Sri Lanka’s premier real estate developer John Keells Properties, the property arm of John Keells Holdings, is making waves in the sector with its innovative approach to crafting dream spaces and delivering exceptional living experiences.

As a pioneering organisation that lays claim to having revolutionised and redesigned the landscape of the nation, John Keells Properties proudly presents its latest residential project Viman, which is set to transform the contemporary lifestyle in the heart of Ja-Ela.

Aligned with its vision of ‘Creating New Worlds,’ Viman represents another unique new venture from John Keells Properties. Spread across a total land area of six acres and offering a harmonious blend of modern comforts with 418 apartment units, Viman is designed to provide a secure, family friendly environment with convenient access to Colombo city while retaining the natural charm of a small town setting.

The total number of towers is 10 with each containing five floor blocks. Incidentally, there are three types of views that these apartment units offer – namely, the Garden View apartments facing the central park/recreational deck area, the Courtyard View apartments facing a courtyard-like atmosphere with a brilliant canopy of trees and the City View apartments facing the robust town of Ja-Ela proper.

Nayana Mawilmada, President of the Property Sector at John Keells Holdings, states: “We’re extremely excited to launch Viman, the latest frontier of John Keells Properties. We believe that Viman is more than merely a home – it is a lifestyle engulfed in the warmth of a small town.”

“Inspired by the principles of balance, nature and modern convenience, Viman offers a thoughtfully designed collection of residences that embrace eco-consciousness, accessibility to multiple locations and a nurturing sense of community,” he adds.

Located in the bustling town of Ja-Ela, residents will enjoy easy access to an array of conveniences including supermarkets, banks, restaurants and hospitals. Furthermore, Viman offers the distinct advantage of proximity to the Port Access Elevated Highway, facilitating smooth connectivity between Ja-Ela and Colombo. This strategic location not only enhances convenience but also ensures efficient travel for residents and corporates alike.

Nestled within a lush central garden, Viman boasts a range of amenities including a swimming pool, a gymnasium, meditation courts, a clubhouse, a kids’ play area, cycling and walking spaces, and a multipurpose outdoor sports court, in addition to electric vehicle charging.

These additional features create a peaceful and healthy sanctuary for residents to reconnect with themselves, and provide an ideal space for families to enjoy in comfort.

More significantly, Viman will feature energy efficient solar-powered homes and abundant green spaces, and foster a strong sense of community, exemplifying John Keells Properties’ commitment to prioritising both modern comforts and a sustainable lifestyle.
