Altair, Colombo’s distinctive twin-tower residential high-rise development was among the most attention-grabbing exhibits at the 2015 International Property Show in Dubai, at which 94 of the world’s leading property developers from 30 countries showcased their projects.
Visitors to the stall of Downtown International Real Estate, the agent for Altair in Dubai, were fascinated by the architecturally unique vertical and leaning towers of the development, designed by the globally renowned architect Moshe Safdie, Altair promoter Indocean Developers said.
The scale model of Altair so stood out among the many eye-catching high-rises on display that the Gulf News used a photograph of it in the newspaper’s coverage of the property show, providing readers in the UAE a visual of the iconic development scheduled for completion in 2017.
“The response to Altair in Dubai was most encouraging,” said Pradeep Moraes, Director of Indocean Developers. “This is particularly noteworthy because Dubai is considered the high rise capital of the world, as the emirate is home to 24 of the 100 tallest buildings on the planet.”
Held annually in Dubai for international and local companies involved in the sale and promotion of real estate to individual and institutional investors, the International Property Show is accredited by the Dubai Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA). It is the leading property sales event in Dubai accessible to both consumers and business professionals and offers a perfect platform for international and local real estate markets to showcase their residential, commercial and mixed-use projects and to conduct serious transactional business.
Projected to be a game changer in contemporary living in Sri Lanka, Altair will bring a new dimension in aesthetics to Colombo’s skyline. It is intended to be a one-of-its-kind development in South Asia in terms of architectural design, structural engineering, and living experience. Comprising of two tower blocks, one of 63 storeys which leans in to a taller, 68-storey tower, Altair will offer its 400 apartments spectacular views of the Beira Lake, the Indian Ocean and the city of Colombo. The development’s 1.5 million square feet of high-end eco-friendly living space will be supported by 40,000 square feet of supportive up-market retail space.
