Sri Lanka’s premier blue chip John Keells Holdings PLC (JKH) said the completion of the Cinnamon Life project, previously Waterfront, would be delayed till 2019.

Previously the project was slated to be completed in 2017.

John Keells Chairman Susathan Ratnayake said the US $ 850 million project had seen some “unforeseen delays” and would be completed only in 2019.

For the December quarter (3Q16), JKH saw its net profit falling 10 percent to Rs.3.9 billion over the same period of the previous year.

    I think they should change the building design. Otherwise it will also be included in the list of ugliest buildings in the world like many of projects by the same architect.

    The land should be acquired by the government and either use for the megapolis project or build house for the displace during the MaRa regime.

    What right gov have to acquire a privately held land?

    No big loss, considering this looks likely to be one of the ugliest buildings in Colombo!

    This project is on government land and the poor people was evicted at short notice.

    BanisMama, Keells own the land and have owned it for a very long time. It was not housing, so no one was evicted. Get your facts right before you speak.
