Thanks in part to having all necessary approvals prior to the commencement and to the high-quality construction to international standards being maintained, The Mount is seen by astute investors as having high value appreciation and providing a high return.
“Meeting completion deadlines is crucial to investors. Buyers for residency also consider a property’s value on this factor since a delay in completion will result in higher finance costs to the client,” stated Evercore Properties (Pvt.) Ltd Head of Operations and Services Supun Fernando.
Award-winning charted architect Upula Chandrakumara, the project architect of The Mount, said, “I am extremely satisfied with the highquality standards and progress being achieved by the contractor L. H. Piyasena& Co. (Pvt.) Ltd and the professionalism of the project consultants Qualitas Associates (Pvt.) Ltd.”
Upula further stated that The Mount with its unique design, eco-friendly functionalities will stand different, vibrant and elegant from all the apartments in MountLavinia.
Since the launch in July 2018, the project has seen very high interest from buyers due to its advantageous location on Old Quarry Road and centrally situated within walking distance to reach all modern conveniences available in Mount Lavinia.
The Mount promises customers the concept of ‘inclusive luxury’ meaning luxury of choice and luxury of living inside filled with an array of fun activities for adults and children such as an infinity swimming pool, modern gymnasium, barbeque lounge, rooftop recreation area, individual electric car charging points and round the clock security and at a location rich in amenities a few minutes away such as the celebrated Mount Lavinia Beach, S. Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia, supermarkets, banks, international fast food chains, restaurants, hotels and other conveniences and walking distance to the railway station, main highways and bus routes. Well known the world over for its beautiful beaches, Mount Lavinia has converted itself into a preferred habitat for urban dwellers seeking greater space, greater freedom and a cosmopolitan lifestyle.
“With just 35 spacious two and three bedroom apartments, The Mount appears as the preferred choice by many for their dream home. 15 percent of our apartments have already been sold in the first month from launch. It is an ideal investment for the young urban professional who needs to be ‘near, yet far’ from the city and workplace, and have the right environment for him and his family,” stated Evercore Properties (Pvt.) Ltd Head of Sales Michel Patternott.
