Colombo City Centre Partners, a joint venture between Singapores SilverNeedle Hospitality and Sri Lankas Abans Group, has appointed experienced property manager Richard Buultjens as General Manager of the mixed-use lifestyle development.

Richards 11 years of in-depth knowledge and experience in Colombos property market will help drive the Colombo City Centre to become a world-class development for investors, citizens and business travellers.

He joins from one of Sri Lankas biggest conglomerates, where he headed its residential property sales and marketing. During his tenure there, he was involved in the sales and marketing efforts for more than 1,000 luxury apartments in Colombo.

In addition to his expertise in the residential property market, Richard is also an authority in sales and marketing, with a total of nearly 32 years of experience in the field.

I am excited to head this project, which will be an inviting iconic landmark that enhances the Colombo lifestyle, said Richard. With unblocked views of the Indian Ocean and direct access to a retail mall, its apartments will also offer investors and citizens one of the citys most desirable residential choices.

SilverNeedle Hospitality and the Abans Group have invested more than US$150 million to develop the Colombo City Centre, a mixed-use development located by the Beira Lake in Colombos central business district.

The development comprises residential apartments, a lifestyle mall and a 200-room hotel that will be branded Next Hotels.

Aedas, an award-winning architect, is  leading the design for this project, while Gensler, one of the worlds biggest collaborative design firms, is responsible for designing the apartments.
