Fairway Kurunegala, Fairway Holdings’ second venture out of Colombo was inaugurated recently at its picturesque site in the capital of the North Western Province. Minister of Megapolis and Western Development, Patali Champika Ranawaka was Chief Guest while the Guest of Honour was Kurunegala’s Mayor Thusara Sanjeewa Witharana.

The ceremony was also graced by Minister of Internal Affairs and Wayamba Development S. B. Nawinne, Chairman UDA Dr. Jagath Munasinghe, UDA Director General Sumeda Rathnayake, UDA Director North Western Province W. J. Senevirathna, Acting Director North Western Province Environmental Authority Saman Kumara Lenaduwa, RDA North Western Provincial Director Mrs. P.A.S.M. Marasinghe and Chairman and Managing Director of Maga Engineering Captain Kularatne.

The proposed building, which will be a landmark in Kurunegala, has been conceptualized and designed by Architect Mohan Silva with emphasis given to state-of-the-art conveniences. Seventy five percent of the building’s space will contain 180 luxury apartments, including four penthouses. The balance 25% will contain a shopping mall with leading local and international brands, offices, a food court and beer garden, a supermarket and ample commercial parking. The use of environmentally friendly material for construction will ensure sustainability and longevity. Fairway Holding’s entry into Kurunegala is in recognition of the city’s established importance as a major city in Sri Lanka and a vibrant regional business hub. A focal point in both the central expressway and the railway running from Colombo to the North, the city is a thriving wholesale and retail centre and contains a number of popular schools. Kurunegala was an ancient royal capital for 50 years, from the end of the 13th century to the start of the 14th century. The area has an abundance of religious and cultural sites. The city is surrounded by large rocky outcrops, paddy fields, coconut estates, and lakes.

Fairway Holdings is a pioneer in introducing vertical luxury living to Sri Lanka with its numerous projects mainly based in Colombo and its suburbs. The home-grown conglomerate expanded operations to Galle in its first venture out of Colombo and is currently carrying out two apartment projects in that city. In addition to property development, Fairway Holdings is involved in hospitality, trading, financial services, aviation and leisure and actively promotes local art and culture through various sponsorships and events.
