket price from Rs. 1000 to Rs. 700.

We are awaiting the clearance of land in single Tree Mountain to be approved within the next two months in order to be able to work on the permanent structures as the project will also include a luxury’ hotel. We are currently under discussions with the Land Reforms Commission (LRC) in this regard. With the cable cars, the installation and operation will hopefully be completed by April 2015.

The project is being segmented into three phases that would extend to nearly 7.5 km, with the first phase pulling out from Lake Gregory to Single Tree Mountain with an investment of USD nine million alone.

The cable cars would be dual powered; solar and wind and each cabin would have the capacity for 15 persons. Over 750,000 visitors travel to Nuwara Eliya each year and there is hope of attracting 70% of these travellers and holidaymakers for rides on the Cable car.

The first phase of the project that the ongoing construction is being funded by a loan obtained from a Chinese bank.

With communication towers, museums, food courts and administrative offices, the tower would be a communication hub for both public and private sectors. The Lotus Tower will stand 350 metres in height and will be the tallest building in the country once completed.

30,000 Houses by 2015 for Low Income earners in Colombo Srilanka at an affordable price – Prices attached

Authority (UDA) is to begin constructing seven new housing schemes in Colombo for low- income earners.

The authority said its target was 10,000  housing units under the new phase which is scheduled to be completed within 18 months. The project at Applewatta, Maligawatta, Aluth Mawatha in Mattakkuliya Madampitiya. Kimbulala, Bloemendhal and Torrington have been given to local construction companies such as MAGA, Tudawe Brothers, Access, Sierra, State Engineering Corporation, Sanken and CML MTD.

UDA official stated four new housing schemes are to be completed at Aluth Mawatha. Mattakkuliya and one each at the other sites. The houses are being built on plots of land that have been released after a number of low-income earners were resettled in recently completed government housing schemes.

Further stated that while the construction cost of one unit would be Rs. 3.5 million the complete cost of a housing unit including the cost of equipment electricity and a water supply would cost the authority Rs. 6.8 million each. The families relocated in these schemes would have to make an initial payment of Rs. 50,000 and Rs.3,000 each to cover the cost of construction.

The UDA has a target of constructing 30,000 housing units by 2015.  Constructing housing schemes around the city have been a part of a large scale Colombo redevelopment plan. The project looks into issues such as flooding, garbage, the lack of open spaces and usable pavements. We have already resolved most of & them. Housing for low-income earners is the only one remaining to be resolved.

The UDA said that studies showed that there were 68,812 low-income houses in Colombo. “40,000 of them are not fit for living. We started constructing 14,000 housing units in 2011 and the construction of 10,000 is to began,  We hope to complete 30,000 units by 2015.
