An Indian construction company SuchirIndia has entered into a collaboration with Sri Lankan firm NEB Rapid Infrastructure Projects to implement a 250-million-dollar project in the suburbs of Colombo.
SuchirIndia, a Hyderabad-based group, in collaboration with NEB Rapid Infrastructure Projects will construct a 40 storeyed building through a special purpose vehicle SUCHIRNEB Projects Pvt Ltd in the first phase.
The project is to construct a tower complex that would comprise a 40 floor commercial complex and a 70 floor Residential tower (in the second phase) at Battaramulla in the Colombo suburbs.
The 1.2 million sq feet structure is expected to be completed in 30 months, company officials said.
When contacted, SUCHIRNEB Director Y Kiron told PTI that the first project of a 40-floor complex is estimated to cost USD 110 million, the second phase of a 70-floor Residential tower is expected to cost USD 140 million.
"Working in close association with Sri Lanka, its various government representative bodies and officials has been a pleasure in view of their unending willingness to support and help on all counts," he said.
"We hope to establish our foot print into Colombo with this project and hope to extend it further and further into new areas," he said. The project will also involve the Sri Lankan government.
