Premier blue chip John Keells Holdings (JKH) yesterday promised that the biggest-ever private sector investment of $ 850 million for Cinnamon Life in Colombo 2 would be an economic game changer for Sri Lanka and an icon in South Asia.
A trendsetting project in Sri Lanka, Cinnamon Life has been launched with pride by Waterfront Properties Ltd., a member of the John Keells Group.
This architectural icon has been envisioned as a 4.5 million sqft integrated resort consisting of an 800-room luxury Cinnamon hotel, avant garde experiential and entertainment haven, residential apartments, state-of-the-art office spaces, a wide variety of food and beverage offerings and ballroom, conferencing, theatre and banqueting spaces.
This mixed development project is Sri Lanka’s largest private sector investment. Cinnamon Life, with its vibrant and inspired concept, is a project of significant national importance and will become the epicentre of modern South Asia.
This integrated resort development will be executed as a ‘life capital’, an architectural heartbeat, where different aspects of life, living, working and playing blend seamlessly, interacting with one another, empowering one another in new and exciting ways.
Internationally renowned architect, artist and engineer, Cecil Balmond, the design visionary behind some of the most popular buildings in the world, including the ArcelorMittal Orbit in London and the CCTV in Beijing, will be bringing this inspired concept to life, while a consortium of contractors headed by Hyundai Engineering and Construction are the contractors for the project.
With Cinnamon Life, Balmond has dreamed up a design that combines a contemporary international feel, with a local flavour. He is determined to use Sri Lanka’s largest private sector investment as a chance to put the nation on the world map.
“Looking at it from an architecture and design point of view, it will be a composition of several forms. It will be like nothing Sri Lanka has ever seen. The integrated nature, unique design and the lifestyle it offers will make this the flagship development of Sri Lanka. The shape and form of the project is such that it will stand as a guard stone for the city,” he emphasizes.
