The architecture and integrated design for this luxurious property comes from the team of experts at Surath Wickramasinghe Associates, led by renowned Architect and Planner, Dr. Surath Wickramasinghe, a pioneering practitioner of a sustainable approach to architecture and engineering for over four decades. C1 Grade Contactors have been roped in to ensure internationally benchmarked standards in the construction of the project.

Completion and occupancy of the residences is scheduled for mid 2021.
According to the owner and Director of 93 Fife Residencies Private Limited, Mr. Mowjood Mohamed Mohinudeen, the project is a realization of a passion for construction he had for decades. “Property development has always been a passion of mine, coming from a background in the construction industry where I have specialized in the practice as a draughtsman, a registered contractor, and then advancing the ranks at the Department of Buildings, working on many large-scale infrastructure and property development projects including the revolutionary ‘Gam Udawa’ programme,” he said.
“Now, with the backing of our well-established hospital and health servicing, we are able to convert one of our private properties into a niche, exclusive and luxurious residential complex for Colombo’s progressive residents. We will meet the demands of their modern lifestyles, and intelligently design comfortable, energy efficient and lavish homes to elevate their everyday living. 93 Fife Residencies is true luxury, indeed!”
