Sri Lanka’s showpiece high-rise residential development Altair has ignited serious investor interest in Oman, following a recent sales visit targetted at high net worth individuals in the Sultanate.

The visit generated multiple sales to Omani nationals and was followed by a visit by a delegation of the Oman Chamber of Business and Commerce to the Altair office in Colombo and the construction site.

The Omani delegation held discussions with representatives of the management of Indocean Developers, the promoter of Altair, on the investment potential of the apartments offered and the progress of the project and also visited the show apartments at the site.

Altair is represented in the Sultanate by Anselm Perera, CEO of Business Process Outsourcing Services LLC (BPOS) Oman, who counts 42 years of experience in that country, two decades of which were as Chief Operating Officer of HSBC.

Comprising of two tower blocks, one of 63 storeys which leans in to a taller, 68-storey tower, Altair will offer its 400 apartments spectacular views of the Beira Lake, the Indian Ocean and the city of Colombo. The development’s 1.5 million square feet of high-end eco-friendly living space will be supported by 40,000 square feet of supportive up-market retail space. The building is scheduled for completion in 2017.
